      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. For the VOR start in Auckland when Camper was in the race, the skipper decided we needed some kite practice so we spent a couple of hours hoisting, gybing and dropping out near Rangitoto. After we were all knackered, we positioned ourselves off Takapuna and watched/tried to keep up with the boats as they two sail reached towards a Gulf Harbour... we couldn't A great day on the water
  2. Terrible news, hoping the missing if found soon.
  3. A post on crew.org.nz might find a boat for both Rum Racing and VOR watching
  4. In shorts and t-shirt too Only if it's raining does one put a jacket on Isn't that the same everywhere else?
  5. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    Trade Me auctions tend to have a flurry of activity at the end of the auction, interested parties will set their maximum bids and wait and see. I am not sure if it still happens but the auctions used to be extended for 30(?) minutes if there are multiple bidders. March 1st should see a big jump in price
  6. Carrabean 600

    CQS has already retired ... And there is another thread
  7. The 70th Brisbane to Gladstone race.

    @LB 15Did I miss your answer to which year Scavenger did the race?
  8. Marley Point 2018 50th Anniversary

    And other times when they call the race off due to too much wind... The only time I have attempted it Is this actually the 50th race or have they included the years blown away?
  9. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    Wasn't Lord Dubin a naviguessor for hire? Andalay might be Lord Dubin's new sock
  10. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    Would the trailer fit?
  11. VOR Leg 6 Hong Kong to Auckland

    No problems on the PC but the iPad keeps reloading then shits itself with all the pics, videos etc.. Bloody annoying but my problem only it seems
  12. Affordable racing tris vs. cats (<35ft)

    Hurts is currently at $3,010, auction ends 1st March How much room is there in a 40' container? If the trailer fits the shipping costs might be reasonable.
  13. what is it?

    One sail? Looks like there is a prod and blocks for a second sail to me
  14. Vestas 11th Hour recovery

    Will YDL be in charge of the repair or will Persico send some specialists?
