      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.

Thanks Bob

We had a great race on My Tai. She held up well in the rough stuff and we had max speed of 20.5 in some epic surfs.

Daryl the owner was real happy to be first boat back in all fleets even in front of dragonfly!

We'll post some video soon

Daryl:

You have no idea how proud you make me feel.

Bob, it is my pleasure and honour to sail on the Flying Tiger. The boat is one of the best designed all around race boats and has no weaknesses. Wether we are in light air or heavy weather we are always very competetive. This years Swiftsure was one of the toughest I have been in with very confused seas and winds gusting over 30 Knts. The boat and crew performed beyond expectation. Upwind we can compete with the J 109 and the C&C 115 and when we turn for home, there are very few boats that will keep up with the Tiger going downwind in heavy air.

 

Congratulations to you Bob for designing one of the best sport boats around.

Gee willikers Daryl, you almost made me cry.

I always thought the boat was good. Wish it had twin rudders though.

I am very glad you have found out how to make the boat go fast in such a wide variety of conditions.

 

Now can I interest you in a custom 60'er? I could do a Volvo boat. And my name is easy to spell.

Red Stripe had a fun BI Race which we didn't win, BUT check this out...

 

Red Stripe with upper hand on Rambler

 

Did you guys get on the wrong side of a big shift?

 

The boat went fast every time there was wind, but every detail of every forecast we bought or read online was dead wrong. Despite that I don't think we were disadvantaged by any shifts. At the end of the day, we had to sit through one too many sunset-sunrise deadzone transitions. We went backwards 4 times, anchored once. It was a tough slog.

 

We're still waiting for a repeat of the 2009 race that was downhill both ways...

Impressed, particularly going to weather in the heavy stuff. What was the sail config/options and # of crew?

We had one reef in the main and our number one jib. We didn't see over 20 knts. going out and we had nine crew on board. Coming back we had our A2 kite and a full main. We dropped our kite about 4 miles from race rocks and reached for the finish line with our number one jib and a reefed main. It was blowing 26 - 33 knts at that time.

Well, I had my first ride on a FT10 this week on a beer can race.

I think I liked it. Beating a same rating J120 was fun.

Not sure how this makes me feel.

Looking for a support group.

They say the first step towards solving your problem is admitting you have a problem.

 

" Hello my name is Moondance and I have a Tiger problem....."

 

All together now..... "Hello Moondance.."

Don't worry - it's nothing that a HELOC and a trailer hitch can't solve in a weekend...

To really get the feel of it we need to get the full crew on board and match race with TigerinCT. Maybe as part of the Park City Regatta?
