      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. The Challenger of Record Luna Rossa Challenge will be joined by another Italian team at the 36th America’s Cup, according to local sources. The Sardinia-based Adelasia of Torres team looks set to throw its name into the mix when entries for the Auckland showdown officially open on January 1, La Nuova Sardegna reported earlier this month. https://www.boatinternational.com/yachts/americas-cup/second-italian-challenger-emerges-for-americas-cup-2021--35637?utm_content=buffer9a589&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer
  2. AC36 - The Venue

    My view is that Wellington are acting the way they are because Cindy does not want to take more Harbour. So they are wanting an option that is less than optimal because Cindy is a Greenie and she has spoken and the fools in Wgtn blindly follow other fools. Council and TNZ however, have looked at it more logically and tried to asses the actual best option.
  3. Team UK

    Fundraising are you Ben?
  4. Team Australia

    We don't have any of those in NZ. Try Straya.
  5. Team Australia

    "All the guys involved in that 2000 programme have gone onto some pretty successful careers... I was very young and it was a real bare bone campaign but it was a lot of fun ... I honestly don't know what my plans are right now, just keeping my options open." - Jimmy Spithill https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/other-sports/99722421/will-he-or-wont-he-jimmy-spithill-wants-australia-to-challenge-for-americas-cup-but-is-in-two-minds-about-returning
  6. Team Australia

    Oracle Team USA's Jimmy Spithill wants Australia back in the America's Cup "If you look around the teams over the past few campaigns, you see Aussies littered throughout all of them," Spithill said at a yachting charity event in Canberra, reported by The Age. "We're so associated with the water in Australia and I think the fact that the next one in is in New Zealand it wouldn't be surprising at all [to see an Australian team]. Spithill said he believes millionaire and reigning Sydney to Hobart winner, Anthony Bell, could be the key figure in backing the Australian Challenge. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=11957237

  8. Team NZ

    Sailing: Team New Zealand's turmoil before their America's Cup win "People don't know all these details but a few months before the America's Cup they had some breakages with the foils. They were in a tough spot in New Zealand," Kouyoumdjian told Nautical Channel. "They solved – and there was a little rule change that helped them a lot – what could've been an end gamer for them." http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=11956679
  9. Team China

    ~Stingray~ at http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=11955762 The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron Commodore Steve Mair said China's yacht racing team, China Team, have "huge ambitions" to compete in the next America's Cup. MR.CLEAN they'll be there, i was assured of this months ago by someone who should know ~Stingray~ Yep, we can probably count on 4 Challs so far. LR, LRBAR, QR, and Team China. Will China have Burling at the helm?

    Marvelly is like our current Govt - too tied up in idealogical dreams to understand the facts and then apply them in a logical way. If the facts don't fit, the facts are wrong!
