      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 '17-'18 - THE GAME

    What was the name of our exclusive night club several of us joined on the Cape Horn leg in the last edition? 62S or something? Doesn't look like there will be any point joining it this leg. Will have to search the forum for the name and entrance requirement so we can have a bigger membership this edition later in the race!
  2. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    26.7 knots or thereabouts I think
  3. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    HKG1203 into the top ten, Go hard!
  4. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Sleep tight, I'll wave if I can get past!!
  5. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    HKG, Prowler and Breitling, I cant believe how quickly I was passed by you guys early this morning. Well done. Looks like my foredeck crew stuffed up the staysail change In reality though, with the speed we are moving at, even one or two degrees off optimum course equals big losses. Sleeping during the time of maximum speed did not pay off for me! Now to cling on to the back of the leaders and hope to get sucked back in again!
  6. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I WILL be asleep through my fastest speeds. Hopefully the on watch crew doendoent stuff up changing to the staysail!
  7. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Look where the leader is heading!
  8. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    wind really starting to swing now
  9. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Exactly the same, my wind always about 0.4 to 0.5 knots below others who are supposed to be in less wind. I wonder if something is up? Just cleared my cache too
  10. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    And Foils don't kick in until 14 knots of boat speed or something like that
  11. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    No punishment. Unless you change course dramatically at same time.
  12. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    If you know you need to do something course wise, the polar curve is very flat around this windspeed between 110 and 130 TWA. Much better than trying to soak down at lower windspeeds.
  13. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    I don't think you can overrule it. I remember in leg 1 I was running down a wind strength line and angle where it kept swapping from Code 0 to Spinnaker every minute and I think I couldn't turn it off. I remember being mighty pissed off about it, enough so I don't use it in similar circumstances any more.
  14. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    1st place was fun for the hour or so it lasted! Curently a Swede is holding off the few Frenchies that got past me
  15. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    11 hours between card barrels and only 3 cards now. Crooks.
