      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.

    Official tracker has C rounding the corner in the lead now.
  2. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Comanche back in the lead on tracker and there she will stay for a couple of hours at least. Hope I can stay up to see what happens in the river...

    Odds that WO passes in the light air of the river and then loses line honors on a time penalty? Ugh, would hate to see that, but at the same time, would make the forums lively for awhile...
  4. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Happy Thanksgiving for the Americans out there!
  5. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Go the Vestas! Hey Varan - is your tag from the old Godzilla nemesis Varan the Unbelievable? I thought the new AC boat looks like the old Varan monster.
  6. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Things are looking better for Charlie and crew - go the Vestas! Man... 'go the Vestas' ... they need a good nick name... Makes me want to root for DongFeng just for the fun of typing 'go the Dong!'. Ah well, could be worse. Could be saying 'go the AkzoNobel'.

    Looks like we have a better view on what drone they are using (Phantom 4?). (Tony F-18 called it back on the leg 1 thread.)

    I think it is mostly SiFi doubling down on the west side. Doesn't look good right now, but I wouldn't bet against him to get Vestas back on the podium by the finish.

    Team Antifa prefers the port tack...
  10. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Benefits of having a wind company as the corporate sponsor...
  11. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Crazy to be sitting on my ass eating pizza while watching drone footage a few hours old from a sailboat 600 miles off the coast of Africa racing at 20kts.
  12. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Yeah, I jumped the gun on that call. Wishful thinking...
  13. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Vestas in a good position, methinks... 2nd furtherest west + 2nd furtherest south = furtherest, furtherest. https://www.vesselfinder.com/?mmsi=319119600
