      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. S9 have a classic main sheet for a very important fact "security" , When you flying speed is very high so greath deceleration when the bows touches water surface , so a main sheet very backward like the classic one allows you to have a better berth crew at the boat , this avoid being between the bows with the boat pichpool on to you. But S9 rules make mainsheet sistem free .
  2. Its finally official, the first Italian foiling school on catamaran is born , 2 S9 ready at Bracciano lake , near Roma
  3. Sorry mate , but nothing to compare , a full different world , z foils are really unstable . If you have 3-4 days per week to spend on training you can fly almost well but not in strong condition or with wave . So better to be pro or stay at home . But this is only my think .
  4. First test for me on S1A , gusty wind 7-12 , choppy , No jib this session , only soft wing test . https://youtu.be/euvcEn6bl4c
  5. Yes it is A cat legal , about stability I need more test , hope to do it today or tomottow
  6. New S1A. Only a prototipe
  7. Count down , http://www.foilingweek.com/pages/season-2017/garda/fw-s9-regatta/
  8. Charlie , that is a wery good test , 4 S9 , different setup , with or without foils , many data to work on . Thanks
  9. Mika , Im immagin that you know Luca or Elia , can you make a test with both boats ? S9 and Moth !
  10. No no, what you just now wrote is wrong, reality is exactly the opposite, everything started in post 73, with a GBR attack and shortly after also AClassSailor, I as well as wayne and outlaw we have simply answered to Your attacks. The problem here on SA is you Acaters, you do not endure the competition of the other cat, here you talk only about A cat, the other catamarans do not exist, and when come out on the market a new cat better than A cat (in some features) you are immediately ready to attack, as you are doing now with S1 and S9, this your behavior is """ bullying""", I do not accept this, it is socially incorrect. Please. Stay out of forums that are still healthy and not polluted like this.
  11. You insist on accusing me of your faults, you write words and concepts without any real data , you're a man of air, I and somebody here are tired of losing time. Please stay out of this forum, also in future.
  12. 1: The evolution of S9 was also been published here on SA so it is easy to prove it , instead you always use only words without facts and give it to support what you write with insistence. 2: Some things like T rudders are very old, but I have always believed that T rudders were better than the L rudders used on A cat, so why did A cat "last generation" adopt T rudders now ? This is a symptom of "confusion", nothing to be compared with the firmness of the ideas and choices made on the S9 S1. -What is this ? A cat forum number 9145 ? or S1 forum? So it's obvious that "you " are the person that trying to throw shit, you forgot to read the bottom line "" my 2 cents, my view "", so I can not express my opinion in this forum that is Dedicated to a my cat project. ?????? Who are you ACat Sailor ???? A god down to earth to command? Please stay away from this forum, your "polluting" actions are not useful to anyone.
  13. About A cat class: - I can not see this class as the best development class, the rules are few and create a lot of confusion, - I do not see technological innovations, 4 foils down sistem S9 was the first to do this as well as T rudders and short rig, - sweepdeck its 40 years old - platforms are difficult and expensive to repair, they do not disassemble, do not have the ability to easily accommodate upgrades. only 2 cent , my wiev
  14. I do not believe that onedesign boats can become obsolete, because there will always be a rule in the class statute to prevent obsolescence, Indeed, "" I think the future of development classes is just the onedesign "", analyzing S1 and S9 class: - These boats are built with a very high degree of technology and materials, --- -Shapes hulls and foils are already futuristic and not old-fashioned. -The boats are designed and built to easy accommodate upgrades. - onedesigm class rules are based on strict rules, but with the ability to make changes for the development. - the onedesign rules serve to prevent obsolescence and depreciation of used boats.
  15. A report from A cat member . http://www.catsailingnews.com/2017/05/rutland-catamaran-open-2017-images-by.html?m=1#more
