      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. Hey I still sail the boat! The last few regattas have been on conflicted dates with some other programs I sail on. I am planning on both Kansas events and then I really hope to be back in NC for the two winter events. The 20 is a great boat and is still probably my favorite of the 20'er sport boats. Yes the #'s are down but the boat and the people in the boat are awesome and that is why I continue to go back! Cheers
  2. Scaly wag is the 5th according to their FB page
  3. Preds in 5 Sens in 6 And the comment about Mrs. Crosby's mustache was pure poetry
  4. Perry is the second dirtiest player in the league behind Crosby.
  5. I tried to talk Hen into jib only from the get go but pussed out The Soca guys in PUR went to a flat top main with jibs only and it worked OK as long the breeze was up but I think that was for two reasons. 1) the flat top could be much more aggressive in width and they tried to use their normal #3 as the sail. I think with a bigger flat top and a proper Code 1 jib it might be OK.
  6. I know that Sprint 6 had the full monty with incline and all. It was great racing yes Beasley sails the shit out that boat. He has a gear that neither us or Hall Pass have at this point. Great group in the class from those that we met and it was quite diverse. I hope they keep this fleet for next year and keep it inside. I can't believe that the SR PHRF rating is correct? We own #3 and have two others here in town and with masthead kites and a 3 sec, main roach penalty we race 69. I believe base rating is 75.
  7. Mike I just picked them cause I hate Zach and Ryan for choosing them over the wings Seriously just don't think they are that good. Was in 6 Sens in 5 Edm in 6 Nas in 7, hard to pick against a team that made the Hawks look like an ECHL team.
  8. missed one.MON or NYR? Ah yes I did Mon in 4
  9. CHI in 5 STL in 7 CAL in 7 EDM in 6 BOS in 5 WAS in 5 COL in 5
  10. Contact Philip @ Barefoot yachts.
  11. Match racing Farr 40's a few years back in Chicago, we round the leeward mark and it turns into a shit show. Spin comes back into the around both sides of the jib sheet, gets sucked into the jib block. About the the big name tactician starts in on the jib trimmer about getting him a jib trimmed so we can go upwind and there is really nothing the dude can do. So said jib trimmer looks back forward and says to the bow and mast dudes, "come on guys you are fucking me to tears back here" The whole boat just lost it.
  12. Visit doyleboston.com or call (519)344-5236. They are a family-owned loft in Sarnia, Ont just down the street from where the boat was built. Talk to Spike Boston who has been around, well, forever. I haven't been there in a while and don't know if Bill Abbot is still around (they had a pretty devastating fire about 10yrs ago) but my memory is that he built a very nice boat and they sailed pretty well. Abbot used to build Solings and I'm pretty sure he is a former World champ (or NA). Sucks about the fire but thank you for all the information. I will do some more digging Billy and Larry are still around out there, they are not building boats but have a store front and a one bay repair space and a wood shop set up in an old portable school building. I am sure either of them would be happy to chat with you about the boats. 519-542-2771. We more then likely built the original sails for the boat here at our loft, mentioned above. Any idea what hull # the boat is? Abbott's also have 1 or 2 used 22's that they refitted out there for sale as well. But the one near you is a good deal I think with the trailer. Cheers Tac Boston
  13. Much like Wang I cannot say enough good things about this boat. We did the Chi-Mac race and had an absolute blast! It was our first go at sailing the boat in big breeze and big waves and while it was WET, we learned a lot about what to do to make it drier. We also sailed way to conservatively in the first squall as we really did not know how the boat would react. In the future we would be much less that way and send it a lot harder. Our team owner just can't take 10 days away from the office and his family to sail either Key West or Block Island so we are going to focus on the 3 day events like Annapolis NOOD, NYYC Annual, Verve Cup, Big Boat and the Long Beach event that are on the class schedule. As a team we are all really excited and can't wait to get the Girl on the water again. We know we have a lot of catching up to do time in the boat wise but we relish the challenge. Catching up to DC and Wang will be a tough effort but we will her a go. I hope that as a class we have a serious chat about week long events and maybe a more coordinated Caribbean effort next winter!
  14. Pretty good boats, sail well. Lots of room for its size. Seems like a good deal with the trailer.
