      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.

    The nationality rule only applies to sailors nearly everything else is open ( except lamination of boat).....I don't understand why you have to whine about everything. I know you like cats a lot of people dont...get over it

    I don't think a deep keel and foiling are compatible, the drag of the keel would be too much to allow take off speed when the foils generate more lift than the boat weight. I wounder there might be no keel at all. Instead dagger boards
  3. AC 36 Protocol

    If you don't keep costs down it doesn't come a contest. Even formula 1 has rules to keep costs down. Its one of the good things that Oracle did, was keeping costs down.
  4. AC 36 Protocol

    Just to prove your point https://www.3ds.com/customer-stories/single/oracle-team-usa/ I think ruling out tank testing and wind testing is a good idea. Evens out the playing field... and as a kiwi I can agree its a idea not from ETNZ

    I do think knocking down sailor salaries is a good thing. Over the years salaries have got so large its wrecking the sport.

    As a kiwi I agree NZ needs foreign money but your wrong about Australia theres plenty of people with the cash to do it.
  7. AC36 Auckland NZ

    A foiling monohull will always come down to weight.....that means no keel or no weight on the keel...also 75 feet hull is a lot of weight even without a keel.

    Bollocks ........If you cant manage 380 out of 2 years..you don't have much ticker. In many ways the the 20% passport holders is generous Why would you want to cheer for a team that's not full of your own country men ????

    Look the residence requirements are not that harsh. If your determined to challenge it wouldn't be a problem. If your a syndicate and you find the nationality rule too hard then your unlikely to win.

    maybe hes doing his bucket list
  11. ac36 mono hull knock-on effect

    Hmm these press releases seem to indicate to me that ac50 cats are not very likely. Time will tell what ETNZ decide opps sorry what prada decides.
  12. Oracle Team USA

    Rattling cages a bit is a good thing....so all respect
  13. Oracle Team USA

    look in this forum we have to have tolerance to other peoples view, however some people take it too far. Jays is not one of these, ive had an argument or too with the guy and at least he listens

    Your making the assumption that Indio is human, rather than a septic liver attached to a keyboard. Since I've blocked him this place almost seems nice.

    in my opinion the cup looks spastic, what we need is to get some disgruntled maori activists to bash the cup in again, rebuild the cup and do engraving again, and get rid of that stupid bottom piece. It looks like it was designed by a deranged nazi opps swiss shrug same thing in my mind
