      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. the grand tour premieres this week

    Down to one tent and not flying it round the world. Bit of a hatchet taken to the budget? Driver is @AbbieEaton44
  3. IIRC, the Tom Ehman Super 12 proposal was for OD Farr designed ‘spirit of tradition’ 12s, and unconnected to any of the work done on any fourth rule proposal for the International rule. The super12s were very different from the planing form of the IC-37. I do wonder when the last time an owner commissioned a designer for a complete design for a one-off boat though. AIUI, the new TPs being built for next year share hull shapes - the Seahorse build table suggests three different hulls shapes for the nine(?), with presumably most differences in deck layout. Similarly, most Fast40+s seem to be short run production boats, again with changes to deck layout. Is the fully custom race keel boat shorter than a WallyCento dead?(*) * (Exception one new Six for the King of Spain this year). Super 12

    According to Jason Ker's articles in Seahorse, the ORC VPP underwent some huge changes a couple of years ago. AIUI, no longer really related at all to the original IMS (MHS) VPP.

    Ah, the original Flight of the Phoenix.

    Less than 6 causes problems. Normal recommendation is 7-10.

  11. Another fatality for Clipper Around the World.

    Very sad, and not good. I’m sure MAIB will investigate.
  12. 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.
