      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.

    Good to hear you're still cracking Cosmic Egg jokes, aye. Hmmm...You sure Eric isn't in highest possible spiritual spheres worshipping holy grounds of yet unidentified foiling sailable objects? Hope she sails well, the Frog that is.
  5. The cruising boats that make you dream thread...

  7. what is it?

    Russell, Couldn't agree more on a serious photo bank for all Newick's boats. My idea with the pictures was to start a website someday with relevant info on the history of each boat. Is the website of your "project Cheers" already in the air?
  8. what is it?

    Raps, No, not sure if the bottom picture is Quicksilver, I've gathered thousands of pictures of the graceful Newick's over the years and wasn't very accurate documenting them in the beginning. Quicksilver is mentioned in several articles in early NEMA newsletters http://www.nemasail.org/news.html#news For the rest I know little about Quicksilver apart from that she was brought to france decades ago and still sails on the the Atlantic side. Last year she was put up for sale but not sure she was sold. This PDF is from GO site, If you want to know more you have to contact GO I guess. Fiche GOM - QUICK SILVER 07-14.pdf

  10. New imoca boats

    All what is known is that CDK is currently completing a full build-optimisation and refit of the yacht. Pics from here: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1760998817505034&id=1702954373309479 The name of Heerema's sailing team "No Way Back" can be read through the plastic
  11. what is it?

    Reassuring to see Russ and Rob are on speaking terms again and again and again. Why not take the opportunity to make an appointment to go sailing together since you guys have proved for decades now you got so much in common. What else than true love and passion would stand this particular way of communicating. I'm sure it will pay of, Oh and please remember the more than steep learning curve to profit the worldwide proa community. Have fun. Cherio, For Quicksilversuckers:

    Wordt ik nou nog afgezeken door mijn eigen landgenoten? Ik weet het. Wij zijn een stuk onbeschaafder dan de engelsen. maar wel lekker direkt. Translation for the English: Am I being pissed of by my fellow country mates? I know; We the dutch are much less civilised then the citicens of the UK. But somewhat direkt. Dirk de Ridder was for the same reason expelled from the Oracle team. (I suspect by BA). Have ever seen his resume? 1998 - Whitbread Round the World Race, 2e 1999 - Tour de France à la Voile, Mumm 36, 1999 - WK, Soling, 1999 - EK, Soling, 2000 - Kieler Zeilweek, Soling 2000 - OS, Soling, 4e 2002 - Volvo Ocean Race, winnaar 2006 - Volvo Ocean Race, 2e 2006 - MedCup, TP52, winnaar 2007 - Hublot Palmavela Trophy, TP52, winnaar 2010 - America's Cup, winnaar compared to; BA Gaat Kessboomuh jaguh man, badeend. You give speaking double Dutch a bad name. Lache.. I am 54 years old and the last time I hunted old christmas trees for the annual christmas tree burning at new year is like 40 years ago. christmass tree burning.jpg Sigh…...
  13. cruising the med - august '16

    On the contrary, that sounds like perfect conditions for hiring a Pogo 12.50 from FastSailing.gr I watched the film with the sound turned down with woman's hour (BBC radio 4) on in the background as a 4 knot shit box sailor the manly fists raised in the air, the bicep flashing, adrenaline and testosterone was immensely entertaining. It was great (and also pretty funny) to see blokes having ape-man fun. However, once you have hit 25 knots...... then what? D Go for 25.1???
