      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.

  9. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    From the NZ Herald 2 hours ago........................ South China Morning Post reports that the fishing boat, from Mainland China, had sunk and ten crew members had fallen into the sea. "One [fishing boat] crew member was seriously injured and taken to hospital by helicopter. He was confirmed dead at 6.30am," the paper reports. Race officials say that Vestas 11th Hour Racing had retired from the leg and was proceeding under its own power to Hong Kong. A statement on the Volvo Ocean Race's official website said all of the crew on Vestas 11th Hour Racing are safe. "Their boat suffered damage and the team has officially retired from the leg, but the team is able to motor to shore." Vestas also released a statement to confirm that all of the crew are safe. "Their boat suffered damage and the team has officially retired from the leg, but the team is able to motor to shore," it said. Photos show a gouge to the side of the yacht's hull. "Our first thought is that this is terrible news," AP reported Dongfeng skipper Charles Caudrelier saying. "We are of course very sad to hear it and very concerned about the fishing boat. It is always very dangerous when sailing in these fishing areas when there are so many boats and some have no lights. Obviously this is very bad news for these fishermen, the Volvo Ocean Race and for Vestas." Race Control at Volvo Ocean Race headquarters was informed of the collision by the team moments after it happened at approximately 17:23 UTC. The Vestas 11th Hour Racing team issued a Mayday distress call on behalf of the other vessel, alerting the Hong Kong Marine Rescue Coordination Centre (HKMRCC) and undertook a search and rescue mission. HKMRCC told Race Control that a commercial vessel in the area was able to rescue nine of the crew and that a tenth crew member was taken by helicopter to hospital. Race officials say more information will be released as it becomes available. Kiwi yachtsman Peter Burling had a lucky escape in the race just before Christmas when his Dutch entry Team Brunel yacht was struck by a rogue wave near the Antarctic Ice Exclusion Zone. The force of the wave sent Burling and teammate Annie Lush into the guard rail at the back of the boat. Burling was unhurt and "doing well" but Britain's Lush was left with pain down her right side as she struggled to move her right leg.

    Nicco has always impressed me as both a sailor, skipper and human being, the best thing AKZO could do is realise this and make him skipper. Outstanding guy, lets see what changes are made on BRUNEL, by far the worst performer......................

    Of course they are detained, someone died and they all need to be interviewed..........................
  12. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    It will be some time before we know anything about what happened. Because there has been a fatality the Police need to investigate, then insurance and then a serious repair (although that section is probably already being made in Persico). Sadly they will not be going anywhere for some time.............
