      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.

  1. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Are you really that much of a fucking idiot?
  2. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Brilliant! Let’s set a finish 12 Miles offshore.
  3. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    That’s the problem with these people who like to point out problems with the current product: they never offer a better, alternative solutions. Just a bunch of Bitching and Moaning.
  4. Chicago Area III

    Just think: the end of summer is less than 6 months away.
  5. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Please keep this thread going for the remainder of the race so all of this bull shit has a place to land.
  6. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    If no work has been done, why is she still in HK? Wouldn’t it make more sense to get a head start on the fleet and ship her to Auckland? The replacement parts or section could be fabricated while she’s in transit? What are the chances of her missing the parade around the Horn at this point?

    This thread is about as interesting as staring at these tits

  9. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Thanks for the very useful summary! One more cliffs notes question that I don’t care to scroll through 13 pages to find the answer to: what’s with the big wiggle/waggle in Brunel’s track? T-storm or reef-dodging?
  10. would you sack mark richards ?

    Sailor Girl Nic interviewed her before the race. Was on her FB page.
  11. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    It’s a fucking dick move by the most arrogant Dick in the Southern Hemisphere. Anything that happened after that is moot. What if everyone on the water treated the rules as Ricko did in that situation? Especially not long after he totally punted on the start? One blow to his overly enormous ego, then he fouls a ROW boat, and said “Fuck it! Take me to the room.” Wild Oats sailed a hell of a race after that incident, but she should retire or be DSQ’d.
  12. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Not really sure that routing around or through Madeira has ever been much of an issue with leverage or otherwise the way the Canaries come into play. I believe right now they’re all just gybing downwind in a blow trying to stay in full-on Send It mode as long as possible.
  13. il mostro attempting chi-mac speed run record

    Kudos to Il Mostro and crew for setting this record in quite grand fashion. Anyone who has sailed this course, during the #cycracetomackinac or not, knows how tough of an accomplishment this truly is. Sailing under the Mackinac Bridge less than 18 hours after you leave Chicago is fucking sending it! Well done, men. Well done.
  14. il mostro attempting chi-mac speed run record

    12 hours in with under 100 NM DTF. Currently doing 20 kts boat speed not too far from the north, mid-Lake buoy which is currently reporting SW winds @ 22-27 kts. & 6.6 foot waves. Sending it!
  15. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    If that. I'd imagine that any sail that goes up to the masthead on the Big Injun won't cost less than 6 figures, and that's in USD.
