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.

Would anyone be interested/excited about an R2AK inspired race to Tierra del Fuego? It’s 1090nm from Puerto Montt to Ushuaia. All but two sections can be navigated in inland channels. Smallish boats, no motors. Sail, row, pedal. Last year my R2AK experience was incredible. The only disappointment was that it was over so quickly. I could have gone again right then and there. What would be next level? Me thinks Patagonia! I’ve been wanting to visit Patagonia for years. I’ve got a new boat (one with a cabin). So why not? The beauty of high latitude sailing and the navigational challenges of racing in fjords is a whole different thing than ocean racing and for me has a special appeal. The R2AK organizers do an incredible job with their event. But they benefit from proximity to a large Pacific NW sailing fleet. What would it take to attract 20-30 crazies to Chile? One idea is providing logistical support in the form of barge transport for the fleet from some West Coast US city to the start and return from the finish. Obviously this would be a multi-month commitment for the boats if not the crews. Another idea is providing sat phones and professional weather forecasting to the fleet. Am I tripping? Would anybody do this with me?
