      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. With what boat does a COR challenge in the first place? Do they always challenge with a 90x90 ft yacht just in case they can't agree on a protocol with the defender so they have a deed compliant Maxi yacht? Has anyone ever seen the original challenges after 1987 except for the DoG Challenge from 2007 that I know?
  2. Team NYYC

  3. Team Alinghi

    Does SNG still have an annual regatta on the sea or arm of the sea?
  4. AC36 Protocol - Ask Dalts

    What is his take on the story that the commodore of the Royal Yacht Squadron was seen running around Bermuda with an envelope in hand?
  5. AC 36 Protocol

    During the build up of AC33 Alinghi at some point discarded the AC90 class and came up with a smaller version of boats that should be sailed should Oracle loose the lawsuit. Anyone remember how long these boats were supposed to be?
  6. As does the Melges 40.
  7. You always mix up the AC numbers. DZ was AC 33 we just had AC 35
  8. AC45s For Sale

    Dude you seriously need to work on your irony detection skills.
  9. Team NZ

    If I were Grant Dalton I would simply say: kids go and have fun and do what I did in my youth. It's a great experience.
  10. The Oracle Speaks

    That was really brillant.
  11. Team Alinghi

    First time I hear this. Any more information on who was supposed to be ETNZ´s COR in 2013? I thought it would have been Luna Rosse?
  12. Team NZ

    Austrian commentator Hans Peter Steinacher on ServusTV said he was adjusting the wing to put more twist in it because the wind got higher. Since Steinacher is also looking after the Austrian RBYAC Team he might have some clue what he is talking about.
  13. Live Racing Thread

    Just saw a glimpse of Ernesto Bertarellis VAVA II on the TV coverage. Wouldn´t have thought that EB would visit an AC organised by Russel and Larry. Talks with ETNZ?
  14. Live Racing Thread

    LOL did that commentator on BT sport just say that the Brits "were unable to finish their race against NZ"?
  15. Live Racing Thread
