      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. Gitana 17 on Foils

    As with all new builds, I‎t takes time to dial her in and work out any deficiencies, I‎t looks like Gitana 17 has the potential too sail very quickly, and with time and more races under her belt, we will find out.
  2. Gitana 17 on Foils

    I‎t will be interesting too hear the real story from the crew.......
  3. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Is there any video of them actually sailing the nymph.?
  4. Transat Jacques Vabre

    Very interesting, but a new boat always takes time to dial in. I would have expected Gitana too be more efficient, but let’s wait and see what the story is once they get in .... love the design.
  5. Lol, what’s good for the goose............
  6. What's Going Down in Saudi Arabia?

    Ah, The duel citizen, chooses a country where he is less likely to be assasinated. Interesting times..... this has legs.....
  7. Canada infuriates TP Partners

    More yawning
  8. Foils

  9. I can usually be found lurking in the awesome multihulls section, now that there’s some new 40 knot tris recently launched..... go Gitana 17 go.....
  10. Lol. Keep drinking the koolaid...... Anyone that didn’t see the dog and pony show from day one, is part of the problem. Even us Canadians up north, Had a good chuckle over the predetermined winner, that lost in the final.
  11. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    I’ll throw in for a fresh carton of D batteries. You just can’t have enough on a boat.
  12. Banque Populaire

    It’s awesome too see these new faster tris all hitting the water, can’t wait too see how they do once their dialed in....
  13. Maserati on Foils

    I hope Maserati has a good safe transit too Asia on her regular boards.
  14. Gitana 17 on Foils

    That’s why we all love multihulls sooooooooooooo much.
  15. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Yes and sometimes, you can even get elected president of the USA. What an amazing country you have there.. it’s all inclusive...... “Clowns are the pegs on which the circus is hung” P.T. Barnum
  16. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

  17. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Youll need some music........
  18. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Ha Ha Ha.......It’s April 1st right..? The only thing accurate in the story is, the gullible non sailing audience eating it up.. Those were the healthiest four ship wrecked, dogs and people I’ve ever seen pictures of. great scam, keep playing it..... ps, did you all sit around together over a drink and read the crowhurst story aloud, then set it all up ?
  19. SCIENCE!

    This thread needs tunes.......
  20. Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    This is great news. These guys are amazing.....
  21. Scary Neel 45 Build Issues

    Interesting. Your f27 will sail circles around the Neel. Form follows function. If your looking for a home, build it on land. If your looking to go multihull voyaging pick a boat that sails very well, or you may be very disappointed. Best too leave all the junk you don’t need, on land. I know which tool I’d choose for the job....
  22. Scary Neel 45 Build Issues

    I think you’ve answered your own question.... no it won’t sail out of its own way.... theres far too much windage too sail well.... Use this trimaran as a excellent reference point for “ sails really awesome”
  23. Radio Control Multihulls

    heres one with a matching skirt and jacket...........
