      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 don't see it as a major problem as I think it is replaced every time there is a board change anyway.

    Or maybe he thought there was another round to go - otherwise why was he set up to be anywhere near trhat mark?

    Good input - sounds like they may have passed the 3 to 6 days of load testing in the shed. Should they do well against ET - a challenge I admit, we may have to put Jasper on suicide watch. Same old bollocks SWS. Rather than deal with the facts as they are presented to you, you dish out crap. AR will not do well, even if they can make it safely to the line. This is NOT what I want (I prefer a strong workup for ETNZ), but rather is something that could be easily predicted (as I did) from about October last year. Despite the avalanche of evidence available, you however chose to troll by suggesting they were a strong team that could take out the LVC. Even now, you choose to persist in this folly. Tell me, when does your Mea Culpa come to pass? Or does than not factor in your personality? SWS is/has become worse than a troll and seems to be a paid shill as he(they) are on the forum 24/7 with a quick comeback for any criticism of the defenders.

    Can you post a link to the video(s) that conclusively prove that please? Not sure video would prove it anyway. Given that it's the AC there's a possibility that AR was sandbagging. I know PC said they thought the match up had shown that semi foiling was not good enough. I am just wondering what they can change with the first boat to make it faster, assuming they can't get it to full foil (and further assuming not foiling is the issue). All I can think of is layout (getting all the grinders on the windward side, plus making it easier to sail) and drag reduction? Or are they going to try systems for full foiling (foil control?) but on a semi foiling boat? Confusing! I am sure that foiling will not be a problem. I think that the existing hull shape will not help promote early foiling like TNZ/LR. They will have to have new boards and rudders and re-engineer their control mechanisms. And while they are at they might remove the central pod.
  5. Artemis?

    I believe that would be the mooring bouy.
