      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. VOR Leg 2 Lisbon to Cape Town

    A Kids In the Hall skit of old. He even got the accent right.
  2. Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    Is that a rugby scrum cap he's wearing? Smart move at those speeds.
  3. Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    Unparalleled talent.
  4. Macif / Gabart / Jules Verne 2017-18

    Can Sodebo get in under 8 days? 23 hrs left and 480NM.

    A sad, sad day. I think my first Hip concert was 1989 at the McInnes Room, Dal Sub. So many great concerts after that including my favourite, Fort Henry Aug '91 double bill with Blue Rodeo. Misty Moon '90. Richardson Stadium '91 IIRC. Molson Park on Canada Day - likely '97 0r '98 - they played coast to coast that day starting in St John's and finishing at Thunderbird Stadium at UBC - caught them in the middle as headliners. Webster Hall NYC in '04 with Sam Roberts - he's amazing live as well. NYE 1999 ACC - 20,000 break out in Oh Canada as the countdown to 2000 began. Amazing stuff. Boots, jean and shirt totally soaked by the end of the first song every time. Pure energy.
  7. Goodbye Russell ... ?

    Would be good to see him helm some smaller projects of his own and surely rack up some more World Championships. Can't think of a better keelboat helmsman. It would be cool to see him out enjoying sailing again and making any fleet better.
  8. What was your favorite race/moment?

    Anyone have the blind gybe on youtube?

    This. If you keep the tight three of Burling, Tuke and Ashby together there are no other three on earth you can put together to match. You had better get the rest of the package better than them because hands down you have to know you're racing against three better sailors. NZ should pay them and keep them together for this defence and at least another. That's why the US should go super young - find the best talent and go two cycles. That kid would be Burling's current age or a bit older in two cycles.
  10. Next USA Team

    Agreed, which is why you 'teach' the best talent under 22 yrs old. Christophe Killian. Top 20 in World in match racing. NCAA champion. Most potential that I can see in the US that young but it will take a couple of cycles.
  11. Next USA Team

    All too old - to helm vs burling need to get the best sailor in US under 22 and go two cycles
  12. Next USA Team

    Christophe Killian. Go young!

  14. Team NZ

    Oops... IF ETNZ win of course.... Still not taking anything for granted.
