      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.

Thank you for this. I was shopping in Costco instead of watching!

This way I can catch the replay.

Enjoy watching ART the most out of all the boats. These guys wear their hearts on their sleeves.

Maybe they get a bit too excited at times but that is what I find appealing. Not bad sailors either.

Somebody is posting the semifinal races on YouTube.  Complete? races that Rudder_NZ missed are there.  Quality not as good though,

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCg0qodCqCHAkmu8FkxXixrw

Well, that didn't last long: "This account has been terminated because we received multiple third-party claims of copyright infringement regarding material the user posted."

I would gladly pay to watch these semifinals.  NBC Sports isn't broadcasting them, and America's Cup has blocked their online viewing here in the USA.  Even the Hola region-spoofing app seems to be having problems.

Replays. What replays?

Well, the new generation flying circus groupies have a very short attention span apparently - so no need for them to review any of the racing.

Looks like Michael Douglas has lost interest in the AC already in his role as unoffical ambassador and spokescelebrity for the event. Just as the challenger finals start, he's turned up in Montréal for the Canadian F1 GP. So much for his family's 400 year history with Bermuda and all that. Will sell out to the more exciting event at the drop of a hat!

not that I've heard of but having said that, I have heard of YouTubers recently getting copyright strikes just...JUST... for using the press video footage! what on earth do you think they'd do if we started uploading full replays of the races themselves probably get the channel banned! the way it's being done now by torrents they cannot stop they are powerless to stop it, and I all I can say to that is.. "Feel the BURN bitches!" :)

It appears no one from ACEA is sending takedown notices to Youtube, judging from the number of pirate racing posts that have stayed up.

That's probably something more personal; ACEA goes after people they don't like, and Geoff (WOW) doesn't really follow the US Copyright rules.  Look for America's Cup on Youtube and you'll find dozens of copies of the actual racing so far, scattered around and getting no notices.  Do the same search for UFC or NBA and you don't find those, 'cause those actually have value to their broadcasters unlike the AC, which can't even beat a replay of bicycle racing in the cable channel ratings war.

SPOILER ALERT - avoid below if you havent seen Day 2 LV final races 

 

Thx Rudder_NZ for all the support with this. Now I have a really big question to ask!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   

Is it possible to have the races uploaded in such a manner so that we dont know how many there are tomorrow??? If there is only one or two we know NZ has won before we start watching. I am no IT geek so dont know what the options are or how much work it is. If it cant done I will just have to watch and convince myself that the other races weren't run for some reason!!! :)

Appreciate the uploading regardless. Thx

We are a fussy bunch -:) ... but hey when you get it for free you want the best- right -:) ... should not be too hard just to post each after each race .( as long as you can see through the tears...)   .. and lets HOPE we only need one ... not going to Tegal tonight  ( to count the chickens  .....)  -:)  Great work Rudder ... many thanks you your work, hope others have sent you some drinking money ... if Team NZ do make it through do you think that Sky will loosen the grip and let us watch for free? ... maybe Bill could pay for it to be Free to Air ? .... a point of National pride right ...

The simplest way to do that, would be to put all three in the same video file, so it's one long video labelled day 3.
You still get an idea from the length of the video, but wouldn't know if it was one very slow race or 3 fast ones for example...

Personally, I'm happy with whatever is straightforward for Rudder, that guy is the highlight of this AC and has made it such a great event for me.
I'd have missed pretty much the whole thing if it wasn't for the great he's done.

Thanks again Rudder & others, great stuff! 

- Can't get 2nd race today to download (overloaded, try again later) 

- Torrent file just hangs (gathering torrent info, please wait) 

I guess they are getting oversubscribed, or too many leechers vs seeders. 

Anyone else found having this issue? Or found a work around? Trying to see it before I hear the result...

I think posting magnet links is not a good idea as it is accessible to those outside of sailing anarchy. Or if there are magnet links they should be contained within a file that needs to be downloaded.

I had this problem yesterday when I was trying Transmission client. Ditched that garbage and went back to µtorrent again and now downloading problem-free again from 55 seeders. My advice is if you can't find any sources and you're using Transmission as your BT client, then get rid of it.
