      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.

Word. Imagine how stoked they'd have been if they got all the space that my sponsors do.

You are both shameless whores. I'm proposing that No Worries volunteer for the finance committee at AYC. With an attitude like his, the sky's the limit for regattas.

 

Great job by both of you. I'll be worthless again today.

I will work some. The hard part is explaining the audio when I take a phone call.

 

Looks like 5-10 from the southwest and trending left. However, it's at 9-10 now at Thomas Point, which is more than it should be. Should be interesting, with a big flood tide.

 

Trust in the Amy. Terhune knows about this set of conditions too. Alas, he's hampered by the absence of lovely Katie.

Anyone have tide tables? Any current is going to really make this a tough day OTW.

 

 

 

um sailflow and annapolis yacht club, who ever said it was gonna be a strong flood please explain i must not be able to read tide tables since it looks like ebb all day

Tides on the Bay tend to be greatly influenced by the wind. The water was the lowest yesterday that I can remember recently. Therefore, if I were guessing, I'd guess hard flood.

I laugh when you guys talk about a lot of current there. We don't even think about it if it is under half a not here in the PNW. With up to 3-4 knots of current here half becomes like none.

Clean,

 

What is the wind like there now on the water?

 

Check here for Current Conditions out in the middle of the bay. Near where they are racing:

 

http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=TPLM2

 

CUrrent should not be much of an issue as the wind blew all of the water out of the bay & with no breeze the flow vs the ebb ... there will be less consequential tied effect. I think. :ph34r:

We're just headed to the boat now. No time to dick around, but here's what I sent the Ed last night after he'd gone to sleep. Links disappear in this formatting, sorry.

 

Chasing The Light

 

The 2008 Melges 24 North American Championship is shaping up to be a true battle of the titans. The boats ,may be a hell of a lot smaller than TP52s or IACCs, but the competition is “as tough as anything I've seen,” according to one America's Cup and Volvo veteran. Unsurprisingly, the biggest “golden boy” of them all is shining at the top of this heap – Terry Hutchinson now sits with a seven point lead over Olympian Gabrio Zandona on Joe Fly, with Chris “Opie” Larson just behind. That means locals in third and first place, with good reason; massive shifts and puffs all day. We saw boats on opposite tacks just 100 yards separated on the same course. Auto tacks, huge leads, and boats going from second to seventeenth in one leg – it was truly mayhem.

 

But it was nothing compared to the best parties at these events, which are thrown by Melges with the somewhat cheesy moniker “Melges Rocks!” Tonight's featured hot chick and overall lead holder Amy Ironmonger (amongst others) shaking her ass on the dance floor, and was punctuated by the sight of our own Anarchist “Quint” taking his shirt off and diving headfirst into the lobster tank at Philip's Seafood. Not only did this psycho (we love ya Mike!) jump into the 45 degree water, but he came up with a lobster in his teeth! Eddie Murphy, eat your heart out. “Goonie Goo Goo.”

 

Yesterday's leader, Dave Ullman, had a shocking final race along with a few other top dogs – though Full Throttle, Blu Moon, Simplicity, and 17 others had their radios on when they were called OCS. Ullman, along with quick Morgan Reeser didn't hear their call, and sailed the whole race only to be scored with maximum points. That shook up the standings hugely, but with only 7 races of a likely 12 run, and the quality of the fleet at what's perhaps an all time high, it's true that anything can happen.

 

If we had to grade this event at its midpoint, we'd give it a B+. The organizers have kicked some major ass, the venue is spectacular, the competition is ridiculous, the breeze has been there and as challenging as anyone could ask for, and the parties have already put Porto Cervo's lame attempt at fun to shame. Hell, even the IMCA has stepped up their game, with solid press releases and good pics since we slammed them the other day. Only one downside exists as far as we can see, and there's nothing Annapolites can do about the bitter cold – but it does suck! All we can say for Worlds next year is – you have to come, but bring every piece of clothing you own.

 

You can see every detail of the action of day 2 in what has become an insanely popular On-The-Water Anarchy report, and Day 3 is coming right at ya whether you're at school, in your office, or just screwing around at home. Check in often to see who's ahead, who's behind, and who's on their ears, right here on the thread. Yesterday's results are here.

Clean - Any breeze out there....Saw the E32 scoot by about fifteen minutes ago...

 

Blowing 6-8 on spa creek from the west...Afraid the bay is going to be a vacumm...especially as we aresupposedto hit 60-65 degrees once the sun gets a little higher...I suspect Jeff will keep you guys close to the mouth o fteh Severn again, maybe work a little more north??

Wind looks to be 3-5 G 6 from 260. Observations from the district's southern region show a left shift to 190 degrees and less breeze. Things get better tomorrow and Sunday.

