      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.

Jonathan always has been and continues to be a class act in the sport. Both he and his brother Charlie keep raising the bar and showing the rest of us how it is done. He's humble and dedicated while showing extreme talent in just about every class he enters- AC to Volvo and 470 to Tasar. He sails with something rare in Key West and in most regattas- integrity. Go Jonathan and UKA UKA!

Spot on ML!

 

You beat me to it.

 

Both and Jonathan & Charlie are class acts that bring a lot to any class, program or boat they are involved in. They also give back a ton - especially to the young and up & coming.

 

And although it's been a few years - they are great guys to sail "with". Level headed, non-excitable, get the job done kind of guys - my kind of people. I'd sail with either of them again in a nano second.

 

Oh, and Charlie has a promising career as a stand up comedian is he ever gives up sailboat racing! ;):lol:

 

Go Team Uka Uka and JMkee!!!

Clean,

Out of all the coverage out there you actually give good interviews about what people want to hear. Better than hearing jobson talk about himself or Tucker mumbling around the cock in his mouth. Thanks looking forward to another day back on the fun course! To you and your crew, keep it up!

From the North report:

 

OVERVIEW SYNOPSIS: High pressure, building southeast into northern Florida, dominated the conditions yesterday. As a result the N’ly to NE’ly winds lasted through the day, staying in the forecasted range for wind speeds. The direction was a little more challenging, with the winds generally a little more right shifted than expected and large oscillations through the day.

 

For today, the same area of high pressure will remain the driving force for the winds. The NNE’ly to NE’ly pressure gradient around the southeastern periphery of the high will make for a continued right shift today, and the expanding high will make for a slight decrease in the pressure gradient. As a result the winds speeds are expected to dissipate today, oscillating around NE’ly as the high expands south for the afternoon.

 

FORECAST DISCUSSION: Between 0500 and 0700 there were partly cloudy conditions in Key West and the winds at San Key were all over the place. The winds speeds ranged between 12 and 17 knots, with directions shifting through 60 degrees; however, the trend is towards lighter NE’ly winds (10-14 knots). The clouds are associated with an upper level disturbance and will likely linger through much of the day. It is also worth noting that the wind chill is only about 47 degrees, with a freeze warning in southern FL and near record lows in Key West, so bring the warm clothes out for this morning.

 

For the rest of the day the winds will stay in the same range 08-14 knots with continued oscillations in direction.

Partly cloudy conditions are expected to continue, with a right trend in the wind direction.

 

WEATHER: The morning clouds will linger through much of the day, with some breaks of sun in the afternoon. That said there is no rain likely, and you will see a slight warming trend through the day. Look for a daytime high of 60F, with this warming trend expected to continue into tomorrow.

 

SEAS: Decreasing swells will seas in the 2-6 foot range this morning decreasing to 2-4 feet by afternoon. Even with the decreasing seas look for choppy conditions through the day.

 

Detailed Wind Forecast:

Time Wind Speed Wind Direction (True)

(LT) Mean Range Mean Range

1000 12 10-15 040 015-055 ...early gusts to 20 knots, easing with sunrise

1200 10 09-14 045 020-060 ...more right more decrease in speed

1400 09 07-12 035 020-060 ...left with some late day build

1600 10 07-12 025 010-050

 

HEDGE: Forecast Confidence is average.

1. With the large high dominating the condition on course there will be little development in the weather during the day. The winds will stay in the 08-14 knots range, and the direction will oscillate between NNE’ly and ENE’ly. Thus my confidence is high for the overall forecast trend, but low as to the timing and intensity of any individual shifts.

 

2. Look for the strongest winds of the day early in the morning. These winds will fad quickly, with the average winds speeds staying around 10 knots today. As a result today will be the lightest winds day of racing for the week.

 

3. In general right shift will tend to be gusts, while left shift will be lulls. In fact, if your on D1 and your top mark is anywhere near land, watch for a steady left shift with decreasing winds as you sail into the top mark. That said, if you are in D3 watch for some acceleration coming out of the channel between Key West and the airport. These gusts will diverge as they spread out in the D3 course area, making for right shifts on the western part of the course area and left shifts on the eastern part of the course area.

 

4. If anything I think the winds will be lighter (and possibly more left shifted for the afternoon) then shown in my forecast table.

 

 

OUTLOOK FOR FRIDAY (23 January 2009): High pressure will continue to spread out over southern FL with the ENE’ly gradient around the south side of the high driving the winds on course. As the flow shift right the winds will increase, with speeds between 10 and 15 knots expected all day Friday. Otherwise look for clearing skies and a slight increase in temperatures to make for a nice last day of racing.

Moving Day

 

Thursday at Key West will be the make or break for many. With three days down they have completed just one more than half the races- and as soon as the gun goes off for race seven the throwout will be in play. For those with consistent scorecards they won't move much, but for someone carrying a big number the game will change a lot. Therein, races seven and eight in this series will be the story of the week.

