    Team NYYC

    That's a nice pic of the old Wilson Cement Works here in Warkworth. Funny you should show it in the NYYC thread because, it actually has a fair bit of relevance to the USA. By that I mean during WW2, Warkworth and it's surrounding areas was a big R&R area for American GI's in the Pacific. One thing they liked to do in their past time was practise their use of explosives - hence why these old Cement Works buildings are in the state they are now! They were also kind enough when they left, to just push into the old quarry swimming hole their unwanted army vehicles. My Dad always tells a story of swimming there as a kid and being able to dive down deep and touch the cab of and old Army truck. It's a great family swimming spot and during Summer you struggle to find space. Ok, now carry on... P.S. I loved what they did in the Shit Towns of New Zealand piece on Warkworth. If we can't laugh at ourselves then who can we laugh at?

    Think it's about time I had a rum. Cheers to you too.

    Wind Limits - Where are they

    I can see that - but isn't that the nature of the beast? Let's agree to disagree and I'll be more civil from on...

    Wind Limits - Where are they

    And as far as not posting. You're right there. I spend most of my time in here just reading and taking in all the interesting information and theories. My knowledge and experience on most things here is limited, so therefore as I don't have anything of use to add, I don't post. I unfortunately find a lot of what you write as very negative, and that's a shame because you seem to know a fair amount about sailing.

    Wind Limits - Where are they

    I stated a fact (you know what they are?) and was replying to Clew. What you're failing to realise, is that all your posts are just your own opinion (and you're entitled to that), but unfortunately you try and pass them off as fact. I take exception to what I don't agree with and then downvote accordingly when there are no facts involved (99% of your posts)

    I stated the 24knt upper wind limit that ETNZ were wanting (from the stuff article) and you downvoted it. Care to explain that?

    You mean this one from the ETNZ FB page?

    ETNZ out of Americas Cup?

    Not sure about other forums sorry mate. But how do we now get our quick fix of AC75 videos and expert technical analysis? Heavens forbid we'll actually have to search for them ourselves?

    ETNZ out of Americas Cup?

    And also the INEOS thread?...

    Larry's AC50 Circus

    How about we all just remove ourselves from posting in this thread? That way it won't show up at the top of our unread threads. Will certainly help remove the temptation for me to check in on it! It really has no place in the AC forum anyway...

    Unfortunately I can't see you mention anything about the Match itself either....But I'm prone to having a "man look" for things a lot of the time anyway. Do I have to wait one year?

    SD....You seem to be confusing yourself. You're getting mixed up with "what you think you asked" as opposed to "what you actually asked" as per your comment from post #4698 "PS - What is the best overall flight time percentage for the AC50? And which race did it happen in?" hmmmmm......
