      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.

Sorry folks. LIvestream finally got their new embed player done and I got excited and posted the code for it. And it broke the Leg 9 thread. Sorry!

Sanya is shown 65 nm behind in Livestream and 9.1 nm behind in Live tracker. ?

 

Edit: In position report as of 13:35 UTC I meant.

I haven't been following thus far. can anyone bring me up to speed? how did ADOR and Sanya end up so far back so quick? just boat speed?

19 miles behind by measurement ruler on 2D live tracker.

9.1 miles at position 14:06 UTC report

over 60 miles on virtual eye of livestream.

 

All those at the same time.

What are we suppose to beleave.

 

And it's not just sanya either.

 

Edit, they fixed it in virtual eye to 19 miles behind, I guess that must be correct then. In that case position report was just nonsense.

If the finish is the same as the position of the fleet right now they finish as follows:

Points before leg 9 - Points in leg 9 - Points after leg 9

 

Puma 200 - 30 - 230

Telephonica 194 - 25 - 219

Camper 196 - 20 - 216

Groupama 225 - 15 - 240

 

Since there are no more than 6 points won in the in-port race of Galway,

Groupama is sure of there victory.

Unless Gammas knows at the last moment to finish last the match is surely won by Groupama.

If Gammas Finishes last the inport race Gallway will be decided for who wins before each other.

Puma or Groupama.

 

But that's extremely unlikely.

Stats be damned - coming back from a complete bust on Leg 2 with the boat being shipped to the next port - to 2nd place just a few points behind the leader. That's some fine racing Mr. Read.

This is going to be a test of nerves as the guys behind have a chance to catch up as the breeze lightens and goes aft. Reminiscent of Puma holding off Telefonica into Brazil.

Actually, if Puma wins this leg and Groupama takes 5th, then Puma will win the VOR if: Groupama comes last in the in-port and Puma wins it. They'll be tied on points, but IIRC Puma will take it because of best place in the last race. Correct?

No argument there.

 

I just meant that Puma is the only team in the top 4 to get 0 points for a leg - then claw back to within striking distance of the lead. Jury rigging is one thing - that's something else.

I disagree, I think they will make it on this gybe. Just like coming into Lorient, those who gybed early will win this, and Puma is losing out once again by being conservative. If someone else has to win this stage, I hope it is Camper. They need one win.

Puma looks pretty good on this jibe and the wind looks steady all the way in (8-12 in Galway). Tracker updates suck with arbitrary updates on each boat so they leapfrog each other, weird.

Video from Groupama at 20:53 UTC showed all boats on starboard gybe sailing toward the shore. Groupama was in 4th, Camper just ahead in 3rd, Tele abeam a long way to port in 2nd and Puma to port and ahead in 1st. Pretty much what the tracker shows (if you refresh and reset to "live"), except that the tracker shows Camper behind Groupama. The leaderboard on the tracker is on another planet.

Nope, the "LIVE" tracker and the Virtual Eye on the VOR sites are not updating, watch the forum on the right hand side of the VOR home page for details. Current order, confirmed by intermittent AIS readings is Camper, GP4, Puma, Tele.

You have to do some dead reckoning with the AIS data, as they are intermittent. Clicking on the icon for the boat shows you when the data were last received. And Tele just popped up again. I think the order remains the same, Camper, GP4, Puma, Tele, but it is awfully tight, and immensely frustrating that VOR has no backup for their live data other than sending out a rib, of which there are at least three already on site.

Heard Malta's the cheapest way of taxing a boat into Europe. Tax percentage is decided by the country, but once taxed the boat goes for all of the European Union :)
