      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. I think that the boat that you are describing is the J11s...http://www.keyyachting.com/j-boats/j11s/
  2. Cleat is just forward of the pushpit next to the kite turning block so doesn't get in the way of anyone
  3. Bolt rope feeder would normally fit in the section of track that you remove to put your main with the slides on. You actually do not need the bolt rope feeder if you have crew to handle the main. Mast man on halyhard and another crew feeding the sail into the groove. One more bit of advice, when you drop the main, roll it, don't flake it. It will last a lot longer.
  4. What boat did you ride on? Good to hear that you are joining the party... When is expected delivery? Should have looked at what hull 35 is/was... Doh!

  6. http://web.me.com/jc...achts/Njos.html Speaking of Corby, my friend has a 36' "Inga from Sweden". http://web.me.com/jc...rom_Sweden.html Stunning boat, with some very nice details/gear: http://www.blur.se/2...-corby-36-gimp/ And with the J/111 we end up pretty much at the same rating. Will be fun! Inga looks like a very sexy lady...
  7. Njos and a J111 looking a lot like each other... Behave... Next you will be saying that she is a better boat!
  8. Well, that seemed to work out ok... He is shot out of a cannon...
  9. Fugly?... When you are doing 12 kts DW and one of these new Kers come past you at 20+ kts crew smiling like cheshire cats, thats when I thought to myself, I'm on the wrong boat!
  10. Awesome recovery. Your bow, mast and pit did a brilliant job and well done for not driving over the kite! oh, and good job the guys in the water weren't wearing life jackets...
  11. So this isn't J Dream (with somewhat iffy crew position...) DDW in 25ish at Dartmouth 2009? The previous downwind they (you...?) did fly the kite, whilst Shiva (or was it VE...?) did the goosewing thing. Despite the exceptional boat handling that J-Dream is rightly known for they lost 10 boatlengths to the 109 that didn't hoist. 2009, ah, yes straight after the Nationals. Can't remember what crew they had on board but it wasn't the regular crew. I wasn't there for one...
  12. The shirts are lovely... May wear mine tommorrow in Gosport... ;-)
  13. Jambalaya, you may have raced against them in the 105. When they got the 109 they changed a few of the crew. Having done their bow for the past 3 years I think I may have observed what sails we had up at the pointy end and I can assure you if we could get a kite up, we would. They may have changed that in the last 6 weeks as I'm now doing a Fastnet 2 handed campaign but I doubt it.
  14. You can hardly call Dartweek a serious regatta, definately not worth blowing a kite for. And for your information, J-Dream would never go to white sail in anything less than 35 kts. They have the crew to handle it and the best helm. I can remember having the A2 up having gusts of over 40 kts and a steady 30 + kts when the boat planed for the whole run at 19 kts going from 6th to 1st... A larger #3 with a lower rating??? How does that work?
  15. Been meaning to ask you how you managed to get your rating down to 1.011? Is this the lowest IRC rated J109?
