      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.

    Correct. Also the labour politician who is supportive of the cup is Trevor Mallard who is likely to be speaker, so wont have any pet projects to push.
  2. who won?

    The ref won.
  3. AC 36 Protocol

    Electric motors if they are allowed a big enough battery.
  4. Goodbye Russell ... ?

    Wethog. You should know the rules by now. Only foreign yatch clubs can challenge and the defender is a single club. The defending club may choose one of multiple teams to defend on their behalf but other yatch clubs have nothing to do with it.

    Desk model of Aotearoa now available: http://www.abordage.com/fine-ship-models/americas-cup-boats/emirates-team-new-zealand-catamaran-ac-50-2017-desk-model.html?utm_source=ETNZ&utm_medium=post&utm_campaign=ETNZAC50 The New York Yatch Club had a scale model of each winning boat. Do they still do that?

    I was up there over the weekend checking out houses on the peninsula. I saw all the Open BIC's out sailing at Manly. May have been there for that. Russell has been open with his praise for Burling all along so who knows what he is trying to cook up. Maybe he was aksing Burling for a job

    The general idea is hardly new. I recall the use of route planning software was widespread for the online Volvo sailing game. Some I gather had even set up scripts to control the game while they were asleep using input from an online route planning site. It isn't much of a stretch from that kind of thing to "set your foil like this"
  9. Anyone heard from Deano??

  11. I would say that Dalts will want to run the defence. Win or lose he might move on to something else after that.
  12. The foil of the future

    Are you a cash buyer: http://www.lme.com/metals/non-ferrous/lead/
  13. What was your favorite race/moment?

    So why do you take what Dalton said seriously.
  14. Get real, the America's cup is long dead

    The own bottom clause isn't in the deed any more. If the propelled by sails only clause was removed then the cup really would be dead as far a sailing goes. Might be some supporters for a fizz boat race but not me.

    My office is close to the viaduct harbour so I will be there.
