      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

    Time and again Ive resisted the temptation to harden up a few degrees and converge towards tessa. But I'm not blinking! Holding my line because you can be sure any move will be wrong. I am also working on theproviso that being further south can't hurt!

    Wow, Planning on a full night of sleep here. Guess the forecast will change knowing my luck!
  3. VOR '17-'18 - THE GAME

    Remember the time it ran above the fleet along the rhumb line when heaps were heading the wrong direction going for 24 hour records and every man and his dog were dropping off the pilot boat above the beating fleet and beam reaching down ahead of the leaders! I think it was leaving China. I got banned from the forum for politely suggesting that the situation was not correct. The mod called me a troublemaker.

    Passing lane? Plenty of water over the bow....

    Congratulations Sambaopreis on your win in the group, and all the other sailors for putting up a fight . Great to see another tight finish amongst the group, 5 within a few miles of each by the looks of it. Looking forward to a better result on the next leg!

    Yep, really gone tits up out here!
  11. Bunbury Return OR, Finistere Overturned?

    In the grand state of qld a plb is not sufficient, one must have an epirb
  12. Bunbury Return OR, Finistere Overturned?

    Despite PLB's being deemed to not be legal in the slightest, I am still very comfortable that this one item of protection is the only item that will save my life If I Survive the dunking in the water and am subsequently "left behind"
  13. The 70th Brisbane to Gladstone race.

    Guys, the 70th is receiving lots of publicity ( compared to normal) and a generous patron is ponying up some serious dollars to make it bigger. But I still believe that the recent slight reductions in safety requirements haven't made it less safe. Any skipper with half a brain knows that there is no safe haven and plans accordingly. I probably won't be on the course this year, but I look forward to bigger numbers every year and I fully expect the 75th to be BIG. If only they could work out how to finish the course at a point that wasn't so seriously tide affected .........
