      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.

    I forget, does ETNZ as Defender get first dibs of bases or does the Protocol give that choice to the first entered Challenger?

    Surely you’re right. The designs won’t work, nothing Core builds ever gets built properly, alterations are inevitable, the whole design job is incomplete, and the fastest boats ever built will simply never happen.

    Was a real pleasure seeing you in Roma, Xlot! You are a real charmer on a big variety of subjects and the ladies who were at the table are looking forward to our next trip, and to the next Roman lunch invitation. So am I.

    The designs could be largely complete by now since the builds at Core are already underway, it’d be no surprise if Fresh has added Design input.

    Has LR chosen which base site yet?

    at https://www.ausleisure.com.au/news/ian-burns-sets-goal-for-ais-to-be-world-leader-in-sport-technology/ America’s Cup-winning engineer Ian Burns has set a goal for the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) to be the world leader in sport data, technology and innovation after returning home to take up a leading role for Australian sport.

    The biggest ACWS crowd ever was in Naples, an event LR won, it was pretty cool. This new series could also attract local interest in nice locales on beautiful weekends but: Crowds are likely not a big factor behind why the AC50 NextGen series is getting funded by infinite-money LE and whoever else. It has to be all about a passion for pressing the limits in sailing performance. Those seeing ‘spite’ as motive are surely small-minded spiteful people themselves. $B’s don’t waste their fun-money on silly shit like malice. They do it mostly just for fun - and good on them no matter the yachting style, J’s or otherwise. These boats will very likely be extremely hot!

    Correct, they won’t overshadow the AC in the sense of massive crowds, broadcasts, attention, history, all of that. But for those of us who love the extreme edge of course-racer boatspeed that Ellison’s AC era ultimately produced, it will be terrific if these boats reach yet another level of performance. The suggestion it is being delayed into ‘19 may be a sign of even bigger ambitions on that front than the original notion.

    Fischer is being given that title in several recent articles and including at ~:35 secs into this. But it does not necessarily explain his exact role(s).
