      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.

Best AC34 Limerick

148 posts in this topic

To help pass the time while we all go a bit nuts with impatience for the start of actual racing, how about exercising your literary powers on coming up with the best limerick for AC 34?

 

Here's my first effort:

 

The bastards are making us wait

For the start of the race which we hate

We speculate madly

About things we know badly

Going ape-shit over stuff like king-post gate

Why the fuck must we all sit and wait

for the outcome of the (yawn) King Post gate?

When it's obvious to all

Someones taking a fall

For the Coutts and the Ellisons we hate!

 

(Yeah "Hate" is a bit too strong but it had to rhyme :))

There was small crew from EnZed

Who sailed on a black rocket sled

When they went down the mine

They were perfectly fine

Coz they had volume up front and not lead.

There was a man named Ellisan

Who thought he could sail better than Ernie can

In lead mine SBs he tried and failed

Until in a monster Tri he sailed.

 

He cloned CNEV into Artimis

To ensure all callenges would be a piece of piss

As he expects only wins, not defeats

By hook or by crook or even cheats

 

Now his brand looks shopsoiled

And plans for the defence have been foiled

He maintains support through Anarchist Stingray

Whose loyalty will be tested by the IJ

 

If they don't start racing real quick

I'll be writing another fn Limerick

A Round the world Skipper called Dalts

might possibly have some small faults

he might sometimes talk "blue"

But he grinds with his crew

and his team from NZ he exalts.

 

He was offered a "Sir" but said NO,

Down that primrose path he'd not go

a kiwi to the core

he would even the score

With "Sir Russ" who's team started with "O"

So the Cup was in Straits quite dire

It could never get put of the mire

From one year to the next

'twas a struggle at best

And the teams ended up on the pyre

 

The smart ones amongst us said hey

What we need is a media fray

Gladitorial sports

Of the watery sort

And we'll piss on those that say nay

 

But first we need some controls

We're in charge so let's have some polls

And with all the votes in

We'll just do our own thing

And to hell with all those arseholes

 

An event not for Stone Ager man

We'll create completely new fans

With a Facebook account

He needs no amount

Of knowledge of Catamarans

 

For that is what we will race

The C- Class is setting the pace

Our old lead pig slugs

Resemble more tugs

In the twenty first centuries face

 

Rules drafted - please now a drum roll

We've named the thing a protocol

It contains all the rules

But only some tools

Can read them without alcohol

 

Now the boats can stand up on their foils

Reaching speeds at which water it boils

With this limit in place

The length of the race

Means sailors continue their toils.

 

Another invention - the wing

Is quite a spectacular thing

With the leading edge twisted

The boat is not listed

And oh how the foils they sing

 

But to stop at the end of the day

Means a crane and a dock on the bay

Where forty shore crew they sit

Which costs quite a bit

And those costs are quite hard to defray.

 

And the sponsors don't like it a bit

That their money is spent on this shit

Except sailors have pockets

Where some of the profits

Get diverted and spent on the flit

 

So the sponsors no longer come

To part with spectacular sums

For the right to declare

That they have been there

When the smart take their money and run.

 

For a sailors preference is rum

And not to live under the thumb

But for this he needs you

And me it is true

To pay - oh it's lucky for some

 

But it seems those days have now passed

Where the money it flowed - and quite fast

You could fill up your boots

With all of the loot

And a fortune was quickly amassed

 

Best beware cos Karmas a bitch

Not everything runs with no hitch

when fiddling the rules

there are some home truths

And all it takes is one snitch

King Larry thought adoration

An appropriate response from the nation

For winning the chalice

From the Swiss prince of malice

But instead we want his abdication

 

 

 

 

A public that should be adoring

Thought the Louis Vuitton Cup was quite boring

Despite the speed and the foiling

All the grinding and toiling

There once was a sailor called Simmer

His first job ? Australia's trimmer!

But the years had gone by

Bringing tears and a sigh

His glory was faded - was dimmer.

 

Could he return to the circle of winners ?

But which boat would give him that glimmer ?

He thought one designs fine

But for your boat not mine

And proceeded to make his hulls slimmer.

 

He had an old mate called Murray

Couldn't recognize epoxy-lead slurry

But when he cut colour seven

For world championship heaven

He sure made it home in a hurry

 

Another young gun was called Jimmy

At the starts he surely could shimmy

But with the wind on his arse

And the tide ebbing fast

All his crew ended up in the swimmy

 

Of the Aussies Bertrand's the man

Who removed from New York the old can

But now that he's old

And his stories been told

It's to swimming he's turning his hand

 

Not since Their boat went down the mine

Have the Aussies repeated the crime

The Cup stays aloof

As visible proof

Although Bondy has served out his time

 

Syd Fishers a crusty old goat

With plenty of dough in his tote

He wasted his time

In Oosanens prime

And now he won't pay for a boat

Oracle did an unorthodox thing

And very thoroughly trashed their wing

The rig was certainly damned

- everyone heard "Bam Bam"

And the Clysar started to ping

 

Not all of the trash floated in reach

Some was adrift for a matter of weeks

By swallowing bits

All the birds got the shits

And some jellyfish lost their sting

 

The environmentalists started to screech

This carbon footprint was clearly in breach

Southwards floated the spill

(It was spied from a hill)

Forming hazards on Pebbles Beach

You compose an ode to Artemis

Maybe just to take the piss

But Did you sign an NDA?

Now - that will not go away

Which makes it all quite serious

 

To write the piece t'would be cruel

You never know - perhaps the crew will

It would be just a limerick

And surely they would know the trick

Except that they forgot that the last line has to rhyme with the first one so they thought they should throw it out and start again but had already got this far so decided to push on anyway and see I they could work it out in the end . . .

