      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.

  2. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    It's sail boat racing and it's on TV - well streaming. We're not overloaded with this type of content so I'll take as much as I can get. I also appreciate that some schmuck has dug pretty deep into his pockets to put this on. Are the boats perfect? Shit no, but I don't give a fuck. The future for these boats and series is definitely on very shaky ground so I'll watch them while I can.

    Another clean sweep to Euroflex. Tech2 led around a couple of marks to make it a bit more interesting. Not sure what happened to ID, as they didn't race. Might have damaged their foils pre-race, not sure though.

    KR and myself obviously didn't read your post Terry and we remained ignorant.
  5. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    Today's stream is up.
  6. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    Forecast from Willyweather is for winds around 17 knots - quite close to the wind limit. Be a bummer if it was canned again today.
  7. Luna Rossa Challenge. AC 36

    Hmmm, from coverage I saw of the challenger series, KR didn't have a clue how ETNZ were flying the boat, he assumed Burling was with the buttons on the wheel. It wasn't until at least the LV finals or even later that there was mention of Tuke flying the boat - KR seemed more interested in Ashby's xbox. It wasn't till after the event that it emerged that the bloke in front of Tuke also flew the boat while Tuke crossed the tramp. I'm not privy to inside info, but we were well into the event before I heard anything about the handsfree advantage, which kinda makes sense as people didn't really speculate that much about ETNZ until it became obvious they had a kick arse system and boat.

    The hands free advantage was only realised by opposing teams during the racing when ETNZ was kicking butt. No one seemed to have figured that out before hand.

    Seems racing has been canned for the day.
  10. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    Anyone have any idea when they're going to race? Don't like chewing my allowance listening to the chumps fill.
  11. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    Yeah closest so far. Great to see ID lead around the first mark.
  12. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    "Lets see if we can hear what they're thinking" She's ridiculous.....
  13. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    A bit weird that they can sail in amongst the spectator fleet. Not sure the insurers would be that pleased. Chic commentator is getting annoying with her faux enthusiasim.
  14. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    Business as usual for Euroflex. Some of the boats come to a complete stop in the manoeuvers. Not sure if these boats will ever foil completely around the course - certainly not in light winds.
  15. SuperFoiler Grand Prix 2018

    Less wind than yesterday - 12-14 knots predicted.
