      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.

A couple of little administrative things for y'all:

 

1) For easier viewing, go to your "my controls" link on the top right corner of the screen, and change your "board settings" for "number of posts per page" to 25 or so. With the size of the photos and videos we show you, a hundred people clicking "refresh" at the same time can sometimes make things a bit slow. It's saturday so it may not be so bad, but it's also December and I know a lot of you will be at your screens.

 

2) You need to register! Registered members can see all the thumbnails, all the videos, and you can send me or anyone else Private Messages. It makes our report look a lot better, and makes you part of the action.

 

3) Help us out! The reason these reports are so fun are because of you! If you're hanging around, add something to the conversation - weather, local knowledge, something about one of the teams or sailors, something about the 20 junior sailors that will be out there today...be part of it! Best informational post wins something from Point Loma Outfitting!

Official Release:

 

Jim Swartz Takes The Lead At The Melges 32 Gold Cup

 

6 December 2008

 

Jim Swartz (Edgartown, N.Y.) on USA-007 Q, along side of tactician Gavin Brady and crew of Ben Beer, Jamie Gale, Tim Klein, Erik Doyle and Sarah Callahan played a great game of tack and jibe at the 2008 Melges 32 Gold Cup Regatta hosted by the Lauderdale Yacht Club in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. to take the lead with 14 points. His scoreline places him in the top spot on countback of John Kilroy's (San Francisco, Calif.) USA-13131 Samba Pa Ti with America's Cup sailor Terry Hutchinson calling tactics and crew of Eric Arndt, Eric Dorman, Justin Smart, Alan Nakanishi, Morgan Trubovich and Shana Phelan, also with 14 points. In third overall is Carlo Alberini (Pesaro, Italy) on ITA-186 Calvi Network with one of Italy's finest tacticians — Gabriele Benussi. Three great races were delivered.

 

Race one got underway on time with beautiful blue skies, light air conditions out of the east at 5-10 mph, warm temperatures, manageable seas and glorious Florida sunshine. This race was key for Swartz as it was his best result of the day. With a really nice jump off the starting line, he rounded the windward mark in first. Taking charge of second place was long-time class veteran Edward Tillinghast on USA-151 Dark n'Stormy. In third was another group of extraordinary sailors Marty Kullman and Mike Carroll (Clearwater, Fla.) on USA-131 New Wave. Once out front, Swartz stayed out front and gradually extended his lead to take the win. Kip Meadows (Rocky Mount, N.C.) on USA-77 Roxanne had a fantastic race taking second followed by Kullman/Carroll in third.

 

The second race of the day produced an aggressive start resulting in some great advances for several teams and set backs for others. Stephen Pugh (Sausalito, Calif.) on USA-158 Taboo and Savino Formentini (Italy) on MON-1999 Bitipi were among those called over early. Alberini, Jeff Ecklund (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) on USA-32 STAR and Kilroy in contrast had great starts. Storming the windward mark was Alberini, beating Ecklund to the punch, followed by Tillinghast. Downwind Alberini pulled ahead by a considerable margin, Ecklund desperately trying to catch up held on to second as they passed through the leeward gate. Back upwind the breeze remained light and shifty. Ecklund put into high gear taking the lead. Alberini fumbled the set making way for Kilroy to jump into second position. For the finish, reigning National Champion Eckund with Harry Melges on tactics appeared to be much happier with their second race performance with the win. Kilroy held on to second. Alberini settled for third.

 

For the final race of the day a course bearing of due east and breeze increasing ever so slightly, the first start resulted in a general recall. The second start was clean with Ecklund punching off the line as did Kullman/Carroll and Kilroy. At the top mark Kullman eventually got the best of Alberini following a heated race to the mark. Kilroy rounding in third. Kullman/Caroll had enough speed that they held on to the lead to take the win. Alberini and Kilroy were left to dual for second position and take the battle to the finish with Alberini ultimately getting the upper hand. It was ditto for fourth and fifth places. Woods and LYC's John Taylor (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) on USA-1315 Ninkasi vied for position at the finish line with Woods taking fourth. Taylor settled for fifth.

 

Saturday's racing not only will spawn continued great competition and feature the highlights of the regatta — Take A Junior Sailing Day! Some of America's best will have the chance of a lifetime to sail with the world's best.

01.) Jim Swartz, Q; 1-6-7 = 14

Melges 32 – Pick 'Em

 

Yesterday's racing at the 2008 Melges Gold Cup was a story of ups and downs. The light wannabe Trades varied constantly from 5-9 knots, meaning endless gear-changing and lots of work for tacticians and trimmers.

 

Jim Schwarz's Q stayed committed to the left all day, and it obviously paid with Q (Gavin Brady, tactician) leading the regatta. Q launched off the pin in each of three races, and even where the pressure was on the right, the shifts up the course equalized things enough for Brady's left calls to pay.

 

Breathing down Brady's neck is Samba Pa Ti, our pick for the regatta win. Kilroy, with T Hutch calling the shots as usual, is tied with Schwarz, though only Hutch's hawk eyes have made that possible. Let me explain: Calvi was easily in second in the second race today at the final windward mark, but owner Calvo Alberini got too close to the offset mark and brushed it lightly with the kite. The team initially made no move to drop their kite for a penalty turn, yet Hutch (who we've heard has a 400mm zoom lens grafted into his optical nerve) saw the contact from a long way back, and he slammed his hands together and screamed “CONTACT! PROTEST!” at the Italians in his booming voice (we've also heard he has a 1000 watt amplifier implanted in his voice box). Calvi dropped their kite and spun in a lull, getting rolled by Samba in the process. Samba and Q lead Calvi by one point. “There was no way they were going to spin,” Hutch told me. You can watch the whole sequence on camera right here.

