      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. Team Actual west-ward tour

    What do you mean ? Getting out there to recover it for yourself ? Or help the recovery ? In their last news they say that the satellite beacons on the boat stopped emitting, and that this is probably due to it having partly sunk.
  2. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    DF is losing 3 or 4 miles to mf since 4 or 5 scheds or something, what's going on ?
  3. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    What is the deal exactly with Dongfeng not receiving the forecasts ? Telecom equipment not working or what ?
  4. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Funny how the routing thingy on the VOR Tracker gets all of them crashing into NZ, approaching on the wrong side of the Island
  5. Banque Populaire IX

    The word "bateau"(direct boat correspondance) is masculine , (there are no genderless nouns in French), however a lot of nouns designating some kind of boats are feminine like "goelette" , "fregate", "yole", "barque", "vedette" , but some others are masculine like "gallion" , "catamaran" , "trimaran" "cargo", "paquebot", "chalutier", etc. So the sentence "elle est très rapide" could occur if for instance it is clear that it refers to a "goellette" : "cette goelette a traversée l'atlantique en 10 jours, elle est vraiment très rapide". By the way banque pop IX juste did a transat and is in Gadeloupe : http://www.guadeloupe.franceantilles.mobi/actualite/sports/preparation-de-la-route-du-rhum-armel-le-cleac-h-en-moins-de-7-jours-en-guadeloupe-470381.php http://www.voile.banquepopulaire.fr/news/maxi-banque-populaire-ix-et-six-jours-plus-tard-la-guadeloupe Hope we will get some new footage from this
  6. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Is brunel the only boat to have changed their sails? They can choose on which leg they take the second set?

  10. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

  11. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Just hope Vestas didn't completely break and make it in front of mapfre, only thing that matters!
  12. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    On PRO mode they are consistantly faster than Vestas for quite a while (better angle), Go the Dong GO !!

  15. Spindrift 2 Jules Verne 2017

    ".@YannGuichard, skipper of Spindrift 2, has made the difficult decision to return to Brest after receiving the latest weather files at 8pm, which show very light winds at Ushant. It is anticipated that the team will aim to restart in about five days on the 14/15 January." https://twitter.com/spindriftracing/status/950461086884614144 Strange, that tweet doesn't want to paste properly, deleted ?
