      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. for what it's worth the two Shosholoza boats are sitting in Cape Town at the MSC yard. looking through google earth, the one got there 2010, the second 2011. and various states of containers coming and going and covers changed too https://www.google.co.za/maps/@-33.9253331,18.4717693,3a,75y,321.32h,85.24t/data=!3m7!1e1!3m5!1sYHWXHqoICMLcV-9rVrDUBQ!2e0!6s%2F%2Fgeo0.ggpht.com%2Fcbk%3Fpanoid%3DYHWXHqoICMLcV-9rVrDUBQ%26output%3Dthumbnail%26cb_client%3Dmaps_sv.tactile.gps%26thumb%3D2%26w%3D203%26h%3D100%26yaw%3D222.15904%26pitch%3D0%26thumbfov%3D100!7i13312!8i6656
  2. Live Racing Thread

    AC50 = 4KSB
  3. Live Racing Thread

    this is just for shits and giggles now. try and see if they can can etnz in a winning position on final leg again?
  4. Race Replays

    Clearly your youtube search skills better than mine, can't find full race replays. wheras if i looked for the tour de suisse or le dauphine (cycling) i could get anything pretty quickly there
  5. Race Replays

    has anyone tried uploading races to youtube? do they get taken down?
  6. excuse the ignorance, who is P$B? (not in the newbie guide list) For me the AC has always been about the pinnacle of yacht racing and progress. Currently it's foiling. It's not like match racing was part of the challenge for the first 100 or so years of it anyway.
  7. Penalties? Huh?

    It's not working, but from a viewing perspective it is pretty awesome that they can dial up the umpire and query it immediately
  8. Nationalities of sailors

    been an issue for a while...remember how Ailinghi basically poached half of ETNZ and all of a sudden you could be swiss.
  9. Live Racing Thread

    yes BUT, without VMG it's almost useless to have boatspeeds
  10. Live Racing Thread

    I dunno about chickening out, on the 3rd upwind that was a pretty ballsy cross from port and then crashtack. What does seem odd to me is the hectic dialling down from starboard boat whenever there is a potential cross, doesn't seem very 'seamanlike' and can create quite a bit of confusion when boats are closing at 40kts each. looks a bit too dangerous to me
  11. How to watch live races?

    yes, been 100% till now. oh well, back to cricfree
  12. Race Replays

  13. How to watch live races?

    how does one search for sailing torrents..it's not like we normally want to watch old stuff! the cycling equivalent has been very 'successful' http://www.cyclingtorrents.nl/login.php?returnto=%2F
  14. How to watch live races?

    that would be nice. would like to watch the ETNZ ORACLE one. because currently, I feel like we have gone backwards from the pinnacle of spectator sailing, AC34. I only say this, because guess what, i can see Oracle vs ETNZ, in san francisco, every minute of all 19 races
  15. ACWS live, without the awful app

    so has anyone found any quality uploads of the portsmouth racing online? nothing on youtube currently otherwise i'll just remember how awesome it was on youtube and watch AC34 again -
