      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.

Haven't seen this reported on here, if it has, appologies, but..

 

The boys on Hot Ticket had a HELL of a ride from Galveston Bay! Let's just say it involves: gales, dropping a rudder, 4" hole, coasties, cutters and helicopters.

 

You can follow the adventure here.

I'm with you, BP. Bad ass little boats and psychotic sailors, all of them. Looking forward to seeing the class build here in the States. My gal did the KWR with Andy on Pheonix. Now I have to build a boat for her to go race on her own. There are a few more of us that will be getting into the short-handed, little boat ocean racing in the near future.

Is anything good coming out of the Premiere blog? I'd love to know if there's something interesting happening on the other courses.

Division 1 - Farr 40, Melges 32, M 30

 

Reporter: Susan Burnside

 

1507H: Sun's coming out. The Melges 32s are about 5 minutes from the gate.

 

1503H: Leading Farr 40s are now approaching the gate. Breeze is about 12 knots now. It looks like Twins will be the first to the gate followed by Mascalzone Latino and then Nerone. Very close fleet at the gate.

 

 

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

 

 

Division 2 - IRC 1, Swan 42, PHRF 1, IRC 2, PHRF 2

 

1453H: OK--- Up top I go to finish the fleet with the scorers----- will be back as time permits--- Conditions are still fabulous----------

 

1450H: Numbers is around the final top mark heading back to the finish. We are setting up to finish most of the fleet before we post a warning signal for race 2 today (race 5 in the series)--- We anticipate setting a 5 leg course with a windward finish--- be back in a few

 

1446H: Beautiful flat water sailing conditions with a fair test for the fleet---- a welcome relief--- who whud-da thought!

 

1444H: In PH1 the J125 is through the gate with an approx. 90 second lead over the bright orange Farr 36.

 

Wairere is the next boat about 20 seconds after that.

 

1442H: IRC1 and the Swan 42's are through the gate--- no course change as the breeze is steady in direction and velocity. We anticipate starting the IRC1 and Swan 42's while we are finishing the other 3 classes so we can get 2 races in today.

 

1432H: PH2 Off with 3 boats OCS who all re-started. All competitors on Div 2 are no racing-- Pics coming over.

 

1428H: Breeze is up to 12kts in the puffs---- wind direction 325 - 335

 

1427H: IRC2 is now racing-- Le Renard (Farr 40) OCS -- returned right away and is on the course.

 

1421H: PH 1 off and all clear--- 2 more starts and I will send in some nice pics---

 

1413H: IRC 1 is on the track-- 3 boats OCS- Crackers, Russal and Mayhem--- all re-started and proceeding up the first weather leg in a nice 8 knot breeze.

 

The Swan 42' are off clean in a well contested start with the entire fleet on the line Farr 40 style---- conditions right now are fantastic---- better than expected mopre breeze coming in.

 

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

 

 

Division 3 - Melges 24, J/105, J/80

 

1458H: The Heli is hovering over the gate for a photo session. RC adjusted the weather mark for the second upwind leg . There is a Cruise ship coming in the channel, haven't seen the Navy's F18s yet today

 

1446H: The J80s are off and running ... Individual Recall !!! (what's new?) Melges class is already half way down the course to the leeward gate. Breeze is 12-14 now. We are going for 2 races

 

1435H: X-ray is still up .... J105 class warning in one minute. Where did the Sun go? J105s are all in the starting box and ready to go ... Individual Recall !!! Eager Beavers on the water today. X-ray is still up ???

 

1422H: We are in sequence now with "i" flag prep signal. Hopefully the center line boat will survive the Melges start. ... And they are off .... Individual Recall !!!

Here is PR's version of this division/fleet

 

1515H: 156 corsair is coming down!

 

1509H: Corsairs are on their 5th leg and flying.

 

Rumblefisch did show up!

 

1505H: The R flag is flying. The winds are swinging around, but holding to the course. Winds are up to about 10-12

 

1500H: All started. Alll OCS came back. Phrf B - 49,24,50484 jumped, all others clear.

 

Corsairs had their first rounding.

 

1418H: The bearing is being set up for 340 so the gate is moving. The pin is being dropped. We are definitely preparing for a start. AP is coming down at 14:24. All boats are here, but Rumblefisch seems to be really late today.

