      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.

Good old Offie. Yes I did sail back on it. Just asking a simple question as I am not involved. WA sailing must be just going off after the AUS$21 MILLION that Skipo, Longley and your beloved Ian Campbell took ?

Yes it can take time but if Karl still owns it I can't see him waiting 12 months to put it back in the water. So there must have been a shit fight along the way, just wondering what that hold up is. Insurance or not? Builder? Owner?

Looking forward to seeing her sail, reckon she will give the slower 100's like Wild Thing a real run. Both Botin and Carkeek are up there with the best, in this case Botin, but both these guys designing some real fast boats, the Carkeek 40 a recent example, she has been beating the older TP52's around the course I hear. If they can bridge a 12 foot waterline gap like that with the latest thinking then it stands to reason an 80 footer can bridge the 20 foot gap with an older boat like Wild Thing or Lahana (Lahana not racing off course). I am assuming Beau Geste is a fixed keel design and Wild Thing is a canter so she would have her work cut out in many conditions but let's wait and see, certainly early days but these new designs seem very quick for their given LOA. Good to see Karl switch designers (Not criticising Farr, not my job) but perhaps a change in thinking, I'm sure Gavin and his boys will get her going early. Can't wait... P.S. Found out the new boat is a canter with dagger boards etc so expect her to be a real rocketship and certainly giving the older 100's the hurry up. She has been built for the ocean with more structure too so pushing her shouldn't be an issue.

Technically yes but the Swan 82 is a cruiser so gets lost on the list, Brindabella goes about the speed of a modern 60, so their focussing on the racers although they mention Zefiro as a 100 given she is a new boat competing albeit a cruiser. Talking up the 100's this year and why wouldn't you.? At least it's not quite all about Wild Oats for a change, this time around there are other boats in the mix.

 

Yes in the end of my post my P.S. says this. Here is the design.

The size, angle and the position almost at the hull/deck-joint is looking crazy! At the right speed these boards should create al lot of lift....

Can someone explain the reverse canted daggerboards? Normally they are angled the opposite way i.e, top of the board closer to centerline than bottom. This looks to be the opposite.

I'm not sure if it's the angle of the sail-world photos but the fortriangle looks enormous. Odd foredeck hatch too. Small for an 80 footer and offset to port which would be strange for a boat set up for passage racing.

 

The boards do look huge but the rudder foil design is interesting too.

Not sure what the confusion is about, the question was, what was the significance of the number "97" on the drawings of the new Beau Geste?

 

Beau Geste won the Hobart in "97" and became the 1st Asian boat to do so. As for the Farr 47 Ninety seven it won in 1993 so don't see the connection with 97. Please excuse me if I am wrong?

Wasn't aware of that Left Hook, so 97 was a big year for Hong Kong and Beau Geste.! Can't wait to see how the new boat performs, it could well frighten all the 100's in certain conditions.?

terra in 1993 'ninety seven' carried the sail no. 9797 , prior to the year 1997 ! so theres yr connection

 

it may have been a kwok boat prior to the aussie owner thus the sail number,

but i'm now thinking not ?

I do know theres a model or photo at the CYCA of a Beau Geste in the exact same hull colours as 'Ninety Seven', both Farrs, appears similar

--------------------------------------------------------------

 

in any case nos 97 or 9797 has both corrected & Line Honours significance

Gee i seem to remember that Ginko had been sold & moved to Italy when Ceil III was launched... well hanging around MHYC in the lead up to that Southern Cross Cup. The "Ginko"/"Apollo" design was the big One Tonner rule or were they 2 tonners,when built? Only remember Plumb Crazy was a 1/4 tonner as i was having too much fun in Cherubs at the time, to get bogged down in IOR Mks1-3b or whatever.

SPORTSCAR,Chris 249 & "Judge" may fill us in on facts ... JUDGE wrote = "Pazzaz" was a three quarter ton version of the 1973 S2H winer "Ciel 111" that was a One Tonner based on the "Ginko"/"Apollo" design. Rick Laycock commissioned her to replace his very successful S&S 34 "Aquila" but she turned out to be a gold plated dog. Beautifully built in cold moulded cedar with all the latest bells and whistles for the 1975 season, but she never did much, even in the best hands; those side trench cockpits were a dumb idea on a 35 footer with only about 13 feet of beam; anything over about 12 knots and they were half full of water half the time."

