      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. Je crois que tu es français ,aussi je t'épargne mon piètre anglais . Peux tu m'expliquer ce que tu dis sur l'hydro et les valves? Merci!
  2. Totally agree...add to this a bunch of stupid trolls , chauvinists and ignorant ,and you have the complete story . These guys are armchair "sailors" ! Any sailor hanging out here is arm chairing. I have to admit that ,in a sense ,you are right....shame on me!

  4. And good luck to the Arab team, asshole. I hope you die of cancer soon. I have a cancer. Don't wish it to anybody . it's stupid . I hope you'll never catch it ,it's too much pain . Think twice before talking .
  5. Dunno about this very boat but IME most racing boats can go upwind under jib alone as long as you don't pinch and keep the speed up. Bien dit!
  6. OK ,i'm sitting in my armchair . But two remarks : first ,the helmsman did a great mistake ,putting the tiller hard down : they are heaving ,no speed and waves on the side . He had to maintain some speed at all costs . Second : with just a small jib ,two guys can control it directly ,and maintain some speed and maneuvrability . That's said ,i was not in the boat...I'm glad they're fine .
  7. C'mon ,folks! It's a hoax , it's the first of April! But i admit it could be a damn good idea...
  8. Yes the designer is Chevalier . It's a design made to illustrate the paper ,not to submit for build ..
  9. 3 desings competing: VPLP, Finot-Conq + Sam Manuard, and Mer Forte (never heard). Mer forte is an engineering and racing projects company managed by Michel Desjoyaux
  10. Hello please apologize for my poor english . I used to sail on a Carter 37 built in Greece ,formerly Pen ar Vir owned by french industrialist Pierre Bonnet . A friend of mine ,Jean Alain Goenvec ,bought it in 1977 (?) ,and renamed it Linuen . Our first cruise was on Galician coast in Spain .Linuen did many races with good success in Brittany with a Proctor mast strong enough to support the Empire State Buiding and Hood sails . Then Linuen departed for Marseille ,and started a new life doing a lot of Med regattas ,and especially La Nioulargue (now Les Voiles de St Tropez) which she won at least two times in her class . She was turboed with a taller three spreaders mast , larger chutes and so on...During summer ,Linuen did cruise extensively : modern amenities were not onboard (no oven ,no cabins ,no shower..) but it was a fantastic boat to helm and sail ,nursing the winches farm...It was always a pleasure to be quicker and more close to the wind than larger cruising boats and to enjoy this marvelous balance on the helm and the ability to be close hauled going windward in a decent breeze . The Carter 37 was THE perfect boat to race (Giraglia ,Croisiere Bleue..) and after the arrival ,start a small cruise with a bunch of friends and children . She was sold 6 or 7 years ago ,and i suppose she's still in Med . I'll post pictures when i find it . Thank you for all your contributions to this thread , and best regards for Catherine Carter!
  11. Please explain…my english is poor ,and i'm not sure to understand .
  12. Well ,i'm a bit old now for this game..local races with a crew ,fast cruising during holidays ,and offer the boat for rent for singlehanded races ,that's the program .
  13. I,ll sign the design contract this week during the Nautic ,the boats exhibition in paris . I intend to sign the contract for building with a shipyard in Thailand .
  14. Please accept my apologies .We are bothering everybody ,and i'm sincerely sorry to behave like a bad ass . We both love sailing ,that's the main point . Just let me add something : not everybody during the Vendee breaks the first night…but ,tell me ,why you Aussies are not interested by solo racing ? I'll be in Sydney next year ,and i hope you'll accept a beer with me . I bet on Comanche ,because i just bought a VPLP design Class 40 .
