      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. Any predictions on how far east he gets before getting spit back out?!?!
  2. Ya - I will bet the boys at S. Francis would be pretty stoked to have him come in for a beer....... (in his blazer and ascot of course).....
  3. no, he's still too far away. he will be lucky if he passes that by sunset. Whoops - my mistake... I changed the view on the Farallones cam but I think it is a static pic (not live feed) like the SF cams....
  4. I just changed views and I think we can see him!
  5. In the very first pic of Cofica (post 547 - by IanW) it would appear that they are sailing with both running backs on?!?! One is slightly eased compared to the other.... Can anyone explain this (or why they are doing this) to me.... Just wondering if I am missing some kind of old school trimming "trick"....
  6. See cms' post # 310 Was looking for more in addition to the 83 stuff. (85?) But thanks for pointing me back - I did miss it!
  7. Hey cms.... GREAT POSTS!!! Any chance you have the French entries as well (83/85)?
  8. There is a bow-gal in our fleet that has lost two teeth (on two different occasions) to spinnaker poles.... She just heads off to the dentist to get them put back together, and she looks as good as new! Tough as nails!
  9. My "spider sense" tells me NOT to zoom in on this one...... lol
  10. Whoops... My mistake. I misread the above attachment.... The text in the attachment makes reference to the 84 One Ton Cup - not AC. It mentions that there was 2 boats named Fair Lady and Faire Lady. Both Beneteau IOR One Tons. Also mentions that there were 2 more boats, both named Coyote?!?! And both of these were also Beneteau IOR One Tons. Does any of our European buddies know the details or the histories of these? I guess my understanding at this point is that there are two 1984 versions and two 1985 versions. One of each are still in Europe and one of each were sent to North America. Anyone know what the differences are and which were sent over to NA?? Also if names were changed, too what?? I love to hear the history of these boat, and I am sure you can guess why.... Also FYI - one of these are for sail in the SA classifieds (Godspeed) for a pretty reasonable price!
  11. is there a page for the American team in that program? Would love to see that if possible. On the off chance that you are taking requests, would you happen to have the 84 version of the French/France page?!?! Thanks in advance!!
  12. I have heard conflicting statements that this boat (Fair Lady / Fiere Lady) went on to become MOONRAKER....? Any info? Lettering and paint looks the same in this brochure...
  13. RE COYOTE There must be a sister ship in Europe. We go past COYOTE every Friday here in Hawaii at the Ali Wai Fuel Dock. There is no black on it though?!?! My understanding is that she came straight from San Francisco to Hawaii. Third attachment is racing in San Francisco..... Forth shot is very recent in Hawaii..... cheers!
  14. MOONRAKER in Larry's photo - Beneteau One Ton IOR My understanding of the history of this boat.... (please correct, or add) Designer: Barret/Fauraux/Finot Builder: Beneteau France 1984 12 were built and several were raced (quite successfully) by France in the (84?) Admiral's Cup. Half of them were packed up and shipped to the US to kickstart Beneteau's entry into racing markets in North America. 1) Fair Lady was sent to Detroit where its name was changed to Moonraker. She was fairly prominent in the Detroit fleet. She was recently sold and is now racing in San Diego. 2) Coyote was sent to San Francisco and she was also quite visible in the San Francisco racing scene (B. Trouble?!?). Now located in Hawaii... 3) Advantage was sent to Detroit/Chicago. Was less successful than Moonraker 4) Air Mail sent to Chesapeake B. were she is still raced today 5) God Speed (possibly this boat formerly had name Glory?!?!) now located in Texas (and is currently listed in the SA Classifieds) Any more info on these boats would be much appreciated!!
