      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. New job has a Seattle based office. I'll be spending some time out here. Looking for opportunities to crew in local PHRF or whatever the local scene is and make connections. I've crewed Stars since college, sailed in 3 Star Worlds. Sailed dinghies in college. Good sailor, not much time on larger boats.
  2. Hi all, this is my first post here. I will be visiting San Diego from 7-13 October and I'm looking for opportunities to crew anything and everything, racing or cruising, makes no difference to me. Background: I am a beginner, have completed ASA 101 course work and water work, and completed ASA 103/104 course work only. I live in a literal desert so my chances to get on the water and continue my learning are almost nil. But I'm eager and learn quickly, and I'm in good physical shape for any strenuous tasks that may come about. Let me know if I can help out, at all. Thanks!
  3. The problem I mean this post to address sits motionless in the background of most discussions that take as their subject an activity that exists in law. The problem has to do with how we read the legal document that gives conveyance of the America’s Cup a place among other like trusts. If we read the Deed of Gift, anticipating the things we say about what we read being tested for legal sufficiency, our discussion of country and the Deed of Gift will begin, and likely, end, with two valid observations: Schuyler says nothing of the makeup of a crew and the history of Cup competition shows yacht clubs exploiting this vacuum. We watch yacht clubs advantage themselves on the water by crewing their nation’s boat from the world’s best sailors. The advantage on the water comes too late to save the feature Schuyler attributes to every Cup competition. Schuyler makes the feature visible in the sentence he writes that we might distinguish from any other regatta a competition he means us to perpetuate: "This Cup is donated upon the condition that it shall be preserved as a perpetual challenge Cup for friendly competition between foreign countries." Writing the sentence where Schuyler does in the Deed shows him introducing to us a competition we would not have known from watching the many regattas yacht clubs hold year after year. Watching annual regattas we have no reason to ask the nationalities of the men we see sail the boat that carries a club’s burgee. But let there be something in it for us and what passes for legal sufficiency gives way to a demand that the sailors be our club mates. If a match is to test the mettle of the Golden Gate Yacht Club then by God our sailors damn well better be members of the Club. That only makes sense. Our club cannot glow in victory or shrink humbly in defeat only to discover we counted on any accomplished sailor to show the world what we are made of. Something very like this discovery comes of giving the introductory paragraph a place in our reading of the Deed. Reading the Deed Schuyler writes for us has us turning to the Deed that we might know exactly what he wants from us. Schuyler says all that need be said if we are to follow him forever. By making the sentence the first thing we read that tells of the competition to come of his work, and by structuring this part of the Deed so as to have the sentence stand as a paragraph, Schuyler leaves no possibility of him suggesting that what he writes here calls for further thought on our part if we are to complete his thinking. We reread the sentence out of its order in the Deed. The further thought we give to Schuyler’s words has us reread the sentence, looking there for mention of what we read in Schuyler’s statement of the licensing or other legal requirements that connect a yacht club with a country. We repeat this exercise when we put the introductory sentence in the context of another subject we read elsewhere in the Deed. The context we create has us make of the sentence Schuyler writes a failed counterpart to the work he succeeds in doing, he demanding that a yacht or vessel be constructed in the country of the competing club. We go looking for the connections Schuyler makes of club and country and yacht and country in the sentence he writes for us to read before he says anything of clubs and yachts. Discovering Schuyler tells us a friendly competition between foreign countries leaves a place for pitting sailors from the same country against each other amounts to discovering we fail to discern an implausibility in our restatement of what Schuyler writes entire and unto itself. The sole means to discovering a thing we say to each other is implausible so long as we persist in saying it is to broaden the conversation. Hear yourself in what others say on the subject. Sailors and aficionados of the America’s Cup treat the absence of any mention of sailors in the Deed as reason enough to say makeup of the crews is no part of a competition between foreign countries. Their casual demeanor when they tell us what they know betrays a fact we know: Sailors and aficionados of the America’s Cup believe what they tell us is unexceptional. They believe what they say fits with how we think country goes in the phrase “… friendly competition between foreign countries.” Broadening the conversation to include us allows for pointing out the phrase takes in much more than the word country. Bringing in competition and taking the time to characterize the sort of competition he means to perpetuate show Schuyler working as well as language allows to say what he wants to accomplish forever. That outcome takes in all of what Schuyler writes. It’s the competition part that gives the lie to thinking a licensed yacht club and sailors from anywhere combine on the water in such a way that a club takes possession of a cup. Taking possession of the America’s Cup calls for a competition that finds us cheering our own as they cross the finish line. We and they are one in a victory for our country’s entrant in the America’s Cup. “The America’s Cup is America’s again!” and then we discover at most one in the crew is American. Or none are. No matter. Do we want to say of this attitude it only makes sense? What does it make sense of? Certainly not winning and losing a competition between foreign countries. We know how that goes. There’s something in it for us. Nothing of what sailors and aficionados of the America’s Cup put in place of what we know has us closer to the subject. Indeed the near centuries old discussion that has been the purview of sailors and aficionados of the America’s Cup shows them losing sight of the competition altogether. They leave nothing in it for us. The purpose of this post is to leave you comfortable saying we know what we are talking about when we speak for ourselves on winning and losing a friendly competition between our country and that of another. We have no idea what sailors and aficionados of the America’s Cup mean to perpetuate when they tell us to watch the world’s best sailors compete in our stead.
