      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.

Right now Velocity is not planning on KWRW but we are planning to go to CRW, Annapolis NOOD, A2N, BI/Worlds/NYYC/etc next year. We're waiting to hear on the timing for Worlds so we can line the rest of the series up.

J/111 Worlds- June 17-20- Newport, RI. Host t.b.d. The Worlds are one week after New York YC Regatta and the week before Storm Trysail Club's Block Island Race Week. So, could sail for three straight weeks of J/111 one-design racing!

shouldn't need 8 boats for a od start - especially when KWRW has had od starts for less

6 boats should be plenty or the owners should pressure them to make sure they get a OD start

Agree, I will contact them . It is important that as a Fleet we decide to sail in OD trim, weight and pro allowance .

I contacted 2 of the teams plus our team and we all want the OD trim . I do not have all the other contacts yet .

So far My Sharona Wooton and Spaceman Spiff is in on OD a

Wicked is on this thread so may chime in. The 111's have all rated different in previous years

And then there were 7. How about one from Europe to make it interesting?

 

I think some of the UK/French boats are looking into the worlds in Newport.

To try to do both may be tough for an amateur crew :-)

Heard KWRW was strong for 111's.

 

New boat crew DarkHorse (hull #59) is planning on racing in NYYC and World's in Newport.

 

Would also like to get a OD start at NOOD's Annapolis if we can get more boats.... Any other 111's interested ?

There's Velocity, Bad Cat, Cour de Leon and a new addition (Dark Horse?) on the Chesapeake.

 

Velocity would like to race in the NOODs if we can get a class start.

We have a conflict on the worlds with the skipper's son getting married that week end so it may change our racing schedule. When is Nap noods, it is usually too close to Charleston week .

Fireball moved out of the area after the 2013 season, I think it's up in LIS now.

Annapolis NOODs are May 1-3, two weeks after CRW. If you need logistical support to get to Annapolis or for things like lodging or marine services let me know and I can get the ball rolling on getting you help. Same for any 111's interested in coming to the NOODs!

The J/111s saw Pensacola, Florida skipper George Gamble steer MY SHARONA to a wire-to-wire victory. Quantum pro Scott Nixon called tactics on MY SHARONA, which displayed superb boat speed in all conditions in winning five races and placing second or third in four others. After a slow start, the 2014 Key West Race Week winner, Rob Ruhlman’s SPACEMAN SPIFF, closed strongly to take second overall for the regatta. Third was Brad Faber’s UTAH. Early regatta leader, Bob Hesse’s LAKE EFFECT, sailed consistently to take fourth and lying fifth was William Smith’s WOOTON.

Nice reading about the KWRW goings on. Sounds like a great way to start the season. What is everyone's perspective on the Charleston leg..... Have heard there is an +1hour motor to start line... Good event? Glad to hear momentum is building for a 111 start at the Annap NOODs. DarkHorse crew is readying to racing the Annap NOOD, NYYC regatta, and Worlds. Velocity, Bad Cat, Cour de Leon and DarkHorse make 4 in the Bay.

I do not think the 1 hour motoring to race course should be an issue . We have 7 boats on the line , there is still time for others to make the trip

Charleston is a great event, well worth attending. The commute to the offshore race course isn't bad at all although you do get back to the dock (and the party) later than the sport boats.

 

We would love to see a J/111 class at the NOODs this year in Annapolis. So far two boats are signed up, Velocity (local) and My Sharona is coming up from Florida via Charleston as well. It would be great to see more of the 111's stop in Annapolis on their way up to the Worlds from CRW!

It has been a long season for us and due to work we can not consider Nap town NOODS . I like Annapolis and sailed there few times in couple of Noods and a J 105 NA with 70 boats .

looks like a tough new competitor in the J111 class... based on some of his other racing experience I'd expect him to be fast out of the gate. :ph34r:
