      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

    Just wondering, is 'Grubbie' your sock puppet?
  2. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Is safe to assume the lawyers are running the show now, so don't expect any new info to be released soon. Last year we had a deadly accident in a local regatta, and suddenly info like the sailing instructions disappeared from the web site ...

    No one thought is was possible, but this threat has become the first implementation of perpetuum mobile. No need to feed it any new facts or figures, it will just continue indefinitely.
  4. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Wind, is the link with sailing that's Vestas after. Not dead and mayhem.
  5. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    I had the same feeling yesterday.
  6. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Congrats for the stupidest question in the threat. No need to get personal when you're out of arguments, this is not a pissing contest.

    A 12,5Ton VOR65 can sink a descend size of fishing boat I think, especially if runs over it and pushes the gangway under water. Even if the general consensus is that Vestas hit the fishing boat, I doesn't automatically mean it's (only) their fault.

    I thought it was because they only had an on/off switch instead of a throttle ;-)
  9. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Than why the damage to the bottom from the bow on? The hole can be caused by the pilot house. It's all just guessing, we don't even know what type of boat they hit.
  10. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    No, to far out.
  11. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    No 'lots of current' for the moment, already discussed before.
  12. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    The truth is in the middle I guess. Anyway, I would expect them pop-up. Just trying to get a better understanding on the AIS range and how this could influence tactics.
  13. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Scally 10nm out and still no update on MarineTraffic. Still in stealth mode, or MarineTraffic lagging behind?
  14. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Silence please, whey're watching the games!
  15. VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Yes it's dropping when they approach the runway, but according to the VOR tracker it should have dropped already an hour ago. TWS on Scally is still showing double the speed. Windy.com is also a forecast but shows more accurate numbers. And of course, just now TWS on Sally drops considerably...
