      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 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    (2/2) I however suspect a more southerly route, as this routing is based off some very favourable conditions in the southern ocean: Very well timed, but the time of this is Mon 20th - a bit too far out to be high likelihood.
  2. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    (1/2) Tried a routing from DF's 1900 psn:
  3. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    Recent-ish scatterometry data of where the fleet is: (At 1900 DF was at 03N, 028.5W)

  6. Nav station lee cloth

    What strikes me as most odd (!) about that is the locker with VHF etc in it: Surely that's quite inconvenient when one is sat at the chart table?

    Mate, you seem quite happy to accuse others of ad hominem attacks, yet that's clearly what this is.

    Well, this certainly sounds like an unbiased introduction...

    One hates to sound pedantic but they go to South Shields, not Newcastle. As a graduate of that fine institution, I felt it necessary to point this out.

    Will this be available on the web for those based outside the US?

    Certainly looks the part: http://histoiredeshalfs.com/Histoire des 40' monos/CQ119.htm Did alright as Otio Bastide with Kito de Pavant driving.
  15. J 121

    The bobstay is I think a new idea for a stock J (I've seen attachments bobstayed half-ish way along the sprit). Is this for increased luff tensions on Code Zeros and the like, or is it a way of reducing the layup (and thus weight) of the sprit itself?
