      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.

  1. Oracle Team USA

    ^ Good to see Oracle still doing what they're good at, making slick self-promotional videos.
  2. Guillaume Verdier interview

    ^ Thanks. We rely on you for textual clarity.
  3. Guillaume Verdier interview

    ^ Actually what people objected to were your insinuations of cheating.
  4. The winning foils

    Excuse my ignorance but can someone give a simple explanation of how the different foil tips are attached and removed?
  5. Auckland AC race course

  6. Team Alinghi

    ^ No mention of AC33 in 2010.
  7. Hauraki Gulf wind statistics

    I remember in 2003 there were many days delay but I can't remember if it was for too much or too little wind and what the limits were.
  8. Team NZ

    Blimey! We'll be hearing soon that ETNZ were living in brown paper bags.
  9. They are whilst LE is there. The question is whether he still has the appetite for the AC. It wouldn't surprise me if he sold the assets to someone else who wants to get into the game. That's how LE himself got started, by buying Paul Cayard's AmericaOne outfit after the 2000 cup.
  10. AC36 - The Venue

    Be careful what you say. @Wethog will be making more accusations of collusion!
  11. Anyone heard from Deano??

    The f'd penalty call was in the qualifiers. It played no part on ARs failure to beat ETNZ and reach the match.
  12. Team NZ

    I know, it's the same silliness that has Spithill joint record holder of the most AC race wins. But hey, we're in celebratory mood.
  13. Team NZ

    As skipper yes, but with different teams.
  14. Team NZ

    ETNZ with three wins are, along with Harold Vanderbilts syndicate of the '30s, the most successful AC team / syndicate of all time. And, whilst we're doing superlatives, it's worth noting that that the 7-1 victory over Oracle is the biggest winning margin in AC history.
