      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. Will they actually sail like the 3d animations? Nota a chance...
  2. AC36 CLASS RULE

    Steve, IMHO all this rule is unsatisfactory, complete BS
  3. I guess the solution will be to make them race in different lanes
  4. AC36 CLASS RULE

    No matter what they do, the rules are going to change the moment they put the first boat on the water, and realize the kind of shit they have done.
  5. Pardon me, but if I remember correctly, a woman´s leg was cut off by a foil from Spindrift. I guess that at 20 knots any foil can produce a severe cut, IMHO
  6. IMHO no way these AC 35 are going to be faster than a AC50, and no way they are going to foil easier than ac 50 or 72
  7. Are you sure It wasn't? then why didn´t they go for a more conventional, monohull?
  8. The more I look at the drawings, the more insane it looks to me...(guess no one cares). Raising and lowering those 1750 kgs. 3mts obove the water seems nuts
  9. Again, apples and oranges... You can't compare a kite foiler, with a 75 ft. 7 ton classic rigging monohull
  10. I can´t even see those boats foiling as in the clip... Waiting to prove me wrong-
  11. why am i here?

    Not sure it applies. Windsurfing in the nineties. Run over another board standing still on water. Didn't see it because of chop and sun. Strucked in my inner thigh. Lots of blood and flesh. Panicked. No time to think then. Managed to get to get up and reached shore (not so far away). Missed my groins by 3 inches and the femoral by 1- Very close. Kept on windsurfing . Still chills me.
  12. Best wishes for everyone. Although we have different opinions about each topic, we all have a common thing, we all love water, we all love sea... (that includes you Dougie)
  13. Gitana Maxi 17

    Not comparable, that's what I said.
