      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.

I'm not honestly suggesting this is the top 10 of anything, but it does have sailboat racing as an integral part.

The Horatio Hornblower series was really good especially considering the budgetary constraints they had compared with something like Master & Commander. They had like 10 episodes.

And Caddyshack should get at least an honorable mention.

Wind & Morning Light (for the OTW footage, not the story)

Captain Ron & Pirates of the Carribean (for the story, not the OTW footage per se)

 

I've seen most of the rest mentioned earlier, IMO there are only four good sailing movies so far...with good being a movie I'd watch more than once.

It took forever to find a clip of "The Dove" but I finally found one:

http://www.francetudiant.com/videos/?v=XpU_7JHV-1g

 

This is a very dated movie and probably too wholesome for the crowd at SA but I remember my parents taking me to see this movie when it came out and as a southern Californian teenager it was very inspiring.

 

The movie is 100% sailing.

'Wind' must be #1.

 

 

What other movie gets more mentions here? And is quoted all over?

 

 

Not that it is the best made. Sorry to say it was the first movie date my wife and I went to. We're still together so it must not have been all bad............

 

 

The documentaries on the Johsons and the various boats that they sailed all over the place are great, but I am not sure you call them 'movies'. Same for the Chichester doc's also.

If you haven't seen 180 Degree South yet, do it. Limited sailing footage, but amazing story, killer sound track, and awesome footage of a re-rig at sea. Check it out -

 

Oh, and Captain Ron is the shit...when he docks the boat the first time?! Classic.

Anyone remember that very rough script that someone wrote up about a new "Wind" with an actual storyline and lots of sailing?

 

It's kickin around somewhere, but it sounded like it would make a great script.

DEAR,MR CLEAN the sailing sequences in Dove, sailing in high winds with those shity dacron sails make this movie number one. Anybody who can sail a Ranger 23 3knot shit box around the world is a true mad genius. It certainly had an effect on me reading about it and then seeing it as a kid. If you have ever sailed one of these boats I think you would agree.

I hate most movies with sailing or climbing, one continuity mistake and I lose all buy in to the fantasy.

Could never get into the Matrix for the same reason. Opening sequence was filmed outside my old flat in Sydney, but when he turns to his left he is in a different suburb.

For that reason my favourite film on a boat is the chicky making French toast.

However, the actual Dove was a 24 foot Lapworth, subsequently replaced by a 33 foot Allied Luders The movie was made in 1974 and looks it. However, there is real sailing and most of it was shot on location. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dove_(1974_film)
