      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. So that's true...your sheep have a brain ,not you . Go back to your screen watching your mates swimming .
  2. I already have one...Concerning my sense of humor ,i like to see Burling's mates swimming around the capsized boat . Better swimmers than trimmers...Just laugh , i admire kiwis and their sailors .
  3. Not cars ? have you driven a Ferrari ,Maserati or Lamborghini ? Fine toys...
  4. Last words are pure stupidity ,coming from an idiot . Poor insane kiwi.
  5. Am i the only one to think that FC is a master of offshore racing ,solo or with a team(Rhum ,Volvo..) ,a fantastic leader ,but perhaps not the best match racer and helmsman? Look at Ian Percy : he drives the team ,but he decided to choose an helmsman ...He should think about for the future . Billy Besson is an olympic helmsman..
  6. Je crois que tu es français ,aussi je t'épargne mon piètre anglais . Peux tu m'expliquer ce que tu dis sur l'hydro et les valves? Merci!
  7. Totally agree...add to this a bunch of stupid trolls , chauvinists and ignorant ,and you have the complete story . These guys are armchair "sailors" ! Any sailor hanging out here is arm chairing. I have to admit that ,in a sense ,you are right....shame on me!
  8. Totally agree...add to this a bunch of stupid trolls , chauvinists and ignorant ,and you have the complete story . These guys are armchair "sailors" !
  9. And good luck to the Arab team, asshole. I hope you die of cancer soon. I have a cancer. Don't wish it to anybody . it's stupid . I hope you'll never catch it ,it's too much pain . Think twice before talking .
  10. Dunno about this very boat but IME most racing boats can go upwind under jib alone as long as you don't pinch and keep the speed up. Bien dit!
  11. OK ,i'm sitting in my armchair . But two remarks : first ,the helmsman did a great mistake ,putting the tiller hard down : they are heaving ,no speed and waves on the side . He had to maintain some speed at all costs . Second : with just a small jib ,two guys can control it directly ,and maintain some speed and maneuvrability . That's said ,i was not in the boat...I'm glad they're fine .
  12. C'mon ,folks! It's a hoax , it's the first of April! But i admit it could be a damn good idea...
  13. Yes the designer is Chevalier . It's a design made to illustrate the paper ,not to submit for build ..
  14. 3 desings competing: VPLP, Finot-Conq + Sam Manuard, and Mer Forte (never heard). Mer forte is an engineering and racing projects company managed by Michel Desjoyaux
