      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

  1. Thank you for sharing your photos. 300 metre sand dunes. Wow.
  2. Maggie isn't an "R". She's an XL ...which means she has the "R" hull (including, in this case the open stern from the "R", unusual in an XL), the "R" keel and rig, but she also has the full blown comfortable interior from the 37/40+ cruising version, two staterooms, large heads with separate shower, etc.. ...and some ugly green upholstery. Unless you are Irish, then she's beautiful. C&C went crazy in that period with the names 37/40???what was there a retractable piece? Xl, +, R...sheesh. In the year 1988 the then newest version of the C&C 37 went to market. They called it the C&C 37+ to distinguish it from the previous version of the C&C 37. This new boat was actually had an LOA of 39' 6". Eventually they realized they had mad a mistake calling it a 37 so started marketing it as the C&C 37/40+ There was a stripped down racing version called the C&C 37R with different hull layup with more kevlar, and a taller rig, deeper keel, a stick built interior more suited to racing than cruising. This version was about 1000 lbs lighter than the cruising 37+ Then some customers asked for the R hull layup, rig and keel, but with the 37+ interior. C&C was very accommodating to paying customers so built the boat the customer asked for. so now you have the: C&C 37+ (cruising) C&C 37 R (racing) and the C&C 37 XL which was a combination of the two above. Not so complicated is it?

  4. If you like the look of the Baltic 35, perhaps you should have a look at the C&C 37/40 XL? Maggie is for sale in Berkeley, CA http://www.yachtworld.com/boats/1990/C-%26-C-37-XLplus-2965372/Berkeley/CA/United-States#.WPVzLvnytaQ
  5. Perhaps a little more thread drift? Merry Christmas Kim! ...and to SWMBO too!
  6. I hope not....

  10. Race the Cape 2016! Through Cape Breton's amazing Bras d'Or Lakes and back by popular demand are the coastal/ocean legs to Ingonish! Race the Cape is an event, a sailing regatta, for boaters, their families, and friends that unfolds over a week each July on Cape Breton Island. Race the Cape is seven days of challenging point-to-point sail racing, both inland and coastal ocean, broken into five legs of up to 40 nautical miles through the island’s amazing Bras d’Or Lakes and along Cape Breton Island’s rugged Atlantic coast leading to the Cape Breton Highlands. Race the Cape is an International Sailing Federation – Off Shore Special Regulations (OSR) Category 4 Race, sailed during daylight hours. There are both Spinnaker and Non-Spinnaker Divisions. New to Race the Cape in 2015 was a Cruising Class to include non-competitive cruisers looking to get in on the action. Sailboats and powerboats are welcome to follow along and watch the fierce, but friendly, competition unfold before them while taking in the beauty of the Bras d’Or Lake. The Location: The Bras d’Or is a 450 square mile inland sea; connected to the Atlantic Ocean through natural channels, with deep salt water, virtually no fog, little tide influence, and few navigational hazards. Prevailing July winds are SW at 10 – 15 knots, typically rising to 15 – 20 knots in the afternoons with gusts to 20 to 25 knots as the waters narrow between the long ridges of hills and low mountains (600 to 1000 feet high) that define the channels. An exceptionally windy July day will see gusts to 30 or even 35 knots in these channels. In July, Bras d’Or water temperatures are usually in the 70’s. Check us out! www.racethecape.ca/the-race
  11. Shameless plug. ...and yes, we bought an ad. www.racethecape.com
  12. I wasn't expecting that ^^. Anyone have the story on L'Hydroptère's recent history (of ownership)? July 2nd 2015 - Hydroptere arrived in Honolulu - Hydroptere left Los Angeles on Monday 2nd June 2015 and arrived in Honolulu after a crossing of more than 2215 nautical miles (4102 km).

  15. Yes I saw the "doggie in the window" right away. Probably a reflection of a photo somewhere in the room I'd guess. Great drawing.
