      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. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    I just noticed the new blue sailing gloves. So funny. Why are those needed for cruising? And more over when the boat is moored up!

    This thread is ridiculous. I hate it. It has little, to nothing to do with sailing, at least sailing as I recognize it. I wish this thread was gone but I'm hooked and keep coming back for posts like this!

    For a minute I thought you said "Thomas 35" and speed in the same sentence, but then I reread!

    Lake Michigan is an IMS graveyard. The tradition continues...

    So what's is next step? I read something about him being there for 3 months? Why the wait? This thread will get stale again waiting, unless the dock comedy keeps giving!

    Haha. Good call. In my head he still landed in Fiji. Yesterday felt like a Monday...

    Lots of speculation on this voyage. Why doesn't the SAer based on Fiji go and talk with him?!
  8. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    Looking at Rimas last posted location has anyone done the math and looked at weather and current to see if was even feasible for him to reach Saipan from his last known location near Fiji in XXX days? Which was to the prevailing winds and current run in that part of the Pacific? All seems odd but I haven't seen much discussion trying to map together his route from Fiji to Saipan...

    Like I said, I hate this thread.
  10. Sailing around the world in a San Juan 24

    I hate this thread. It's become garbage with tired jokes and general chatter about any/everything.... I still check every day though as I am curious if the boat will turn up on the beach. Is there any positive floatation or is it on the bottom? This is getting up there with Malaysia Fight 370 and the Roswell Landings....

    What's wrong with people?! Why not get something like this? I'm sure Rimas could have made his trip in this... http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1990/Beneteau-First-285-3114473/VA/United-States#.WdKb0k3fOPw

    Can someone give a summary of the "2016 after party incident" that got Scott band from future races? I was discussed on here but I can't remember details...
