      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. "Anegada" means "flooded" in spanish ... the name says it all.
  2. To stop shooting at the rescuers would be a thoughtful idea.
  3. Ah ! The heresy !!
  4. I did a quick search for "Houston floods history" Building boats instead of houses would seem to make sense there. The Japanese have earthquakes, they build to withstand (most of) them. Seems cheaper in the long run with less loss of humans lives.
  5. Paul Meilhat & cia. on SMA and Nikata final run will be interesting, but there are a lot of V65 before the next IMOCA. Impressive.
  6. They hear you
  7. Jean Pierre Dick and Boris Hermann have made a different choice, going west of the exclusion zone there.
  8. Jet Service V had the same problems: too fast for the rest, it was banned and the 60' "standard" was created. After Joyon and Coville had some records broken with their 100' tris and the 60' ORMA fleet was quite reduced La Route du Rhum allowed again any sized boat. And now history repeats itself ... 32 meters instead of 60 feet, and crewed instead of solo, but it certainly is a déjà vu.
  9. Aesthetically speaking I still prefer Macif. Maybe in a couple of weeks I'll change my mind.
  10. Now the tracker clock is stoped 4 11 10 23 15 hours less, amazing. What is Gabart doing ?
  11. The tracker shows a short jibe, going north, not enough zoom and I couldn't see the line and wrongly assumed it was crossed and was going to some english port. Last 5 miles are going to be long.
  12. The tracker says "Arrivée!" Nope Oops! there was a jibe or something ....?
  13. Keeping it at 30 kn, 1h 30' to go.
  14. At this pace the new record will be less than 4d 12h
  15. DISTANCE PARCOURUE SUR 24H : 637.8 NM DISTANCE AU BUT : 637.2 NM From the cartographie after 3d 13h 50' That could be 10 hours faster than last Joyon record easily !