 

The almost totally amateur New Wave holds a strong fourth place spot, with only Scott Nixon with pro status on board, while the only completely Corinthian entry, Argo, is having a rough regatta despite showing plenty of speed to keep up with the top boats at other events this year.

 

Our live coverage of the event begins at 11:00 EDT, and today's racing presents a nice opportunity for us – with each boat carrying a Lauderdale Yacht Club junior sailor on board. A great program to inspire young sailors, as described in this interview with Class President and regatta organizer Jeff Ecklund.

 

We're also going to send Mr. Clean into the water today to shoot some of the action at the top mark from underwater. He'll get some great video footage, or he'll be sliced open by a rudder, or maybe eaten by one of the many bull sharks here – either way, good times for all!

Thanks Clean for bringing us another round of OTW Anarchy. Especially enjoyed the Ecklund and Ullman interviews.

 

Dave Ullman's comments on programs downsizing in the current economic environment made me wonder what Jim Swartz's plans are for the Moneypenny program...If you get a chance to speak with him, I think it would be interesting to get his take on the state of "big boat" sailing.

Will do, BJ. We are on station! While it looked like more breeze inside, it was just a funneling effect down the ICW. Wind as read by our little Speedmate is 6.2 knots, 185 degrees.

You know we used to hear that singing when we sailed the boat and always thought it was coming from the rig. The shrouds have those rubber vortex inhibitors or whatever thay're called. I wonder if the hull transfer that sounds in to the water?

The Melges 20 demo boat sang too --- I thought it was the rig but Andy said that it's the foil. Was really only on one tack. I think it might have something to do with how the kelp cutter sits in the leading edge.

I gotta say - yesterday was Mer's first day with the brand new Canon 50 D that we bought her up in NY last week, and she had the setting all fucked up. Today she got it right, and her work is blowing me away. Am I biased? Sure. But her shots are every bit as good as Sharon's...

For those who are interested, she's using a 70-200 f2.8 IS L series lens, shooting at ISO 100, usually around f7, shooting aperture priority, trying to keep the speed above 1/800.

There's a little-known site called SailGroove, one of the principals of which has spammed this forum repeatedly, so I don't have much love for them - but Chris Love is the guy that blogs and films regattas, and he's a good dude trying to learn to do something that we've mastered. To him, I'm news. I'm even leaving in their spam link at the bottom of the vid.

Someday Vegas, you will actually say something insightful and I will sit back and say YAHOO!

Why does YachtScoring show STAR as being DSQ'd in the 6 th race? What happened? It looked like Star had a great race on the vids...http://yachtscoring.com/event_results_cumulative.cfm?eID=227

General recall! And we got a nice tit shot from our old friend Amy sailing the M20 with Andy.

 

Cleans & Crew -- awesome job out there ~

 

Thanks for getting me onto that Melges 20 today to see the race

action - we had a blast!

 

(and thanks to Digital Vibrations for the heads up about this fun opportunity :))

 

Andy, President of Melges, was our personal coach all day long -

the Melges 20 is *the perfect* day racer/daysailing boat --

especially to single or double-hand -- between 18-24' I've sailed,

comparing my experience on the Ideal 18, the U20,

and the Martin 242. This boat has a super smart setup,

is super quick, and has an extremely light touch to the helm.

(I can write more about today's sailing on this Melges 20 prototype

boat on a separate thread)

 

Heyyy...re: the "tit shot" -- clarification: Bikini Top shot!!! :P

 

.........and, er...long-time friend...... ;):P

Star was thrown out for not giving New Wave room to tack for a starboard tack boat at the top mark of Race 4. Bitipi was on the starboard tack layline, while Star and New Wave were coming in on port. New Wave tacked to leeward of Bitipi, Bitipi altered course and protested New Wave. New Wave protested Star for failing to give them room to tack for the obstruction, Star got tossed.

 

'That's sailboat racing," said a Star crew.

Thanks Clean for the update.

 

Great job ALL around too....the videos are really good, and the in-water filming was awesome.

 

Especially great to watch from up here in COLD Chicago! :(

Our entire team wants to thank all of your for reading this report so religiously and thoroughly. We do our best to bring you the flavor and action from these events, and the number of you who commit to sitting and reading through the entire thing - even on a weekend - is just awesome.

 

We also want to thank you for the thousands of hits to our advertisers' websites and the emails and comments you've sent to us and to them. When you let Tom Carruthers (PLO), John Woodruff (Latis), or Filippo Bovio (SLAM) know that you appreciate their support of OTW Anarchy, it justifies the time, money, and freebies that they spend on these events. If you haven't done it yet, and whether you actually buy something from them or just familiarize yourselves with their products, please spend a few minutes on each of our supporters' websites. We're just getting our Key West production together now, and every hit they get will help them to see OTW Anarchy as the best bang for their advertising dollar there is.

 

We are going to try some new things at this year's Key West Race Week, and we need happy sponsors to make them happen. Please help us keep OTW Anarchy at the cutting edge of regatta reporting. And thanks.

 

P.S. Mer is working on her sailor chick shots from the event tonight - including a Sailor Chick of the Week - so check back later.
