      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.

Multis in Lauderdale to Key West Race

11 posts in this topic

Ok so place your bets on how the multis do against some of the highly touted monos this year. Following with interest as next year this event might be the first offshore event for the Dragonfly 32 arriving this summer. I'm betting on Tom Reese with Flight Simulator- Corsair 28R- to buzz the big boys.

What Dragonfly?

 

Scratch sheets shows only a Corsair, a second modified Corsair and a Catana.

 

Whatever happened to that big (red/orange??) Farrier that was tuning up down that way a year or so back before it got hit by lightening. I thought they wanted to race it here. Actually I don't think I have ever heard of it racing anywhere??

Tom resse has a great boat and a great crew, with the forecast the way it is though cheeky is going to be the faster boat if they can keep the boat under control.

Hey Wess- the Dragonfly 32 is arriving this summer. Meaning it hasn't been built yet.

This race has been on my bucket list for a while.

Hi X squared.

 

Sorry, I missed the "next year" part of the statement, reading too quickly.

 

I gotta get down there myself one of these days.

Race makes sense as a Key West RW fun feeder race but if you don't have a class at KW then maybe not as sensible? I recall sometime back the F boats had a class(es) at KWRW. what happened to that?

There used to be OD 28s at KWRW and then in 2011 it was a PHRF fleet and then they said they are going from 3 circles to 2 and that the mulitihull circle was the one that was cut.

That's a real shame. Maybe in the future multis will return.

I think the best bet for a return of a multihull O.D. Class at KWRW would be a Corsair Sprint 750 mk-II class. It's an awesome little 3 man boat, that's only a tad bit slower than the 28R.

 

Cheers!!!

Well see about that in the future. This year there is a 750 class at the Cherry Pie Regatta going on Feb 7-9 with 7 boats in class and then another 11 boats in the open fleet.
