      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 don't think ETNZ will try to beat them by too much.

I'm still thinking ETNZ are sandbagging a bit to keep OR guessing on what their optimum angles and speeds are.

Will be viewing on the water today, but the exclusion zone is huge compared to last year. But you can see them up close when they are warming up away from the course. Anybody know what VHF channels have race info?

The AC map shows that it's ok to pass between Alcatraz and SF but on Thursday the marshal boat made us stay north of Alcatraz Island.

Hey...

 

First... I am NOT a techy... but seem to get by.

 

I think you are saying that you click on it... it opens to a black box that doesnt do anything.

 

I have found that if you click to expand the screen... for some reason the vid plays. IIRC it would happen vimeo...

 

Of course this may not be what you describing.

There are many 'maps'. Recently they had to push the boundaries even further out as they claim the crews wanted a 45 second buffer beyond the boundaries before they ran into traffic!

 

Good luck with your mission out there you poor bugger! ;)

Pretty clear this ac is going to be won into wind.

Or at least offer opportunities to attack the opponent - as long as they're not too far back. Dees Smith has done a great job schooling Barker and his team on the local conditions...

don't understand LR's tactics- following in the wake of NZ in jibes, then the way they are handling the current and their position relative to NZ going up wind

 

and didya see the LR crew trying to get on the grinder with the handles spinning? yikes

 

and how cool was NZ's rounding of the leeward mark

ETNZ-LR lost almost 2 minutes upwind. So yeah, upwind will decide things.

 

Also, with the shorter bowsprit, ETNZ-LR's boat does not look balanced. Maybe once they get the boat sorted out with the new/shorter bowsprit they will improve, but it would need too be a huge leap of improvement to catch ETNZ.

 

What an ass kicking.

Thanks. I had hoped that there was something on the AC website that a less interested, casual viewer could refer to to understand the framework, like crew lists for the current race, length of the course etc.

A comprehensive overview for the non-geek like the person I'm currently watching the race with.

I am surprised that there is no one on the helm when Barker runs from side to side during a tack.

I noticed they aren't giving the distance between the two boats anymore. I think Dogzilla's biggest lead was 3.5K - I imagine this will be at least 1.5K by the end.

Yes, the boats are impressive, but any significant difference in boat performance will result in a huge distance between the boats. THey'll seldom be in shot at the same time...

If TNZ averaged 30 knots on the downwind leg their lead was over 4.5KM when they finished.

 

I think TNZ is going to give us a run for our money.

I see him there for the gybes, I didn't see anyone on the wheel during the tacks. I will have to check it out when the replay is available.

I would chalk this ass kicking up to a significant difference in crew performance, then boat performance.

 

ETNZ's crew was flawless, ETNZ-LR's was piss poor.
