      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. Anyone seen Jimmy lately?

    Or how he has never one the americas cup by coming through the defender series and beating everyone! One the DOG challenge then the defender in San Fran! Team oracle bmw is not that good I think and it was proven in ac35!
  2. Team NZ

    What was the item that was mentioned that begins with P that someone mentioned a month or so ago?
  3. Race Replays

    I? there a complete race to watch from this point of view? Would be so interesting watching a whole race. Might even get sea sick from moving the camera around 360!!
  4. Team UK

    I agree with that! They stuffed it up just as much as the current lot have.
  5. Team NZ

    Has anyone seen any good footage of the recent Louis Vuitton Cup presentation to ETNZ? I have only seen highlights. Was the complete event even recorded or shown on Americas Cup TV? I cant find it on their site at all. All the pressers but no cup presentation. I'm sure if another team had one it they would of covered the whole presentation.
  6. Team NZ

    I agree! The bases join each other I think - I'm guessing a open door(physically and literally) policy between both bases - come and go any time you like!!! Sure they would not have to leave one base to enter the other!! Just the secret passage between them!!
  7. Team NZ

    On part four of the video at about 5.20 onwards what's the two things on the stern? On each hull but looks like they are in different positions. Not sure I have noticed that before? Any ideas what they might be?

    Yes read that as well. I guess the "history" of the cup no longer matters. The just want a F1 sailing series. I think if Oracle win there will no history to the cup any more. And it will be held the USA for another 100 years or so or however long they held it before Australia took it off them. Lets make it a "world series" that only the USA compete in. Who want's to help the opposition "warm up" unless you were under their spell which I am guessing all the of the puddles are. They have no idea what TNZ might do for the cup if we win. All the rumors are likely feed from Orcale head office.
  9. If TNZ were to win this would GD be able to rip Orrifice a new one!! Would he be able to lash out at the like of LE, RC, etc or would he still be constrained by his "gagging rule". Would love him to have a good rant and tell the world what really has happened behind the scenes with the latest AC and how bad the management really was. I mean they can't even keep spectator boats of the official race cause. Hew basic is that!!

    LOL you mean the "Facebook Generation" in the famous words of Sir Russell. I would be quite happy to watch these races go at least another couple of legs. Guess the bottom line for the ACEA in the mighty $$$$$.
  11. Team NZ

    Since when did yacht races need a time limit!! I don't see a time limit happening in the Volo ocean race to keep viewers happy! They should just have a 9 leg race and be done with it. The 7 legs seem to go way to fast. You can hardly call the first and last a "leg" either! Just a speed test run.
  12. Artemis?

    Just like Oracle can't find a USA Helmsman....
  13. Team NZ

    I heard that!! Like if the races are lost for the rest of the week(heavy winds) its the last race winner that goes through. Why not just flip a coin to stat with to see who goes through. Why did they agree to this one? Would a count back not be the best method - like how many times did you beat your opposition in the round robins. Lets just hope that this is not the case and that the best two teams make it through to the final of the challenger series.

    It's been reported that Burling has nothing to do with the foil adjustment at all unlike all the other helmsmen. That's why he does have time to look outside the boat etc. Tuke does them on his bike. He has controls there as far as I know and what has been shown on tv.
