      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.

JP Dick flips his MOD 70 !

24 posts in this topic

Bad day for Jean-Pierre Dick and Roland Jourdain, they capsized and the VIrbac Paprec MOD 70 has a broken mast. This means probably no Transat Jacques Vabre for them! :(

Also, Jean-Pierre hurt his back, hope it's not too serious.

Wow! Looked like the boat just popped up off of a wave right when a puff came through -- very unfortunate and hope JPD is OK.

 

Looked like they had time to blow the mainsheet - although scrambling "downhill" to get to the winch might have been a trick.

You can watch JP take a tumble right at the 40 second mark - that's a long way to the water ... he certainly doesn't seem to have an auto inflating PFD or really, any PDF for that matter.

 

What's really scary is that once the boat is fully turtled, the trampoline looks to be a good foot or more underwater. If you were clipped in, disoriented and wearing foulies and/or an auto-inflate PFD, sure looks like it would be game over.

If those crazy loner French Vendee Globe sailors can't get it right what hope do us mere mortals have..? Reckon it could be time for a fail safe mainsheet system cos when you get it wrong it becomes dangerous and costly, as we all know.

What is bizzare is you will see an options drop down menu> select move thread>press go>select original thread tick box>select duplicate thread tick box>press go>confirm you wish to move thread>voila something crazy stupid :P

Don't think they have any crew left onboard who know how to work the forum - hence the search being permanently fucked.

If im right , after the route du rhum 2002 , orma 60 had to implement a system that would release the sails if the boats heeled too much.

 

why is that system not on a MOD 70 is baffling.

Don't think it was ever implemented across the whole due to budgets or even if it was a fully automated system.

the electronic anti capsize system was in the process of being installed, just the wiring left to finish.... Shame it was a day too late. The boats did not come with this as standard because it is not needed with 6 onboard.

That's not precisely how this system works, but I specifically choose not to merge threads when they are posted in two different forums; instead I actually add a link so that people know there is more info...if I was as smart as you and joined them, I'd accomplish the opposite: removing something from one forum and potentially taking information away from interested eyes. See how it works?

The people in the cabin were journalists, along with some shore team, they were there to get the story not sail the boat. It was a training sail for Bilou and JP to prepare for the upcoming TJV.

 

The 6 onboard obviously refers to fully crewed sailing.

Can't remember where i saw it, but rumor was the Helo had a primary effect on the flip.

 

I was amazed after first watching the vid that a globe rounding tri like that could just flip in what appeared

relatively benign conditions. Then I heard of the helo involvment (allegedly) and it made much more sense.

 

anyone else hear the same??

Many anarchy experts here say rota wash was not a factor. JPD doesn't mention it either. I wonder.
