      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.

RORC 600 Hetairos ?

Recommended Posts

I am down in Antigua just now and anchored in Falmouth where I can watch the entries for the RORC 600 getting ready for the race.

 

Amongst them is the giant ketch Hetairos. You know the one that blew by the old Rambler on the long reaching leg in 2012..

 

I had a wee keek at the entry list and she is not on it.

 

Anybody know why? I mean I think the keel they clonked at St Barts on the Bucket is fixed by now.

 

Anybody up for a quick charter and a late entry on the big mean green reaching machine.

I was down there 2 weeks ago, and it seemed that the 600 was doubtful at best. It just takes so much to prep these huge machines for racing, especially offshore, that it just bites hard into schedules.

 

However I'd be delighted to see that change.

Well Hetairos had her code zero bent on and flying fine yesterday. Lots of heavy kit unloaded onto the quay.

 

But she is not among the 65 entries. Biggest field ever I think. Everything from a Pogo 12.50 to Athos the 203 ft schooner. Pre start could get a little hectic.

 

Rambler is listed as the RP 90 but ??

Which Rambler do think it is then? Certainly not the JuanK 100

Well the entry describes Rambler as a Reichel Pugh 90,

 

Where the hell have you been the last year and a half?
