      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. 12 meter charter Newport - worth it?

    Okay, I will give you the last one to compete. The last one built for America's Cup was France II, built in 1977. Never actually raced. They went with France instead http://www.12mrclass.com/yachts/detail/273-itemId.511707114.html Heritage never competed for the America's Cup. She competed in the Defender Trials.
  2. ACWS New York - May 6, 7, 8 2016

    No Rome Kirby on the list for the ACWS NYC.
  3. 2015 Sydney to Hobart

    that could come back to haunt them
  4. 2015 Sydney to Hobart

    On the RSH site, the distance to the finish is to downtown Hobart. That is why the Rambler is listed as 1.1mi behind? Yellowbrick has a 10 mile lead to Cape Pillar for the Comanche.
  5. 2015 Sydney to Hobart

    Rambler hit a Sunfish??? What the fuck is that thing bro?
  6. Bermuda?

    - a US$15m (NZ$19m) event fee to the America's Cup Events Authority - a US$25m (NZ$32m) underwrite to cover any sponsorship shortfall by ACEA. - US$14m (NZ$18m) for site preparation and infrastructure for docks and America's Cup village - US$11m (NZ$14m) operation expenses for the America's Cup village. - US$12m (NZ$15m) to cover transport costs, security, emergency services, insurances and legal bills. You may has well bank on paying out the 25 to underwrite / cover the sponsor shortfall. That is a us40m fee to ACEA.
  7. Bermuda?

    It's official, they (bermuda) were truly bidding against themselves.
