      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.

    Mostly above 60 N
  1. World Match Racing Tour

    Not a lot of action here . What's up? anybody knows ?
  2. Carrabean 600

    I think cqs has abandoned the race like so many others ...and there's another thread
  3. Foiling the Caribbean 600

    seems like the cookson 50 Privateer is quite a lot faster than the Elliott 52ss Outsider. Better sailors? Edit: hmm looks like they've stopped
  4. Foiling the Caribbean 600

    Looks windy Nice conditions
  5. Mothquito

    Foiling Mothquito . Not sure about the double T-rudder and the gennaker, but interesting design overall
  6. Foiling the Caribbean 600

    It's not like they've a history of capsizing hehe;)
  7. Foiling the Caribbean 600

    So I see the Volvo 70 warrior is owned by the Usmma foundation. I suppose it doesn't have to do anything with mixed martial art on a boat?
  8. Foiling the Caribbean 600

    So will they go full throttle from the start? How much swell/waves can it deal with? Nice wind predictions anyway.
  9. Yes, actually it probably was from the Prevost interview
  10. Future Olympic lightweight-female dinghy

    Laser 4.7 - hull way too heavy for the sail area Europe - with current rules, crew weight around 70 Aero - looks interesting, no personal experience Waszp or other foiling - Will probably not be implemented as a "light-weight female dinghy"
  11. 60 ft is way too small for a RTW trimaran. I think at the minimum, it has to be at least 85 or that is what I remember from the Verdier interview.
  12. Not sure about the boat, but the race is too long. It needs fewer legs. These extra European and Chinese Legs makes the race too complicated. Keep it simple. Why not create a separate race to satisfy the Chinese market
  13. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    So was reading Hancock about the collision and one of his comments was that they should've had "spotlights panning the water". Pretty sure it wouldn't have been enough with the average pocket flash light to spot a dark boat in the middle of the night
  14. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Or dismasted?
  15. Volvo 65's

    would be my dream to see 10 Fazisis in the next VOR......
