      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.

Should not have had that last race today in those fluky conditions, Not the fairest racetrack. It is what is but would have been better for the RC to have a better race track for race #7 considering the stakes.

Better team won.

Even Ian Percy will agree with that.  :lol:

Agreed but I guess we'll be seeing Bermuda as a host in the next AC in the coming years.

He's on the global feed.  Here in America we have the B team so have to look for a back-up broadcast

Well done, get in there TNZ.

Respect to AR. The only team to come close to us, and to not spout Larryvision all the time.

TNZ are in the AC match again. Only missed 1 match in 22 years and that we we're not allowed in then. 

Race director Ian Murray said after losing in 1987, what goes up, must come down. TNZ may be about to prove it.

What if ETNZ-AUS wins AC35 and KR gets a true American Challenger together from Newport?  An effort to bring the AC back to its rightful home.

Nice dream but it would never happen.

Yeah it pretty painful and very dull for the most part.   Kenny may not get everything right, but at least he has some personality and seems to work well with the rugby guy

At least AR didn't lose it in nine races-- that'd leave NO and AR wondering what might have been if he hadn't fallen off the boat.

Exactly, PB actually won the last 4 starts, he just didn't have the setup to hold on to it yesterday. Maybe he's gonna get into it just in time:D.

So sorry for NO and the Artemis guys, loveable team. But all in all they made too many mistakes.
Now ETNZ, go and kick Oracle's ass!

I think NZL should be the ones to keep guessing about their future. Granted NZL won this round but how well? They barely won there races and most were won because there competitor (ART) kept breaking down and had unforced errors. There was more than a good chance ART would have won if they didn't have so many break downs and losing a man. They killed ART in the last race but the race course was heavily skewed and ART lost.

ORCL already has one extra point because they already beaten everyone including NZL and I seriously doubt ORCL will have the same mechanical issues so yeah its a very solid chance you will be watching the next AC in the same time TV schedule.

Burling has no baggage with Jimmy Spithill, there will be no hangover from 2013, so it's game on with two races on Sunday morning. And you can watch it free-to-air with Prime announcing just moments ago that they'll show coverage from 6.30am each race day.

Well played Artemis. A very likeable team (minus Percy trashing us as junior sailors). Outteridge and Burling are the current and future stars of the cup.

 

Congratulations boys! Well done and well deserved! If we get the right conditions, we'll ream Oracle.

Ominously, Burling has started showing some swagger in the pre-starts and around the course. He's come out of his shell.

i'm feeling good at this very moment!

5-2 is the only score that counts. Today's race was a statement of intent - I'm picking ETNZ to be 1-up after Day-1 of the Match.

I wonder if ETNZ 'dialled it up to 7/10' again between races :D

Several days to bump max setting to 11 ;)

What kind of changes can teams reasonably make to foils or wing setup in between races that they cannot make with their onboard controls? I assume a lot of the messing around with ETNZ's wing was about configuring it better for the conditions.

No, just a super athletic girl. Tends to shrink them a bit. Her butt is truly amazing.

Ok, If I don't know shit then tell me how many starts & 1st mark roundings did NZL win against ART in this round? How many breakdowns and unforced errors did ART have in this round?

You better hope ORCL has the same speed as Soft Bank.

Yes NZL won 5-2 and now in the AC but that does not show how close it really was when ART was actually competitive without failures and unforced errors. Cant realistically think a series against ORCL will give NZL the same chances of winning, no way. Then add ORCL's extra win point in the next round gives heavy odds that kiwi's will be watching the next cup in the same red eye tv time schedules. Sorry you muppets, but no sleep for you.
