      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. Oracle Team USA

    Be fun to be a fly on the mast during the race: Simon Hull and Spithill! No holding back of some tall tales I bet.
  2. Team NZ

    Nice work Dan!! http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/new-zealand/2017/10/team-new-zealand-s-technical-director-receives-highest-design-honour.html

    yeah good one Alan. Passed the time at work yesterday nicely having that to listen to. Come on back down here mate - the water is warming up and there's a shitload of stuff for you to cover.... And yes, SA is often on a lot of screens at the base.

    you mean the same RG who was the only journo who fronted up, put the pieces together and made it apparent to all just what a fucking farce Oracle were trying to run over ETNZ wrt the pulled Auckland Qualifiers? Yes he's a local who is a sailing nerd but good on him. Way too many arse-licking sycophants out there when RC and JS were calling the shots about how amazing the new F1 of sailing was going to be. What a bunch of cocks. And btw, "Lone Wolf" is a good read and I hope it sells well. Certainly a lot more to it than JS ghost-written bollocks.
  5. Team NZ

    stripped down then loaded into containers. Currently somewhere out on the big blue sea heading back to AKL. The last man standing flew out about two weeks ago - never to return!!! heh.
  6. comms underway with google to try and get the seven (!) years of YT material restored. Cunts.
  7. Team NZ

    Dana and Niall were outside the team base daily keeping up with the play as much as they could. Key aspect - "outside the team base". Dana's got a loooong way to climb to get any redemption with the team - and anyone with a brain.
  8. Team NZ

    Correct - only a a couple on his shin. The guys were bloody lucky all up not to have come off badly. Imagine smacking into the daggerboard at pace...
  9. Team NZ

    Nice summary; thanks for the link Terry. Hopefully see a few Anarchists out on the Waitemata with us for the AC Rum Race Friday week.
  10. What was your favorite race/moment?

    +1 definitely. That took some real balls and showed Pete was unafraid to stick it to him.
  11. Team NZ

    Outstanding effort. Hard to top this one.
  12. Live Racing Thread

    If all goes well Clean, there'll be more than a couple of cold Steinies ready for you....
  13. Oracle Team USA

    Neil Wilkinson: big design loss for OR.
  14. Team NZ

    apparently the squadron had 600 people for the first races yesterday. Anyone here go along? Sounds like a great way to start your day.
  15. Oracle Team USA

    Great example of how petty OR supporters (more likely the employees) are: all the NZ flags that were put up late Friday night have been removed as of this morning (Sun) in BDA. 10km stretch from South Rd/Middle Rd junction all the way to Dockyard. Even NZ bunting on a team supporter's private road frontage. Bit sour at getting shafted in the first two races eh?
