      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. KW may work as a biennial event instead of every year. Even the best of things can get worn-out doing it every year.
  2. Henderson 30?
  3. We did the race in 1972 on a new Santana 22 a friend of my dad's bought. We got to know the cutter Cape Corwin(?) quite well as we were Tail-End-Charlie all 3 days. Saw my first kite blow-out on a Cal 33 as they were coming up overtaking us out of Kaneohe Bay, red & white cross-cut zipped right across the middle, the tapes holding it together. That was a long 3 days...
  4. If Langley can get where he starts consistently on the front row, watch out. I watched them from time-to-time and that boat was the fastest one out there, looking good against the JV boats in the breeze today. Q looked like they were in good shape at the start but looked slow going up the leg, hanging even somewhat with Platoon for a while until Alegre(?) pinched out ahead of them and forced them out. Interesting that they said TH was starting and driving quite a bit, wonder what's up about that? I think the 3-boat program is paying dividends even if it is taking it from Q's pocket.
  5. You can look on Google Earth and see the boat, it is on the south west side just below the airport. Numerous pics around her, the boat is slowly falling apart with one ama already separated from the main hull.
  6. Really good racing today with the live feed, the Gladiator boat is fast when they get it going in the right direction, two bullets overall for the repaired boat. Platoon keep hanging in there holding the lead without a race win.
  7. Also looks like they have Jenny Tulloch doing the on-the-water commentary. Should be 100% live stream tomorrow.
  8. They show live views when the boats are within range, then VE when down the coast. Should be all live W/L from tomorrow on.
  9. You can follow the live tracker with commentary until Thursday when the live video stream begins.
  10. ^^ Starts Thursday, that has been the practice since last year.
  11. Until Tetley sank. At the speeds he was reporting he would have had the fastest time, therefor his logs would have been scoured for verification. He figured if he slid in behind Tetley then nobody would have bothered and he would have been off the hook.
  12. ^^ 2nd, after Key West. The boat sailed as Interlodge in KW and then KO'd as Gladiator in Miami.
  13. Read the book years ago as a teen and have the dvd of Deep Water now. Crowhurst had the big dreams that many have and due to circumstances along with the excitement from Chichester's voyage was able to get someone to back him. With his business fading he was throwing a Hail Mary for not only fame and fortune but to use his equipment for promotion afterward. Apparently he was able to present himself as knowledgeable and with his equipment a forward looking mariner. At that time he was able to pull it off since there was not much out there for anyone to check his claims over. Having the issues early on with equipment that was not ready/tested/operational and then a boat that being rushed together starting to break just overwhelmed the dream real quick. His contract with his sponsor had him backed into a corner that he could not get out of without losing everything, which is what happened anyway. A sad story that with more time/experience might have worked.
  14. Gladiator black is on the water and sailing today. Heck of a job by that team.
