      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. Except by a Mach 2 or Exocet or most any other modern foiler or board... When they are no longer faster than a production sailboat you can pick up for 15 grand and no longer creating world-first ideas, the appeal of the Class really suffers. Clean, do you think the mentioned foilers would also beat Groupamas performance around the course? The speeds and angles were looking really good.
  2. Any pic of the Team Norgador foil set-up? Does the wand move the whole foil or just a flap?
  3. Groupama doing 19kn upwind and 31kn downwind. Faster than the AC45F?
  4. With only 3 month to, I wonder what´s the progress with the different teams? Any updates? What about the boat developments? All very secret this time...
  5. can you put the 600 on a buoy mooring?
