      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.

Star Worlds - USA 1, 2, 3

Recommended Posts

Yup, so we get the geographical advantage this year. Still, no Kiwi's.

 

USA has now won the Star, Etchells, J24 and Lightning Worlds this year.

 

And people still think we such. Yeah Right.

Local classes don't count for shit.

 

Nor do Stars. That's his point.

Well, in all fairness, the class is nonOlympic so anitpodeans can no longer get paid to show up unless it is as crew. Stars are hardly sailed at all there, there are a lot more ozzies at the 14 worlds.

Seriously it's Peter Houston, he only ever has one point, being racist about New Zealanders, but if you can read more into anything he posts your welcome to it.

Even if he starts a thread seemingly about something else, that's where it always ends up every time, usually though he just starts there and gets worse...

After the star was dropped from the Olympics the Aussie boats were sold off for a song. You could buy a top flight boat for $5000. They're so complicated that the guys who bought them spend their weekends trying to figure how all the rig controls work.

I thinks its fucking brilliant, he obviously hates us, and we dont even have to put in any effort to get under his skin. He winds himself up without any input at all.

I must say, if there is one Oracle supporter who is sure to be a bad loser and even worse winner it is this guy.

You didnt give it enough rum then, we float fairly well when full of rum, only normally in a face down position. The best thing about it, kiwi sailors are blind to the threat hidden behind the offer of rum, sweet rum, speaking of which, my glass appears empty...

 

I am off to the bar, I may be some time....

I'm not entirely convinced this has anything to do with the AC

Standard Huston Kiwi cage-rattling. Predictably, it has worked.

I just figured it was time to call a spade a spade, pretty much ignore everything he posts unless I feel like laughing.

What point! Star, etchells... worlds are world events with sailors from around the world.

 

y88,s and pied pipers are 2nd rate NZ only classes sailed by Joe average club sailors that would look rather piss poor at a world event unless they could modify the boat for an advantage.

 

Down at Tiburon and richmond YC,s there are better world class etchells sailors sailing club races to a world class level every weekend.

 

NZ is full of many sailors sailing mavericks and moaning about handicap systems.

 

That's why they don,t front in classes anymore.

My comment wasn't particularly aimed at you, sorry if that was unclear. As for calling a spade a spade,you are wasting key-strokes as Huston doesn't come here for discussion.

No! You and many small minded kiwis have a big problem. Your talent base has shrunk. You guys have not got the skill and dollars to go to the big " world class" events and your'e whole sailing system Is geared around a few rich Olympic sailor has beens and the AC which has drawn your'e genuine talent offshore.

 

beside peter Burling and jo aleh you have nothing and nobody to front the elite world fleets.

 

Namely

 

Finn

 

Laser

 

Etchells

 

star

 

This is where all the great sailors are derived!

 

Truth hurts aye kiwi,s

 

Good luck for tomorrow.

Hardly a fleet nor quality of regatta that has quality sailors at a world level moron!

 

The elite of sailing is not AC in any form. World champs, in the big five classes, is where its at.

Sounds like you've got a finger on the pulse of all things yachting in NZ. Who's the current 2nd rate Y88 open champion out of interest?

So Stars are no longer an olympic class right ? So its like claiming a world FD championship held at home when hardly any competition turn up ?

 

Amazing work, wheres the live coverage of this massive achievement ? Truely laughable

I'm not entirely convinced this has anything to do with the AC, unless the good sailors who are indeed US nationals make it thru the ranks for next LVC...on LE's next challenger

 

In short: Take it to Star Anarchy.

Moot point WT. Yes he is a good sailor but he is sailing Y88's in NZ!! Which proves my point.

 

You are comparing a local club championship , disguised as a nationals, with one good sailor and a heep of average guys versus a world champs with top class sailors.

 

And as for the pied pipers!!! There are better world class sailors sailing j24's on a Sunday here.

This shit fight is really fucking stupid!

If there is anything I can say about the Star class, it is that the Star class is a cohesive community of sailors that pay very little attention to national boundaries.

It is insulting that such an idiotic argument is associated with the Star class.

Why don't you guys take this to one of the other brilliant AC threads and leave the Stars alone.
