      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. I'm quitting posting on Sailing Anarchys America's Cup Forums now that a MORON like Patrizio Bertelli and Moron People like Ernesto Bertarelli, Bruno Trouble have their lousy hands back on the Cup and destroy everything with their monohull crap. Congrats Team New Zealand for winning AC 35 but selecting Luna Rossa as CoR is bad.
  2. Man, I dig nationality when it comes to the America's Cup. When I first became aware of the America's Cup back in 1987 national pride dominated those of us in America who were rooting for Dennis Conner to bring the Cup back home from Australia. DC's boat was even named "Stars and Stripes" for God's sake. And when he successfully won he went on a celebration tour around America starting with a ticker tape parade in New York City. As an 11 year old kid at that time national pride is what hooked me on the America's Cup and the same thing happened a year later during the Seoul Olympics when American athletes like Matt Biondi and Carl Lewis opened my eyes to the Olympics for the first time and made me proud to be an American. Sure growing up in Annapolis I spent a lot of time on my Step Father's sail boats so it stands to reason I should be a fan of the Cup right? Not necessarily. When it comes to nationality in the America's Cup I've compared it to the Olympics many times in the past while debating in America's Cup Anarchy (ACA). Every four years TV ratings in the US go through the roof for such sports as Men's/Women's Swimming, Women's Gymnastics, Men's/Women's Figure Skating, Alpine Skiing events, etc... Sports that no one not intimately involved in said sports give a rats ass about the 3 1/2 years between Olympics. Nationality is the reason why these sports matter every 4 years, the only reason. Hell, just the other day one of the biggest beneficiaries of Nationalism in regards to the Olympics, Michael Phelps, was on TV for an hour getting ready to, and actually racing, a computer generated great white shark to see which was faster of a 100m course. If it wasn't the nationalistic pull of the Olympics no one would of given two shits who Michael Phelps was never mind wasting an hour waiting for him to race a fake shark. Another good example of nationalism making certain sports popular look at Women's Soccer. Women like Mia Hamm and the shirtless Brandi Chastain rocketed to stardom on the back of the American flag. At one point they thought they were the reason for their success, not USA on their chest, so they started a professional Women's Soccer league. It lasted three years and lost approximately 100 million before it folded. Why? People wanted to see the USA Women's Soccer team not the Bay Area CyberRays or the Washington Freedom. The America's Cup falls in the same category as Swimming and Women's Soccer in my opinion. Embrace nationalism and people will pay attention. Will the Cup ever be on the level of the Olympics? Doubtful, but nationalism could generate enough interest to successfully fund teams from many different nations and secure the future viability of the Cup for years to come. But when I say embrace nationalism in regards to the Cup I don't mean half assed measures like what Larry Ellison and Russell Coutts tried to pull for AC34 and AC35. Where they slapped TEAM USA on every part of their boats and gear yet had the entire sailing team jabbering on with an Aussie twang. American's might be largely ignorant when it comes to sail boat racing, but they know when someone is trying to bullshit them when they see a boat with TEAM USA on it but the guy behind the wheel sounds like Crocodile DunDee's kid. Now with Emirates Team New Zealand (ETNZ) the new defenders of the Cup there is talk of a true nationality rule. Nothing specific has been announced but there is talk of anywhere from 50% to 80% of the sailing team must be from the nation of the yacht club (challenger) they represent. I would much rather 60% to 80% for this cycle of the Cup but 50% is better than nothing, IMO. After the debacle that was AC35 (American Defender not defending in America) a nationality rule is crucial for the much needed reset of the Cup. Especially when it comes to America's involvement in the Cup. Not since AC31 back in 2003 has there been more than one American team competing for the Cup. Since 2003 Larry Ellison's Oracle Racing team has been the sole American, in name only, team. Between 2007 and now Ellison's Oracle Team has went from being ashamed to fly the American flag over their team base in Valencia, Spain to riding off to Bermuda to defend the Cup because cities like San Francisco wouldn't pony up money and property to Uncle Larry Ellison. But now us American fans of the Cup may be done with Larry Ellison supposedly representing America in the Cup. With Ellison's sworn enemy in Grant Dalton part of the organization effort, and reportedly up to three American teams not affiliated with Ellsion expressing interest in challenging for the Cup, there is hope that at least one true American challenger will be on the water in New Zealand when AC36 kicks off. And with American sailors like Bora Gulari saying that they only have interest being part of the Cup if its with a true American challenge (http://sailinganarchy.com/2017/07/24/thats-a-wrap-5/) it says to me nationality is not dead when it comes to the Cup. At least I hope not... WetHog Whats on my IPad song of the day:
  3. America's Cup Event Authority is listing 2 x AC45s made by Core Builders in NZ. This comes with a tent, moorings, crane, shore handling gear and some spare parts (including North Sails sails). Each boat is currently packed in 2 containers in Bermuda; one for the hull and one for the wing. Please submit an offer in a direct message. Thanks for your interest and support of the 35th America's Cup.

