Abbreviated rules 07/28/2017Underdawg 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.

The 750 nm race remains essentially unchanged. There is an earlier start date of June 8 as the Van Isle 360 is on again. That will make for some colder water and hopefully better wind. The second change is a new twist, an offer to buy the boat from the finisher for 10,000 bucks, in Ketchikan, if they successfully complete the race. Hear it from Jake at about the 28 minute and change mark in the video on this page. https://www.facebook.com/racetoalaska/ Also worth a listen to Team Nordica's funny highlight earlier in the video. It will be interesting to see how this will attract teams to finish and what trash they dig up and fix to race. Who will step up to challenge the fastest time ? Will there be an ironman matchup of Roger Mann and Colin Angus ? Will Colin have a brand new purpose built design? Will Thomas Nielsen try for the smallest boat in a Sunfish? Will the M32 team endure even colder temperatures and unpredictable winds to set a new record ? Will there be a youngest sailor, a teen, to do the R2AK? A father/daughter team? Will the new boat buyout for 10k attract Team Can't Anchor Us to do a third race in the 2 time cheapest boat ? I regret missing the bash last night with a flu still giving me a brain ache. Hell yeh, I signed up this morning, the earlier start's challenge appeals to me. Solo this time, same boat, Y6m, set up for singlehand, with a code 0 this time, better oars, maybe with a tiller pilot like Colin Angus used. http://www.xssailing.com/article/rowcruiser-electronic-tiller-pilot-r2ak/ The Seascape 18 unofficial record for fastest under 20 foot, solo, monohull at 18 days, 4 hours and 26 minutes is a worthy goal for me this time. https://r2ak.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/2016-R2AK-Results.pdf Hope to see you there in 2017.
