      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. Swede 55

    There is a new version of the Swede 55 with higher rig and a new underwater body. I have sailed it and think it is a wonderful boat, very fast and points extremely high upwind. Is is also very well balanced. I knew Knud H. Reimers and he told me yhat he had made both the Swede 55 and the smaller S30 a little under rigged. The latest development of the Swede 55 has, I believe, the right amount of sail.
  2. Best Nonfiction Sailing book

    I highly recommend Godforsaken Sea by Derek Lundy, a brilliant story of the 1996-1997 Vendée Globe. Read it!

    How do you define a competition man? He finishes first and third in the same masturbation contest.
