      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.

America's Cup Bibliography

 

Master link - many thanks to pjh
I've never seen a comprehensive list of books on the America's Cup. If anyone has seen such a list, let me know where to find it.

In the meantime, let's make our own list. Here, compliments of the Great and Wonderful Internet, is a start:


  • Guthrie, Julian - The Billionaire and the Mechanic: How Larry Ellison and a Car Mechanic Teamed Up to Win Sailing's Greatest Race (May 2013)
  • Coutts, Russell, Challenge 2000: The Race to Win the America's Cup
  • Shaw, David W., America's Victory: The Heroic Story of a Team of Ordinary Americans -- and How They Won the Greatest Yacht Race Ever
  • Stone, Herbert L., The America's Cup Races
  • Rousmaniere, John, A Picture History of the America's Cup
  • Rousmaniere, John, The Low Black Schooner: Yacht America, 1851-1945
  • Mitchell, Carleton, Summer of the Twelves
  • Brooks, Jerome, E., The $30,000,000 cup : the stormy history of the defense of America's Cup
  • Alvord, Douglas, America's Cup
  • To the Third Power: The Inside Story of Bill Koch's Winning Strategies for the America's Cup by Paul C. Larsen
  • The America's Cup (Great Moments in Sports Series) by Pat Ryan
  • The America's Cup, 1970 by E. Wesley Oliver
  • Illustrated Encyclopedia of World Sailing by David Pelly
  • The Black Yacht by John Baxter
  • America's Cup Trivia (Maritime Trinia Series No. 2) by Jon B Johansen
  • Defending the America's Cup by Robert W. Carrick
  • The America's Cup: The History of Sailing's Greatest Competition in the Twentieth Century by Dennis Conner
  • The America's Cup 1987. The Official Record. by Bob and Ross, Bob Fisher
  • Showdown at Newport : The Race for the America's Cup by Geoffrey F. Hammond
  • Born to Win: A Lifelong Struggle to Capture the Americas Cup by John Bertrand
  • Stars & Stripes America's Cup Cookbook by Dennis Conner
  • No Excuse to Lose by Dennis Conner
  • The Lawson History of the America's Cup by Winfield M. Thompson and Thomas W. Lawson
  • Beken of Cowes. The America's Cup [the definitive big photo book. Amazing!]
  • Coutts, R. & Larsen, P. (1996) Course to Victory. Auckland: Hodder, Moa Beckett. The kiwi boy comes up through the YC system and wins the AC. Gives credit to TS and his mates.
  • Bevan-Smith, J. (1999) The Shape of Speed. Auckland: Reed Books. A history of the Farr/Bowler organisation. They have never won the big one? Why? I like all the dirt in this book. Was there more to Sir Peter than meets the eye?
  • Conner, D. and Stannard, B. Comeback: My Race for the America's Cup. New York: St. Martins Press. Howe the Big-Bad-One got the trophy back to the Excited States. You have to hand it to Dennis! And Stannard (an Aussie) is a good writer.
  • Bertrand, J. (1983) Born To Win. New York: Bantam Books. John is a bit up himself. Bondy hated the book. But oh what a tale of drama and intrigue. Besides, I rather like John Bertrand.

If someone has the time and inclination to research the Protocols and revisions it would be handy as a reference to who did what when. I'd do it but ... hey look a rabbit ...
