      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.

  3. New imoca boats

    It started happening when the covered cockpits came about, Macif and Banque pop were well forward last time around. Comes from the work VPLP/Verdier did with Comanche, they kept moving the mast back in the models and figured it works.
  4. New imoca boats

    Boom is now fitted.
  5. Vendee Globe 2016?

    SMA has bought MACIF for Figaro skipper Paul Meilhat for an IMOCA campaign ending in the 2018 RdR, but focussing on the 2016 Vendee.
  6. Route du Rhum 2014

    Yup saw that. Hope he didn't break anything. Maybe slowed down to take another riff, they expect very rough conditions around Cap Finisterre. Yeah, let's hope so, he was just getting up to speed!
  7. Route du Rhum 2014

    Guichard has slowed down to 13 knots from 35 in one sched...
  8. New Cubed - First Supermaxi Since Speedboat

    VPLP tweeting "Tataaaa!!!! And there she floats!!"
  9. New imoca boats

    Safran have released a drawing of their new IMOCA, which will be being built from the same plug as Banque Pop
  10. New imoca boats

    They now own the Juan K black and white boat, they're letting ex-Virbac Paprec and I think they've sold the Farr, so only the 1, don't quote me on that though
  11. New imoca boats

    Both the Farr and Ex-VP3 are out of the shed with the Hugo Boss guys. Pictures soon to follow apparently.
  12. Team UK

    Vsail said Ben would announce a full project in the last week of April, not sure where the details came from.
  13. New imoca boats

    From Jérémie Beyou's Facebook page
  14. New imoca boats

    I'd say Macif/Maitre Coq will be the closest you'll get in terms of actual bow volume
  15. New imoca boats

    Figaro young-gun Morgan Lagraviere will skipper Safran's new boat for the next Vendee, taking over from Guillemot after the Route du Rhum
