      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. J70 236 will be registered soon. Hope some more 70's sign up...
  2. Just in case no one from EYC/CRW responds, here is my suggestion: get to EYC early today. Last thurs. the park was jam packed with cars, due to the music in the park etc. the shore way was backed up in both directions due to the massive influx of peeps. As far as I know there is no special parking araingement but I could be wrong, either way get there early. I waited a solid 15-20 min. last week waiting in line on the shore way and that was around 6pm.
  3. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cleveland-Race-Week/107727335928107 88 one-design boats invaded Cleveland Race Week at Edgewater Yacht Club in Cleveland, Ohio from June 13-15. Eight fleets competed, including 25 J/70s duking out the Great Lakes Championship and 18 Tartan 10s seeking the title of Lake Erie Champion. Both the J/70s and Tartan 10s began their series on Friday, which featured Northwest breezes in the teens and typical Lake Erie waves. Winds started strong again on Saturday morning when all fleets got in on the action, but died off throughout the day. Sunday dawned with light breeze but increased, making for a beautiful day of racing in Cleveland. The Race Committee ran three separate circles and was able to complete up to 11 races on certain courses. The Fleet winners: Tartan 10: Team Iball, Scott Irwin, North Cape Yacht Club (17 points, 11 races) J/22: Mo' Money, Vic Snyder/Kevin Doyle, Youngstown Yacht Club (17 points, 6 races) J/24: Black & Tan, Steve Hronek, EYC (9 points, 6 races) J/70: Team Bayview, Paul Hulsey, Bayview Yacht Club (49 points, 10 races) J/105: it, Jim Sminchak/Doug Moose, LYC (9 points, 6 races) Dragon: The Schmucks, Mike Mahar, Edgewater Yacht Club (17 points, 6 races) Ensign: Jager, Jim Collins, ECA (16 points, 6 races) Jet 14: Na Pame, Dave Michos, EYC (12 points, 8 races) For complete information, visit www.clevelandraceweek.com.

  8. Anybody that is not on the EYC frostbite email list should pm me your email so we don't have to copy/paste emails on this thread.
  9. I've never raced a Hobie 16 and I don't plan on starting now, it's just for fun.
  10. EYC frostbiting will be on this year. CC just sent out an e-mail, she is waiting for the green light from the yard, manager... as for a turkey bowl i would think it can be done at EYC, especialy since we will have crash boats and shit on the ready for the frosbiting. and we should be able to use the frostbiting boats too...
  11. good job CYC for hosting a fun weekend regatta for all to attend (including "r" rated boats that do not normally race at CYC). inclusiveness is the key to keep sailboat racing alive on our great lake erie
  12. Optimist Great LakesReport courtesy Ian Moran Congrats Ian Moran, powered by North DZero6! Congratulations Ian Moran USA 18578! The USODA Great Lakes being held at my home club gave me lots of confidence that I would be able to handle any conditions we would run into over the weekend. With the competition being as good as they were I felt it was really important to get out to a good start. The wind was blowing around 12 to 15 out of the south keeping the waves pretty small. With my North Dzero6 I knew I would be able to point just as high if not higher and go just as fast as my competition. I was able to win the first 4 races. This set me up nicely for the second day. The wind shifted around to the west creating much bigger waves on Sunday. I was leading the first race when I bow plowed on a wave and almost swamped my boat. I was able to recover and finish 2nd. The next race I finished in 3rd place. All I had to do on the last race was stay close to the leaders. I was able to finish in 6th place assuring me of my first USODA regatta win. http://www.onedesign.com/One%20Design%20NA/tabid/23032/Default.aspx?news_id=4573

  14. the Nash Race happened yesterday at EYC. for those that do not know it is a mini-distance persute race, boats of all shapes and sizes participated using phrf ratings. a j22 won followed by 3 T-10's despite there being 2 M32's and some j70's out there. earlier this year the 1st anual Clair Memorial Day Race was held at EYC, same deal mini-distance persute. an Ensign won that race. 43 boats participated there were M32's and J70's in that one too. this does not bode well for the sport boat hating pussies like joli.
