      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

    I dunno, maybe I am just a grumpy old has-been as one writer referred to me after I dared criticize the VOR boats as being unseaworthy. Maybe I should put an oar over my shoulder and start walking inland until someone asks me what an oar is for. Or maybe not…:) – Brian Hancock Start walking Brian......................

    It is a shame this thread has not died. i really don't care about the guy even though I sailed against him in two Whitbreads. I met and kept in touch with a bunch of people during those far off years but he was always the "who brought the fucking midget". Obviously smart but not a people person and in the haze of recollection never heard of him being a hard out downwind driver, personality, piss drinker or lady killer. I can name many who were the aforementioned...................................

  12. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    More about we are 3 minutes from the mark can we furl set up pack, stack, and go upwind on a long starboard. Not rounding a mark with sails down, trying to peel etc
  13. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    i always wonder why after all the training and knowledge teams continually fuck up on timing with sail changes. Bread and butter for navigators. SHKS was by far the worst, and MAPRE the best although i think DF made a good early decision on a small jib, going to be bumpy by now........
