      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. BG now in Sydney. Moored at Woolwich with WOXI
  2. I hate to see this beam Why? Have you seen the first one, you know the one which broke a first time when the boat was under tug and a second time in about 16-18 knot of wind ? OK, perhaps they reinforced it but it still seems to be the same. Why the V ? why is the beam looking seeming so flat while most forces are vertical ? Whose sailor will be happy to sail with this beam ? The first break was because they loaded the beam without the wing on, and it is shaped that way so the boards are level with the base of the wing.
  3. The boat is Upside down in that picture, they do have reverse hulls.
  4. any news on where the boat is now? is it still on Treasure island or back at the base?
  5. +1Not going to say anything more about this...... Do you know anything about design and safety Rossy...??? And no insults please... somebody just died. I think you missed the case. Read Frontpage Sailing Anarchy please. do you really think they wanted someone to die?
  6. any news on where the boat is now?
  7. I think thats the wing base counter weight for when they unstep the wing.
  8. the youth nationals just finished up on the derwent and it wasnt a minute too soon! it was freezing and very windy the whole regatta.
  9. in the second picture the dophin striker is in the water
  10. any pics?
  11. i hope so! they sure have kept us waiting
  12. When will they be sailing? Same time as oracle?
  13. Remember the vsail (I think) interview from awhile back, during the Newport acws with Steve Clark? He said that one of the big teams has a grinding pod right on the back beam. We found our team
  14. Cool thanks
