      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. Another fatality for Clipper Around the World.

    Very sad, and not good. I’m sure MAIB will investigate.
  2. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    And some eye protection. I’d actually go with a full face helmet. Shit doesn’t happen until it does.
  3. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Aka one design racing.
  4. Foiling Aero

    Haven’t seen this before. New?
  5. Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    826, and more to come. Holy shit. https://twitter.com/francoisgabart/status/930496883537129472
  6. VPP for dinghies and skiffs

    The RYA developed a datalogger with Caterham, so must have done some work. Probably not publicly available, though. http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/news/150612
  7. House batteries

    So what’s your best source of electrolyte?
  8. Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Deja vu all over again.
  9. Coolboats to admire

    Gulvain ugly? For shame! Definitely cool. Especially for 1949. And doubly so for being the first offshore boat in aluminium. Jack Laurent Giles smashes another six.
  10. A big project!

    Something tells me he watches a certain amount of Casey Neistat. NTTAWWT.
  11. Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    The two don't necessarily correlate.
  12. 525's - "The Original Sport Boat"

    Think these have a much stronger claim to be the original sportboat.
