      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.

Report and video on Aussie multihull Peccadillo in this year's Australian Three Peaks Race here: http://mycv-news.blogspot.com.au/

 

Peccadillo is a Chris White 46 Mk2 with a modified, more powerful rig. Still a cruising boat though ....

I'll second that Corley, and the new website is also excellant. After watching Peccadillo's video I must say the Atlantic Cats for'd cockpit is somewhere I would prefer not to be in Bass Straight! Be nice in French Polynesia though. Cheers to all my Victorian mates and see you all? at Airlie Race Week, should be a ripper.

I agree the forward half of most multis is an unpleasant place to be in any sort of rough weather. I have often wondered the logic of the forward cockpit, especially on a cruising boat.

Aiming to do one leg per week or so. Dave just needs to find the time to edit the video!

 

Forward cockpit is wetter in those conditions obviously than most cats with aft cockpits (we were doing 24 knots in the video!), but is still better than most (all?) monos doing anywhere near that speed. And it is such a good place to sail from when racing - you are really aware of what's going on with the sea, the wind, the sails. These conditions represent prob less than 1% of our sailing - happy with the compromise.

Hey Peccadillo, bring that forward cockpit to sunny sailing in flat water! at Airlie Beach, & watch the 2 ORMA 60 Tri's battle it out. Team Vodaphone has confirmed they are coming & Team Australia has also!! A warm welcome is quaranteed. It should be the Multihull event of the year, More Mexicans up here than in Melbourne allready! It would be nice to see some of the Pittwater fleet head North as well. Be there, or be square. Tassy also Terry? Cheers all.

I like it that one of your runners was named Chris White, I had a chuckle when I saw that. Was that part of the deal, did he have to change his name? biggrin.gif You must be very happy with the boat, they always have been a favourite of mine.

Hoping to get all crew and runners to be called Chris White by next year. Then this ageing skipper won't have trouble remembering all those names .... :P

 

Love the boat and still tinkering with her. About to remove the mini keels and put deeper rudders on her, and change the inner forestay to be removable dynex and connecting higher up the mast.

Thanks Peccadillo, very interesting footage, looking forward to leg 3 and seeing you in the whitsundays ASAP. Mini keels and daggers? that will lose some drag! Cheers.

Man, that sure is a cool boat, very rugged and fast. Looks like you have done a great job setting it up for hard ocean work. That race looks pretty gnarly from where I'm sitting, here in sunny socal.

Nice Cat, I always liked the C.White lines, the forward cockpit to get you out in the action, and the pilot house for protection, a great combination in a go anywhere multihull design.

 

Shes a beauty mate.

Finally got the whole 3'rd episode OK. Very informative. You had them cold but discression is the better part of valour. Next year fingers crossed will be better. The For'd cockpit works much better reaching. Would be great up here. Hope to see you one of these days in the sunny whitsundays. Thanks for the posts.
