      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. It is telescoping and fits on deck without issue.
  2. I am unable to participate this year, but Jabuka was a blast in 2014. On SWE27 we have a new tool this year, a carbon fiber extendable whisker pole.
  3. Oh, and jib on furler works well with the usual trade off's.
  4. On SWE27 we have tried to have all sails except main on furlers. We used SpinEx top down furlers It works, even with gennakers, but there are less things to go wrong without them. The main issue with gennakers on furlers that we have had is to get tension in the halyard during furling, it takes several rounds for it before the top down furling begins. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152436644101773&l=31a8b8f977 https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152436643621773&l=cb36080725 And then there is this situation, that is a bit frustrating, but can happen.. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152689839796773&l=e96e506755
  5. Seven SSC27 entered in the 2014 Jabuka Race in Croatia. Today some test and practice with 10-27 kts winds. Check out official Seascape 27 Jabuka web site: http://jabuka27.com/
  6. Looking great!
  7. About cockpit layout it works really well. I don't know what I would change to be honest. We will add clamcleats for the Spinex furlers to inner jib and downwind sails. Whenever I need to do something that requires hands off the tiller the remote for the autopilot is around my neck. When by the tiller I can control the main and jib/gennaker for trim. Of course I can run with a lot more power and smaller margin if one person is manning the jib/gennaker and I only do the tiller and main. With crew of four cockpit is still roomy enough not to get in each others way. When on downwind with jib Combine this with the Bluetooth stereo and Spotify from my waterproof smartphone the boat really turns heads in tight archipelago sailing. :-D Just came home from over 300 nm in six days including test sails - this wouldn't have worked if it wasn't a very good boat. When we headed out six days ago we were still not familiar with the boat.
  8. 12 miles left to Malmö after over 300 miles in six days. https://picasaweb.google.com/113749386683227905034/Seascape27#6010031404673275250
  9. Another good thing to know when going downwind is that at 11 knots the rudders start singing with a pitch changing with the speed. Awesome stuff to experience.
  10. Another fun fact about Peters test sail is that we completed it by entering the marina with gennaker and full main up and engine not in the water. Then we reversed up to our slot inside of the other boats on display. Crew of four who had not sailed together before. It is a confidence inspiring vessel to say the least.
  11. What? Or who?
  12. Peter, all lines are either right in length or a bit long.:-) We found the reason to the engine tilting/lifting in this boat. The laminate board for the outboard flexes. It has given in but not cracked. Heard from another owner with.same setup tjat he had no issues. It occurred the day before the event, wasn't lile that before. Easy fix. The boat as shown had only sailed to the event. Except for test hoisting sails in Malmö the boat is mostly as delivered. We did this 280 nm run very much as a shakedown. So it is performing well straight out of the box. Only minor adjustments and tweaks done. :-)
  13. Second time out with the boat, in flat water. In Swedish: http://sundetregatta.blogspot.se/2014/04/seascape-27-testad-andra-turen-nagonsin.html In English with Google Translate: https://translate.google.se/translate?sl=sv&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=sv&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fsundetregatta.blogspot.se%2F2014%2F04%2Fseascape-27-testad-andra-turen-nagonsin.html&edit-text=
  14. Here is a pic from Peter (BLUR) with me sailing upwind with gennaker in 6-8 kts wind. Illustrates well how manageable the boat is. Never mind the windex gates, they seem to have come loose - the arrow still points correctly and the gates aren't really necessary since the sails are very communicative.
  15. Great shots Peter! This little clip is from transport sailing back to Malmö from Gothenburg, currently staying in Falkenberg tonighr. We are three on board today and it is very liveable on board. I have spent the last five days full time living in and sailing this boat. Works very well. Video is 17-20 kts wind with 54 sqm main sail One Sails 4T and a 82 sqm gennaker also from One Sails. Boat speed is 10-14 kts with with thus setting. I am sure we could have squeezed a bit more speed out of her but mostly enjoyed the ride. It was first time for Jens to sail with gennaker and he did very well. Love the feeling how stability increases with speed.
