      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. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Dude So wrong most commercial vessels are not restricted in there ability to maneuver. Maybe into the tac but otherwise just common courtesy to stay out of the way
  2. j105 class health?

    Racing for the 105's is outside. we had a blast last year big breeze for the first 2 days then it eased off on Sunday. It's a bit of a hike but I think it's worth it. I am a homer though
  3. j105 class health?

  10. Google & Babel Yacht Brokers

    I'm not sure but I think I have one of those self emptying decks also.
  11. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    So maybe asked and answered but, From the Heli footage after the start I noticed that MAPFRE was using a second outrigger forward by the shrouds. That was the first time I've seen that. Seem like it would certainly help when 4 sail reaching like that surprised the other boats aren't using them.
  12. Ok, just how ... (did I do the dots right)

    I thought it was 4 dots ....
  13. Staysails

    Take it to the blooper thread

  15. I'm pretty sure we can find our fair share of Ignorance around here. Not sure if that will help us ignore this post.
