      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.

Some day he'll make the AC Hall of Fame.

 

I hope that at that HOF ceremony they show the great photo of GD grinding on board Aotearoa, neck veins bulged.

 

I hope someone during the induction asks "mate, what the hell went wrong?"

If any of you have seen this weeks Mainsail you would truly see just how much NZ is STILL behind their squad . The video footage of those crowds in shed 10 dieing as they watched those final races is really astounding . The overwhelming recepton they gave ETNZ on their return home after losing showed just how much class they have and love for their team . I wanted oracle to win , mostly to shut up some of the unbelievably obnoxious " fans " on this forum but I knew how much this really ment to the true fans of ET and that tempered my joy a good bit. Grant said as No 1 guy on the team the failure falls on him . He's taking responsibility for the results and obviously maintaining his fan support . I look forward to seeing ET back in the game for AC 35 along with MOST of their fans :)

Giving Grumpy this award is like giving Hitler an award for services to humanitarian rights.

 

There were so many better candidates than this Loser.

 

My god! this is a disgrace to many great sailors who have achieved so much and actually won something.

Twice winner of the Whitbread (once as skipper/campaign director), 4 other podium finishes in that race all as skipper/campaign director.

 

He also skippered and won the The Race on maxi catamaran Club Med.

 

Not bad for a loser :)

once winner as Skipper in a 70 foot ketch v 60 foot Sloops. Hardly a tough race.

 

Skippered Club med against two dogs that crashed and burned.

 

 

So basically... not a win in a serious competitive event with equal hardware.

He is well known in the Wellington area for his sea sickness. Gets crook on the ferry apparently. Tastes his lunch twice as soon as they clear the harbour. Don't think he would have been much use on a Whitbread.

Is that it?... fukk! That is pathetic.

 

Even if that was 160,000 people at $1.00 each that is still less than 2% of the population...

And it is probably just 5-10,000 people which means 0.2%.

 

Wow what a majority,

 

Sorry but the spin doctors have people like you believing anything.

 

99% of Kiwis do not give a shit about ETNZ or AC. Sure there was good TV patronage during the cup. But that was because there was nothing else on and kiwis needed something to cheer about... oh and it meant they had a excuse to be late to work...

 

Which explains NZ's very poor productivity stats!

So the 1.2 million people who tuned in to watch the races was 1% of the population?

 

Wow!

 

I had never realized that the equivalent of the population of the US was stacked on those few islands.You really must be cramped.

What crap.

Club Med finished in 62 days and LP, on Innovation Explorer, 2 days later. The only real difference between the 2 boats was a storm sail. Cam Lewis on Team Adventure was behind.

By that standard, is Joyon's solo around the world record a minor accomplishment?

No, but he would be more deserving of this award than dalton.

Well I'm biased on that one, but am curious where you draw the line and why. I'm not convinced there is a methodology to all of your opinions, but I'm willing to be wrong about that.
