      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. A quote from JS "For the sailors too, what I'm fascinated too is did Dalton and co ask the guys that were on their boat what they think? Did they get a vote, the guys who actually go out there and race?" Spithill said. https://i.stuff.co.nz/sport/other-sports/97070759/jimmy-spithill-questions-team-new-zealands-plan-to-return-to-monohulls He's got a point, based on what everyone even including Burling and Gashby have been quoted saying.
  2. Barfy,

  4. Nothing rocky/wrong with silver underwear either. Hold the sausage?
  5. Linette, helmed by Patrizio Bertelli, 2016
  6. I wonder if in Auckland Prada will get a new pier named after them? A Prada Pavilion standing on it? Maybe, to repeat Dec '15, even ETNZ will sail a silver hulled boat and wear matching silver helmets?
  7. It was a good laugh, so it was the money quote for me. What he said about how LE took the loss in Bermuda matches the only, brief reports we saw. Basically, "When you compete among the best you aren't going to win every time."
  8. I heard that 'Prada' will also be the name of the new AC Class Rule. From Pedal Boat to Prada Boat.
  9. Another JS interview, radio, reasonably interesting and enjoyable http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/on-air/mike-hosking-breakfast/audio/jimmy-spithill-it-hit-me-hard-but-ive-learnt-from-it/ "I think people like me more when I lose!"
  10. In his latest webcast, the one RG is referring to, TE did suggest the possibility of a Langley/BAR cooperative Challenge.
  11. "The "Newer Ewer" of 1887 is rarer than first thought, as markings on the bottom reveal that it was executed for Wedgwood by famous Spanish architect and artist Antonio Gaudi, in what art historians refer to as his early peyote period.."
  12. Any new facts or rumors from this guy? In Italian
  13. Some rumors on teams in this one, attributed to TE http://www.sail-world.com/Europe/Gladwells-Line---More-from-la-Stampaand-from-(la)-Taipa/157414
