      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. AC 36 Protocol

    Population GBR = ~65m. Population NZL = ~4m Seems like you should have a larger pool of talent to draw from; sailors, designs, sponors. That seems rather unfair.
  2. AC 36 Protocol

    In 27kts, 2.5m swell, wind against tide?
  3. AC 36 Protocol

    Yeap and the fundamental principles of speed and height.
  4. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    So 75ft monos for the AC in AKL, which ex-maxi owner(s) are in?
  5. AC 36 Protocol

    +1. We may even get proper wind limits and courses. Countries that have spent time and effort developing homegrown sailing talent should do well. Definately expect an Aussie challenager or two.
  6. Yacht brokerage owner/director earnings?

  7. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    I would be surprised if Norths even answered the phone for $50k.
  8. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Life Buoy, Brisbane to Keppel?
  9. Micron CSC - is it really this bad?

    Used it once, similar experience (tropics), waste of coin. Now use Altex. Don't get me started on that Velox crap.
  10. Sydney to Hobart 2017

    Sister already started mods...
  11. Hood sails sold to Quantum

    Couldn't agree more. The only two lofts I use any more are Hood and Q, not just because they build good sails, but their pricing is sensible and after sale service is fantastic. Doyle and Ullman always want my right arm and left testicle for any sail they quote on, Norths are the same except they want my first born as well.
  12. Team NZ

    Only wins when there's zero competition petal. Stick to children’s Pirate ship parties Wethog, closet you’ve been to being on the water in years.
  13. Team NZ

    Oh I don't know, you Aussies choked as CoR and that cut n shunt job hasn't even made Hobart in two years of trying.
  14. Live Racing Thread

    No it wasn't. The biggest takeaway is that both of these team have intelligent, articulate, humble guys that have respect for their competitor, unlike that ginger cunt.
  15. Team NZ

    I think Hamilton Island Yacht Club takes the choker award.
