      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. Any Stiletto 23/27 owners out there? I sailed on one during the 80's but don't recall how big the berths are. I've seen them on the market and think they might be a good daysailer / over-night camper. Anyone know the dimensions? Or even better, have any good photos of the interior of the hulls? Thanks!
  2. Ride Height Set the ride height adjusters to 3 mm as measured between the top of the white edge of the foil and the bottom of the black trailing edge of the foil when the wand is straight down. Tighten the ride height nut fully, then undo the nut one quarter turn (just enough that you can adjust your ride height). Foil Rake For racing, setting the foils asymmetrically is optimal (say 2.5 windward, 3.5 leeward), but when first learning to foil set them the same bilaterally. Interestingly, it is necessary to set the foils with a higher rake for fresh water than for seawater due to the lower density of fresh water. For seawater, learn to foil at first with the foil rake set at 3 bilaterally; For fresh water, 4 bilaterally. Running with an Even Keel “The most important thing is the boat must be flat to foil.” Like a plane taking off, the wings will provide the most lift when parallel to the surface. Twin Trapeze Having both captain and crew out on the trapeze is the easiest way to foil. The crew uses the main sheet to maintain their stance on the hull while the captain uses the traveler (but do not uncleat the traveler). Beam Reach While you are on a beam reach going near your max speed, let the mainsail out slightly and you should start to foil. Avoiding Windward Capsize Once you start to foil, it is likely the mast will tip windward. When this happens, do not point more into the wind as you will luff and lose power in the mainsail. When foiling, your speed will increase and the apparent wind will shift forward. Sheeting in the main should apply more force leeward and avoid capsize.
  3. My old friend Marcel wrote me this morning, suggesting the Anarchists might be able to help - and make some bank. Hey Clean, I’m not sure if you are aware of it, however there is quite a few catamarans being stolen in the Med at the moment. It appears that charter parties are paying to charter the yachts and then simply not returning them. We’ve had 3 in the last week alone, and there is obviously quite a few upset owners with the image of chartering being tainted. Could you use the power of our community to keep their eyes peeled for these yachts? Your ‘what is it?’s seem to get to the solution in a matter of seconds! There is serious reward money available - 'negotiate reward first' is the suggestion on the 'lost and found' pages, but it can't hurt to look around your marina or out your office window to see if there are some newish 50-foot charter cats laying about, can it? Post info in this thread if you like. Here are two stolen boats - a Fontaine-Pajot 50 and a Lagoon 52 - to get started with! http://www.stolenboats.info/eng/stolen_vessel/23016/ http://www.stolenboats.info/eng/stolen_vessel/23020/
  4. Sea trials were supposed to take place this past July, no news from the company. Any insight out there?
  5. Greetings! First post on Sailing Anarchy. I have absolutely no experience foiling and would appreciate tapping into the collective wisdom/experience of this forum. I'd like to see if I have a good grasp of crew weight placement on a foiling catamaran. Hoping to receive my White Formula Whisper next week. Props to Martin and Charlie P. Mayer for their very helpful videos.

  6. Emma Hamilton, one of the older C Class Cats in the UK is up for auction on EBay, bet it will go for not a lot. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/C-CLASS-CATAMARAN-/201861781010?hash=item2effe65612:g:VWMAAOSw32lYwmv6
  7. Help! We are racing a Simpson 48 catamaran (13.7 m (44.936’)) that has been modified with 3' ama extensions aka sugar scoops. This boat is new to the owner and racing. It doesn’t have an established rating, short of a provisional PHRF 141.0 rating from the recent Fort Lauderdale to Key West race, in which it won the multihull division. In the name of fairness, transparency and the spirit of competition, we are looking for a sister ship with a racing history or documented rating. The boat was designed by Roger Simpson and I would suggest there may be a few racing in either Australia or New Zealand. I have researched race results and I contacted half a dozen multihull clubs in both countries with no luck so far. If anyone can post a link to this thread with a rating for a 13.7 Simpson with or without the sugar scoops or direct me to a sister ship that has a race record or result, I would be very grateful. Time is of essence, since the rating of this boat is to be ‘penciled in’ this coming Friday in preparation for the Miami to Havana race.
  8. Upcoming race in the Chesapeake! Interest is growing within our own West River Cat sailing community. Boats verbally committed so far: 7 (N20s, F18s, & F16s) If you want to travel into West River, we usually can provide a place to launch from and return. Just give us some notice. There is usually someone providing ground transport of bag and a few wheels to oxford and back. Accommodations in Oxford are yours to determine.

  10. Hi, I'm sailing for a bit more than a year a F18 catamaran, and learned a lot in this time. However, I'm working on my boat speed and now I'm stuck between following 2 devices (which are already maxing out my budget). 1.) Velocitek SpeedPuck 2.) Garmin Quatix Main purpose is to have an accurate GPS speed-log on my catamaran, and probably analyzing the sailing session afterwards. I like the Speedpuck because it is very simple, durable, have huge digits so it is always visible while sailing, and also the wind shift function is interesting. On the other hand, its function seems very limited beside this compared to other devices. I like the Garmin Quatix Watch as it have besides the speed log features a compass, gps maps, and especially the race timer in combination with GPS sounds exciting. But I heard, the interface is a mess and your race might be over until your find your desired function. Has anyone experience with (both of) these devices. Which functions are really handy, which you anyway don't use? I'm kind of stuck with my decision, as both devices are quite different and have their drawbacks and advantages. I'm thankful for any shared experiences or advices. Cheers.
  11. . ...an A-cat kit or planset? any details?
  12. ...just like to share two short, interesting essays written by the author Michael Kingdom-Hocking about the HISTORY OF MULTIHULLS. Such historical reviews give me a good feeling about where we are today. It's a more easy understanding about the boat constructions we see nowadays floating around as the modern constructions mostly are a following up (not in the sense of a revolution but as an evolution) on the basis our sailing ancestors created as pioneers. Sailing Catamarans & Trimarans (part 1 of 2)... As we saw in Sailing Boats Through the Ages, the big problem with sailing boats is that they operate on the boundary between air and water, using the water to support the weight and the wind (movement of the air relative to the water) to provide the motive power...
