      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

  1. More details here: http://orci.ncth.gr/docs/protest9-a.pdf
  2. The boat is 36000 E excl. vat , the sails ( main,jib, code0, gennaker) are approx 7000 E ( choice of the sailsmaker is free ) Here we are overtaking the farr49 Brava : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sUsKl4thK-c and here another little clip: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x55fxji_des-images-du-xo-racer-par-voile-magazine_sport more info here http://www.xosailers.com/ and here http://www.paolobua.com/
  3. On my Aero47 in Sardinia and on the XO racer in Trieste
  4. It works really well, the fixed part with bridle is where we tack the code 0 . The forestay attachement is independent from the bowsprit
  5. we did 2 boats with retractable keel and 1 removable but fixed when sailing (fixed with 2 bolts ) . The draft is 2 meters, gc is very low
  6. No, she's the ex Share 640 but flush deck, built in sandwich in the same female moulds
  7. The story of our Barcolana race was on the front page a few weeks ago http://sailinganarchy.com/2015/10/13/big-sunday Finally we have this good clip (which went live on the italian tv) of our downwind ride against a 1700 boat fleet, enjoy:
  8. The fixed part with the bridle is for the code 0, and the sliding tube for the kite
  9. We were in Trieste to race in the Barcolana, with our Share640 Zerstoren . Onboard Antonio Scarpa the builder, Adriano Condello the sailmaker and top class helmsman, and me the designer of the boat. Conditions were instable, gusty wind and black clouds. We were in the smallest class at 6,4 meters, with some 1600 bigger than us boats on the line the start was not an easy task. First leg was downwind and we had a simple plan: pedal to the metal on the start line, just sail the boat and go. So we hoisted the gennaker at the gun, started planing at 15 knots, and bye bye everybody. 1700 boats were there, and we were gone. Rock steady planing straight out of the blocks and all the way, nobody could keep up for a while. We did the complete leg sailing free and fast downhill on our own sea, the wall of sails behind us was far away and couldnt disturb us. At mid leg the baddest maxis (Robertissima ex Ran72 feet , Maxi Yena 80 feet and another one) were in front, we were sailing side by side with a Vor60, surfing all the way with the tv helicopter above us, show time. Volvo 70, tp52, Rc44, every kind of boat was there, and was well behind, we were simply faster ( 2 full knots faster than the rc44, so you know how much faster). It was magic, exilarating, and it lasted half an hour. At the first mark, we fought for 5th place overall with Paul Cayard who was on Anywave a racing Frers 65 . I think they couldnt accept that we where in front of them on our little war machine (1/3 of their size), so they waited and waited with the gennaker up until it was too late and they went long and wide around the mark. so we passed them inside . The rest of the race was a long upwind leg, and a gusty and bumpy leg near the cost up to Trieste. To go fast downwind you have to be good, but to go fast upwind you have to be rich,so it was just impossible to resist against boats 3 or 4 times our lenght, physics comes into play upwind and biggest win. It was amazing to see the parade of badass boats that were behind us downwind and had to work uphill to pass us, if you are onboard a maxi like Pendragon or a tp52 it must look odd to be behind a 20 feet boat after 1 hour of racing. It was good to see that the crews of many bigger boats where cheering and applauding for us, that is cool sportsmanship. So we worked our way uphill on the long second leg, than on the last leg the wind was totally unstable in strenght and direction so it was hard work, but we were still grinning because of our downwind ride. We finished 73 overall, we won our category, the next and the next one too, and we had a great time. After the line, thousands of people on the dock that saw the race on the maxi screen where exulting for us and thanking us for the show we made,that was an emotion, there are nice people in Trieste. Our boat was fast, beautifully prepared our sails from Eurosail where simply perfect, were are happy for the job well done. This is the 4th victory in a row at the Barcolana for a Share 640, we started winning in 2012 and this time we were able to really show how fast we are. Photographers Andrea Carloni and Max Ranchi shoot good pics of us You can see a little clip here: And have more info here : https://www.facebook.com/Share640?fref=ts http://www.paolobua.com/ cheers Paolo Bua
  10. J boat sells a brand, so IMO they can sell whatever they want and there will always be a lot of customers happy to drink their kool aid , thinking they have a cool boat. Sailing a Share640 or another proper sportboat is not harder than sailing a j70, it is just way faster and more fun.
  11. Perhaps it's due to having someone standing on the foredeck... Perhaps you should clean your glasses USA, there is noboby on the foredeck, the crew is in the cockpit where he is supposed to be going upwind Who said upwind? http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/uploads//monthly_08_2015/post-10179-0-69915100-1440668887.jpg Yes I said upwind dude, this is the clean wake loose cannon was talking about.
  12. Hi Paolo, my sincere compliments for the design, very nice boat indeed. It looks even more gorgeous while sailing! I have recognized the place in the pics. It is at Polo Nautico di Trieste, and the hall in the first pic seem to be the same one where the offices of Ullman Sails are. Right? If I find some free time one of these weekends I might take a closer look at the boat, out of sheer curiosity. But I won't ask to give it a try because last year I've been diagnosed a series of serious issues with my lower back, so dinghy or other physically-demanding sailing is a no-no for me now. Anyways, keep up the good job and good luck! Slavi Hi Slavi, if you can go to Trieste during the Barcolana weekend I will be there and I'll be happy to show you the boat

  14. I will be onboard the black Share640. The white Share won the last 3 editions of the Barcolana, so we go there to win (even if the barcolana is a big mess with 2000 boats on the water)
  15. Thank you Huey, yes Mayo has done a good job, the work with cnc cut plywood is straight forward, really not much fairing needed (that's a big thing, everybody hates fairing) The Mulo is now called Share 640, http://www.paolobua.com/share-640-4/ the first and second boat won every race they entered in the last 3 years. Now in the same mold they have built a new flush deck version which is really a letal weapon, she was on the front page a few weeks ago as another "what is it" : http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?showtopic=167971 Some pics:
