      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. Napa Fire

    Are these fires the new way of terrorists causing mayhem, death and destruction. Surely 17 fires in a short period of time points to a coordinated effort by some people and not just a few idiots.
  2. LB, I think the boat may be staying Sydney until after the Hobart, or thats what my intel is.
  3. AC 36 Protocol

    I have worked with Swiss Timing at another event and they weren't really up to snuff. I hope they have evolved a bit since then.
  4. AC 36 Protocol

    If Stan Honey owns the development and technology, this edition of the AC will have to start from scratch with who ever is doing the broadcast. More dollars to be spent by RNZYS, it could all add up to a large sum.
  5. 6 meter Worlds

    I cant see anywhere in the RRS that the mark has to be set at any particular time, so long it is in front of the first boat. Not good practice but within the rules.
  6. AC 36 Protocol

    Are you saying it will be an open cheque book for ETNZ or will there be some limits.
  7. AC 36 Protocol

    I do think it will be held in Auckland but at what cost to the tax-payers and rate-payers is the question I am asking
  8. AC 36 Protocol

    Keep drinking the Kool-ade Clarkey
  9. Appeal decision help

    Not sure that this can go any further. There has been an appeal and decision. Its not a law court, its a yacht race for Christ sake. Take it on the chin and move on.
  10. AC 36 Protocol

    Clarky, it will be great for Auckland but there was not much trickledown south of the Bombay Hills last time. So how much do you think the public purse will have to come up with, and what strings will be attached to the money, I am sure it will not be just a gift to the cause.
  11. AC 36 Protocol

    How much cash do you think the NZ taxpayers will have to come up with and how much do you the Auckland rate payers will have to come up with. And don't quote that BS that it will be good for the whole country, I am sure the farmers in Southland wont get any bonanza from the AC, 98% of any windfall (if any) from the event will be confined to Auckland.
  12. Teams?

    I am sure Winston will make it happen in Northland somewhere. It could be the key to his puzzle.
  13. Bye bye Artemis Racing

    Careful, the mainlanders might cut the Cook Strait cable and then you would be in the dark.
  14. Oracle Team USA

    Go back to your golf, this is a sailors forum.
  15. Oracle Team USA

    No need for name calling it only lowers the tone of the discussion. The point that you dont seem to grasp is deliberately breaking the rules. Most sports people that have a minor penalty against them is for inadvertent breaking of the rules. Those who do it deliberately usually have the book thrown at them (Red cards and a long holiday - SBW). Think of other sports than rugby and sailing. I hope you are not involved in any junior sport with an attitude that deliberate cheating is OK so long as you don't get caught.
