      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.

san diego-ensenada race 2011

just home from ensenada. conditions were really good - wnw 10-22 all day. loreal would have easily been first in but they turned back with what looked like a broken (brand new) sprit. dc was first in. the cheetah 30 smoked us and i think everyone else for overall - i think. we had a nice lead on them a couple hours into the race after zero conditions, but then once the breeze came up and aft, that little fucker skated by us like we were tied to a stump, and other than the 50 footers, we were going by everything else. there was absolutely nothing we could do. as i have said a million times before, off the wind in a little breeze, and especially with a very generous random leg rating of 45, the thing is unbeatable. props to them. we finished at around 8 pm, i would think maybe 2 class, 2 overall but do not know for sure as we did not see the results posted at either hussongs or paris...

that was last night. not one single sailor in paris last night up till about 2 am. i know, that's when y'all showed up....

 

btw, this race is in pathetic shape. 55 boats? it used to regularly draw way over 100. the mexico hysteria is a poor excuse. the reality is that swyc does a terrible job of promoting this race. out of town boats used to come every year, now they do not. we had 3 god damn boats in our class! there is no buzz, nothing new, no real sponsor involvement or co-promotion. this is how races die and this one shouldn't. it is a manageable length - 62 miles - has some challenges, yes it can be light but welcome to so cal. ensenada is a city that has cleaned up it's act to a degree and remains a fun place to hang and party. there were so many boats that turned and burned at the finish that it just makes finishing at ensenada a joke. we hung out at hussongs for a good 2-3 hours friday night and we were the only sailors there! then to paris for 3 hours and it was the same thing - no other sailors. weird and lame.

 

swyc should reach out to us and let us co-promote this event. with you anarchist's input, some new active sponsors and a new event feature or two, there is no reason this race couldn't be made back up to what it once was and even better.

It's not Ensenada or the actual race, I'm sure.

 

It's getting home, a 62 mile motor to SD and no cruising spots along the way...........and a border crossing by car that is worse than any airport security line anywhere in the World.

 

All add up to a long/short race

no doubt, davey. having crossed the border today i can testify that it is a bit of a pain. $100 cab ride to the border, then $5 to get in another van across the border took about 20 mins. then another cab to sdyc...but, there are better ways to do it, although they all involve some effort. and i guess if people don't want the hassle, then they won't go....

I could not believe the lack of Big Rides from up North

 

and only 2 FT-10m's ?????

 

any FT-10m has a chance to win the SD2E - so all should show up

 

Sailing home today or tomorrow would have been about as nice a day as you could spend on the water

 

if so many turned & burned how many raced in the MEX race that follows

 

SA could and Would make it into a Big Deal once again

 

 

Oh and what was the toll while in Paris :rolleyes:

When did the Dana Point-SD feeder race finely die? I recall it started in '92.

The Lil Ensenada Race has a much better record for pressure than the N2E in my experience. The people of Ensenada have been very hospitable and tolerant of a bunch of drunken sailors antics. I'm really bummed we could not make it this year. But, it was a fun weekend out on the water for the Doheny Series.

They didn't break the new pole. The bobstay pulled out of the main hull leaving a nasty hole,actually a chunk out of the bow.

Consider yourself reached out to (not around mind you). I've always thought it'd be a fun followup to the Sportboat regatta with both races counting for an overall trophy. Ensenada really rolls out the red carpet for us and the more interest we can get in the event, the better. It really can be a great race!