  4. I've raced mostly shorthanded offshore over in Europe, mainly in Sweden and Norway and to some extent France and Ireland. Also lived in Sydney for a while and sailed a 49er. I've done a few of the classic European offshore races, including Fastnet. Have lived in NYC a couple of years now and looks like I'll be here for another while so would love to get back out on the water for some racing, the closer to NYC the better, but have a car so up for a bit of travel. Happy in most positions, shorthanded or fully crewed. Have experience from 49er, Mini Transat, Class 40, First 34.7 and others. Let me know if you're looking for crew and let's have a chat! Cheers, Nick
  5. Odd post, apologies! A small group of us will be in Barcelona on Sept 3rd. I'd love to get out for a sail, and see the city from the water. Any chance someone would be willing to connect?
  6. I'm looking to join a boat for this year's Maryland Governor's Cup (Annapolis Leg). Life-long dinghy sailor, ASA 101/03/04 certification, and have skippered (bare-boat charter) a 33" monohaul BUT I have no racing experience. Message me if you could use an extra body. I'd consider other races/events as well--so long as reasonable distance from Bethesda, MD Thanks, Jonathan
  7. OK so congrats - you are good enough at sailing that someone has asked you to come along as a "pro" at a regatta. You're the hired help, and you want to do a good job. You might still be a Cat1, but the owner is paying your T&E and showing you a good time, so you want to be helpful. Whether your job is to help up the programs level, or fill a slot on an existing high-performance team, there are some simple rules you need to live by. I'm f___ing amazed at the number of "pros" I see these days that do not seem to get this. Let's help these misguided dimwits by creating a list of the top 10 rules you need to live by. I'll start with 3: 1. Don't be a douchebag. Pretty simple really. But if you're immediate reaction to every observation you make is "mate, you're doing that all wrong", or you are generally getting in everyone else's business giving unsolicited advice, people are going to get tired of you pretty quickly. Even if you're good at your job, consistently ask yourself - AM I BEING A DOUCHEBAG. Self-awareness is critical. 2. Look around. You are on a beautiful yacht, doing something that the 1% of the 1% of the 1% will NEVER GET TO DO. Smile and pinch yourself chief, it's a f___cking yacht race for heaven's sake and it doesn't get any better than this! 3. Remember what business you are in. You are in the entertainment business. I know you think "the owner hired me on because he really wants to win". I can guarantee you that while that is probably true, after taking a week off from work, spending thousands to travel, get the boat there, and paying for everyone having a good time is a top priority and winning is secondary. A week of fun and a podium is FAR better than a week of misery and a win. A year from now the owner will have long forgotten that your magical jib trim made all the difference, but he'll always remember how nice you were to his son/wife, and that great bar you took him to. The current crop of "pros" seems to have not learned these lessons. Some are good, but many show up in their Volvo Ocean Race gear, treat every event like it's the AC, and have all the f____g answers. Let's set them straight!
  8. Hi, I'm new to this forum. I'm looking for a sailing opportunity/crew position that will take me across the Atlantic Ocean. I have experience, and can contribute $ toward essential expenses (such as food/water fuel etc.) This is my situation, and any constructive input is welcome (key word constructive): I am available starting in May-until Nov. I am currently located in New Orleans, however I am happy to travel to Florida or the Caribbean for the best option when it comes to finding a boat. I've been in contact with some boat owners, and trying to get my ducks in a row, but if I can not get something lined up via the internet and skype interviews, is it smarter to head to the Keys, or is there specific island port in the Caribbean where it's common to find crew positions on boats heading across the Atlantic? Any tips on where I can find a position on someone's boat? I also want to stay respectful and not assume any entitlement in my search for a work-ride. I'm flexible and easy going, but feeling a tad anxious as the months tick away. I don't want to get left behind! That's all. Thanks ya'll.
