      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 for collating the great footage JN.

 

youtube does a fine job of mashing them up with all things sail boat. Make em into a playlist.

 

Why were they overstanding so much? I know of the famous SF bay area tides, but they seem to be not very much going siey-ways.?

1. You're welcome. It was a challenge shooting hand-held from a Protector.

2. Playlist: http://goo.gl/krzkvP

3. I think what you're seeing is windward boats trying to keep clear of leeward boats

and avoid deadly traffic jams at the offset mark, but they often still occurred!

Great stuff, yes what camera rig ? Can't wait to see those kinds of regattas with the VX One

 

Thank you. I'm shooting with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200, which features an outstanding Leica 25-600 mm (equivalent) super-zoom lens with active optical stabilization and fast f/2.8 speed over the entire zoom range, and is capable of high bitrate Full HD 1080p60 video in addition to great stills.

Good results from a compact package! Focus, sharpness and dynamic range all good

 

I am a bit suspicious that the f2.8 is through the whole optical zoom range though?

 

Very enjoyable viewing.

Thank you.

RAW shots in Manual mode confirm f/2.8 speed throughout the entire optical zoom range.

Look similar to the earlier mFT image qaulity from panasonic!

 

Nice in lens stabalisation i guess makes a big difference. Is the camera weather or splash proof?

 

Anyway obviously in the right hands- had a look at your stills for sale gallery in the bay area and you have great composition!

Thank you again. :)

The active in-lens optical stabilization is indeed essential for good results -- if I turn it off, results are dreadful.

It's not weather or splash proof, but It has shrugged off a fair number of splashes without ill effects, and the price is reasonable so it wouldn't be too painful to replace. I protect it in a weatherproof bag (Lowepro Rezo 110‑AW) as necessary.
