      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.

Equator Sprint Race featured in the Neptune Regatta

Recommended Posts

After 2 years of planning and getting over buckets of hurdles, I can at last write:

 

Introducing the Neptune Regatta which Incorporates ZERO - THE RACE, the world's only equator sprint race. NoR attached

 

Please take a moment to view the website www.neptune-regatta.com for further information. It is still being updated but I'm childishly impatient now it's this far done so please forgive any typo's etc.

Well in 30 days we'll find out if it was genius to organize this or whether there was a good reason why it's never been done before!!

The 2012 NOR for the Neptune Regatta (race to the equator) is now out and we're happy to report that we have 20 boats already registered out of a maximum of 40 participant vessels. So 50% 6 months before race start at least pays for the beer :) please take a moment to check out the Regatta site Neptune Regatta and also have a look at the chat on the Facebook page which has over 6,500 followers (not quite SA but we're trying:) Neptune Facebook Page. Thanks and we hope to bring a few more exciting races to the South East asian circuit in the future too. Oh and check out the posh brochure for the regatta:POSH Brochure

:D Capsizes...no, not expecting any... but it's as close to a 'pickle fork' as we could get for a prize!

That's because any boat not carrying lead will be so far infront it will look upside down to the monomarans once its on the lower part of the world......
