      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.

    If that is what you are looking for, I'm afraid you are in the wrong Forum

    The pleasure was reciprocal, SR. But next time I do have to share with you the result of my lifelong quest, the place where they make the perfect carbonara!

    ^ OK, but that's beside the point. What really matters is who is LR"s Design Coordinator - I can only agree with A Class Sailor that it cannot be Martin Fischer

    Martin Fischer confirmed the hypothesis that ballast should provide inertia and facilitate flying tacks. Besides, the boat will be going upwind at 22 kts min. if on one foil; lowering the other foil, the margin to splash down is slowing to 16-18 kts

    Not bad. Still, Clean could do better

    ... as a certain team is rumored to have found out on its first non-surrogate ...
  8. AC36 CLASS RULE

    Some interesting stuff, but this cries out to heaven: Clean - alayhi s-salām - for all his faults would never have produced such a pathetic video
  9. ^ Foils must be symmetrical, so fences would have to be (unnecessarily) duplicated on the inside. Guess there's a drag penalty
  10. AC36 CLASS RULE

    ^ Hmm ... "Most modern appliances use a combination of electronic and electrical circuitry". If you were to rummage through military surplus stockists, most likely you'd find gyros powered by 400 Hz asynchronous motors - and electronics are bound to be in the loop

    http://farevela.net/cms/2018/04/11/luna-rossa-ecco-primi-giovani-ingaggiati-matteo-celon-enrico-voltolini-e-andrea-tesei/ First three graduates from the New Generation initiative: mid-level Laser, Finn and 49er sailors. LR's PR department does its customary lousy job of bowdlerized statements, F1 drivers are entertaining by comparison
  12. AC36 CLASS RULE

    Is Fischer back there?
  13. AC36 CLASS RULE

    Fascinating - but what/who spins the gyros?
