      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. Wrong. The reason why they took so long to reveal the new boat is because they asked all the potential challengers on the idea of foiling monohulls before it was finalized.
  2. Right up until that last line, I though t it was Grant Dalton talking....
  3. Fuck Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!
  4. Did anyone notice how no-one is helming when gybing or tacking and pete is running across the boat? He even went into a gybe ran accross while the boat was turning and grabbed the helm on the new side with no one helping. Other boats have the trimmer lean back and helm while in transition.
  5. Fuck yeah! On ya bike slingsby!!
  6. Ok, so whats stopping Orifce from having a collison causing irrepairable (within the timeframe) damge to ETNZ, Orifice then use boat 2 to complete the racing? Weve all seen how damaging even small collisions are.
  7. Burling: Team NZ 'excited' by fierce Oracle rivalry, smack-talk
  8. Deans starts wernt that bad, its his finishing thats bad. Where as Petes starting not so good, overtaking and finishing is great. Together it could have worked out.
  9. Can some one shed some light on Deans depature from TNZ? I cant remember exactly but somthing like below? ETNZ-Dean, your off the boat do you want the coaching position? Dean-No fuck off I want to drive. ETNZ-Fine fuck off then. As opposed to ETNZ- Ray, your off the boat do you want the coaching position? Ray-Sure thing. I do believe ETNZ were better with him on the team but not helming, it could have been a great way to test Burling starts.
  10. This guy's a real sour sack. I wonder what dalts done to ruin his day?
  11. Yes, but Barker seems cursed and just cannot seem to hold on to the lead.
  12. Yeap, very happy to have Burling at the helm.
  13. Wind guru is also saying that.
  14. I hope he's right. Although I hope the wind is too strong tomorrow to race.
  15. Where did you get this from?
