      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

I Have a serious craving to attend this race. If no crew spots open i can try scrambling one of my old trustfull friends from back home..but then i'll need a ship.are there any boats for charter for this race? Prefferably monos as that is where i (we) have by far most experience.

 

I'll pay full ensurance for the race and market price for the boat rental depending on shipshape of sails and foils

 

Best regards

Will John Craig explain how a couple of dozen weekend warriors mostly in 4ksbs can venture outside the Gate and mix it up with whatever is out there while "the best sailors, the fastest boats" are going to be stuck inshore on a comparatively tiny course? Cause I'd like to hear that. Maybe they couldn't get insurance? B)

Now play nice :-) and he'd be the first to smirk at that comment I'd guess from my interactions. My understanding is that logistics and tv productions (for the business model of this AC) are the limitations on the course.

 

DesaRae will speak on CG perspective on water events including AC and on the safety /SAR aspects of offshore.

That is from SailFlow, which this far out is using the GRIBs.

 

That is the great thing about forecasts, if you don't like one, pick another. ;)

One reef in a SC27 with a short hoist #4 blade was pretty good in these conditions..or 2 reefs.

 

I talked to someone who did the 82 race. They had 2 reefs in the main- bald headed on a SC27.

 

And the forecast is moving about..so keep a watchful eye..

Synopsis...GULF OF THE FARALLONES...AND CORDELL BANK NATIONAL MARINE SANCTUARIES...

 

SOUTHERLY WINDS WILL INCREASE THIS MORNING AS A STRONG COLD FRONT APPROACHES THE CALIFORNIA COAST. THESE STRONG WINDS WILL GENERATE STEEP FRESH SWELL. LARGE STEEP WEST SWELL...UP TO 20 FEET...WILL BUILD IN BEHIND THE COLD FRONT SATURDAY EVENING AS AN ASSOCIATED LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM PUSHES INTO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.

Pulled the boat in the AM and hit Ole's Waffle Shop ! Got in just before the rain hit. It was already blowing 20s, gusting to 30+ in the bay and although only hitting 25+ at the bucket it was suppose to get worse. Heard only 5 of 55+ started. US Coast Guard said they would not send out the 47' rescue boat but would scramble the helicopter if needed.

This DHF separates the men from the boys and the boats from the toys.

Well done Truth (and anyone else who showed up, even if you turned around)!

Thanks Trevor. Having to leave a kid home alone today was a factor for me at least -- in case the Bar shut down in the afternoon and we had to divert to HMB or something. Though I'm kind of kicking myself as the forecast seems to be a bit overcooked, based on current (1500 PDT) buoy reports -- 9.5 ft @ 11 secs, winds in the high teens.

Actually one of the reasons that made me buy a toy instead of a boat.

The sfbama.org site seems to be down, at least for me.

 

When is the awards meeting?

 

I think all the finishers will not lack for people wanting to buy them drinks.

 

Congrats to all that showed up to race!

Wow, great video. Any insight as to how they mounted the camera? Looks gimballed (and somewhat off-level due to the wind), plus it held pretty steady in some active conditions.

Sorry for the delay in the awards. We had several personal/family issues in those that were involved. We also had difficulties in getting GPS tracks which we wanted to include in the T shirts design which hopefully you'll like.

Here's how How to download send GPS track

 

If you didn't tell us T shirt size- please do so or you'll get what we choose :-)

 

Thanks again for your participation!

Do you have any t shirts left from last year?

 

 

 

Most likely- check link and go to "store " to check inventory

 

edit- just checked- online store not updated- standby- also we bring previous years to awards meetings.
