      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.

    Arise Sir Dalts.... Thank you boys for burying San Francisco.... The deck was so stacked against us that none of us thought this day was possible but good old kiwi ingenuity came to the fore..... Good to see that the talent can still out gun the wallets. Etnz swam against the rise of arrogance that flowed from the other teams.. None of whom was prepared to think outside the box and advance sailing. Interesting to hear that Dalts wants to bring it all together and use isaf to make sure that the Americas cup is a sport again... It is a privilege to lift the cup not a right... Well said old boy.
  2. Serben or Deano are available... For a fee

    Sailing the new v6 df 65.... It's good, but no quicker than the v5... We now have a regular group of 7 or 8 racing and we are just about to start evening racing mid week... Not bad from nobody 3nmomths ago That's the beauty of the little dragon force. Ownership is easy.
  14. Agree with ER doctor... It pays well and always an asset in any sailing situation Sure its hard to train but worth it in the end.... Also helps you marry well

    So the DF 65 world has now seen all the teasers about the version 6.... No more competitive than previous but finally improved the quality and the family semblance with the 95 is complete. Highlights include... An A+ rig. A new rudder servo and mylar sails straight out of the box.... Who is going to update their v 1 to 5?