Now a pelican has a great beak

And is always looking for something to eat

And when they are ravenous

Become quite scavengous

So beware they don't aim at your feet

 

There was a particular bird

They had strayed away from the herd

Down to Pier 80

it became rather matey

With the oracle boatbuilders crowd

 

It used to hang out by the trash

For the tidbits, nibbles and mash

One day in a rush

It swallowed some mush

From a furtively guarded stash

 

Although he swallowed it whole

The taste was a little bit foul

Something stuck in his throat

He could no longer float

So he took to his wings on the prowl

 

But his flight was upset by gravity

Due to his dining depravity

He flew down by the head

With a beak full of lead

Which modified his pitch stability

 

Which is why that bird so did lunge

At the deck in his deadly plunge

When they did the autopsy

They found that epoxy

Mixed with lead had comprised his lunch

There once was a tractor that flew

Using science that no one else knew

The designers it's said

Wrote the rule in their head

And the poor competition were screwed

 

'Not to worry,' the billionaires said

We'll just throw money at it instead

But the boys that they picked

Couldn't pull off that trick

And the black boat wound up on its head.

There once was a tractor that flew

Using science that no one else knew

The designers it's said

Wrote the rule in their head

And the poor competition were screwed

'Not to worry,' the billionaires said

We'll just throw money at it instead

But the boys that they picked

Couldn't pull off that trick

And the black boat wound up on its head.

Must have been from all of that lead

Sailor X is only known to the crew

He and his mates are down minus 2

 

When asked why so shy?

He said fuck off and die

 

And that's Sir Sailor X to you!

Russell called the decision outrageous

His whining was quite contagious

Soon the www was abuzz

With how stunning it was

his charmlessness would amaze us

 

Larry bought up the best yachties

to beat Dalts and the Bertellis

but his pursuit of the cup

was all fucked up

by a couple of dodgy flunkies

Snark, where did you go to university?

 

Glasgow? Edinburgh?

Ernie was having a chuckle

Now that Oracle’s started to buckle

Convictions for cheating

And Russell’s sad bleating

Sympathy? I’d say I have fuckall!

Larry, your team’s struck a hitch

You can’t fix, no matter how rich

The Dalts clause has backfired

The result undesired

Looks like Karma is really a bitch

A week has gone by

and OTUSA is up 4 to nil

All the sheep are bleating

because they've taken a beating

by a faster boat accused of cheating

In matters of honour and trust

Well regarded used to be Russ

But trust has been broken

Accountability pure token

And crew has been thrown under the bus

What on earth are the things on the back

of the boat sailed by men dressed in black?

Are they air dams or wings,

or boxes for things?

It's clearly something the OR team lack.

In a cheating enquiry famous

The IJ pronounced not all were blameless

And for special effects

They placed a big X

On a man that must remain nameless

There was a man name Russell

Who always liked a good tussle

He liked Larry’s gold, or so we are told

He even won gold with boils on his arse

Shame his cup turned into such a farce

The racing has really been 'orrible,

Led by old Larry from Oracle,

He's high tech and meant well,

But oh bleeding hell,

They'd do better racing a coracle.

'Twas wings that won the thirty-third race.

Now better flight is the key for first place.

But the cheating has got

our knickers in a knot.

Will a win on the water save face?

My AC72 flopped in to the ocean,

I added lead to go fast at sea...

Spithill had better recover,

or New Zealand will return home happily....

in days of yore when king posts were poor

they could be fixed by the application of lead

but in today's world, the best remedy sold

is a little blue pill instead :)

Russell, a Kiwi laconic

Had a lust for the Cup that was chronic

He called Ernie a cheat

And full of deceit

Now thats looking fucking ironic

hahahaha!

Let's forget the spin

 

Its kiwis v the yanks

 

Will the kiwis win

 

Or will they fire blanks

 

 

 

 

Coutts is the man to beat

 

Barker has a lot to prove

 

Dalton thinks everything is "neat"

 

Larry ain't looking so Smooth.

 

 

 

 

 

Who has the faster cat

 

Who has the strongest gear

 

ETNZ know where it's at.

 

oracle will have no fear.

 

 

 

 

The course we know is to short

 

The wind limit way to low

 

Will this end in court

 

If one boat is to slow

 

 

 

 

Will gear failure dictate

 

Or will skill prevail

 

Dalton's crew relate

 

spitall's crew look pale.

 

 

 

 

 

eTNZ is in it to win it.

 

oracle scrambling to survive

 

Neck Minute

 

oracle win two and its alive!

 

 

 

 

 

Whatever the racing outcome

 

No matter which side you back

 

We will all enjoy a good rum

 

And know they all had a good crack!

 

 

 

 

 

And when all is done and dusted

 

The hangover has long past

 

Don't get to flustered

 

The next AC will be here Fast.

The IJ has issued it's ruling

And JS & RC are complaining

The skippers have met

Crushed their fingers, I bet

Thank f*ck we can get on with the racing

Well it seems that the grip of the nation

Is now linear hydraulic actuation

One teams angled an attack

Pitched at the others back

Will the jury recant regulation ?

Why are we waiting,

Jury meditating...

Oh, why are we waiting,

For a de-cis-ion.

 

Why are we waiting,
Could be bloody sailing,
Oh, why are we waiting?
Oh, why are we waiting?
Oh, why are we waiting,
So fucking long!

On Anarchy it is tempting to comment


back to posts which are possibly mismeant


it can quite raise the ire


of cantankerous choirs


who have somewhat different accents
