      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 plan is South Bay. Still working on the details with CYC.

One proposal is to do one day closer to downtown San Diego up by Harbor Island right in front of the head office of Flying Tiger Boats.......

Also looking to see if any out of town teams need help in logistics....trailers, delivery, storage, launching.

Lemme know!

 

Remember --- this is a 3 day event, no drops!

Thanks for working so hard on this. Me and my team are very interested in coming... but would need a charter boat. The math just does not work to drive it 2200 miles...each way. A couple of questions... what will the crew weight be for the regatta? Will there be a weigh in? What do you see the extra expenses being such as docking, entry fee, party passes, etc? Will the boats be "weighed in" and measured along with the sails?

 

Thanks!

Doug,

Will work with Tom to figure out the charter situation.

Still working through the details with the club on entry fees etc since this will be part of the CYC Sport Boat Regatta(see the post under Sportboat Anarchy).

There will be docking as well as hoist launching available at no charge at CYC over the race weekend. For those who need dry sail storage prior or post regatta, those are available at CYC to visiting valid YC members (guest fee -- pls contact CYC directly). Other options also exist (contact me)

 

We will of course be racing per the most recent edition of class rules (i.e. 1350 lbs). CYC juniors available to get you the last 50 lbs.....

Please contact me through direct messaging with any question regarding the CYC Fall Sport Boat Regatta and/or support from CYC. Our staff at the club is great, but they don't always have the details you really need. I'm going to be running the regatta, so the buck stops with me. I am negotiating with our Board and our Port Captain regarding wet/dry berthing, hoist use for boat weigh in, etc. I will publish a FAQ about dealing with our club ASAP.

 

FYI, the reason there has to be "negotiations" with the Port Captain is because Flying Tigers have been left at our guest dock without permission for days after a regatta 4 times in the last two years and our Board of Directors and Port Captain are sick of it. It turns out it is the owner of one unnamed rigging company who has been blowing off his resposiblities to move the boats on time. He, and his guys, will likely not be welcome on site during the regatta. Let's not let this one bad apple ruin it for everyone.

Need input from the Fleet on the Flying Tiger Nationals at the Coronado Yacht Club Fall Sport Boat Regatta. My goal is for all the sport boat crews who come to the regatta to have fun, but my focus is to ensure a fun and fair competition for the Flying Tiger NA's. I will likely start the Moths first as they will not cause any wind shadow problems for the Tigers in the second start. 2 to three more starts will follow for each race, possibly including a mixed PHRF fleet.

 

First, how many Tigers are thinking seriously about coming. I'll trying to get a feel for the numbers. Please speak up and let me know if you are coming.

 

Second, if you have any concerns, recommendations, etc. let me know here.

It was just a formality, but the Coronado Yacht Club last night approved the Flying Tiger 10 association's written request that CYC host the FT10 North American Championships on 21-23 September 2012.

 

Lets go racing!

It truly is the best club for racing Tigers. I hope they will forgive our past transgressions and we will all be on our best behaviour.

 

To show our appreciation - how about every participating boat agrees to take one junior out every day of racing and we agree that they don't count toward the weight limit? (So long as all jhuniors weigh between let's say 80 and 130 lbs or some such thing)

I'll take a look at the local juniors regatta calendar for that weekend and see if the San Diego area juniors might be available.

OK - 3 months to go!

 

Just in case you have not heard - we will have 2 charter boats here just in case some of you want to fly and drive.....

 

Out of towners -- I have a block of rooms reserved, PM me if you have trouble getting hotel rooms.

FYI, FT-10 NA competitors. The CYC Race Committee Chairman, Fred Hawes, has taken over from me to run the NA's and the CYC Fall Sport Boat Regatta. He will do a good job for you. I expect the NOR to be out in days.
