      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. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    1. Never going without foils again 2. Vowing to never again go to bed forgetting to gybe back from a little reposition move... I’m writing this leg off- we get a discard, right?
  2. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Hmmm - time to fetch the weed stick...
  3. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Didn't realise the lack of foils was going to penalise me this much - 0.8kts right now against the boats around me... :-(
  4. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Right now - it's 4 hours difference between foils and non-foils, so I'll likely still be in touch with the leaders without them. Think I'll save my SG$28.00 Ridiculous pricing for this game. Makes me so angry that Philippe is so short sighted on this - he would have SO many more paying customers if he was realistic in his charging model. As principal provider of racing game - VR should have more respect for the race and the players and stop being so greedy and lazy with game development.
  5. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    So I’ve not got enough credit for foils for this leg- I wonder how much I’ll be punished for it... Now I’ve spent my credit- I can’t wind it back and chose the buy all option. Annoying !
  6. what is it?

    Haha! Great spot!
  7. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Still struggling to understand how RQ-Naos could leave the boat on the 180 highway for 3 days and come out so massively on top

    @WetHog - you and I have a fun race to the finish - you approaching from the South with over 100nm separation, only 5nm difference DTF... Have a feeling your route will pay - but we shall see. Would help us both if we had more time to log in and tweak! Interesting to see how many of us ended up rounding north on auto TWA, before logging in to adjust towards the finish.... ;-)

    To make the south work - you had to be further south than I was to stay in enough breeze to ride the front with out risk of being dropped off the back... So - I've had to re-position myself further north for safety - which means taking the medicine. Nice transom you've got there

    I found the Zezo VR Chrome plugin - any of you been playing around with it? "VR Dashboard monitors and logs your boat position and other boat parameters."
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Loving the 20kt+ blast, but a bit depressed it's back to Light Jib in 40hrs. Strange, I'm about as sad about it as if I were really out there on the water... Actually, that's bull - I'd be looking forward to the chance to dry out!
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    DTF dead even... Game on!
