      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.

The OR grinders are trying to hide deep down as much as they can but that probably has a negative effect on their power generation capabilities?

What, the start? JS misjudged time/distance

It's worse than that. He had no business being that close to the line. Gave him zero space.

Commentators: 'boats have been too far apart to learn anything' :D

 

Seems to have gotten soft at the bottom of the course, OR made some decent gains but slowed up as they approached the bottom.

Kudos to big NBC for bringing in Draper and Outerridge rather than using the Kenny + english no-nothing team.  Nice to have people who know something about these boats on the call.    They still lack the good play by play guy but the NBC feed is really damned good.  Now if we have one good race or one good crash while a half million people are watching, that would be really good especially as these two days are the only ones on major TV here in the US.

ETNZ seems to be going a bit excessively wide on the laylines.

Not exactly like they lack lead distance to spare but not tight.

Fuck, I wish ETNZ had got to BDA earlier to practice in the conditions and get starting practice.

Got really soft at the top mark for both teams.

Oracle romping down with wind closed a lot of distance before ETNZ got back to speed.

Still over 400m though.
