      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.

    Usa 17 b is really a whole new boat Wing or not they knew the had saved to much weight of her . From ive been told C will be something of star wars epic design . incorporating what they have learned . And still are . the speed difference and wind polars between artemis and or where night and day. Its not just foiling .But to not have foiled the first boat at least once would lead you believe there way behind .But look how fas Oracle turned it around . Lets hope Artemis can do the same or its going to be italy and nz zooming around . all summer.

  9. AC Youth Cup

    @Nav I dont belive that true I know there were worries about the use of the boats by some teams who fixes it who pays if there damged etc . In a Interview at the last ACWS i asked Dalton this very Question on Sustainble ACWS If New Zealand were to win by some remote chance LOL . He felt cost would be a issue to continue the current program unless costs could be cut . Perhaps by then Mister Honey will have stream lined the TV side of things a Huge cost at current ACWS Venues . Then again when we do retain the Cup the value of the series will increase as well . Alot remains to be seen . The Ac72 The Louis Vuitton venue the spectacle facter etc. I do know the Youth Americas Cup deserves more media attention than its receiving . Red Bull needs to step up its exsposure via There Dedictaed website , RED BULL TV etc . Very Very surprising no english team .

    The Story

    LR do not have that sort of spending power. They have the smallest budget of the 4 teams. $40 million over 2 AC campaigns. Lr is only building one boat this we know .
  12. Artemis?

    How many believe this to be a stall tactic Why even share such info ? its not like the whole bay and a Army of helicopters saw this . I see A vote coming on Safety and Time issue extending the test period.Now Question is who's side is Korea on better yet do they still have a vote , with this kind money at hand 200'000 entrance fee gets you a vote any way you look at . Cheap compared to whats at state with one boat destroyed one seemingly under review. NZ an LR will be flying around down south soon . Will LR want the extra time as well ? .

    In theory you could build a test bed that does not meet the box rules if thats the case . Seems a bit out of the box One the main appendixes for the boat and you can test it separate lets face it the wings a big part . We have seen whats happens to the foils that have been scaled . Look what happened to this wing as well , thou full size . Thought this was a Orma 60 ? perhaps well see the first Sailing of BIG Red One Fleet week . I dont think the Artemis base is going to open its doors to play show and tell . Wonder what type of daggers where on the Orma during testing ?

    Question the testing of the first Artemis Ac72 wing does this constitute A test day and if not why ? I would say Artemis is the Big Red one . or as i dubbed months ago Wingzilla for several obvious reasons .Technically I would argue that a test day . Entz was out testing before official measurement so both tests should count the same . Its a Appendix of the AC72 and its was sailing .. I havent found any wing test days in the Class rule yet still looking .
