      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.

This seems like a cool race to do but conflicts with the Around MV Race for me this year :(

 

It's a very fun race. Wish it would catch on with more of the racing fleet. As of now, it's mostly cruisers

Yeah - damn those cigar smoking Bostonians and the mouse infested sail inventories one gets to witness on this summer excursion.

 

 

 

But damn - the weather can be kinda cool

I would like to think that there's hope for a more active racing fleet what with Dragon and Blazer racing previously.

 

My grandfather was a Corinthian for most of his life, organized the annual cruise a few times (I want to say 2000?). I've toyed with the idea of applying for Junior membership some day and do the race in his memory.

Dragon is planning on doing it again. Gotta defend the title.

 

Ryano - I know I owe you an email. Sorry, been a bit busy. Junior has also been out of the country and just got back, in case you have been trying to get in touch with him.

Any prospect of opening it up to Class Mini's? Might be a good course for them, unless of course a stinky Northeaster is blowing. But that wouldn't be fun for anyone.

Samba,

 

It is a fun race.

 

Did it in 2010 with crew; we were the only boat FROM Boothbay Harbor in the race.

The countdown clock says 10 days and change before the start of this race, and my question from 4 months ago remains -- who are we racing against?

Unfortunately, not Dragon. Still figuring out what I am going to do about the sprit I broke in Newport Bermuda.

 

Greyhawk - let me know if you need any help with logistics in Mystic / Stonington.

The Corinthians, their membership, used to be very active in racing. That has faded over the past 30 years.

 

 

My grandfather was a Corinthian for most of his life, organized the annual cruise a few times (I want to say 2000?). I've toyed with the idea of applying for Junior membership some day and do the race in his memory.

 

Bill Thomas is your grandfather?

 

If you are seriously thinking about joining, let my know a couple of months in advance so I can have my membership reinstated......

My grandfather was Emmett Eaton.

 

Normally I would say that I don't want to join any club that would have you but not one which was so close to a loved one's heart.

Emmett was your grandad? Wow. My father (and I) were good friends with Emmett. So your mom is an Eaton? I'll bet I have known her from back in the 70's then.

Small world.

I've actually been racing for the past few days rather than shit flinging on SA. Amazing isn't it?

 

Yes, Emmett was my Granddad. He seemed to be able to make friends with everyone so I'm not surprised that he counted you and your father among his friends

Back to the race in question, a preliminary participants list has finally been published, although they are still trying to sort out who is PHRF vs. ORR and Spinnaker vs. Non-Spinnaker (just over a week to go...)

You shouldn't throw your grandfather under the bus so quickly.

We're going to be beating into it hard on the nose tomorrow into Tuesday to get the boat down to Connecticut for this race :( But some really great racing up here in Boothbay Harbor this weekend! (There should be a prize for best combined performance in the BHYC Regatta and the Lobster Run -- would probably go to Panache this year).

The Corinthians are still a very active bunch, but I will admit that most of the beards have a touch of grey. I was pleased to see them take the steps to create a Cat 2 race a few years back., and it has attracted some young blood.

Looks like this years race will launch with about 15 yachts, participants are listed on the website and the race's Facebook page.

P.S. Emmett Eaton was a great guy, and he is deeply missed by the Corinthians, and most everyone it appears.

Sorry GREYHAWK had to drop out before the race started. We ran hard into a rock on the way down. Not sure yet what the damage is to the keel -- diver said "a big chunk" was missing -- but fortunately the hull (frames, floors, etc...) is intact (a very rugged build). We nursed the boat back home while we had favorable winds, although they died before we got here, so we finally got back in late yesterday evening. Independently, our engine started leaking diesel into the bilges in a big way, so we've got our work cut out for us to get the boat back into race shape... Good luck to the fleet, we'll be watching you on the tracker. (Go Apparition!)
