      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.

    Hope you don't have to sail against Bangladesh.

    Still trashing Deano, you will probably trash Burling when he sells out to the highest bid, because he probably will and why shouldn't he ? Plenty of precedent.

    What's ETNZ' s official budget this time around?. Must have a huge payroll with all those serious blokes scurrying around in black kit.

    I vote for the big boy pants, seems like deja vu to me. ?

    It's only Force 5, a strong breeze, you kids need to get outside more often

    Everyone is fallible, don't read to much into it. Spithill is pretty good at getting into people's heads though, this could be a tough one for Burling.

    All still ranting nicely I see, well better luck with this one than the last go around.

    Can't believe you guys are still talking about this. OTUSA outsailed ETNZ, they were the better sailors with ultimately the faster boat. If they had got the same performance right out of the box they would have whitewashed ETNZ. In the end the results make ETNZ look better than they really were. Sorry to all the Kiwis for wasting all that money and emotion, I was pulling for you but the end result was the correct result. I saw every single practice, catastrophe and race first hand and close up, it was a great spectacle and I wish it were to be repeated. But it's nice to have the Bay to ourselves once again and business is way up from last year.

    Artemis is back on the Bay. Foiling a 45

    I think AR's problems are wing related sailing the downwind legs. The wing just looks wrong, camber appears to reversed in the lower third. I can't put a finger on exactly what it is but it doesn't look fast and apparently it isn't. They do seem able to sail a little lower than LR.

    Seeing AR first over and accelerating was brilliant, for a brief moment I thought we were watching a truly unbelievable scenario unfold, and we still could. They could go home happy now but I would love to see them get at least on win.

    Great idea! We will continue with our two boat testing program immediately. Probably in about an hour. If ETNZ and Artemis go home, maybe it's not too late for you to enter - after all, you already have the right number of hulls, a 2 boat program and you're not afraid to sail the when the breeze picks up. You already spend more time in the course area than all of the challengers put together.

    Great news ! AC 34 is cancelled due to a complete lack of reasonable consensus, everybody pack up your toys and go home. Can't happen soon enough for me.
  15. Artemis?

    I don't know about the beam issue but I did hear that the boat is overweight, can't confirm that however. Probably shouldn't relay rumours but hey that's what SA's all about right?
