      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.

I hope so Crump! LOL

 

It was a fun day chasing you around the lake. My knots kept coming untied on my jibe sheets so I was a bit slow catching you and Mickey upwind. Apparently I can't tie a bowlin anymore. It was suppose to be a 5-10 day but that never happens and this was really a nice 10-15 day with a few puffs around 20. Really nice day and wonderful temps. Thanks for the sail guys!! Really fun to get out after the winter chill!!!

Please tell me that Krumpie is not already dialed in after only one day on the boat.

 

Any idea if Apexchaser is going to come out Sunday, Dave? If we're going to be effed, might as well be effed twice, amirite?

Naw... he isn't dialed in yet. He was trying to furl the kite while turning upwind and his furler is tweaked. He'll get there quick though and he was trying to get way forward and get the butt out of the air like his raider. Felipe is not gonna make it though. Going to Florida for Spring Break.

Congrats to Big D for winning Mudfest Opening Day Regatta 2012. I only got my suburban slightly stuck once in the mud. But the sun came out and a slight breeze filled in briefly before dieing completely on the distance course. Red got 2nd in his Weta and Crumps beat me with 3rd in his new Weta as well. I don't even think I corrected over the Fireball. But aside from having zero wind and some mud to play with, it was a great time. Hope the water rises a bit from it.

I can understand Big D leaving us behind when there's a breeze and he nails the start. Coulda sworn he had a Mirage Drive installed when the wind squatted, though. :D

 

 

It was great playing together again. Looking forward to next time.

We were cutting it close! Some of the other clubs on the lake had problems with the lake level, but all we did was to add a little extra cable to the cranes so that we could hoist the boats down.

 

We are still 1.82 feet below full.

 

The scratch sheet will be updated ASAP.

I would have to defer to the guys in charge of the Texas Centerboard Circuit. I am sure they have the most experience with handicapping various boats in portsmouth. Have any Weta's sailed portsmouth on the circuit?

 

I am open to allowing any boat to sail. I only want it to be fair to all parties. We will try to be as flexible as possible, within reason, to accommodate all boats. If a rating is determined for the weta, then the Weta has the right to attend the regatta and sail to that rating, or not sail.

 

The current plan is to sail all portsmouth boats in the same fleet. I will be consulting with the TCC on proper protocol as more entries come in and time gets closer.

Of course I'm bias but the Weta's sail much better with the portsmouth fleet as far as speed goes. It's more of a performance dinghy than a mutihull. I've tried to race it with mutlihull fleets and i'm just twice as a slow as everyone. It takes me an hour for what they do in 30 minutes. The original rating by USSA is 78.5 but European numbers, that are at least updated, now have the boat at an equivalent rating of around 84 which more like a Thistle or a Fireball.

DaveK,

I lost my instructions for focusing my cell phone camera.... It might be that a good lens cleaning is in order though :P. Two weeks till Bridge Too Far! Can Big D maintain the momentum? Will Red tuna challenge him? How will the Crumpie do with the Weta if we have some breeze? All these questions and more to be answered on the 31st of March at the Stillhouse Hollow marina. Rumor has it there will be at least one Raider and a Raider II there also.

It was a hoot today out on lake Travis.... Gusts were recorded as high as 30 knots on the point. Damn I hate it when the weather is a week late :P. I had some serious screaming fast reaches and nothing busted. The fore stay pin (3/16) is bent pretty good though,

 

The lake is up another foot or so. The bottom point is getting smaller. DK, It is now high enough to be Landfill 14' launchable. the Catalina 22's were launching and a J24 launched also but got stuck.

if the portsmouth group is comfortable with the VX racing against them, then I don't see a problem. We just want to try and avoid getting the fleet too spread out on the course between the fastest and slowest boat.

I wish i could, rush creek is a great club - we love sailing there. Unfortunatly i'm tied up that weekend.

 

remember - that viper rating was with no bulb and a single trap. Should get some credit back for that on the VX rating. I actually think a portsmouth rating exists.

 

Might see you guys at the bridge too far next weekend.

Let's see if they can sail to it as it might be low, as is the Weta's.

 

I saw that the Hull Yacht Club has the VX rated at 108 vs the Viper'ssss 99.

 

http://www.hullyc.org/gcr_scratch.php

 

No idea if it's provisional, but if that number is accurate, that would make DPN=(PHRF+330)/6 = 73.

I don't think it matters much. From what I saw at canyon there should be a huge disparity between light and heavy air. We launched in the light and were neck and neck with big d in yr heavy atuff.

 

It's handicap racing, which means it's more about who wins the party (for me). And there ain't no handicap that'll hold me back on that one, bring it!

Well Ultra, Far as i can tell we will have the two Canoes, very possibly three Weta's, I'll be sailing the Contender, Harpoonette & crew on her Harpoon 5.2, Art and Pam on their V15 and I think two Raiders,. One of them being the newer generation Raider Sport II. I suspect Tumble weed will be sailing his Melonseed. I'd suspect we might even have one or two more.

Will the elusive "Gouv" finally show up to a TCC race?

 

Will Mickey catch a 5 lb bass, or get outfished by Harpooneta?

 

Will the new Raider owners beat up on the former Raider owner?

 

Will the Wetas completely clog up the start line?

 

Who will be lured into the "minefield" of stumps?

 

Will DaveK finally make an exciting video with funky tunes by bands you never heard of?

 

Will Big D take it all the way to the finish line for glory this year instead of the boat ramp?

 

 

So many questions will be answered this Saturday..........

Did I mention that Rush Creek ( http://www.rcyc.org ) is having a VX One Demo Day this Saturday @ 10? Come out and check out the VX.

 

I can not wait to take it for a ride, and Rod, I am first in line as I have to catch a flight at 3.

I sure wish we could make it up for the demo day Scooter... But we will be racing this weekend on Stillhouse Hollow! We will probably get Demo'd by Ultraracer on his VX-1.

I don't think it matters much.

 

Yup, not in this crowd, Jeff.

 

I'm not finding a NOR or registration; nothing on the SHSC site. Just show up? What's it cost? Is there a park entry fee? Guess I need to make sure I bring some cash.

 

Also wondering if the lake level is up enough to make it to the bridge. TWDB shows it up 10-12 feet in the last week or so at 89% full. The lake looks like it can have a lot of reaching if the wind is right.

Hi Larry,

I seriously doubt there will be anything as formal as a NOR maybe some SI's at the skippers meeting if that. It is looking possible that we will be racing to the bridge and back. I had some activity on the yahoo group page and Derek mentioned that he had contact with SHSC and we are going to have a one o'clock start with a 12:00 skippers meeting. I doubt there will be an entry fee. So to answer your questions.... Yes just show up, I don't think it costs anything. yes there is a park entry fee but often you tell them your here for the regatta or going to the marina you might not have to pay the 3-5 dollar entrance fee. Figure on four hours or so if we have some breeze. Plan on beer drinking and maybe eating at the end of the dock afterwards.

Okay, so two posts about stumps has my attention. As I intend to be in front of you all :P, I need to know where these things are. Is there a better map than this available?

I've planned on being there, but if sailflow is correct I'm not so sure now. Going to take a wait and see. Long way to go for a two knot wind.
