      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

Anna T done

I've always been a believer in the 4 D's to accomplish a goal. Dream, Desire, Dedication, and Discipline. The Desire, Dedication, and the Discipline are what support the Dream and make it come true. Without one or more of these foundations, you can't accomplish the end goal, the Dream.

It is with a sad heart and tears in my eyes, that today I am announcing that I am retiring from Olympic sailing.

Anna is a hell of a sailor, athlete and person. She will kick ass at whatever she takes on next.

 

Good luck Anna!!

One of life's harshest lessons is that nothing lasts forever - you've succeeded way beyond most peoples dreams - feel proud & satisfied, not sad.

Bummer. Hell of an athlete.

 

I am told she has a new BF, and between that and her real love of the intensity of the Cross-fit competitions she is so deep in, sailing didn't stand a chance.

 

Good luck, Anna.

Interesting considering the article in the "new look" Sailing World that just came out. She mentions that she is based out of the sailing Mecca of Pittsburgh.

Congrats on an awesome career thus far!

 

Not the same boat, but same circle - I'm sure Maggie and Kristen will carry the torch! Chatted w/ Annie Haeger practicing 470 out of my home club a couple months ago too!

 

We've still got a pretty nice quiver of awesome women sailors...

She says she's not leaving sailing totally, which is great. Im sure her influence and knowledge will not be lost on the current olympic lot!

She's retired from "Olympic sailing". Not from sailing, and not from life itself, unlike the close friend that I've just escorted through a Stage 4 carcinoma diagnosis. So pardon the fuck out of me if I consider this bit of "news" about on par with the Kardashians changing clothes.

Amazing athlete. Best of luck to her in the crossfit world. I would bet she wins the next world games. She is just that good.

 

And she will leave us with an unforgettable set of sailing photographs.

Not too long ago our sailing club made her an honorary member. She sailed at our place as a youngster.

May she have fair winds and gently flowing seas.

Sure, we live in a time where people post information about their personal lives on the internet as if everyone cares: no this is not the a stage 4 carcinoma diagnosis nor is it a Kardashian update either.

 

SA is one place where this personal news about Anna T is interesting and people do care. I am looking forward to see where her sailing experience will lead her.
