      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.

South Facing Exposure-So Cal Midwinters

30 posts in this topic

A Gale warning is up for tomorrow (Friday, February 17th) for all SoCal Coastal waters. An unusually vigorous storm will create problems especially for some of the south or SE facing slips/anchorages here in SoCal tomorrow. If you have roller furling systems or canvas up, you might want to save yourself a bunch of money and go deal with those today ahead of what is expected to be some actual "WEATHER" here in the southland.

 

Cattle, Small houses, Refrigerators and Timber along with other floating debris may also create some navigational hazards in Long Beach harbor on Saturday.

 

You have been warned....

Midwinters is actually Saturday and Sunday, in my case, down at Mission Bay Yacht Club. Both Weather.com and Sailflow show rain in the morning, then clear Saturday afternoon and Sunday, and with light air.

 

Lets hope that Friday blows through, so that its not nukin' racing this weekend. 'Cause frankly, I'm getting way too old for that shit.

Light air on Sun with mixed up seas and swell running sounds like so much fun with 3 boats per class on the line for Newport.

The front is finally making some eastward pavement. Rain started about 90 minutes ago in Long Beach. Moderate at best. The "Good Stuff" should start coming ashore in the next 90 minutes depending on where you are on the coast from PV through San Clemente.

Gusting to 25kts here on Harbor Island in Dago, nicely sheltered to the South thank goodness. Bay looks ugly - wouldn't want a mooring ball off Shelter Island right about now.

Today will prove to be a relatively docile day on SoCal coastal waters except near squall lines which will be few and far between after sunrise.

 

Not really sure why racing has been canceled at many clubs. Wind speeds are mostly in the single digit range.

It was brutal out there! The umbrella on my patio was almost knocked over. Maybe I should have closed it.

 

Regardless, I'll be telling the tale of the Great Storm of '17 to my grandkids. If they stay in town, they'll be impressed.

Sea state was our course issue. Pretty good size west swell made for some fun surfing under the code 0 when the R/C pulled the plug. But, setting marks and holding station would not have been fun.

Some times you gotta cut the volunteer R/C a little slack.

Exactly. Though sometimes a really alternative could be used. The sport needs to stop chasing perfection in perfectly square lines and w/l courses. Nothing wrong with starting and finishing in some piece of flat water in the harbor.

I've been managing the Power Point program for the past few years to keep in the local scene and get a few kids coming out of the Junior's program into bigger boats.
