      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.

Meanwhile in the middle of the ocean...

Recommended Posts

... there is guy who is sailing from Canaries to Martinica, singlehanded on a modified Star. Yes a Star.
He changes the mast, fitted furling headsails, autopilot, batteries and everything needed.
 

Dario Noseda is fulfilling his dream, crossing the Atlantic alone on his beloved Star.

If you are there, please check-in at his arrival!!!!!

To follow the adventure of this half-crazy full-tough man, see https://www.facebook.com/starinoceano/

Unfortunately, so far it is only in Italian :-)

Not sure what mistake Nicholson did, perhaps jibing just after having the bow in the water and not a full speed on the top of a wave ? I would have love to compare with Cammas last Volvo in same or worse conditions.

Anyway, worth to see for all sailors here.

Go to the VOR Leg 3 thread, you will find all the good stuff and a lot more there.
OTOH, maybe don't, as AC folk and our manners may not fit in there.

More spectacle:
