      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.

Will the intricacies and interior workings of the wing be available to the public after the race?

Good question. Clean?

If GGYC wins, and given that they have said that the Cup needs independent management, who would be the candidates to be on that entity, and who specifically should chair it? (there's alot of questions about structure and terms of reference, but for right now, let's stick with the overall concept and the specific people how might serve it well)

 

Would really like to hear what Fish has to say on this topic.

Do they think that the AC can ever regain the stature it had before all this

 

lilly-livered whiny-assed bile-spewing weenie-wanking court litigation ruined the whole fucking thing? <_<

Please discuss the presence of 6.7 in the 5th Feb NoR despite the IJ ruling on 2 Feb stating that it must be removed.

I think the former trustees (NYYC, RPYC, SDYC, RNZYS and hopefully GGYC) could appoint an independent manager/management group to run the regatta and chair mutual consent meetings/agreements without over commercialising the event.

 

Remember, the AC pretty much turned to shit in the last 5 or so years. Before that, whilst the deck was stacked in favour of the defender, it was winnable, and done with the traditions of the cup upheld, men acting like gentlemen and common sense prevailing. The return of these 3 items will see the AC have its lustre restored.

i only think that will happen if it's light air. >7kts. and only to box out A5 to get to the left side for better pressure (if the wind models are correct)

If you could explore the rumor that LE just bought the Beechwood Estate in Newport and whether this means he intends to bring the Cup back to Newport when he wins? Have to believe that would cement his legacy in American yachting.

This is why the new problem is HB only having 1 vote in the now called SNG RC when they vote on conditions. Other RC members are Freddie Meyer & Nicolas Granger

 

Note TE is BOR rep on the RC boat.

HB confirmed that he is the final decisionmaker today. No worries (we think). He is a straight shooter for sure.

Qs for the top multihull designers

 

What do you estimate the relative weights of the two boats are?

 

Which set of hulls - a5's "pregnant" high aspect ratio hulls or DZ's more tubular Amas do you think generate less drag?

 

How critical is stiffness of the relative boats to performance

 

What do you think are the maximum winds each boat can sail in

HOLY SH******!!! Just had one of the most amazing nights anyone could ever wish for thanks to SA (especially clean), our new friend Fili**** at BMWO, and Tom Ehman for being such a gracious host.

Heres the link: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2471728&id=6236964 and watch the video that was Live and I know Clean adn Company are currently editing and about to post. Hope they don't cut the first 15 minutes where I bullshit with JC about earlier today while we wait for the important people to show in the Press room. Can't beleive I met some of my sailing idols tonight.
