  1. Guess I need to put Needaclue on ignore then. They're the worst when it comes to quoting dg_sailingfan. Tornadocat is getting close to the ignore list also.
  2. Can't the admins add a rule to the ignore filter that filters out quoted content from members already on the ignore list? If that can't be done, then what's the point of the ignore function?

    Totally agree. Seeing the same users bitch and moan at each other is so fucking boring and turns me off coming to this forum. Grow the fuck up. Tornado Cat and Foruourselves - you guys in particular are such a drain. 20% of what you discuss is interesting, the rest is bollocks and neither of you are going to conceded your position, so go get a room or something and argue amongst yourselves and stop clogging to forum.

    Have just put dg_sailingfan on ignore. Thank God for that. What a bore they were.

    Teams? "For all the times I've been in the cup, I've never seen so many challenger teams trying to enter," Team New Zealand's chief operating officer Kevin Shoebridge told Auckland councillors at a meeting on Thursday. Shoebridge said two confirmed teams were already meeting architects and builders about base construction in Auckland.

    I sort of agree with Stingray here. Reading through all this shit is so tiresome.

    Why the sudden interest when when there is a $1m fine for late entries? The article believes late interest stems from the following: There is more confidence in the foiling monohull design concept after the performance of a Surrogate yacht by the US Challenger American Magic. The America's Cup champions, Emirates Team New Zealand have made entry easier by making a basic design package available to all teams, reducing the design risk for new teams. Also worth noting: The 100% nationality rule does not seem to be having the deterrent that was initially expected. The later announced teams seem relaxed with running multi-national teams and complying with the residency requirements of the Protocol.

    Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    My favourite line of the translated page is "Luna Rossa, having collaborated technically with kiwifruit in the last America's Cup, would benefit from it."

    When was Blair's hand held device submitted to the measurement committee?I wonder what the submission request looked like from ETNZ. Do the other teams get to see this? Wonder how they would have interpreted it?

    Awesome insights there, and the virtual reality feature is wicked.

    Quite possibly the best hype video I've ever seen. The competitors must have known they were in the shit seeing that boat in action. Wonder what the "oh, we're so fucked" moment was?

    He said that to me. I had so many convos on Thursday night with many of the black magic magicians and where they spoke about what they did to get here; with 'here' being the final destination, GA spoke about 'here' being the start line. Where will GA take his astronauts next? Who knows. While even GA may not know the answer, he's earned the right to throw the ball out as far as he likes.

    Bro, that glass box has sneaky little alarms on it. I set them off at about midnight when I was taken upstairs for a cheeky photo beside the cup. It was at that point everyone started singing "Sailing Away" and I made a beeline for the exit to join in. Great night
