      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. cyclors advantage?

    There are shots where you can see each cyclor pedaling his own pace. So I would assume the pedals are not locked together.
  2. BAR is a dangerous Motherfucker thread

    I concur, the massive damage below "BAR" was done by the aft beam. Moment of contact. Frame 611 of video "Japan & GBR Collision At America's Cup, May 27 2017"
  3. Helmets compulsory at A Class Worlds

    For all helmet fans: Wearing a helmet as a car driver or pedestrian also lowers your risk of head injury significantly: http://lesswrong.com/lw/mk0/wear_a_helmet_while_driving_a_car/ http://www.copenhagenize.com/2009/08/walking-helmet-is-good-helmet.html Please be a good example an wear a helmet when driving and walking!

  5. Gunboat G4 Foiler

    Variable pitch might be enough?!
  6. Gunboat G4 Foiler

    That's 18 to 20 knots of breeze? Looks more like five or so to me.
  7. Stunt S.9 in Full Production

    Yeah, if I remember correctly it was something like "the carbuncle at the arse of sailing"
  8. 18' Whisper Production Foiling Cat

    That's bull... Most of us aren't even totally stretched (the head is usually tilted) http://sealaunay.photoshelter.com/gallery/EUROCAT-2011-F18/G0000M36QqhzMycU But we usually wear some stuff around our chests which weights a bit. And more if wet...
  9. Gunboat G4 Foiler

    Thanks for the leniency, Chris! I still believe your "interest" in foiling must be questioned after masterpieces like "Foiling is an oozing carbuncle on the ass of the sport of sailing." in the A-Cat thread for example.
  10. Gunboat G4 Foiler

    That raises the question: What are you interested in? From your previous "contributions" to threads regarding foiling it is mostly nagging, debasing other members and showing off your undoubtedly existing gift for the english language.
  11. Gunboat G4 Foiler

    The profile of the more vertical part of the daggerboard is also asymmetric and works in the wrong direction (leewards) on the weather board.
  12. New Nacra 15

    Is there a technical reason for rudder foils to be swept back? I thought this is only useful when you are moving very, VERY fast?! (near and above the speed of sound) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swept_wing
  13. Radio Control Multihulls

    Sorry fur the late reply, but no, not necessarily: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gurney_flap
  14. Radio Control Multihulls

    Hi Doug, Congratulations from me as well! Great to see your boat in stable foiling mode! And those ama foils are really sharp looking weapons.
