      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.

Ullman audio cast

SA Audio

 

Ullman Speaks

 

Our second SA AudioCast was yesterday with Dave Ullman. If you know Dave, then you know what a good guy he is, and if you don't, you'll see, or rather hear it here. This one is fairly long, 30 minutes, and yet it doesn't cover nearly enough ground! We'll probably continue to do these in long form, but offer them in segments. We'd like to hear your comments on this one.

Very nicely done Mr Scot.

I thought it showed what Dave is truly like.

Cool, fun, humble and not at all unapproachable.

Dave really hits it on the nail with his comments on practice and new sails.

 

Maybe you could do another with:

Juan K?

ABN Skipper Sanderson?

Sailed against Dave last weekend. Dave is a great guy and awesome sailor. It was an excellent interview worth listening the whole way through. Wish there were more sailors like him.

 

Cheers!

Podcast instructions for newbies to get the sailing mustached Yoda onto your ipod....

 

right click the link to the file on the SA site.

 

click save file as or save link location as......

 

name it and save where you like on your system. The ullman interview is 28megs, this may take a while, the ed should work on cutting it down.....

 

Now you can listen on whatever media you like....................

 

Open itunes.com

 

Go on library than click file on upper left side of itunes and then in the drop down click add to library

 

Once the mp3 is in your library, you can right click it and add it to a playlist that goes to your ipod.

 

What i did in itunes, is creat a playlist called "sailing Podcasts".

 

Hook up your ipod. When the icon in Itunes shows up, right click, click options, and make sure that Sailing Podcasts" is checked for updating....this will send whatever sailing podcasts you have in that playlist.....

 

Enjoy!

Ed, man you're 2 for 2. This was as good as the last one. Two per month - can you keep it up? Thanks again for the effort. Ullman seemed as classy as I expected.

Dave Ullman is in a class all by himself. He spent 25 minutes with me at Key West answering alot of my questions regarding sail trim and what makes the Melges go. No one else would have taken the time to do this.

 

I hate to give the Ed credit for a job well done, his head is way to big already, but well done Ed!

Well thanks. I know a thing or two about entertaining content. Again, I'd like suggestions on who I should interview next.

Ed - Great stuff. The format has legs. We need more, more, more...

 

Additionally it would be amazing to get a debrief interview with Americans George Peet and/or Andrew Lewis from ABN II. I am sure many on SA would be interested to hear the reflections of these two amazing young sailors after a race where they experienced both the highest highs and lowest lows.

 

Loved the Mike Sanderson suggestion above too but would love to hear from Peet/Lewis first.

To stir the pot a little would be good to have "Screaming Dee Smith" do an interview. He has been around the block more than a few times and could give out some good info. It would be interesting to hear his point view on technical subjects, pro sailing and future of TP52 & the new GP class and find out if he's really the total dick everyone says he is.

 

Others:

 

Buddy Melges, he's a living legend and a great speaker

 

Dennis connor (edit: maybe not)

 

Bouwe Bekking on Movistar

 

Ed Baird on coaching and what sailors should work on.

 

Stan Honey on weather routing.

 

Olin Stephens: another living legend that would be great to listen to.

I've told the Ed that I have one with Bouwe from Baltimore that was OK although I sound like a flaming moron. It's interesting how the interview plays into what happened to them later.

 

I'll get it to him one of these days...

I agree on keeping the clips long. It is great to get into it. Little soundbites would be a real pain. Gotta say, I'd love to hear an interview with Mr. Alphabet on his crazy designs. Roy Disney on the Morning Light project would be some quality content as well.

How about an interview with the Pope--- He was @ LBRW sailing on his J-105 that he is partners on with Blair Francis.

I would like to listen to Gary Jobson on my way to work...

 

 

I thought it was excellent. On a whim I checked SA 5 minutes before I left for work and downloaded it to my iPod and listened to it in the car on the way there.

 

Only thing that dissappointed me was I didn't get to hear the last 8 minutes- for some reason it got cut off the end of the file...

Isler ain't gonna happen - he's boring. Besides, I don't like him.

Would really be interesting to get an idea about the whole financial end of sailing.

 

Dave brings up the financial interests to the boat builders and the sail makers, but what about the sponsors?

 

What about the Oracle sponsorship of the TP52? What are their budgets like? How do they handle the whole organizational details?

 

As for VOR, more information on the "race central" would be nice. Would be great to get interviews related to the organization of that race.

 

Personally I have no interest in hearing sailing stories, that just is just so - been-there-done-that. Anything related to the business side of things.

Yes - very very nice. Very cool guy. Do 'em as often as you can, and keep 'em long! Interesting little discussion about Dacron mains - definintely hooked my ear! There seems to be a resurgence of the white stuff if recent items on SA are a gauge. I guess it's not just polyester anymore!

Ditto!

 

One reason to see what Dee Smith has to say about such subjects while being a dick and still being able to run top end programs and advising america's cup teams.

 

Also others could be good:

 

Juan K

&

Mark Mills

 

A cool thing would to have an open discussion/debate between several guest in one interview about such subjects.

Alan Bond

 

As in recently incarcerated Australian business man of AC fame?

 

As far as I was aware he was a business man, not a sailor.

That was a great interview Scot. Dave Ullman is a class act and is always willing to answer questions to anyone that approaches him. He hit the nail on the head when he stated that you have to go and practice even at his experience in the game. Also about building the fleet it is important to recognize everyone from the first place boat to the last place boat and keep everyone involved and help each other as much as possible.

 

Good job

I'd like to second the Roy Disney idea, but I think you'd want to wait until after the August Trials. And dont just limit it to Disney, anyone on the production side of things would be cool, Robbie Haines for example.

A fun one to innerview live would be Dave Hulse.

 

Hulse is one of those guys that has really seen it all, and for sure is more fun to hear live.

My bad, you're right it's Olin Stephens.

 

 

 

But it would be cool if Ed could do an interview with Rod Stephens, now that would be a good interview.

Nice job.

 

Isn't Peter Isler a powerboater now?

 

How about Cat Stevens?

Banned from entry into USA as he is now rated as a terrorist.

Thanks Dave! You're a great spokesman for the sport. It's always fun to sail with or against you. Having you out on the water raises the bar and makes everyone better.
