      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. Now that Oracle is Kaput. What is Spithills next gig? Is it ... 1. Skipper and helm of Team Australia? 2. Skipper and helm of Team Alinghi with Butterballs calling tactics? 3. Helm of BAR with Ainslie calling tactics? 4. Commentator? 5. The Bachelor 2020? 6. Other? Thoughts please!
  2. That would be dumb. I thought proper sail boats were boats that used a sail and the wind as opposed to a motor and diesel? Hence the sport and hobby - Sailing. Therefore, how many hulls your sail boat has should be irrelevant.
  3. Let's hope we can defend the cup both on and off the water.
  4. OR was always faster in '13. It took 9 races for them to learn how to sail. '17 OR is slower and have had to destabilize their boat to get within the TNZ ball park.
  5. 8 reasons to bench JS for Race 9 tomorrow. 1. Can't start. 2. Can't foil. 3. Can't gybe. 4. Can't tack. 5. Can't sail. 6. Can't win. 7. Can't talk. 8. Not an American.
  6. No, back to the tried and true. Coutts on Helm and Butterworth calling tactics. Yes BB is over there on vacation and guest commentating for NZ radio with PJ Montgomery. Seems a waste of talent. Plus, if they kept it under wraps it would also have a great shock factor in the starting box. Burling and the boys would no doubt freak out and muff the start for sure, and OR needs a good start.
  7. My take on it is if they can make the boat faster or as fast as TNZ then why hadn't they done that already? The boat has been in development for years. Can't see what you can do in 5 days that will make any difference to be honest. And as for Frisco, I think OR was the faster boat then, it just wasn't being sailed properly. I'm not sure that is the case this time!
  8. Ah yes fond memories.
  9. Yes the teams read all the posts each night after racing. Btw Spithill is in here posting incognito.
  10. When they're 7-zip down Spithill will pull himself and put Barker on the helm. It would be a great twist.
  11. If it's 6 races to zip this time next week I'd say it's on the cards.
  12. Coutts.
  13. Small Island + Drugs + Haulin' Ass is a Threesome that meshes.
