      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 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Donno... after this nice turn in the weather after a much prolonged winter, we may not see him for a while.
  2. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Hmm, belinda seems to have left the building.
  3. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    I didn't know they were into those appliances...
  4. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Not sure why Retired and Slow are asking me; all I did was re-post (with due acknowledgment) what belin zeneize had already posted, albeit in a different format ...

    Centreboard maybe? Still in one piece, but not getting much use, unfortunately. I don't recall having any rudder issues.
  6. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Thanks for the chart belin zeneize.

    Wasn't TToP within sight at this time? No other sails visible in that 360 sweep, though resolution might be a factor.
  8. VOR Leg 7 Auckland to Itajai

    Coming live now.

    Staying up for this as well. Gaining speed now...just noticed the addition of the black ribbon on Team MAPFRE's website and FB logo.
  10. VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    I visit LDYC, Blackstrap and Redberry on occasion but not a member (yet)... old 5 oh in my back yard, hope to get it wet this year!
  11. VOR Leg 8 Itajaí to Newport

    I took the OP seriously. And you are right -- I'm old!

    Nearby for me as well (S'toon). 'Stunned' and 'disbelief' are perhaps the best words so far, other emotions surely to follow. I was involved with feeding some athletes from nearby during their Winter Games this past week. Possibly saw one or two of them just the other day.
  13. Cheap Dinghy storage options?

    Maybe ask around at the Renton Rowing Center at the end of the Boeing factory? Nishiwaki Ln off N Ranier -- seems to be a lot of miscellaneous small craft there.

    Un palo se cambia y punto. Una persona no. Ánimo. Based on my limited Spanish, I read "Take care -- A mast can be replaced, a human life can't. Hold fast."

    I expect the whales' AIS is better than anyone else's.
