      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.

300 Days To Go To The 2015 Barcelona World Race

Recommended Posts

We welcome our friends from the Barcelona World Race back and thank them for their support and advertising with Sailing Anarchy! The BWR is a completely unique race, providing most of the adventure and challenge of the Vendee Globe, but adding the spice and flavor of a start in the fabulous city of Barcelona and the excitement and adrenaline you get when you put the higher-performance possible from a double handed crew. The additional body also means the interpersonal relationship is a big part of the race, and with one more person to write/shoot/edit there's more content as well. We dig it, and here's their announcement:

 

Barcelona World Race: 300 days to the start

The third edition of the Barcelona World Race starts New Year's Eve, December 31, 2014 and will reveal ten duos, or more, on the start line ready to take on the biggest and most arduous challenge in double-handed ocean racing.

Four high caliber teams have already announced their participation, including six co-skippers who are returning to the race again. The teams are the Mare Racing Team with German and French skippers Jorg Riechers and Sebastien Audigane, GAES Centros Auditivos with Spaniards Anna Corbella and Gerard Marin, Hugo Boss with Alex Thomson from Great Britain and Pepe Ribes from Spain and the recently announced Neutrogena Sailing Team with Spaniard Guillermo Altadill and Chilean Jose Munoz, to be joined by another six in the upcoming weeks and months.

A new course will be followed, taking the fleet south of New Zealand this time. Stops will be taxed much more heavily. The Barcelona World Race, a thrilling adventure to take competitive human sporting partnerships to the limit of endurance, has long since set its position as a 'must do' on the IMOCA Ocean Masters World Championship.

An innovative and exciting media programme using all up to the minute platforms will bring the Barcelona World Race to individual race fans

and into households around the world, developing and reporting the sporting and human stories hour by hour and day by day. The commercial returns for sponsors and partners on previous editions of the race represent excellent value. And alongside the sporting challenge, the Barcelona World Race will open avenues for important scientific and marine research.

South of NZ? Isn't that the normal route? Perhaps you mean NORTH of NZ, which would make sense to avoid bergs.

Last time route was through Cook Strait.
