      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. F18 ownership costs

    That's a good advice, will go for that.
  2. F18 ownership costs

    Today another race series in 10-15 knots. It was clear that the long boards just sail 5 degrees higher at the same speed!
  3. F18 ownership costs

    Ok thanx for all the info, still not sure if new longer/thinner boards are worth the investment. We were sailing lower in winds below 12 knots compare to most other boats. Hard to tell if it is the boat/sails or the boards. Also interested if those thinner (shorter chordlength) boards are faster downwind
  4. F18 ownership costs

    We have a Cirrus from 2003. Does it make sense to replace the daggerboards by longer/newer ones?
  5. Laser caron top section

    It is F* unbelievable that there is still an alu mast and boom on that boat. Let alone that piece of shit sail on it. And now one wonders why the sport sailing is under pressure.
  6. Is there a boat for sale?
  7. what is it?

    If I could afford don't think would go for a Farr design nowadays. They did not show much interesting boats last years. The only thing they won was the Volvo Ocean Race
  8. Vendee Globe 2016?

    At least a competitor who does not have to worry about funding.
  9. Rolex Wild Oats XI

    What is the exact plan?
  10. ACWS Portsmouth 23rd 26th July

    Just bought the fucking app to find out 10 minutes later the racing is cancelled. WTF.... On Android there isn't even a replay of the sailed races available. Anyone any suggestions to get the money back.
  11. what is it?

    Saw the thing in Dusseldorf on some sort of do it yourself booth. Stil cannot figure out the purpose of it.
  12. Worlds largest ship

    Shell do not gives a shit, the only thing they are interested in is money
  13. Worlds largest ship

    just google on pieter schelte name and you will find the FT page
  14. Worlds largest ship

    After much pressure Allseas will change the name of the ship. This will bring no luck! But Always better than to honour a nazi!
  15. Worlds largest ship

    That is a bold move from Edward Heerema (founder of Allseas) to name his latest ship after his father Pieter Schelte Heerema. Pieter Schelte Heerema was very wrong in the 2nd world war and collaborated with the nazi's and joint the waffen SS. After the war he was arrested but manaeged to fled to South America. Pieter Schelte Heerema was the founder of Heerema Offshore. Not much respect to all the victims of the war I would say.