  5. We'll have our sights on Sojana, a Farr Yacht Design beauty, during the 2017 America's Cup Superyacht Regatta this month (http://www.boatinternational.com/yachts/the-superyacht-directory/sojana--45647). While waiting, we've been reminiscing about another Farr gal we once knew well, Sweet Okole, built in Hawaii in 1976 from cold-molded cedar and Koa wood. The old debate over ultralights being "strictly downwind boats" was a moot point with skipper Greg Gillette, "who nearly sailed Sweet Okole to overall victory in the [1977] SORC." 'Sweet Okole has gone six knots dead upwind,' Gillette says of the boat designed by New Zealander Bruce Farr. 'I think we could have won the Hawaii Around-the-State race, and this is an event in which sailors often contend with 14- to 16-foot seas and winds of up to 35 knots'" (Richard W. Johnston, "Going with the Wind," Vault, Sports Illustrated, November 20, 1978, https://www.si.com/vault/1978/11/20/823171/going-with-the-wind-some-say-his-boats-can-only-go-downhill-but-bill-lee-who-holds-the-transpac-record-claims-that-ultralight-is-right-in-any-direction). Sweet Okole went on to win the IOR Division in the inaugural 1980 Pacific Cup (Kauai Yacht Race), https://pacificcup.org/article/looking-back-first-pacific-cup; https://pacificcup.org/archive/pcupresults/PCup 1980 results.pdf. Among other races, she won Transpac overall in 1981 and placed second in 1985. Sadly, she lost her rudder just 200 miles from the finish line in the 2014 Pacific Cup ("Failure to save Sweet Okole wasn't an option," http://www.latitude38.com/letters/201409.html), but most recently placed sixth overall in the 2016 Pacific Cup (https://pacificcup.org/results2016). Ageing well, Sweet Okole continues to race on. —Captain Gigi, Sailing Anarchy blog, June 4, 2017
  6. Have been watching Ac on BT 1 now they change to BT 2 and we all have to pay more
  7. Going to be in Bermuda to watch Oracle take on ETNZ - can't frigging wait! My husband and I have rented a small power boat for finals weekend. Looking for anyone that might want to join us on the water to help share the cost of rental & fuel. 4 spots each day open and we will have the boat the 24-27 (if it goes the distance!). Get in touch here and we can swap contact details!
  8. Put your winners of today 29th of May down below and daily predictions Of The Louis Vuitton Cup
  9. The racing has been great so far. Aside from OR heading on to the Match, a couple of boats are seemingly assured of progressing to the semi finals now. As I understand it a task for the top qualifier from the current Qualifying Rounds is to choose who they will race against in the next round. The simplest approach will be to choose the perceived weakest boat in the other 3, with an eye on the weather forecast. A more courageous but risky call would be to choose a stronger competitor to ensure more competitive racing. Seems an unlikely approach as a short and possibly one-sided series probably has more benefits to the winner - e.g. minimising wear and tear and freeing up development time. Another variation of the second option, which may be seriously considered by BAR, AR or ETNZ (if the top qualifier is one of them) is to make a choice that sets SoftBank up against the perceived weakest other qualifier. If SB then progressed to the Challenger Final, there would be a real benefit to the eventual Challenger in the Match (regardless of who it is) from keeping SB in the competition as long as possible - reducng the time that OR can work up against SB by a few precious days. Anyone have any thoughts about this last option or other suggestions?
  10. Day 1 of America's Cup Qualifiers has been postponed due to strong winds. Here is now Day 2 of the AC Qualifiers Match-Ups Race 1 Emirates Team New Zeland vs Oracle Team USA Race 2 Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing vs SoftBank Team Japan Race 3 Artemis Racing vs Groupama Team France Race 4 Oracle Team USA vs Land Rover Ben Ainslie Racing
  11. Hello fellow anarchists! We have created a website dedicated to providing a voice to sailors that have been silenced. In particular those that have been treated unfairly by the sports governing body. We hope to give sailors a voice and reduce the increasing number of legal actions taken by sailors. Please feel free to drop in at: isafcorruption.wordpress.com

  14. Hopefully this can be a specific thread for news and developments related to the America's Cup in Bermuda. I will be uploading a few pictures on the weekend highlighting some venue progress to date.
  15. I agree mate, but it needn't be a monohull only event. In monos the AC32 event worked brilliantly using a box rule and had more to give the spectators than any of this nonsense and in actual fact the big screens gave the land spectators a better view than us reporters had out on the water. If the cup continues as a multi event then the box rule has to go and we revert to the old J-Class format which was " Make a challenge and throw money at it". I'd be interested in seeing that. Ten multihulls of different designs and configurations racing under a box rule of max loa 75', min loa 60' x max beam 50', min beam 30' x max draft 10'. This would make the designers work for their money and create all kinds of innovations that would gradually trickle down through the system in the form of build techniques and development materials. It would also create intrigue, spygates, and bankrupt ex millionaires. That is what the AC is all about. It WAS the sailing worlds most prestigeous trophy because of those things. It is now a borefest. I really hate to say it , but, I now wish Bertarelli had won the last event because no matter what we all thought of him, he had panache, he built a brilliant infrastructure, he created intrigue, and he did a lot to help the poorer teams stay the course and keep the entries to an acceptable level. Yes, it was all about money, but then the AC has always been about money. The difference I see between AC 32 and AC34 is that the money is flowing the wrong way. The AC has always been about making the contestants poorer with a trophy for the winner. It now seems to be about making a very few inner elite a huge amount of money and to hell with what happens on the water. We win, great,,, We lose, no problem, and we made a buck either way. Whoever wins this event is of little importance because the only loser has been the event itself. WcW Source: Commentator thread......
