      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.

      Moderation Team Change   06/16/2017

      After fifteen years of volunteer moderation at SA, I will no longer be part of the moderation team. The decision to step aside is mine, and has been some time in the works but we did not wish to announce it in advance for a number of reasons. It's been fun, but I need my time back for other purposes now. The Underdawg admin account will not be monitored until further notice, as I will be relinquishing control of it along with my administrative privileges. Zapata will continue on as a moderator, and any concerns or issues can be directed to that account or to the Editor until further notice. Anyone interested in helping moderate the forums should reach out to Scot by sending a PM to the Editor account. Please note that I am not leaving the community, I am merely stepping aside from Admin responsibilities and privileges on the site.

Team Jack-A-Roe is planning on throwing some type of get-together (ie. drunken fiesta). We have a condo at the end of Star Line dock. Day and time not yet decided. Support crew will be there Saturday night. We can't see the finish line from the terrace, but you can sure hear the cannons.

4 night minimum (Sat-Tues), $425 a night. 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, full kitchen, dining and living room. Washer and dryer. Covered porch and the terrace shown. And a private elevator (ooh la la). We found this last year and immediately booked it for this year before anyone else got a look at it. We did have to crew-proof it a little bit and hide away any breakable furnishings!

I got two nights at the Murray for 134.00/night ("Historic One Queen Standard") by booking last year.

 

When I called in December to book for the P-H Mac, they had instilled a three night minimum. For one night, I'll stay on the boat... :(

Murray as well, I booked in December and they only had a few rooms left and there was the 3 night min but it was only about $220 a night for 2 queen bed room...

Is the Jack-A-Roe going to need a tow to Charlevoix again this year?... Maybe you can book our tow vessel early this year, and I'll have enough time to make up some additional sandwiches for the trip.

We hauled the crapola converted lawn mower engine and went with an outboard. Last year we motored overnight from Frankfort to Port Washington. Refueled and were home for last call at Columbia Saturday night. We'll always take an extra sandwich though.

Quote from a report of the 1998 race:

 

"In the PHRF fleet Bacchant, a classsic 75 square meter

Those are like two completely different boats. Wow - it'll be strange racing a mac without seeing that gorgeous wooden boat on the line. You'd think he would've waited to at least compete in the 100th running. ? Very classic boat. Hope it goes to a good home.

Comparing a MacGregor 65 to Merlin is like comparing a Pinto to a Ferrari.

 

A Mac 65 will burst into flames if you hit it from behind? Is that some kind of gay codespeak?

 

Alright, I'm doing the Mac with you guys on the sled. Both actually. Figured I'd start firing the shots now...

Gay codespeak? Although I don't think MacGregor ever introduced the a Mac 65 Cruising Wagon, I'd like to spend as much time on one as a Pinto.

 

Good, the boat needs a good head mechanic. RJ keeps falling down on the job.

I know I wasn't looking at the rating, In my Haste to post (friend was physically pulling me out of my chair) I was just looking at the LOA, Some of the boats names seemed odd and I didn't think they were Section One boats.

 

The rating for section one is generally anything above a 1.037, It just depends on the fleet.

Start praying for breeze. This could be a really great thing with all these big boats coming to town. Hopefully they have a good enough time that they will return for future races not ending with a '00'.

 

Edit: wow. what shitty sentence structure. i'm too lazy to rewrite it.

I will venture a guess, that anything rating over 1.1 will be in a turbo section.

 

Section 1 will boats that rate between 1.02 and 1.099.

Looking like a sweet line up. And I can only immagine more to come. I'm stoked. Are they really going to cut the entrys off? That would suck. I know logistics get tricky once your up there. Why not just offer the race sponsored dockage to a set # boats based on the time they entered. It's a slight deterant for late entries but better than getting denied from the party.....

In addition to the question of where will they put all those boats, I am wondering where they will put all the people. Rooms get scarce in a normal year...

What happened to "KarMitzvah" or "Flyswatter"

 

 

I heard the Flying Tiger 006, now named Gung Ho, got her invite today.

 

Go the Ho!

I know, I know.

Personally I prefer Flyswatter, but Sammy got Gung Ho from the Ken Burns film about the 2nd World War.

Apparently Gung Ho means "working together" in Chinese.

It has more of a communistic co-operative sense to the meaning than our semper fi do or die connotation.

 

Go the Ho!

The 'Turbo' section, in the past, has been reserved for boats that don't meet the requirements of 'traditional' race yachts. For example, before they created a Multi section, Steve Fossett raced ex-Starts & Stripes catamaran in Turbo section. Other examples of 'Turbo' boats are those using canting keels (Genuine Risk), water-ballast (Windquest) and, I would suspect, any boat that uses power winches.

 

I am not saying that is how it will be for 2008 but that is how it has been in the past.

 

Oh, and boats in the Turbo section are NOT elligible for the Mac Cup or Mac Trophy (Overall awards).

Stripes SC70 sailed (and won) the turbo class two years ago. Windquest was the only non traditional boat in the class that year.

Turbo boats are purely a ratings based decision and can include traditional keels. They are eligible for all honors and awards (and have been). There is not a hard rule for where the break is. Last year there were only about 3 boats that it would have made sense to split out and that is below the committees threshold for setting a section. There are certainly enough of the really fast this year to establish a turbo section.

 

There was one year ('01 or '02) where we put moveable ballast boats in a separate section. Only two boats and the committee abandoned that idea after one year. Ever since then they have been allowed to race as any other entry.

 

Fossett was in an exhibition class which was created primarily for multihulls, and later became the multihull division (i believe we made that change in 1998). THere was only one entry in the old exhibition division that was a monohull, Red Hornet in 1997.

 

ORR rates canting keels and thus they are allowed. Powered winches are only allowed if the OA allows it and we have only done that for cruising class boats.

Am I looking at the mac race entry correctly-it would appear that the "PP-2" entered this year is the old decision/pegasus the turbo'ed andrews 70 that went through katrina? If so it looks like another sled won owner lotto in terms of care/rehab. Looks to be an interesting year indeed if that is correct.....chicago crowd wish to chime in on this one?

We're planning on that. We probably won't due the IRC thing but the Regatta is fun. Plus, the kids will be with grandma in Bay View across the bay so it will be a little vacation before we bring the boat back south.

So, its 422 now out of 558 invitations issued. To me, that seems like a REAL high hit rate--76%!

No Bay Harbor this year. I think the 70s are doing a W/L regatta at Harbor Springs after Chi-Mac, and some will probably stay for the IRC championship. No idea which boats.

I think he charters that boat for the race. He used to own the J/35 Dark Star, has a Melgi now (I think) and is a fairly big wig in the Detroit area yacht club scene. At least when I was racing there he was. I can neither confirm or deny some people called his J/35 Dark Stain.

With 558 invites sent out, that number being about twice the average of boats that do the race, and with about 450 already entered, all joking aside, how does CYC plan to pull this off without some serious shit going down on and around the island? There seems not to be a cut-off number other than that 558 sent out.

Anyone involved care to shed some light on depth of logistics involved and gone over?
