      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.

  3. Where are they now? - Retired America's Cup Boat

    Unfortunately, this boat and that part of the yacht club embody the boom and bust of Spain in general and Valencia in particular. Stay tuned for another photo, maybe this summer or next winter, as ESP-67 (former USA-67) is docked a couple of meters away...
  4. News from SF Embarcadero...

    I'm not making it up! This is what the America's Cup Committee of the City of Alameda stated last week: a. Discuss Work Plan for 2014 Committee discussed San Francisco’s submitting a formal proposal for AC35. Oracle is expected to answer in March. The teams would be based at Piers 27/28. There’s speculation that Larry Ellison bought Pier 80. The Committee shared thoughts of how important it may be for the AC35 event venue to provide TV image of spectators and of the value of actually watching the race in person rather than on a screen. The Committee talked about using barges for grandstands.

  11. Artemis?

  12. Artemis?

    An Antonov took off today, Sunday 24 March, at 10:15am from Valencia's airport. Since there aren't thousands of them coming and going here, I suppose it was with the Artemis AC72. Unfortunately, other obligations didn't allow me to go to the airport early in the morning.. I guess it will land sometime on Monday in SF.

    Too bad it's all taking place in SF... Had it been in Valencia they wouldn't have gotten away so easily... Still I don't understand their secretism!
