      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.

Results are up from day 2 of the sportboat saturday series, races 3 and 4! http://results.rqys.com.au/11sportsboatsat/series.htm Race 4 will change as peow was miles ahead again but for some reason there has been a timing glitch! Unless they did miss something! :blink:

 

Constant rain all day, about 15knots of wind and constant rain! Close racing for the selfrighting boats, the gaggle finishing places were allways decided on the last run! Having the finish in about 6 foot of water made it real interesting, with i think everyone smacking the bottom behind the line! 7 boats out there this time.

 

Was a good day, with the rain just making it interesting!

Overall results are now up from the sportboat saturday series weh had here in brisbane!

 

http://results.rqys.com.au/11sportsboatsat/series.htm

 

Last day light winds and shallow water, boats hitting bottom as crossing finish line made it interesting, and starts, couldnt go too low of the line and risk getting stuck!

 

Race 5 we got stuck on the bottom mark even though we were 8 feet off it (didnt protest :rolleyes: ) and the 30 footer miss judged the clearance top mark and had to reround, thats why results are a little out! Peow without the heavy weights on board still had the pace in the light breeze, but were closer!

 

Race 6, once the boats that took more than 2 boat lengths to drop a kite got off the mud, was light as well, bloody close race between the M24, Shaw, 30 footer and us! Nearly got to the finish before the shaw for a change but the 30 footer decided to get its shit together on the last run and blanket us which put pay to that! Big kite on that thing!

 

The bookies wouldnt accept any money on the final result, what with a M and Shaw there the writing was already on the wall! ;)

 

Well done to the Peow which had different skipper each race i think and the M24 which was 1st and 2nd!

 

Was a good event, bar the shallow bits, and starting the Sportboats last and with a little longer leg than the etchells and skiffs, contenders, hobie's and what ever else was out there worked well, didnt seam to go anywhere near the other fleets even though we all shared the same bottom gate!

 

Looking forward to doing it once a month for the whole next season if it happens!

OK - well maybe a baby Cookson 50 is a better description. It is a hell of a lot of boat for a 30-odd-footer. What will it race in and against? Good question.

Have always been a fan of alternate boats, for me its grin factor for bang factor. Orbit has a good equation. Looks like my racing career is going to be chasing 40+ footers in my super 30???, will just have to wait and see.

Congrats on the buy Matt; you've got yourself quite a weapon there so good luck on the steep bit of the learning curve.

Just a minor correction to your post. Rob Shaw has asked me to see if we can line up an Aus buyer for his sensational 9m "Karma Police" but she is still in Auckland NZ, not here in Melbourne.

Rob and I will both be at Airlie Beach Race Week, he on a Shaw 650, me on a (leadmine) X-35 so interested parties can form an orderly queue at the beer tent, there to commence meaningful negotiations.

Afternoon storm today, 70+ knots recorded at the coast guard near entrance of the harbour! Of course just as a 50+ wags fleet was comming in harbour! Perfect timing!

 

All crew ok, couple of boats with minor damage, glad we were just 50m from jetty when it started to hit, got real wet, and lost a nearly full can of Rum! <_<

Well, the time has arrived! The Barney Army clan are off on a big lap of this great country of ours! 126 days on the road, life is short and we have no time to loose! Looking forward to seeing the west coast and the kimberlies. Yeah I know it's not sailing oriented and I don't own a sporty anymore but I don't give a shit!

 

Anyone in Perth or Darwin want to take me for a sail?

Saturday was a lottery and rarely gusted above 2kts, nearly everyone had a turn at the front. Eventualy it was Attitude, As-If, Stay Tuned, Charlie, No Limits, Nervous, Wha-Ka, Twister, Transit Lounge, Rip it Up. On SMS it was Slippery Deck, Stay Tuned, As-If

 

Sunday was better, only 5kts to 8kts SW but at least it was constant. No limits broke away and won easily, Attiude ran aground before the finish so As-If was second followed by Transit Lounge, Stay Tuned, Attitude, Wha-Ka, Charlie, Slippery Deck, Nervous, Rip it Up and Twister. On SMS it was No Limits, As-If and Stay Tuned.

 

Overall SMS went to Stay Tuned from As-If and Slippery Deck.

 

The Leech 650 looked fast but just didn't get enough breeze.

 

Interestingly, if Nervous had a typical Elliot 7 SMS of under 0.780 they would have cleaned up. Oops - theyure're not a sportsboat anymore! :D

Made the fists steps this week - put As-If into an industrial shed ready for tidy-up and have cancelled the hardstand at RQ. Currently building a steel frame so we can lift it off the trailer and keel and wheel it around.

Have listed it on Boatpoint yesterday - so will see what interest we get.

 

When are you getting back into Sportsboats?

Well a beautiful day out on the bay today, with a potential buyer for a T7, now that his boat has been banned for eternity from sportboat races, but he wasnt prepared for the blinding speed of an old school, overweight non SMS rater under full flight in a non spinnaker race!

 

Well he is tucked into bed at the Manly hotel, safe from the prowling cougar bro's and wynnum chicks below in the beer garden!

 

He has had a double dose of Queensland cordial, fresh from the aged square bottle!

 

Have a good rest, and hope the heart rate is down to a normal level in the morning petal!

 

Night night Billy Goat!

