      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.

Awesome Lickety :) :).

 

Sorry Ricky. We didnt even got to Squadron before the card filled up. No pics of Octopuusy wiping oug, no Shaw thing porpoising down to Como (doing the dolphin!), no vipers turtling. Very disappointing.

 

That said, got some nice footage of catching up to the fleet after starting a minute late and of us trucking up hill. Passed a viper like it was standing still...giggle. The Shaw's love heavy air. Might see if Swompy can help me to upload it.

 

We should change the name of this thread to The Shaw Report ;).

Are you and octo going to join the Vipers for the RFBYC Opening?? Mid river start at 2:05

I'll run a few extra course cards off...

Looks like eight vipers, Indecent Haste and whoever else...

Could be a good turnout....

Ended up a nice 13-14Knots. Didn't predict the Fremantle Docter to kick that hard after a slow move through the North.

:D :D am so!

 

Yeah, it was pretty light most of the race. Best run all day was heading back to SoPYC Octopussy got line honours, followed by Indecent haste and then us. Freshies aparently messed up the results, probably mistook us for Octopussy because we had our old Octopussy sails on.

 

Masses of boats out near the start line. Two canoes decided to sail through the middle of the fleet amidst everyone (couldn't believe it - was sure they were going to get run over.

 

Was great to see everyone out there :).

Another great day. Beautiful sailing weather... If a bit light.

Interesting start with the sports boat fleet, 8 vipers and the Musto performance skiffs starting on the one line. The Musto's must have loved that...

The Shaws and the bigger T750 fought it out for line Honours with Octopussy getting the gong.

Tim Reger in his new Viper sailed superbly to finish a couple of minutes ahead of the other Vipers and a few seconds behind the Shaw -Shaw Thing.

Converting elapsed times to SMS, Viper 1st, Shaw 2nd and Viper 3rd.

Opening are over and sportsboat SMS series to come ... Should be great close racing.

Here's a summary of our day. Great tussle with the T750, M24 and all the rest of the fleet being close behind. Terrific to see all the Shaws and most of the Vipers out. I suspect the RFBYC handicapper didn't do us any favours ! The trip back to Freshie wasn't too bad either.

Cool footage, 410. That's a good angle. How is it mounted on the boom?

 

Those traps look like great fun!!! :)

Flat bottomed u-shaped carbon bracket under boom just forward of rear blocks. Nice to see you Saturday. Boat looks very good.

Sounds ideal. Will have to tell Skid.

 

Yeah, we were/are really happy with it. Just have to sort our keel issue and repair a bit of damage that happened at Port Walcott.

 

Hey, do you have a speed puc? We need to get one and suppose we should do our homework.and get a good one.

Going to make for a tactical Governors Cup... Run, Reach, Reach, Reach, Reach, Reach, Upwind, Reach.. Somehow I think a Couta boat might win.... they charge hard in a blow reaching.. Or a Sporty... if you get an ok handicap
