      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.

Thanks. Must be frustrating for the Artemis guys.

 

BTW: I am not expert but the 45 was not designed to foil and looks like a chicken trying to fly.

 

 

 

Hope they will have the 72 ready in time.

Beautiful bit of breeze in the video. Opti's out enjoying the day. A tad over the proposed wind limit for AC 34 though?

 

It would be fucking hilarious if the Ac72's were on the beach while the Opti's got a race or two in as the substitute entertainment. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Thanks again JNavas :)

Good upwind shots ^_^

 

Anyone notice the Ls on the new symetrical ETNZ foils?

They are reasonably thick at the turn but quickly taper to a very thin section, Tuna fin type taper & rake in profile.

Definitely much smaller than the mk1 foils.

That would be rather ironic...especially if it was during live coverage of a delayed start and thats all the commentators had to cover!!

No, some sphincters definitely would have clenched on the boat.

The straight line speed must have the ETNZ boffins a little bit worried tho.

That thing is motoring.

Looks like the windward hull lifted 3-4x it's previous height when the nose buried. Forgive me because I'm getting old but on a rig that can't be depowered quickly I was sure that this sort thing tends to happen shortly before it faceplants.

 

Thanks for the patronising though.

Ha ha, Ya reckon this kayaker took a change of underwear out with him?

 

 

To bad you couldn't get a shot of the kayaker with his arms up as ETNZ is coming his way. Clearly an "oh shit" moment for both. :lol:

 

But the sequence, starting at 9:00, with ETNZ dodging the kayaker and then having to change coarse again for the sailboat shows even the mighty ETNZ has their hands full with their boat when forced into unexpected manuvers. Is this where the benefit of OR having two boats with two crews practicing actual racing going to help a lot? ETNZ looks stable and formidable when by themselves doing what they want, but that sequence of them dodging around shows them to be slow and clumsy. Seems clear ETNZ would want to force OR into close combat. ETNZ looked clumsy in that sequence, but OR would of been a mess, and may have taken out the poor kayaker. Then again, ETNZ wasn't very strong on the AC45's in match racing during the ACWS so I guess there goes that theory.

 

The AR clips popping up, after watching either ETNZ or OR race around in their AC72's, is simply sad to see. Credit to the AR guys for pushing on though.

WH, I am less than convinced there is going to be much close contact at all.

ETNZ look fantastic turning corners downhill.

OR seem to me significantly faster upwind, tacking and downhill in a straight line.

Will the spectacle (and speed) of a foiling jibe make up for the perceived (by me) deficits?

If they do balance out, where do the overlaps occur?

Yes, thinking it over I am less than convinced too. If ETNZ looks clumsy manuvering their boat unexpectantly, then OR would be worse at this point. So both would avoid actual match racing at all costs.

 

Well thats why this non-sailor usually stays away from commenting on race tactics.

Haha, hilarious. They were definitely on their toes for that run, and I was on the edge of my seat!

 

Thank you JN! Very greatly appreciated. Hopefully today we might get to see some 2 boat testing from OR.

If OR can't refine their jibes to the level ETNZ has, we may see a few lead changes (assuming ETNZ vs OR in the AC). From these videos I'd guess we'll see 2 or 3 jibe's per downwind leg (depending on wind direction?).

Anyone else catch the kayaker getting buzzed by OR and chase boat at 7:54 - 7:56? I bet his adrenaline was going.

Thanks JN. such great videos.

You may have been asked this before, but what are you shooting these with?

 

Panasonic DMC-FZ150 -- fantastic stabilized Leica super-zoom lens, able to record Full HD video at 60 fps progressive.

 

Bear in mind that a very long lens compresses distance, so boats are not actually as close together as they look. :o

 

Beautiful bit of breeze in the video. Opti's out enjoying the day. A tad over the proposed wind limit for AC 34 though?

It would be fucking hilarious if the Ac72's were on the beach while the Opti's got a race or two in as the substitute entertainment. :lol: :lol: :lol:

 

Wind was only 8+ kt when I started shooting, but built rapidly to 12-14 kt and then 14-16 kt, still comfortably under the proposed wind limit.

 

Thanks to all for your kind words. :)

I don't think Tony was patronizing. He has experience on multis, obviously, and any of us that do know that sometimes the bows will be going under a bit, but there is a big difference between the bow going under a bit and throwing up a ton of spray and actually digging in deep to the point where rudders start popping out and control is lost. I agree with Tony, it did not look even close to losing control in this example, as the sterns stayed pretty low. Just a nice hose down for the crew.

Bear in mind that foils like these can increase the risk of pitchpoling -- when the angle of attack of the boat goes negative, the angle of attack of the foils can also go negative (depending on rake), pulling the front of the boat down into the water instead of lifting it.

In scene we are talking about, the boat stayed pretty flat. You need to see a significant angle, with the bows digging very deep, before the foils start pulling the boat down significantly. One of the reasons the boards are being moved back further is to eliminate the issue you bring up from being a significant factor. In essence, the further you move the boards back, the more they pull the stern ends down, rather than pulling the noses down.

 

As Tony said, in the scene we are talking about here, the boat was submarining a bit, which is different than stubbing its toe hard. The problem is that the water slams the beams and creates incredible drag, but I just don't see where THIS instance was one where the boat was in any jeopardy of PPing.

The reason why there was no risk of pp was because wind was light, sea flat, foil lifting and jib eased.

Still, it's easy to talk afterward, when the bow digs in nobody can really tell what happens, and it happens in a fraction of a second.

But as a multi-guy, yourself, you have to admit that we see a lot of comments about any time a boat submarines a bit that it is almost going over again, and most of the time, those comments are over-reactions.
