      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. How good was it to see oats have to duck everyone else.
  2. The spare foil could be a straight/curved foil with bolt on tip? This could allow the foil to be inserted from the deck. The tip is bolted on after the horizontal section is installed. It might not be as efficient as the original foil but gives better sideways stability than a flat foil. This solution lets you carry a spare horizontal section for use either side and a spare separate port or stbd tip saves weight on carrying two full spares. A spare foil might also be smaller than the original. Easier installation at sea, Better performance than no foil, less weight penalty than a full size spare. Its all speculation but it will be cool to see what happens either way.
  3. This is the best.
  4. Grab some carbon, blue paint, and build a boat. The thing would be half finished by now.
  5. Vestas should be allowed to purchase or charter a VO70 to continue to participate in each leg. They could continue to participate "unofficially" like Pen Duick VI in the 1977 race. It would be awesome to have a VO70 to watch among the current boats. If a new VOD65 is then built they could return to "official" racing with the new boat.
