      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.

KEN READ:

we worked to try to reduce to one gybe on the first run. It was such a short run. It was really the start, it was the whole race. I'm sick of you guys commentating about champagne moments on other boats, so i wanted to have one of our own

Winning anything is fun, whether it's an in-port race or a game of checkers. All these guys on this boat did an amazing job, we just finished an around the world race, a Volvo race. God bless the green shirt, we love everyone in Ireland so it's the least we can do.

...and the livestream video of the race has apparently vanished from both the volvo site and livestream. Replace instead by the snoozefest coverage of the arrival into Galway. Anyone know where the livestream replay is?

I don't see any other tread on the in-port race and I don't see anybody's comments on the incident between G4 and Camper at the second bottom gate....as I recon Abudabi was penalized by coming on port in front of Sanya at the first down leg...now,the same thing happened between G4 and Camper...why there was no protest? I'm pretty rusty with my rules -of-way,but if that was a foul than...??!!...did anybody else noticed that?

Good illustration of the extra dimension of a square starting line, I thought. Looked like AB on port failed to yield to Sanya on strb. And G4 could not tack in front of Campy without fouling so had to cross clear ahead and then tack outside, good tactical sailing.
