      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.

What a shame that this is the racing that makes it to network TV in the U.S.  The earlier racing was spectacular.  This is cringeworthy.

Gonna need some conspiracy theories to make this interesting.

Lazzas money has obviously run out and they all need a Kiwi win to keep the show on the road!

Super close top mark.

ETNZ off phase let Oracle get to nearly overlapped on the mark.

ETNZ just clear.

Then Oracle flubbed their gybe, ETNZ nailed it & sailed away at 20+ vs under 10 :ph34r:

Fuckme that was too close.

OR was maneuvering a ton before the top mark, that may well have depleted their tank completely..

Yup went to gybe and just couldn't.

Upwind, the kiwis had to tack back to the right but it shifted and dropped velocity.  Tacking back would have been death.  So they had to go to layline.  Otusa were in breeze and could go to port boundary at the layline and do a foiling tack.  That's all it takes in these boats.  TNZ did a much better job defending through the windward gate, and executed the gybe too.
