      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. And let's hope they will agree for a free world-wide TV-coverage! Tired to have to fight to have just some bad resolution and lagy pictures for such a important event! Back to the live youtube multichannel!
  2. Live Racing Thread

    :-) It's strange that they adapt the course to racers... Cammas would had a better chance too with the 7th leg.
  3. Live Racing Thread

    Ok, thanks for the explanation... strange anayway!
  4. Live Racing Thread

    Can someone explain me why USA/JAP had the normal reaching finish (7 legs) and not the other races?
  5. Live Racing Thread

    Is Oracle just helping Japan sparing-partners and aiies to stay longer in the Cup? Strange start....!!!
  6. How to watch live races?

    Should be OK here: http://www.sky.de/sky-sport-news/livestream-120317 But you have to use a VPN, simulating germany. But in german. May be you can follow te speaker on FB and use this for pics...
  7. How to watch live races?

    Ahhh.... usin Apowermirror, able to stream my phone on PC screen... already better, as the AC35 app dont accept tablets! here the link to app (android) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.apowersoft.mirror&hl=en&rdid=com.apowersoft.mirror Working well with recorded video. I just hope the AC stream will be OK :-) For real fullscreen, you will have to take the paying version of the app, but like this, free and convinient
  8. Here something to ruin all your speculations and strange messages from the three last days.... Jason have also the right to have something other to do than filming editing and posting stuff for your eyes, and he had to calm down after his exciting day on water :-) But he is posting again! Great! And still somany thanks to JASON!!! Keep going guy, your making something great happening!
  9. Foil tip surface

    The very high reynolds numbers and the attachment of the flow could be an answer.... The boudary layer question is very complex, and some exemple like shark skin and golf balls show advantages on roughness. http://www.aerospaceweb.org/question/aerodynamics/q0215.shtml
  10. Team France

    Techno on foil control... French: http://groupamateamfrance.americascup.com/fr/news/564_FOCUS-TECHNO-5-Le-systeme-de-commande-des-foils.html English: http://groupamateamfrance.americascup.com/en/news/565_TECH-FOCUS-5-The-foil-control-system.html
  11. Artemis?

    Thanks for these answers... I didnt have the time last month to read everything on this case! For me, the complete lack of information on such a tragic problem is clearly a event management failure. A tragic death in your event, a big discussion close to lead to the ruin of the race, and still no single information on what went wrong? I've never seen any sport event with a killed participant which did not made public in the 10 next days what was the probable main cause of the trouble, and the way this particulary cause will be adressed to avoid or reduce this risk during the next run/event/race. Alpine skiing/F1/motorbike/ 24hours from le Mans today... they are many sports with fatal issues, but they never hide the causes, even if it's just a lack of luck, which can happen anywhere! It's a shame to speak about safety, when you dont explain what went wrong! Come on Russel/Lary, make a public news explaining the most probale cause of the fatal AR incident, even if your are only 80% sure of it!
  12. Artemis?

    Is it now known and public why/how Artemis get folded, killing the poor Simpson guy? We speak about safety rules, but we still dont know what went wrong and why? I was surpised from the respect shown after the incident, the week of silence and the absence of accusation to anybody, but now, 6 weeks later and in a big fight around safety rules, I would appreciate to get the real info to understand the all safety rule story...
  13. AC Youth Cup

    Felictations to the TILT team for the first place in regattas! Good training on D35... Ask EB for some money as Swiss representant!
  14. Radio Control Multihulls

    Wouahhhh How do you cut so nicely foam? Type of wire? Type od alim? My leading and trailing edges look never straight! Thanks for sharing techniques!
