      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.

  6. ACWS New York - May 6, 7, 8 2016

    What happened to Artemis? I thought they were the class of the field.
  7. ac45's daggerboards

    ^ LOL Nav you really have no clue do you?
  8. Bermuda?

    Flap material and thickness is all controlled by the rules. Really no reason to deviate.
  9. Bermuda?

    People made the same comments about the last cup boats. Turned out it was just the sun angle.
  10. J/88

    Looks like our Friday night beer can races.
  11. Team France

    Didn't JK design Artemis and then go missing after the breakup and loss of life?
  12. Oracle Team USA

    Ken Ried and San Honey had a bit to do with it.
  13. Artemis?

    My understanding is they will be assembled and tested in Alameda.
  14. Merlin at 75 mph

    Way back when, I stopped by the "Chicken Coup". There was a long skinny boat being built upside down. I asked a young bearded builder what it was and he said "a trophy machine".
  15. Team UK

    Convex foil airfoils are not new. I've seen lots of them in both Artemis and ORs camps used on both the foiling 40s and the 72s.