 

Hey, at least there are no freeze warnings this AM.

I'll work on the white balance - this little thing has its limitations.

 

 

Dude you need to get Scot to pony up for a new camera before KWRW.

 

 

Great coverage! But the quality of the video leaves something to be desired.

 

Done.

I wish someone else made a significantly better camcorder that was waterproof, but they don't exist. Funnily enough, since the Ed bought us our little Sanyo more than a year ago, the same one has popped up in the hands of event press officer Justin Chisholm, owner of Sail22 Ed Furry, our own housemate Bora Gulari, and a lot of other people in this sport - journalists and otherwise. (btw, someone asked me who Ed was sailing with - it's Guy Mossman, Riot Act, in 43rd.

 

Remember something - while another camera could get better lighting or steadier shots, I'm limited to quality by my aircard upload speeds. I could shoot at twice the frames per second and twice the pixels with this camera, but that would mean 20 minutes or more per upload, and that would ruin this report.

 

This whole concept was only made possible as the 3G networks were built and integrated - and we've been waiting as the technology catches up to what we want to do. It shouldn't be long before we can do this much better for not much more cost.

 

I hear you man, didnt think about the fact it would take longer to upload larger videos. Like I said keep up the good work, kept me entertained at work all week.

 

Just think 5 years ago no one would of dreamed of this, who knows where we will be in another 5.

Wind direction is 190-210, and we're parked on the line, but actually just got swept back upwind - that's some current that will massively effect the teams today. Puffs to 10.

Funny story from this morning: You might remember the dig I took at North Sails on Wednesday for not being open at 7:30 PM for some needed kite repairs - well, their response showed quite a sense of humor, which we appreciate. Greg Fisher called me for a light bitching out this morning as well, and when I got to our press boat, I noticed the attached stapled to the bollard that sits next to our slip. Classic! North apparently just work faster than the rest, according to Greg, and they'd finished all their repair work on the night that Bora went to drop off a blown up NS kite there.

Do us a favor and check the current on a crab pot or the committee boat and then check on any freighter anchored in the Bay. There can be a big differential between the shore and deeper water.

Hike Bitches did indeed make it, and we lost two so we coulda taken you smurrf - sorry!

 

Listen: Remember we talked about some swag on offer from our great sponsors? Well, today (and tomorrow) are the days.

 

So, the first race we're giving away two shirts: One from Coral Reef and one from Eastport 32. The Wanker Line (according to Tom Weaver) is the line that you get when you fold the score sheet in half. The Anarchist who guesses the boat immediately above the wanker line, wins an Eastport 32 shirt. That's 23rd place.

 

The Coral Reef Sailing shirt will go to the Anarchist that guesses the Chileans finishing position.

 

Don't even think about doing it on this thread - go to the contest thread to make your guess and win your shizzle.

Wind is DOWN, and Hike Bitches and Tom see a big rightie coming out of the Severn. BTW, The IRC boats are finishing in the Severn, so we should have quite the spectacle here, assuming we have any wind the rest of the day.

PRO Jeff Borland "We're in a little bit of a rock and a hard place here, with some breeze off to the S, the J/105s over there are moving fine, but that's a long way and there's not much room over there." We may move just a bit toward the shore to get in the breeze over there, but we'll let you know."

it's so cute how they put a little wheel in the back for clean to play admiral with. all aboard!

 

is hanging out by the shrouds legal? see the 3-boat start no. 18 pic above.

As long as they're not using the shrouds to roll the boat, it's all good. I love that little wheel, too.

Don't see the IRC boats, but the solings are just to the West and the 105s are to the South. Pretty cool - I have my reservations about Annapolis at times, but man - what a place for watching sailboats.

WE need a new RC boat down here at SMSA. Tell Hike Bitches! to write Tom a check for it. I'll be up there this afternoon to help him bring it home. :P

Anyone who thinks we're a bunch of irresponsible bastards, take note: Hike, Bitches just saw a chunk of styrofoam on the water, Weaver chased it down, and Mer bent over the rail gratuitously to do our part to Save The Bay. Someone give us a cookie. RC stilll trying to get a line set...

We can just see the big IRC boats coming back along the Western Shore - for sure Vincitore, maybe Sjambok and Amanda Core all kites up and trucking.

Here's a video I just pulled from poop's thread. On board Speedboat. Not what we're gonna see here today :)

One more bit of sponsor pimpin' while we wait for this sluggish RC: Latis Yachting Solutions is offering 10% off any yacht transport that you book for the rest of the year up through KW - just mention On-The-Water Anarchy when you ask for a quote. Also, the discount for a full season's schedule is a full 15%.

 

Check 'em out.

Um, annapolis & eastport are on the western shore. I think you mean the eastern shore, right?

Yep, you're right. They're just past bloody point.
