      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.

A Flying Tiger and the Vanisle360

Recommended Posts

Here's a link to the current standings- http://www.vanisle360.com/index.php?p=8_8_Leg-8

 

Mai Tai is holding together in some pretty challenging conditions- the 2/3rds of the race was essentially a beat into winds up to 30 mph. Now that they've had some downwind conditions the boat is cleaning up- I believe they've won the last two legs in Division 2- one of which was down the outside of Vancouver Island in Heavy Offshore conditions.

 

Sounds like competitors boats have experienced broken masts, rudders, and keels- but the Flying Tiger was not amongst them. God I hope I don't jinx them for leg 9....

 

The boat is tougher than perceived!

They ended up placing 2nd over all and leg nine beat the next boat in their div by an hour and half just a 90 mile down wind leg.

 

Eric Jespertsen is on the Tiger and he says it's some of the toughest racing he's ever done and he's done a lot.
