    Tips For Being Rescued

    You took the main down then the helo messed it up, THEN you took it down (somehow, again?) And were gonna sail with it though it was messed up? Something about this sequence doesn't add up.

    Aw nice! This is a wonderful club - have raced and cruised here before and love the place. Nice to see them going the extra mile

    Your Club or area of sailing

    That moonrise is pretty amazing! Not a photo *of* my club so much as *from* it, but this is my home harbor during a rather remarkable sunset - with our north dock and mooringfield. Northport YC on Long Island.

    Thanks! One of our club's Ideal 18s.

    I also hate this pose. It always ends up looking like a bunch of prep school kids trying to look tough in front of dad's land rover. (Anyone remember the Icy Hot Stuntaz from the early days of the internets?) More importantly, though, what's with the OA forcing the kids to pose like this (or any other pose for that matter)? Weird micromanagement and it's unfair to them if this isn't how they want to appear.

    Here I am doing some sailing, or at least what we call sailing in Long Island Sound.

    In, with a J/70. Guessing we'll be getting wet.

    I think you can eliminate most or all of those. Based on the story, it sounds like this person may live in Europe, given the escape through the tunnel to France. In any case, I would encourage everyone not to toss names out here without knowing who it really is - there is one photographer who's a stalker nutcase and many more who have worked their tails off to build a fragile niche business and could lose it all thanks to an erroneous and speculative accusation by the internet court of public opinion. We can hope Lia will eventually name her tormenter but it isn't for us to post names in here and potentially ruin innocent people's businesses.

    It would also allow the rest of us to avoid the F out this person. She said most of us probably follow him - he deserves to lose his following, his credibility and business. I am sure this is a delicate thing for her and she has reasons she didn't say anything, but if she does decide to when she is comfortable, it would be a net positive, I think.

    Terrifying. And yet, not entirely surprising. There are some serious creeps out there. She's amazing for coming through that and accomplishing amazing things in spite of it. RESPECT.

    SDYC DAGO Hot Rum Series 2018, temps about 80 degrees

    I'll be there for the 3rd installment... woohoo! Enjoying the similarly balmy weather in long beach for now.

    No more "Members Only" at my Club.

    I got shot at just for showing up in an anarchy shirt!

    Racy looking sloop with round hatch in foredeck?

    It is my understanding that many were sent out of the factory in various states of unfinished, including possibly missing a stringer up forward. Some were returned to the factory for repair - those are the ones to look for. There are two on Long Island Sound that do quite well, one of which has been well sailed for many years and taken home a slew of trophies. I've sailed on both and I think they're great - comfortable to sail on, ride nicely in chop, and hold their own in both PHRF and IRC. They're also one of the few "racer cruiser" type designs that I think really serves both purposes well.

    i touch myself

    Not that you'd think to cast aspersions on your bowman for going home with her or anything... *eyeroll* That said, I don't understand the fuss over bowgirl vs bowwoman. Insay bowgirl because saying bowwoman is cumbersome and odd. What's shameful about girls? Meh. Mind you, the problem we are discussing here is not folks who get wrapped up in linguistic choices but folks who think it's ok to treat women a certain way. It isn't the issue at hand, but implying something about a female because she had a consensual encounter with a male (and having nothing to say about that male) really probably falls into that list of things men should stop doing if they want more women to sail.

    "How is he, or anyone supposed to know what is right or wrong if there isn't immediate and clear feedback in response to their behavior." You can't be serious, right? No no no, it is not our job to "educate" shitbags that grabbing on us is wrong. By the time a male has reached adulthood, any number of forces from parents to societal norms in general should have imbued that male with a general clue as to right and wrong. We are not talking about toddlers here, these are grown men and by that age, and it's on them to know, not us to touch. "We're all accountable for our own behavior, both guys and gals." Yes, exactly, in direct contradiction to the absurd assertion that women are somehow responsible for educating men about what to grab vs not grab, it's on each of us to arrive at adulthood 1. Knowing what's ok and 2. Having enough situational awareness to figure out when lines are being crossed by our own behaviour.
