      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. Inside scoop - here's the new boat. Pete's been relegated to the bow. http://yachtshots.photoshelter.com/gallery-image/ETNZ-visit-RPNYC/G0000b7sxd9Fvafo/I0000OQU1P2VahzU And is Chris the new Jason?
  2. Not the best of days for a parade in Welly - assuming they could even get a plane in
  3. Raptorsailor: Surely Chumbawamba's "I get knocked down..." for the pitch-pole
  4. Floundering? For fuck sake, the media in this country fucks me off no fucking end. The boat gets munted by a container and he brings the broken thing to safety and he's 'floundering'? Our media is so fucked up the arse by 'reality' shows and the cult of its own personality it can't fucking see real reality. The general pop thinks squat about sailing ignoring the contribution its own sailors have made in the world, ignoring the Everest of the sea while celebrating one of the guys who first summited Everest. Fucktards
  5. Where do I buy this shirt? Got to have one! TeeSpring.com
  6. Bakewell-White 640 built by MG Composites in NZ for an Aussie client