  9. Hello to all skippers! I am looking for a boat for the Miami to Havana race! I'm a San Francisco Sailor with lots of experience and I'm dead-set on doing this race. I has a boat all set up, but skipper had to cancel. I already bought my plane tickets to Miami, and then from Havana to SF (had worked those details out already with the skipper) so unfortunately I'm in a bit of a bind. Anyways, I'm no pro, but, I am a good sailor with lots of chartering and racing experience. I'm regular foredeck and spin trip on a J88, and have lots of experience on J105s, a Beneteau 41st, Expresses, and various 30ft cruisers. In 2016 I logged about 100 days on the water, including several ocean races. This A-sym spin trim and foredeck are my fortes, followed by jib trim, mast and rail meat. My downwind driving could use some work, but my upwind driving is decent. I'm 5'8 , 155 lbs. If you or any other skippers you know are looking for crew, pretty please let me know! email: kira.maixner@gmail.com
  10. Hello, Minimum Requirements 35yrs and younger, must weigh 180 pounds or less. Ideally this is what I'm looking for. I want someone that already knows how to sail. A College Sailor that is Skilled sailing a Dingy would be great. Sport Boat experience dealing with an asymmetrical sail also helps. Some experience on the Bow and willing to be trained. Is excited about working on the Bow!! Is willing to be dedicated to a Reasonable Race Schedule. I'm not interested in teaching anybody how to sail so if you don't know don't apply. We sail out of Milwaukee Yacht Club and mostly race on Saturdays. We do travel with the Boat and have Raced Key West, Chicago NOOD and J/88 North Americans in New York this fall. Key West 2nd, Chicago NOOD 3rd and not so good in the North Americans. Lots of mistakes! 2017 we will travel to St Pete to do the St Pete NOOD and maybe another race if possible. Colors Regatta, Chicago NOOD. Possibly the 2017 NAs'. 2018 we will start with Key West and work the program north. We sail with our friends and have lot's of fun, while been successful on the race course. We like to goof off a lot too! Please contact Tod tgit10@gmail.com
  11. I am in Melbourne for a week, thinking the best way to spend the weekend would be on the water. Male, 49, reasonably fit. Grew up sailing Bluenose in Nova Scotia, (23" sloop rigged keel boat) Not excited with out of control spinakers but game for it all. contact me at Michael.collins@mining-plus.com or whatsapp +16043665087 Cheers, Mike
  12. So there's a lot of talk about foils, wings and control systems, but an interesting question IMO is how hard will these new boats actually be to sail fast around the course? How equally matched are the crews? Could some teams chose a "safer" design because they're not as skilled or is it more about relevant input from the sailors to the designer to get a well balanced compromise? Any particular sailor who is extra valuable for the design team who cold have a decisive role in the development? How much will specific match race skills help the teams? Lot of questions.....just trying to figure out whether there is a chance for a surprise winner or if all will be determined early on in the project, due to resources or lack there of.
  13. In this article they talk about a very strong italian sailor which has been able to win two 420 Worlds: the incredibile thing is that she won as a crew in 2014 and as helmsman in 2016. Did you know other similar stories? (i remember Enrico Chieffi and Benedetta Di Salle, even if they won Worlds in different classes)... http://www.giornaledellavela.com/news/2016/07/27/timone-o-prua-vinco-lo-stesso-lincredibile-impresa-di-francesca-russo-cirillo/
  14. Hi All, I am flying my dad into the city for this event, and he is a long time sailor and huge fan of AC. It would make his world if we could get him on a boat to look close-up or ideally for a sail. I realize this may be impossible, but just thought i would check. Thanks!

  17. Relocated from the Chesapeake Bay two weeks ago where it was warm and boats were in the water. Dying to get out now! Experience sailing traditional rigs 160-100' as well as modern carbon boats ~90' and love everything in between (formula catamarans, j boats, classics). 100 ton license, background in sail training and performance rigging, know how to communicate and make a good drink. Sailed Hawaii, SF, Caribbean, and East Coast into The Lakes. Game for pretty much anything, any duration. Based in Orland now and moving to Castine soon - wife scored a gig with MMA 27, 165, non-smoker (but won't hold it against you if you are)
  18. Recently moved to Castine Maine and looking to help bring boats north. Didn't get into sailing until after college but I do have my 100 ton license, good amount of traditional rig experience as well as time on high end carbon boats. Born and raised outside of Annapolis, sailed Hawaii, SF, Caribbean, and East Coast into Great Lakes. Just hit 27, non smoker.
  19. Hey fellow sailing lovers! Last year I have been on an expedition, hitchsailing around the Atlantic Ocean, the full circle, crewing on different sailboats. What an adventure! I've seen so many hitchsailors and captains struggling to find their crew/captain match. I've been on both sides: searching for boats and helping captains looking for crew. I also interviewed +40 hitchsailors and +30 captains. And I’ve also seen in how much trouble the ocean is. Now I'm writing a book all about this, to help dreamchasers and the next round of passage makers with tips for the crew/boat search, the journey, and ocean conservation. The book is part of my larger mission to save the ocean. I hope it will create a few more ocean ambassadors. To really make it a good, qualitative, but most importantly meaningful book, I could use support. So I made a video and launched a crowdfunding and now reach out to the community. I hope you like it! Secure your copy now and help to make it happen. Thanks you so much for the support! See you in the harbour some day somewhere. Here's the video & full story: http://bit.ly/hitchsailing-indiegogo Cheers, Suzanne The Oceanpreneur
