      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 saw some Pipeline Boys as well... they were on the excellent point break as we re entered the harbour after a great weekend.

Well done to all who took home the prizes, and to those who put in the effort to make this a great event.

I purchased BobSled as a toy for B to B and Airlie and possibly Pearl Challenge and Bay to Breakers etc. while in Qld for the Winter.

The Spider;s CBH got hammered because of the OS Assies so I decided to get an SMS for her. Will allow us to have much more fun amongst some great boats and great punters.

We don't plan to do any serious SMS campaigning, would have purchased something different for that. . Hopefully we will be able to keep up with the fleet and sail to our rating once the crew are happy with the Big Kite in 15 knots plus which hopefully will be pretty soon.

Hope to catch up with you in more ways than one at Airlie..

Its called apparent wind angle

yeah, I get that, but that is on pretty tight, Are you that going that fast downwind?

 

There are a few reasons: (1) the main is in the backwind of a large masthead spinnaker, (2) large masthead spinnakers can give lee helm and keeping the main on hard reduces this problem, (3) the main helps support the mast (this is more important in strong winds).

 

Next time you're sailing try different amounts of mainsheet: you'll find that it's fastest to have it almost all the way in to the centreline.

 

The jib is completely different because it can disturb the airflow around the spinnaker. It's usually best to ease it until it starts flapping and then pull it on slightly. This minimizes the interference to the spinnaker without having it cause drag by flogging. The length of the spinnaker pole is a factor here. If it's short then the problem is worse. If it's very long then you may be able to pull the jib on a bit more.

There was about 15knots each day average id say, we hit 12.9 knots on the gps on sunday, and 15.9 sunday on the T7, so there was a bit of air, and some large swells to run down!

 

 

The thing is quite quick, even upwind when it went bumping past! :lol:

25 boats makes for a great regatta, can be a bit tough finding lanes though when you are at the low rating end of the pack. Would have liked to see them turn the races over a bit quicker on Sunday, getting back to Sydney at 3am makes for a hard day at work monday.

How did the viper go against the fast shaw's moneyshot and peow. On the results you were close in one race but 9 mins behind in another, Was that due to different conditions or just a bad race? How about downwind speed with the frac kite?

In real terms, the best two Shaws were a bit faster upwind but quite a bit quicker downwind, particularly so in gusts when being able to stay in the pressure longer translated to bigger than normal gains. We had very close boat for boat racing with the other Shaws. We are a long way from our potential as yet so I hope to narrow the gap by the next regatta.

 

Good day not to be sailing in Sydney today!
