      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. Nothing like constantly getting fucked over by j70s and other slow turds. Who ever decided to put those pigs on the same course as the i14s bumped theit heads. If you were one the ass holes screaming at us, just want you to know that you are an ass clown and would love to see your old out of shape ass even attempt to sail in a straight line on a 14.

  3. Polish, can we use this as a quote? "Sail 14's, don't be a chump!" Of course!
  4. What an amazing start to what should be one of the most competitive seasons I have sailed in. Seriously, the i14 is simply the best small boat out there. I have been fortunate enough to sail in many different classes, including other skiff classes, and nothing compares to it. Between the most technologically advanced bad ass boats and the group of very talented, easy to get along with, eccentric, smart guys who party harder then anyone else, you would be dumb not to. Not to mention the best regatta put on by the legandery Andy Bates and Clarkie and the whole Kaneohe Yacht Club. Don't be a chump, next event is in two years
  5. Eh, I cant say completely with out any failures... I had to cut a rather large access hole to fix a crush zone half way through the event. I built the seat at the pacific ave boat shop under the watchful eye of del, but kinda missed where I put the 11oz DB for said crush zone.... whoops.
  6. That boat is so metal! I like it
  7. Wildt, yes, your right, I am just trolling. Unlike your buddy though, and I'm just assuming here, I actually can back up my ass hattery. I do have a wc title and I have sailed a 45 at least 20 days. I have also sailed the fcs a bunch in Oyster bay. Thanks for the offer though, nothings better then ripping a round on foils. I grew up racing skiffs, so my attitude is send it.
  8. Racks are for pussies. Yeah, especially if you're going to foil sail this beast to Alaska, living in a drysuit, trying to stay out of the 40 and 50 degree water. Who wouldn't want to sit in a trapeze harness for 700 miles non-stop instead? Or better yet, have you? I'm sorry,and how many times have you sailed a foiling catamaran? Or how about something with a trapeze? Or how about something that doesn't have a chunk of lead stuck to it? Post your experience and maybe I'll post mine. Better yet, post a pic of your girlfriends tits, since I'm pretty sure your double trap beachcat distance race experience is nill.Mmm. Of course. Your right, but what is your experience foiling a catamaran? I really hope you realize that sailing a hobie 18 from the 80s is a lot different from an fcs. Or would you like to continue this pissing contest? How many world titles do you hold? How many ac45s have you sailed? I hate to say it, but this foiling cat thing is a young man sport. So keep your racks to your hobie, grab another beer, and go sailing.

  11. wow! lookin good! doesnt look super drastic difference but the jib does look bigger!
  12. Any teaser pics of the new rags??
  13. first canoe to sail out of Santa Cruz in over 10 years. with a little over 6 months to go, sounds like there is to much talk of this and that, its time to go sailing.
  14. While the international teams sat at pier 80 trying on helmets a few of us at AYSF got to go send it on a 45 out the gate
  15. Stingray, its going to be a huge commitment for the team. We all feel strongly about this, and we are going to be training everyday if possible, whether its physical training or sailing or both. You only get this opportunity once, and no matter what people may say, sailing for us is our life, and we all want to do our best. cheers Mikey Radziejowski AYSF
