      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.

What Is It?

 

Seen in Valencia, the first one to properly identify this classic gets a shirt from UK Halsey Sails, the sponsor of this week's What Is It contest. Do you have a candidate for the contest? Send it in!

Not big enough for a J; only about 70-80 feet. looks to be timber, or a bloody expensive fake paint job. Too much freeboard for a Square Metre boat. Overhangs too big for an ocean racer of the era. Could it be a converted or cruising 12 metre from the 30's or 40's? Hmmmm?

The boat is actually called Velsheda, its a J-Class built in 1933. Built by C & N Gosport.

Any more questions?

The boat is actually not called Valsheda.

It is not a J-Class

It was not built by Camper and Nicholsons in Gosport in 1933

And no, No more questions.

About three weeks ago Valsheda was moored almost opposite this boat.

Valsheda has a blue hull and is a lot bigger.

Valsheda also does not fly a British ensign.

Any more questions?

You boys need to study up on your classic yacht designers, and the old rules.

 

Bacchant was a Square Meter rule boat from Scandinavia. They tend to have less freeboard, less weight and less sail area.

It doesn't look like a Meter boat (12, etc) much longer overhangs.

It does look like the international rule boats (J, P, M, R, etc) with those long bows, etc.

 

Very pretty anyway!

I think it's a Q. There was one here in Chicago for a long time, Hope. A couple of these were found a few years back in underground tunnels and sillos. I think they were German.

If you go to the Giles Martin Radget site and look at the classic yachts, superyachts etc., you can see its none of the boats listed there, not Velsheda and none of the others yet named on this thread.

 

There was another photographers site linked from the front page or maybe one of the forum threads a few weeks ago and this boat was on that site shown tied up at a quay. (there's a euro term for you)

 

I don't have time to look for the site, but if you want the shirt, find that site.

 

Good luck.

Simple. Its a Mac26X stretched to 100' and covered in mahagony. Close?

Not even....there's no outboard. Even a Mac26x in disguise couldn't look that good.

Not quite sure why people are still guessing when the correct answer was in post 19.

 

Sophie. Designed by Bruce King. Very pretty. Glad I don't have to look after the varnish.

I am late to the thread - winner already here. We viewed this boat on the dock in Valencia, what a treasure - it actually went out to spectate and looked like a train once it got going upwind.

Those lines remind me of this designer.

 

 

 

http://www.hoekdesign.com/

 

Hoek Design was a good idea, they have a project running with Holland Jachtbouw (http://www.hollandjachtbouw.nl/), the 62 metre schooner Athos. But that beast wouldn`t fit the picture. But indeed it might be one of their earlier projects, but the "owner" section on the websites are secured with a log-in. To bad. I`ll just pull on my sweaty stinky old shirt.

Though I'm way off, the raised cabin reminded me of Queen Mab.

As a question, and I don't think anyone has asked it yet,

What's she rate?

I might call it a 40-rater... as a guess.

Crap. I knew it was too good to be true! :huh:

 

 

There is also the possiblity the it is a Proper Noun and is the character of one of the cousins on the Adams Family television show! Or the name of a T-10 in the area.
