      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.

Blixem doesn't need or want to be in the limelight. They decided to come down and play in the Vipers after a particularly fine couple of bottles of red wine at lunch at Rubys Oyster House in Rye. Its a break from the grand prix stuff in the Melges 32. Its for fun. They are jumping into a chartered boat with borrowed sails. They'll do well because they are good sailors, but taking life too seriously at the expense of Goslings is not on the agenda.

 

Favorites will include

 

Jackpot - Lee, Eric and Brad, fresh from winning NAs and Bacardi Race Week

Tac Boston - Watch brotherly luv go out the window Brad! Tac is a multi NA champion in various and world champ in Sonars

David Guggenheim, Mark G and Ethan Bixby - Winners at CRW last year. Ethan is multi 5-0-5 champion. Ethan and David are FAST.

Justin Scott, Ben Ainslie and Scott West - Membership of RTYC (sponsor of Team Origin) has its privileges.

Dave Nickeson + Moise Solomon - Very fast in every tier one regatta last summer, + they've got full support from Evolution at this regatta

Phil Lotz, Wendy and Rodriguez - Here for some lighthearted racing, but smokin talent.

Cate and Rick Jarchow on the new Team Rattler - These guys are pros who have come to play. Watch out!

Rob Gorman Jr - Soon as he gets used to a carbon stick, he will be up there. A top jnr sailor who was rattling a few cages with an old aluminum mast at the last couple of regattas and now has a carbon stick.

 

 

wink.gif Just kidding about my crew. Wrong Ben. Caught your attention though.

Now THAT would be a story. And a correction: Of the Boston brothers, only Tac is a World Champ, also in the Sonar. Rattler will get smoked though I can't wait to see Cate, and Bliksem is all-fun off the water but I would not be surprised IN THE LEAST if they go and win this one. That crew is scary, and when they get to the line there are few more obsessively competitive than Piet. I say your top 4 up there are solid, though put Bliksem in there with Jackpot, yourself, and Guggs for the top four spots. I'd say Bliksem to win but not without someone that knows the harbor, and I'd pick you if you had Ainslie...so let's just give this one to my pals on the Jackpot, then Bliksem, then Scott, then Guggs but with less than five points between the top four boats. Make it happen!

Darn it that sounds like fun.

 

On a different note, I'll be at the regatta site Friday and Saturday (Have to fly out Sunday). If anyone needs a filler for either day, drop me a line. Cat 1, Exp in everything from Lasers to M32s (Ramrod) to Tp 52s. I prefer back-up foreguy cleater, but I'll take anything to get out on the water in C-Town.

Give 'em a chance, I'm not sailing! :lol:

 

Sorry I'm going to miss it, but I'm crazy busy, April is the #1 month for Flexofold, plus I have the Strictly Sail Pacific show next week. :( At least I'll get to harass Schoonerman!

Did not know that Cate and Rick had married, good luck to them! And as for the comment on pros, is that short for prostitutes?

I only have adequate knowledge to place bets in two classes

 

IRC - Vincitore

J/105 - Eclipse

 

If Pugwash was still entered I would peg them for IRC but I guess that they pulled out.

FYI: I got a rather good recommendation from friend "in the know" that a good to great band is playing at the Dog House Saturday night. They are out of the New Orleans area and are on an East Coast swing.

 

They play and record with Sam Bush if that gives you any kind indication of the music type: New Grass, Rock, Reggae, Originals and Cover...

If you don't win thea hack 6 boat class dump the boat on 95 on the way back.

GO THE BOBBLING!

Agreed. Blixem came here to play but when the Prep signal sounds and Pieter's pulse quickens, they are going to be competing. They are the best in the world in one of the most competitive classes in the world so despite lack of time in boat and plenty of time with rum in hand, they will be right there. After practise yesterday, Pieter's first remark? "Fantastic boats. " So I figure they are up to speed.

 

Jackpot - (Brad Boston, Lee Shuckrow, Eric W)

Black mamba - Guggenheim + Bixby + Mark,

Blixem.

Arethusa - Phil & Wendy Lotz + Rodrigez

 

Them there are going to be a lot of folks flirting with the top 5. Never , ever rule out 3 Grins Nickerson/Solomon. Ben and I will be trying for it. Tac will surely be there. Paul Young was rigging the Rondar "works" boat this morning, so if he is driving there is another front runnner right there. Rob Gorman jr has won a lot of Viper races. I also predict there will be at least one suprise dark horse from all the newcomers.

 

Let's get it on!

Looks like I was right in my bet for the IRC division. I tied for right with the 105's.

 

Good going Arethusa!

I am dropping these at the bottom of all of the links cause I am too tired to see if Anybody put this out so I have no idea if anybody knew they had offshore coverage available all week. I never saw any link on the CRW front page and there are so many links on the yachtscoring page, I don't know if anyone really listened...or cared.
