      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. So what news of Syd's new ride?

    is there anything out there that suggests there is a keel issue ? or just a general comment ? rmb did not mention anything remarkable note the 2011 Caribbean campaign had plenty of breeze, enough to see over 30knts of boatspeed in any case Think that comment was not aimed at the boat, but based on the fact that the Geoff's TP dropped her keel the first time they raced her to the Philippines. Thanks mate - yes, I wasn't casting aspersions on GR keel bolts.

    Lighter winds + Geoff Hill connection seems to be confirmed by GR entry into China Sea Race: http://www.sail-world.com/UK/50th-anniversary-Rolex-China-Sea-Race-2012/93122. Let's hope the keel is well attached.
