      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. Foiling Monohull - what would it look like?

    God help us if they have to sail around with those two opposing asymmetric foils in the water for long periods . That wouldn't be a good look

    Hang on a second, were was the customary "You Don't know what you're talking about " response ? ( in red of course )

    I would think you've pretty much nailed it there .
  4. Foiling Monohull - what would it look like?

    Lets see if i get this right . 1974 defence ,Turner on Mariner [ inferior boat ,inferior sails ] Vs Hood on Courageous [superior boat ,superior sails] - Courageous Wins. Courageous white washes Southern Cross in the Match [ inferior boat ,inferior sails] - Fastest boat Wins . Turner buys Courageous ,Hood largely copies and try's to improve with Independence . 1977 Defence ,Courageous [ similar boat , superior sails ] Vs Independence [similar boat , inferior sails , plus poor sail selection ] - Courageous Wins . Courageous white washes Australia in the Match [ inferior boat , inferior sails ] - Fastest boat Wins . By the way Courageous is my all time favourite 12 metre yacht . Still looks fantastic even with guard rails on .

    Every DOG match , because lets face it we wouldn't be were we are without them !

    Sorry you feel that way . The AC has always been about building a faster boat than your competitor . Im still hoping that the new boats are an advancement on the previous in terms of speed and raceability . Peddling hampsters or pedastool hamsters it's a boat race that I'm still going to watch .
  7. Foiling Monohull - what would it look like?

    GG never expressed anything regarding autonomous sailing . It was more about the perception that the AC 50s were just drag racers and yet the JC 75s look to be even more heavily inclined to that style of racing . But at least it resembles a monohull . Isn't that what its all about ?
  8. trickle down

    Did any pictures eventually turn up of GTF's experiment with Z foils from the last cycle ? Just interested to know if there was anything evolutionary or revolutionary they were trying at the time ?
  9. Trimaran Foiling Systems

    Saw the boats in person a few weeks ago at Sail Sydney and while extremely impressed with overall build quality and finish I can't help but feel the foil wheel base seems a little on the small side. Not a criticism just my observation. I;m sure much smarter minds than mine are involved .
  10. Foiling Monohull - what would it look like?

    I think you missed the point of his post .
  11. Foiling Monohull - what would it look like?

    Isn't this the second time you,ve done that?
  12. Where are they now? - Retired America's Cup Boat

    Nothing against Dean personally. Just didn't like the stance he used to have at the helm. Glad he finally ironed it out .
  13. Where are they now? - Retired America's Cup Boat

    Probably because it looks like Dean Barkers on the helm.
  14. Foiling Monohull - what would it look like?
