      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. That will be interesting to watch, the skipper of the second boat is Andraz. I'd love to have some info on the sail configuration and speeds of both boats. Fair winds ! BTW. On last weeks Geneve-Rolle-Geneve the Saphire 27 of Tobler was competing and did quite well >http://www.ycg.ch/La-Geneve-Rolle_458.html
  2. Windfinder says 2-6 kts until thursday, lets hope for some more wind post some pics ; )
  3. Let's get back on topic, don't feed the trolls. Any news on sail geometry, quotes etc.?
  4. LST, We most certainly did. It was an EPIC experience. I've documented a lot of it here in Cruising Anarchy, you can read the tread here. http://forums.sailin...howtopic=144187 If you have any question, ask away. We want one, badly. Hi jackdaw Nice write-up, makes me drool ; )) Unfortunately the Pogo 12.5 is way out of reach for me, but surely on my list to charter ! Just need to convince my buddies. Did you order one at Structures already ? Last time i talked to them (Dusseldorf fair), it seemed the waiting list is already long. I plan to test sail the Pogo 30 in spring. Fair winds LST
  5. Hi jackdaw have you chartered with fastsailing ? can you share your experience ? we got overhauled by a pogo 12.5 last autumn around Amorgos, we wished to have to been on that boat ! cheers
  6. @ Overserved The roller furler line is attached to a rubber strap / shackle / block (from the side of the cockpit) so you can operate it easily from there. @ oioi send me your preferred email address and i'll be able to send them to you
  7. I too have a bib for the SSC27 and actually have one coming. So you now know how I feel. I think overall total concept and design the 27 is great. I have sailed the J70 and think it is a great little boat and having a one design background i think the 70 fits a great niche for a lot of sailors, although a bit expensive, but better than a M20 and more versatile. But I also think the 70 will struggle in some handicap fleets. 1. SSC27 2. J70 3. B/One What did you think of the 27 in light air? I too have a bib for the SSC27 and actually have one coming.

We had the feeling that TWS could be attained without too much effort upwind.. I was positively surprised how reactiv she felt. Inspite of the broad transom, no feeling of being glued to the water. Downwind thats when the fun starts ; )) I'll tell you more when i have mine in the water.
  8. Well, i'm biased since i drool for the SSC... (and i sailed only the SSC just for a short time in light winds) but still the competition is stiff, B/One could be a winner, when the jury wants to promote an accessible OD, J70 is more expensive, but must be loads of fun, SSC is the most versatile, with maybe the best hull shape for the program IMO. My bet: 1. SSC27 2. J70 3. B/One now you ; )) PS: I don't think there's a ranking, only a winner...
  9. EYOTY Decision will be announced on january 19 .. bets anyone ?
  10. underwater docking for a nuclear submarine? surely is practical for discreet plutonium fuel trafficking. i have such misfortune..caught on here on a 27 feet racing machine..with naughty crew who put me exactly where they want me so badly..on a position no. one to six..a chick handy for all.. exposed to gusts of storm blowing.. have no idea exactly what view they get from cabin out to cockpit ..on an only chick among us you've been taking drugs AGAIN
  11. Hey alsi What did you get number wise ? I would have thought the SSC27 would be a bit worse than the esse 850. Can you share the numpers you put in ? I don't know he mesurements of the sails, so i didn't bother to try to get a SRS Rating. Thanks
  12. sailing is quite addictive ...i guess i'm not the only one
  13. Andraz Thank you for clarifying. Some more questions: Deck layout: i reckon you have installed an easier system for the genoa/staysail sheet (inhauler /outhauler) ? Some pics ? How many were you on board for this race ? Boat weight: Where could you reduce 100 kg ? from the hull, or in the interior equipment ? What will be the final racing weight ? (still with 4 berths and a chemical toilet) ?
  14. Thanks Kristian for this write-up and congrats. Hope we normal pleasure sailors can come close to these speeds... As for the crappy staysail, was the sail in the beginning of your trials OK (from July to October), and then degenerated from heavy use.. or was it a new one (trials with One Sails) that proved to be not optimal ? Fair winds
  15. new video on the website of Voiles et Voiliers (in french). eventually you have to be a "member" to access the vid. so in short the say: nice fast boat, with a huge potential concerning speed, stability, seaworthiness.. but can't comment on the finished product since they sailed the proto (oh really ?), so they commented on the proto; which was more or less empty inside and some other things like water remains in the pit of the motor.. www.voilesetvoiliers.com/essais-et-comparatifs/essai-croisiere-cotiere-rapide-seascape-27-la-fusee-slovene-video/