 

Mwah ha ha ha ha ha

Not your T7 Turks?

 

 

Dont know yet!

 

Like most heavy boat owners, how long can one throw money at a boat within a system just to make the numbers up!

 

 

So Bill E, calmed down from sportboat excitement yet! The leap from sym boats to real sportboats is so huge, you can see why the E's were banned now hey! :rolleyes:

Boats that don't carry an Assymetric kite are banned. - That means E7's are banned.

 

However they have kindly said we can apply for an exemption to have the honour of racing with them for two years, we are still banned but allowed to play. I don't think a magic 25 with a symmetrical was granted the same don't know why.

 

I have to thanks Slapper for stopping me from considering a sportsboat in the future as they are really fast and scary to sail, As you can see I was TERRIFIED. I am now happy that the E7 better suits me as it is so slow and boring and more to what I am used to.

or a Runnals 8 with a symmetrical

or the S.A. Rockets with a symmetrical

 

appears to be No conspiracy at all.

 

now the Exemptions, consistency there too

 

Magic 25 has its OD design trapezes ..Exempted although disallowed in the regular asba fleet

Melges24 has its OD design hiking lines Exempted " " " " " " " " " " " " "

Elliott 7 has its OD design equipment.. Exempted " " " " " " " " " " " " "

 

does anyone know why goggles won't swap his t boat for an E ? the CBH of .835 he'd be able to sail up to that ?

Now why would i want an E7? If only exempted for as some say, for only 2 years? And as far as im aware, havnt been granted it yet! The T7's and rest of the heavy boats will be banned next!

 

Melges exemption hit is obviously too low as they win! Is it fair a boat with exemptions can beat boats that fit the rules fairly?

 

Magic not allowed to race in either form! Once again as far as i know they havnt been granted the exemption yet either!

 

Mabe GS you should get a new informer, or a boat that races in this fleet and with current trends all market values for boats not on the chosen ones list will be worthless real soon! Now that dosnt seam good for the fleets!

 

Exemption is good how? Well of course if you have the only chosen design with exemption that hasnt been hit hard!

Gob Shit - you must understand that getting a SMS rating doesn't get you into the exclusive ASBA club, unless they invite you and you aren't a threat.

 

The E7 has no problems getting an SMS rating, it is however not eligible to race in regatta's where the class is required to comply to the ASBA definitions.

 

If something is not banned why does it need an exemption

 

And WTF is this shit

 

Elliott 7 has its OD design equipment.. Exempted

and why wouldn't i understand that you potty mouthed cunt

 

and WTF is this shit "If something is not banned why does it need an exemption"

of course the symmetric is banned, thats the topic, concentrate Bill E

now

- you can race OD,

- you can race TYa,

- and if you want you can race Sportsboat assoc.

- that's three (3) times the events of most other trailables

Haven't you got something more important to whinge & fuck on about than being eligible to race wherever - whenever you want

and .. you know damn well that the 'vote'* was not aimed at E7s

*tell us about your vote Bill E, the proxy of yours whilst not being in the association and eligible to vote

.... We had a fantastic regatta, with close racing by a great group of people that are all keen to help each other out.

We don't give a fuck about the increasingly irrevalent ASBA

take your bat & ball mate, hasta la vista

you want to resort to namecalling & personal you whining dumb fuck?

 

how on earth your better half put up with ur snivelling & moaning for so long is anyones guess hey

------------------------

NOT that this affects your Sym. T7 in any way whatsoever ... ( yes just one more opportunity. for you to moan & shitstir on the forums)

 

your post in question was so full of erroneous '?facts?" it wasn't worth the reply which was just mud wrestling with a pig basically

 

You questioned my 'informer or information YET you haven't even read, or are vaguely familiar with the eligibilty/ exemption clauses,

you said that the OD magic is ineligible but is has been for years, there is one on the SMS listing

 

of course 'being aware' would not be in your interests, that being moaning like a fuck about all & sundry that does NOT affect your program

Ha ha ha name calling, what was it, and personal attacks? But you feel its ok to bring up peoples failed marriges!

 

Red Hot!

 

Why would i read all that stuff, no interest hey :rolleyes:

 

You should race on and against these boats, as often as we do up here, you to with all your worldly wisdom will see the differences as has been posted here in the past! Shit if i can see it!

 

I know you are alluding to the fact we are shit sailors, but we enjoy licking windows and still go out there and compete and have a ball each race, but the novelty of spending the money as others do but for a shit result is wearing off!

 

Mabe you could sponsor/coach us GS ? Im sure it would be rewarding!

Will be in Perth about early August

There are 2 sports boat races at SoPYC during August.

The first is on Sunday the 5th, the second on Sunday the 18th.

We are a little early, currently camped at Cliff head about 20 kms south of Dongara. Meeting a mate at a NP just north of Perth Friday Night. Will be in town Sunday sometime. The west coast is an amazing part of the Australian coastline. A must do/ see in my eyes. Looking forward to the South West scenery, not the temperatures.

I gotta say you are mental to sail in this weather. With a max of low teens, rain and effing windy you can shove this part of the world where the sun don't shine. Mind you the scenery, speccy. I have never had so many hot drinks in my life, oh and the rum always seems to be empty. Gimme the sunshine state anyday.
