      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.

    Azura boat is Botin and build by King Marine : King Marine Announces the construction of two new TP52 King Marine will build two brand new TP52 for the 2018 seasson. We appreciate the trust of Azzurra and Onda teams who has chosen once again our boat yard. The two sister ships will be designed by Botin Partners and already under construction at Valencia.

    Well said , and agree - can add also Juan K to the list with his non orthodox Origin design . But I mention Carkeek, as Platoon already have winning experience with them : http://www.carkeekdesignpartners.com/c47-platoon-wins-orc-overall-keil-week-2014/ BAR already have Gladiator platform, so interesting to see designs for : Paprec Provezza Sled ETNZ

    talking about botin - this is their latest design , altho 40 ft, seems 2018 tp52 will be very similar : http://www.botinpartners.com/project.php?id=76 same time carkeek designs are winners last 2 years in FAST40+ Series, and was thinking if someone consider them as alternative to botin/vrolijk
  8. tp 52 crop 2018

    6 to 8 new tp52 are expected to be build for 2018 season, as well as not less than 3 AC teams will race on the 52 super series wonder if any designer will break status quo, or again only Botin and Vrolijk design anyone with clue, gossip or tiny hint for the new boats ?
  9. what is it?

    well - you sir, may be ... guess please
  10. VOR 2017-18

    +1, Just one point - even if volvo/geely shut down, or sell the 'yacht' shop , i'm sure someone else will fill the gap in no time.
  11. which yacht designer ?

    well, question with many open doors - first step i would make meetings with all above mentioned, plus http://bakewell-white.com/ , thend second step : give them the chance to surprise me
  12. Old Whitbread/Volvo Ocean Race yachts

    'Philips Innovator', 65 ft, Judel / Vrolijk design, Whitbread 85/86, finished 2nd http://www.yachtbroker-charters.com/A1248D_whitbread_maxi_65.htm
  13. AC36 Auckland NZ

    Now can be 'solid' wing - tomorrow "retractable', or helium-pumpable next day, or what-ever-designer-find Funny thing is that most innovate ( historically ) class is Int 14 (many times 1st to implement/develop boat feature/gear), and now there is a chance AC/VOR/IMOCA mixture monster create the ulimate in/off shore version of the 60'ft 'swiss army knife' boat for sole/full crew - funny/curious to follow ...
  14. AC36 Auckland NZ

    Well - this one seems even more 'avant-garde' - misiing only foils
  15. VOR 2017-18

    Following nowadays well working commercial approach, there ususually is 'A' product/team and 'B' product/team, like F1 etc. 'B' team is just a bit less funded, altho share same tech like 'A', but give the chance to shine to the new talents at lower expense. Combine with host city income - mathematics can work for ETNZ 'B', as VOR extra value attached to AC main stake. Not to mention they already have participants, as individuals at almost all major sailing invents.
