      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.

    Nothing whatever to do with sailing...But that is fucking awesome. Nice way to start my day!
  2. Team NYYC

    So Hutch is on the team. Sailing? Management/design only? Who will the sailors be?

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sailing/news/article.cfm?c_id=106&objectid=11929785 America's Cup: Old rivals set to take on Team New Zealand
  4. There is set to be a new sponsor for the 2021 edition of the America's Cup. Italian sailing website Vela is reporting that Italian fashion brand Prada - one of the key supporters of sailing team Luna Rossa - is set to take over from Louis Vuitton as a main naming rights sponsor. According to Vela, the challenger series will be renamed as the Prada Cup, of which the winner will then race Team New Zealand in the America's Cup. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=11924593

    Sounds awesome. Adapt this to AC racing and bring it on! "The precursor of a new generation of giants of the seas, this boat features innovative, purposeful planing hulls beneath the waterline, which are a far cry from those used on the current fleet of oceanic multihulls. Everything about the forms of the floats and the central hull shouts flight. With this in mind, she will be equipped with the very latest architectural and technical advances in terms of appendages, with T-foil rudders and L-shaped foils, which are sure to set tongues wagging. With everything geared towards flight, a great deal of care has gone into the aerodynamics of the platform. The forms of the beams in particular testify to this, as does the integration of the living space/ cockpit between the two beams."
  6. Poll: Next AC Boat

    I betting its a foil assisted mono with a wingsail. Mark my words.
  7. Team NZ

    I like this: " GA had a twinkle in his eye when he was talking about plans for the next cup defence in terms of the boats they're planning. "You ain't seen nothing yet". Can hardly wait for that news.
  8. Right. GD said there will no 80% rule. There will be some rules relating to that however saying that "a challenge from Japan must be Japanese" so there will be some 'made in country' rules and I would guess some amount of citizenship required. He doesn't want to restrict good sailors from sailing however. 80% means a lot of Aussies and Kiwis are out of the cup then.
  9. Next USA Team

    What about Team Trump. Make America Great Again perfect slogan. He's got the dough. The boat could have a gold plated mast, and TRUMP printed all the fuck over it. Paint it orange with a yellow wing.
  10. Team NZ

    Link to that interview?
  11. The Next Boat-----2020

    Something like this with a wingsail could be cool. Gotta keep the wingsail! Not old cloth sails! GD said the AC needs to push the envelope with technology so I thinks wings are in for good. Must keep the speeds up too after all this foiling. "It is unlikely the boat will be used for anything more than exhibition sails, however, with Team NZ expected to move to a different class of boat for the next event. The Kiwi syndicate is currently in discussions with Luna Rossa, the official challenger of record for the 36th America's Cup match, over what shape the next event will take. It is rumoured the Italian team are determined to see the Cup return to monohulls."
  12. Team NZ

    So what is thought about Coutts in NZ? Bastard traitor? Hero gone bad? Still a hero for winning it for NZ the first time?
  13. Team NZ

    GD speaking the good words, bring back fairness, ethics, and a level playing field. No more stacked decks. It's one of the biggest reasons I was rooting for ETNZ as an American. Good on him and the Kiwis!
