      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.

    My bet is, he's Martin and Petes cameraman.

    14 x 29ers training 4 times a week and all of them heading off to the world champs at Longbeach in July tell me that MB and Kohi are in good shape...

    Nothing more than a wild ass guess, but perhaps that down turned trailing edge isn't carbon, but perhaps a very stiff rubber that flattens out with speed. Sort of like a plane wing using flaps for low speed, but optimized aero for high speed. That's a plausible theory, Monkey. But don't tell, Doug. It might give his one-foil-fits-all-conditions idea some credence. And the supposed broken foils from February were just the trailing edge coming unstuck. Easily removed at sea before return to dock which is why no one ever saw any broken carbon.

    Glossy insert in the NZ Herald this morning with competition http://www.waitoafreerange.co.nz/etnz

    ETNZ doors still firmly shut on the port cam just now
  6. Bermuda?

    Thanks for organising the camera Soho. Corner of the Cross Island base now in shot. Just a wee bit more and we'll see when the ETNZ wing is going up
  7. Artemis?

    Scoop transoms + yellow rudders = broken boat is fixed
  8. Bermuda?

    Looks to me like the Port Bermuda can only needs to pan 10 degrees right, and the bases would all be right there.

    Don't let him get to you Weta. All the ETNZ foiling secrets leading to the Tractor stayed well hidden for a long long time down on the Waikato and out the back of Waiheke

    It had a quick trip from Sydney, only 2:19 https://flightaware.com/live/flight/UAE9245

    Just saw them sail through the middle of the Murrays Bay club champs. Opti fleet on one side and Starlings on the other. Would have been jaw dropping for the dinghy sailors.
