      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.

The City Island Cup??? Is that a Golf Tourney?

Well if the present City Is YC reps and the Commadore stay in place CI Cup will be DEAD.

If I have anything to do with it, we will have drop marks and a chase boat and get this event revived so Hustler and Deviation can get back to there annual match racing with other boats getting in our way from time to time.

I thought the only sailing Hustler does around City Island is sailing away from City Island. I guess I'm still new at this.

Hands down the best crew food I've ever had - delivered from the resturant (Coho) to the boat (Coho) via Tim's muscle boat (Medium Red ?).

 

The guy had it all for a while. Shouldda paid his taxes.

If he paid taxes he wouldn't have been able to afford the boats. The man apparently had priorities.

I'm sure you know all about what it costs to go to a private college. It's hard to justify taking the week before finals off to go racing in the Carib... no matter how sweet a gig. Was for my FL-->KW ride. Start begging and maybe I'll throw in a good word for you... same foredeck setup as A and verrrrrrry comfortable.

No question, do the race. What's the worst that can happen, you fail and have to take an extra semester of school? Not like their are any jobs out there anyway. :)

I like the Corby 29 in the classifieds but a little underpowered for LIS I think. I heard Truck Monkey sold. Days are getting longer these guys are waiting me out and I'm gonna run out of time!

Bold move? What am I missing here?

 

Yes, IRC and PHRF classes need to have everyone signed up in order to do splits. So the earlier you sign up, the earlier they can start doing splits. So get on the list. All other OD classes put themselves into it when registering.

 

Care to expound on your issue?

 

BTW, as with many other events, I would expect the scratch sheet to be made up long before the last day before the event.

Nothing to do with you LZ, your product has vastly improved AYC's scoring and information sharing. Of course it can only go so far with the club that is operating it. Regardless of how early people sign up my money is on not having a scratch sheet that resembles what is on the water before 26-27 April.

Maybe if you played nicer with the boats in your size range you could convince them to dispense with PHRF and get in the IRC game :) Work out a group pricing deal with a local rater and a yard with a crane & scale and have all your boats done at once for less $$

 

Send a fruit basket to Deviation, Maudelayne and Hound Dog and trade the Nanny Man back his digital picture frame in exchange for him coming out to play.

The J/92 wants no part of IRC, the boat actually rates correctly under IRC, equivalent to a 97 PHRF rating, which is exactly what JBoats says the boat should owe the J/29 ;)

As you proved last year by making it on the podium in a few races the IRC rating of a boat, no matter how shitty, can always be overcome by good crew work. It's all a matter of how many seconds you leave on the course. Bad douse here, slow tack there, miss a shift, second row start, etc. Call a layline wrong and all of a sudden you're being passed by someone with a less favorable rating because they're sailing their boat better.

 

In my mind people don't get to bitch about their rating until they're good enough to prove that they can't sail to it.

 

That applies both for PHRF, IRC, ORR, whatever. The advantage to the cost of IRC is that your number and the number your competitor has isn't subjective and arbitrary and it stays the same wherever you go.

Maybe if you played nicer with the boats in your size range you could convince them to dispense with PHRF and get in the IRC game :) Work out a group pricing deal with a local rater and a yard with a crane & scale and have all your boats done at once for less $

 

Send a fruit basket to Deviation, Maudelayne and Hound Dog and trade the Nanny Man back his digital picture frame in exchange for him coming out to play.

The J/92 wants no part of IRC, the boat actually rates correctly under IRC, equivalent to a 97 PHRF rating, which is exactly what JBoats says the boat should owe the J/29 ;)

 

As you proved last year by making it on the podium in a few races the IRC rating of a boat, no matter how shitty, can always be overcome by good crew work. It's all a matter of how many seconds you leave on the course. Bad douse here, slow tack there, miss a shift, second row start, etc. Call a layline wrong and all of a sudden you're being passed by someone with a less favorable rating because they're sailing their boat better.

 

In my mind people don't get to bitch about their rating until they're good enough to prove that they can't sail to it.

 

That applies both for PHRF, IRC, ORR, whatever. The advantage to the cost of IRC is that your number and the number your competitor has isn't subjective and arbitrary and it stays the same wherever you go.

 

Come on Wes don't go polluting this otherwise very intelligent and informative thread with IRC debates. Can't we just stick to what matters?

 

Heh,

 

According to my logic then either you and your team suck or your boats rating is unfavorable. Sail faster!

Is the keg kicked yet?

 

The keg was just brought to home depot to spend the next 30 days in the paint shaker, just to be sure its extra foamy.

Forget any of that, you'll be able to find me near the flagpole with a bottle of something Scottish at least 12 years old.

We're making plans to get him out on the water this Spring - Summer.

 

There is going to be a fundraiser in his local town in CT. next month. If you would like to donate please send a check made out to 'Benefit of Chris O’Brien' to:
