      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.

  2. Cammas has proven again and again that he can commit Groupama to a project and succeed. Since 2010 his track record is exceptional in high profile events, except in Extreme 40ft series, winning on his first Volvo and Little AC attempts. But I still question if Groupama's EUR20m budget will be enough, and how much the Marine Nationale can commit to match the technical capabilities of other well funded teams. What is certain is that the top tier French sailor/designer/builders offer unmatched expertise, but a few have already been poached, so Mr. Cammas has got a challenging recruitment job coming up if he wants to make this a French team, and a smaller budget than his 2011-2012 Volvo campaign to do it with.
  3. Part of the development came from Macif (mast step location and daggerboards I would think) the lines seem very "VO70" to me.
  4. I tried my best to give you a decent translation in English language. Read: http://chevaliertaglang.blogspot.fr/2014/12/the-100-footers-in-sydney-hobart-race.html
