      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.

Hi guys, first post here

 

Just thought I'd introduce the Vagabonds and a Classic to this modern circle. In antigua at the moment. On our way back to the med soon for the regatta season. A short clip of leg 4 of our voyage last year. Hopefully see you out there!

Thankyou dude. We were hitting the late 16s

 

The wave height was pretty big at times, the fish eye lense of the go pro really iron them out. I have a few short clips on my ipad which give a much more accurate impression. My best friend Sam on board is from Jersey and had done the channel many times, so it was great to have him, did saywhilst climbing out the hatch "look at the size of that wave" in a humbling tone. We all agreed when we were back on shore that they were the biggest we had ever seen, but that said, it was far more comfortable than what we sore in the golf du lion. We were hammerd there.

 

The cool thing is theres more footage of that stom in biscay as we were in lisbon at the same time as the 2012 volvo ocean race. We left the day before they left for thier leg 8. lisbon rounding the azores and crossing biscay to finish in Lorient.

 

We the day before they started and headed up to A Corunia, then they started and completed in four days entering biscay on thier day 3, day four of our trip so they crossed only just north of us according to our log and arrived due to being rapid! Quite some time before we got to falmouth.

 

The video is here

and its sick!

Great stuff - did the same passage many moons ago. All I can say is the boat I was on was nowhere near as beautiful as yours.

Cheers!

Another few clips of a storm with smaller waives but shot with my poor I pad which doesn’t iron out the sea as much, of course with both videos its more the beginning and end of the weather system. This one we had to climb for 2 days before we could crack off for Palma and this is where we most all of our (entirely electrical) problems as it was first trip of the season. After arriving in Palma it was up wind or no wind all the way to Biscay. Bummer :rolleyes:
