      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. There's an article with recent pictures on 'sauver Roque Wave' in Golden Oldies newsletter August 2016. http://www.goldenoldies.biz/NEWSLETTER37.pdf
  2. Good to hear you're still cracking Cosmic Egg jokes, aye. Hmmm...You sure Eric isn't in highest possible spiritual spheres worshipping holy grounds of yet unidentified foiling sailable objects? Hope she sails well, the Frog that is.
  3. You think they should stop making shirts? Oh, not at all….. you're not a gen unless you got a nice shirt on governor are you…….
  4. Try books from Henri de Monfreid if you can get them. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_de_Monfreid
  5. Russell, Couldn't agree more on a serious photo bank for all Newick's boats. My idea with the pictures was to start a website someday with relevant info on the history of each boat. Is the website of your "project Cheers" already in the air?
  6. Raps, No, not sure if the bottom picture is Quicksilver, I've gathered thousands of pictures of the graceful Newick's over the years and wasn't very accurate documenting them in the beginning. Quicksilver is mentioned in several articles in early NEMA newsletters http://www.nemasail.org/news.html#news For the rest I know little about Quicksilver apart from that she was brought to france decades ago and still sails on the the Atlantic side. Last year she was put up for sale but not sure she was sold. This PDF is from GO site, If you want to know more you have to contact GO I guess. Fiche GOM - QUICK SILVER 07-14.pdf
  7. What about a detailed esoteric discussion between gear-heads who can play picking guitars. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TzRv9k_JoYs
  8. All what is known is that CDK is currently completing a full build-optimisation and refit of the yacht. Pics from here: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=1760998817505034&id=1702954373309479 The name of Heerema's sailing team "No Way Back" can be read through the plastic
  9. Reassuring to see Russ and Rob are on speaking terms again and again and again. Why not take the opportunity to make an appointment to go sailing together since you guys have proved for decades now you got so much in common. What else than true love and passion would stand this particular way of communicating. I'm sure it will pay of, Oh and please remember the more than steep learning curve to profit the worldwide proa community. Have fun. Cherio, For Quicksilversuckers:
  10. Wordt ik nou nog afgezeken door mijn eigen landgenoten? Ik weet het. Wij zijn een stuk onbeschaafder dan de engelsen. maar wel lekker direkt. Translation for the English: Am I being pissed of by my fellow country mates? I know; We the dutch are much less civilised then the citicens of the UK. But somewhat direkt. Dirk de Ridder was for the same reason expelled from the Oracle team. (I suspect by BA). Have ever seen his resume? 1998 - Whitbread Round the World Race, 2e 1999 - Tour de France à la Voile, Mumm 36, 1999 - WK, Soling, 1999 - EK, Soling, 2000 - Kieler Zeilweek, Soling 2000 - OS, Soling, 4e 2002 - Volvo Ocean Race, winnaar 2006 - Volvo Ocean Race, 2e 2006 - MedCup, TP52, winnaar 2007 - Hublot Palmavela Trophy, TP52, winnaar 2010 - America's Cup, winnaar compared to; BA Gaat Kessboomuh jaguh man, badeend. You give speaking double Dutch a bad name. Lache.. I am 54 years old and the last time I hunted old christmas trees for the annual christmas tree burning at new year is like 40 years ago. christmass tree burning.jpg Sigh…...
  11. On the contrary, that sounds like perfect conditions for hiring a Pogo 12.50 from FastSailing.gr I watched the film with the sound turned down with woman's hour (BBC radio 4) on in the background as a 4 knot shit box sailor the manly fists raised in the air, the bicep flashing, adrenaline and testosterone was immensely entertaining. It was great (and also pretty funny) to see blokes having ape-man fun. However, once you have hit 25 knots...... then what? D Go for 25.1???

  13. Schakeltje, Schakeltje, schakeltje……….Tsjongejongejongejongejongejongejonge……...
  14. From GO newsletter No.12 2008: After a visit in dec. 2007 Charlie Capelle thought Roque Wave's structure pretty sound although looking very rough and Harald Halvorson is mentioned as owner? who was supposed to bring the boat to France and also ordered a new mast. Nic Barham whom I visited in 2008 when he had the Val Tahiti Belle for sale also told he sailed Roque Wave several times in Dubai and might know more. I might still have his address somewhere.