 

1413H: Gate being set for 345. Wind is filling and stabilizing here at the signal boat.

 

1410H: We are seeing winds from 330 to 350 at the wind end and 00 - 015 at the gate.

 

Wind is holding at 5-7

 

1406H: The wind is not steady. Going from 030 to 370. Still in postponement to stabilize direction.

 

1405H: We are seeing puffs clocking to the left side. Seeing winds in the 7's.

 

1359H: May lower AP as soon as 14:09

 

The wind filling in from the other courses is heading our way!

 

1356H: We are some seeing wind here, but flat to shore where we would send them. Not falling for the sucker wind.

 

What we do get is 320 with little variation.

 

1350H: Caribbean Soul 2 is doing a little swimming. Or are they doing an extra scrub on the bottom?

 

1347H: Hot Stuff is the boat doing some fishing. Not catching much. SA Relentless boat has come by for a chat. They report the wind is multiple miles away. We are seeing 340 at less than 3 at weather 1.

 

1337H: One of the boats put out a fishing line. Check my photos to see if you can identify. Sending them in now.

 

Event Blogger Question...do they have a fishing permit???

 

1331H: 1:30 - we have gone into postponement. Too much sun; not enough wind.

 

1317H: At our wind axis of 320 the wind is dying on the course to flat water. The sun is causing the wind to go left and drop.

 

1304H: Course board:

A B-D E

6 4 4

1.0 1.3 1.0

 

1303H: Announcement: Day 4 - 40 minutes ago 320 at 8k, now shifted left and dropped. If conditions are good, we will start sequence at 13:30.

 

1256H: The first boats to show were One Up and Magic. Our last starters are raring to go!

 

1253H:

 

Location:

24 30.701

81 43.922

 

1239H: We have yet to anchor but boats are finding us. The slight current should keep the boats back a little, but they will quickly adjust and be pushing the line as always.

 

1236H: The RC signal is hanging around a little over a mile southeast of where we were yesterday.

 

1224H: The winds and a PRO are in agreement to have two races. Slight oscillations. A little current going east.

 

1213H: Weather - 330, 7-8k, and 340 at 6k across our course. Sounds like a race to me!

 

1202H: The Division 4 RC is heading out. Cloudy with humidity mists. No waves.

 

1000H: Today is Lewmar day. They have a great new winch handle. I call it the Grab and Go. It is currently available as 10", but the 8" will be available at West Marine this week. I got to play with this handle at the Annapolis Boat show in Sept and I could not get it to fail. Being a smaller person and always having trouble with locking ones my boat owner has promised me an 8" for this season!

We're just getting the last finishes, and rolling at top speed to the M-24s. Stay tuned for more video, pics and fun. Go see http://www.sailboatspecialists.com/ and let the site speed up a bit for us. Thanks, guys.

 

Hey Fetzer, why don't you tell the group about your new boat?

PICS ARE POSTED

 

Remember that we'll have full galleries with hundreds of pics for you later. Do us a favor - if you know people who would appreciate the pics, send them to the thread. You're welcome to pull them for your own use, but we want to keep this reporting free for you, and the key to that is for our sponsors to see how much interest this stuff generates.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

 

 

Just getting to the top mark, Melges 24s are on their first leg, GREAT TIMING!

Wind is only 9-10 here, just a hint of whitecaps. Non planing conditions.

The sun is out, the wind is moderate, and it's just too good over here. Turned out to be a perfect day. The photo boats are brawling with each other all trying to get the best shots, there must be 30 freelancers here, plus the official photogs. Fucking funny. We're annoying to all of them since we've got a 43' boat with a flybridge and tower.

Just noticed the Tripp 33 is sailing with a masthead kite. Was he rigged that way last year?

We've got the J/80s coming in now. If the Race Committee is on their shit, they will set a windward finish 5 legger, since home is to windward. That will be awesome.

 

Starlight, Jeff Ecklund's dad's boat, is up here hanging out. Gorgeous boat - that's the one on which buddy melges pinched Mer's friend's ass at worlds in Key Largo

New WW markset about .3 miles to the right, and Starlight is set up for a windward finish after that. 3 more legs, Melgi coming in now.
