    Right. Let's see what they decide at the next meeting Yes, lets see what they decide at the next meeting. Very good point. Glad you thought of it.

    Go take your case to LR - who opted for a majority vote on such matters.

    Nothing wrong with selling your skills to the highest bidder in a moral economy, surely? Not sure a few around here would agree, like Ta Kootie and his sock puppet, Kia Ora or some such nonsense which he continually denies. hastings and his deranged sock puppets haven't been around here for a year and a half, but that doesn't stop you from still trolling him.... Shows just how far you let him get into that pork pie inside your head.... RO, you might want to deal with you're own problems. That's a big ask, apparently he hasn't been paying attention for 5 years.

    Some conspiracy theorists do an exemplary job of seeking out the downside and negative aspect in everything, but I won't mention names..

    I guess then you are asking why BAR could not use WPNSA. Because it's already in use. Because it's a dinghy facility/sailors' hotel and not of "similar functionality". Above all because it's in Weymouth which is the wrong place, historically, touristically and economically. Weymouth is a great place to run dinghy events. It has no relationship with big-boat sailing and it's not easy to persuade tourists to travel that far from London. Never confuse nav with the facts, let him be content in his delusion.

    Well that's going to kill about 2000 posts from the Kiwi's about OTUSA's spend on the event. Clean has to be bummed.

    That's at least three times now SR - take the hint, look it it up! Hint: Elk - innocent quadrupeds Your ilk - Swallower and similar West Coast nasties Let the hate flow nav - you'll be better soon. On second thought...
  17. cool story - thanks for the reminder.

    always figured it strange they didn't patent the TNZ foil - but I know little about it. Would have been pretty clever though - sue Oracle for patent infringement and win the cup! MSP and his legal advisor TC "Any yacht" are ready and waiting. If they only knew how to file a case.

    just saved you the cost of a frontal lobotomy then. be thankful it put you out of your misery.
  20. Do you think Bertatelli feels any guilt for abandoning that boat like a smelly turd in a Valencia hotel bathroom for someone else to clean up? The least he could have done was tow it out to sea and give it a proper send off. Actually I thought putting it in front of SNG as a tramp for the kiddies to play on was a good use for A5. I guess he just wanted to "make it go away".

    well nav it clearly appears you will be justifying all the possible reasons why the event was unfair and ET lost despite them agreeing to the changes that were implemented, for which you have no argument with anyone except grumpy. Take it up with him or carry on for the rest of your life dragging all your Samsonite baggage along with you. You and TC seem to be the sole survivors with axes to grind, so grind away - it will not change history, Herbie included even when the facts are openly handed to you

    Unfortunately you and TC have latched on to an argument you can't win, just like Herbie. Never said OTUSA was clever about this, or even lucky. While ET boasted early on about their heavy air sailing prowess and used their 2500 lb Dell computer to design a tractor (which everyone seems to agree with), which was probably sub optimal in the likely wind range of the event. To highlight the ridiculousness of your arguments, which I find amusing; 1. Race time limits were always part of the plan to accommodate TV schedules, to which all teams agreed when they signed the protocol. Maybe you missed the memo. Why didn't you bitch at the time instead of after the fact ? 2. ET's partner in crime is the one who initially demanded lower wind limits, to which all teams ultimately agreed to, along with the current factor, or did you miss this too ? Why didn't you bitch at the time ? Because grumpy went along with them ? 3. It was initially thought that ET had a better performing "tractor" in heavier winds. The exact opposite proved true. So who exactly was the beneficiary of reduced wind limits ? And exactly who was it that instigated them ? It's really not that hard to figure this one out nav. Just pull your head out of your ass and look at the facts for a change. 4. If OTUSA optimized their design for the likely wind conditions of the event, it appears you've confused cleverness with common sense. Not too smart are you ? 5. Why is it that grumpy wasn't complaining about all of these issues, he bitched about everything else ? Just more sour grapes from a poor loser. Grow a pair and deal with it.

    Try again bird brain. ET's design was based on the protocol limits, as was OTUSA from the beginning. You want to relegate the discussion to revised wind limits, go back to LR's insistence that the limit be reduced to 20 knots by Bertelli otherwise he refused to race in the LVS. They were subsequently set to a limit that all teams agreed upon, along with the start times. I believe OTUSA proposed to increase the limits and ET declined. Your argument is BS.

    Portrait of nav, TC and MSP in fairyland afraid of the facts. Have a nice day boys

    Good thing they didn't set the upper limit at 40 or 50 knots eh ? ET may have designed a tank instead of just a tractor . You apparently consider published NOAA data on actual winds for that time of year as BS because it doesn't support your argument. Got it. Races scheduled to finish early afternoon ? Seems that was the plan all along and when grumpy pushed for published race times so as not to get "gamed" they were published well in advance of the series, and for all he bitched about this was not one of his ongoing list of complaints, but here it is ~ two years after the fact and you raise this as an argument. Whatever. I think that pretty much summarizes the basis of all your arguments, trying to re-frame facts as BS. You must live in a fairyland. Shouldn't you be tracking the ADM case with your pal MSP ?
