      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. Foiling the Caribbean 600

    Video of the start. Can see CQS struggling with boat speed at the start and the cat Fujin before the capsize.
  2. Foiling the Caribbean 600

    Pretty obvious to me a well prepared boat like Rambler 88 is ahead of the record and still racing whereas CQS has retired. Between breakages and failures really think CQS is a complete waste of time.
  3. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Love this..! Nice story...
  4. Carrabean 600

    We have Rambler88, CQS and the RP90 ex Rambler challenging for Line Honors. Rambler8& will be too fast for both but can CQS beat the old RP90? Some other good boats racing in the middle groups.
  5. Oracle Team USA

    Last time I checked Oracle were not competing in the next Americas cup.! Does anyone actually know what's happening in the AC36?
  6. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    I think it's obvious if you take away the Doldrums or the drifting conditions the bottom 3 boats aren't good enough to win the race overall IMO. So at the end of the day Dongfeng and Mapfre have a substantial speed advantage over the other boats. Some of the legs won't offer the back markers the opportunity to simply plot a better route. It's a two boat race IMO so tell me if you really believe any of the others can win this race overall?
  7. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    I like Brunel right now. Don't know why? LOL
  8. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    This could take forever...? Going to need lots of thread drift too..!
  9. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Plenty of glue up ahead..! Can Libby get the scally through ok?
  10. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    So far Scallywag would be wishing every leg had the doldrums? Cant match the others boat for boat but loves separating and sailing their own course. Brunel out of the glue but with 2200 miles to go and cyclones lurking in the distance this race is far from over. Just witnessed how many miles a boat can put on another when one is parked and the other at full speed. If Scally can finish second in this leg they will be sitting better than expected on the points table.
  11. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    And then there were 2...!
  12. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    will hold you to that one and hope your right? He didn't do too well en route to Honkers...
  13. Oracle Team USA

    Random was bullied by Jimmy Spithill as a kid. Also his Visa was rejected trying to enter the USA a few years back and he has had a huge grudge to bear ever since. He also has a phobia that TNZ will not retain the cup for very long . Once you understand these mitigating circumstances you'll understand his behaviour. Unlike most people who are looking to the AC36 Random needs to focus his efforts on the past because NZ won and it comforts him. Off course behind that is the excruciating loss from 8-1 up that he has never gotten over. He was ripped to pieces and comforts himself by insisting Oracle cheated as how else could they have won? Certainly a tragic case about a broken man who now "Randomly" walks the streets seeking consolation wherever he can.!
  14. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    What makes me madder is their gun laws or lack of are driven by political power. The gun owners wield too much voting power. Unfortunately until this changes this sort of thing will continue to happen. Mentally unstable people have access to guns.
  15. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Yes Scally will get rolled by the Spanish. They seem to have roughly the same breeze as the others. Interestingly TTOP and Brunel also lost miles on the other boats. Will be interesting to see if Akzo can hold on to their lead and if Mapfre will continue their charge?