Gybeset you are off the mark in terms of relevance to your own original question. The way I see it is as follows: (As I said from my first post, don't know why you had to go complicate things)

 

 

1. Beau Geste won the overall Hobart in 97.. Hong Kong was handed back. - Lets keep it simple , 97 was a good year for Karl and for those reasons..! Simple Really..... (Andrew Strachan's boat had nothing to do with it..!)

 

 

Can we move on, I am more interested in Beau Geste and their chances for 2013, the boat looks like 80 feet of weapon, I'm starting to sniff some hurry up for the 100's..!

From what I've heard, the top of the boards were originally canted inboard to have the most efficient surface area acting to reduce leeway and produce lift to windward.

 

Then, after some testing apparently, they discovered that it's possible to cant the top of the boards outboard, and produce vertical lift without sacrificing too much in the way of windward lift. Hence why the past generation of VO70s had either vertical boards or slightly canted outwards (There was discussion on this in one of the threads for that edition).

 

This is all heresay, no numbers or references, but it's what I remember reading.

As there's usually a good chunk of upwind work in S2H, frequently heavy you'd have to believe that in those conditions an 80 foot surfboard's not going to trouble the bigger boats - as long as they all hang together. Downwind in the heavy? Well maybe, reaching? 50/50 - length matters.

 

And I'm pretty sure dayglow orange foils are faster than gold

I believe the Carkeek 40 which is not too dissimilar is really flying downwind. Wild Oats has adopted DSS to assist the boat in downhill conditions and to stop the bow burying. By the look of Beau Geste, the reverse daggerboards and scow bow etc she will surf her way ahead of the bigger boats if conditions permit. We could be seeing the next generation here in this design, the Carkeek 40 has been beating the 1st gen TP52's around the track, this thing could well do the same to some of the 100's. I haven't been this excited about a Hobart for a long time, bring it on.

If you wanted to go upwind you'd surely cant the daggers the old way and lose the Flat bow sections

 

as a passage boat with limitted upwind time this might be the way

 

 

i think the 40s bow is less flat than this one tho overall similar appearance for sure

I wonder if Beau Geste is virtually the same as the 100 they designed a while ago.? Love to see one of these thrown into the mix..

C100 Racer

.

The Carkeek 100 is a record breaker, designed to win under IRC either offshore over long distances or inshore around the buoys. She has a lightweight structure, highly optimised with extensive FEA for maximum stiffness to weight ratio and a low VCG allowing target boatspeeds to be achieved from a proportionally smaller sailplan. This results in lighter sails, lighter loads, easier sail management, and a boat which is easily driven.

The Carkeek 100 incorporates the latest grand prix developments into her hullform design, capable of sustaining high average speeds even in light airs, but with enough stability to support her large power to weight ratio in heavier conditions. This in combination with a high ballast to displacement ratio, and high sail area to displacement ratio allow her to excel upwind in light and heavy airs.

The forms and balance characteristics were carefully designed with owner-drivers and pro helmsmen in mind using our in-house CFD and performance prediction and balance software. These tools were used to calculate optimum appendage configuration, size and position. The deck layout and design of the clean over-size cockpit are directly inspired by VOR and maxi grand prix layouts, centred around creating an ergonomic platform to allow fast but safe sailing, sail handling, and manoeuvring and includes the latest TP 52 and VOR detailing.

The yacht features the following:

- Light displacement, high performance hull form
- Optimised carbon pre-preg/Nomex/Kevlar honeycomb construction throughout
- High/Ultra-high modulus carbon rig
- IRC optimised and ability to mode for ww/lw and offshore racing
- Topmast carbon backstays and hydraulically actuated deflectors
- Twin carbon checkstays with hydraulically actuated deflectors
- Canting keel
- Powered systems and trim controls

What I don't understand is why this typeform is rated competitively under IRC whereas lighter boats under 45 foot get crucified.

Thought the rule was supposed to be biased to dual purpose boats.

Damn, they tried to lift the 100 from Botin too? lol.

That's really oversimplified and somewhat a myth. A good design will win more often than not. Look at the 40's, they are winning pretty comprehensively.