 

In PHRF 3 Tangent may have seemed unstoppable firing four bullets to begin the week. But a 1-1 by hard nosed competitors on L'Outrage set the stage for moving day. With the throwout factored L'Outrage is only two points back, with two races today. In this seemingly two boat drag race should Tangent respond this morning with another bullet L'Outrage is forced back into a corner- they would then be 3 down with 3 to play- and may have to resort to some match racing trickery to reel in the front runner. But if L'Outrage pulls the win it is a whole new ball game.

 

And it's not just in PHRF Fleets- look at where Alan Fields M24 sits- precariously perched in the middle of a Euopean Mob Squad, with pro's Vince Brun, Brian Porter, and John Kolius blreathing down his neck. With the drop factored, WTF gets leap frogged by Audi and Brun gets a point closer. Kolius and Porter fall further back from the top five- so you hvae to expect seeing them coming with guns blazing. While UKA-UKA looks like they would have to have a serious slip-up to get passed, and holding a 5 in the pocket they would have to do it twice to really get hurt. Expect to see them stay away from trouble in race seven- if anyone can get close enough to them to cause any. But second is anyone's ball game with just seven points seperating them after a drop. But those chasing you have to be a little careful- sailing a race worse than your drop at this stage of the game makes you fall further- doing it twice and you could be right out of the top ten.

 

The Melges 32 Star find themselves in an interesting spot. Thier lead is three overnight, which grows to five with four as soon as the gun sounds. In the bag, right? Hardly in this fleet where only four competitors will be holding all single digits after the drop. Points can change very quickly with a single bad set or takedown, or missing one shift. One thing is for sure- if someone is going to make a move the time is now. Just about anyone in the top ten would jump seriously with a 1-1- especially if Star is a little too conservative and has a couple of finishes worse than 5th.

 

Today is moving day. How high can XS climb back? Can WTF hold on to a top five finish? Will the front runners pull ahead, or set the stage for a Friday Finish? Only time will tell, but we hope our tacticians out there had thier coffee and bran muffins early this morning or the shit's going to pile up quick in "fantasyland."

Clean - Nice interview with T Hutch. Very classy guy. Jonathan as well.

Nice to see good interviews with great sailors. Quantum will do well with Hutch as a spokesman. Good on them for putting the classy guy out front.

 

Light air today looks like.... Maybe the SC37's will hold their own??

Does anyone know if all of the classes will have a throwout after 7 races? Typically the Farr 40's don't...with the exception of one year I think.

Whoops,

 

Next time I'll check the SI's first...

 

17.1 With the exception of the Melges 32 and Melges 24 classes, a boat’s series score will be the total of her race scores without exclusion. For the Melges 32 and Melges 24 classes, a boat’s worst score will be excluded from her series score if seven or more races have been completed subject to rule 90.3(B).

 

Drop-outs for the melges amongus, no such luck for L'Outrage in PHRF-3. They are 4 back with 4 to play. Without a blanking of Tangent in the last four theyw ill have to hope they can win both today, and pray (or arrange) to get someone inbetween them.

From the North report:

 

OVERVIEW SYNOPSIS: High pressure, building southeast into northern Florida, dominated the conditions yesterday. As a result the N'ly to NE'ly winds lasted through the day, staying in the forecasted range for wind speeds. The direction was a little more challenging, with the winds generally a little more right shifted than expected and large oscillations through the day.

 

For today, the same area of high pressure will remain the driving force for the winds. The NNE'ly to NE'ly pressure gradient around the southeastern periphery of the high will make for a continued right shift today, and the expanding high will make for a slight decrease in the pressure gradient. As a result the winds speeds are expected to dissipate today, oscillating around NE'ly as the high expands south for the afternoon.

 

FORECAST DISCUSSION: Between 0500 and 0700 there were partly cloudy conditions in Key West and the winds at San Key were all over the place. The winds speeds ranged between 12 and 17 knots, with directions shifting through 60 degrees; however, the trend is towards lighter NE'ly winds (10-14 knots). The clouds are associated with an upper level disturbance and will likely linger through much of the day. It is also worth noting that the wind chill is only about 47 degrees, with a freeze warning in southern FL and near record lows in Key West, so bring the warm clothes out for this morning.

 

For the rest of the day the winds will stay in the same range 08-14 knots with continued oscillations in direction.

Partly cloudy conditions are expected to continue, with a right trend in the wind direction.

 

WEATHER: The morning clouds will linger through much of the day, with some breaks of sun in the afternoon. That said there is no rain likely, and you will see a slight warming trend through the day. Look for a daytime high of 60F, with this warming trend expected to continue into tomorrow.

 

SEAS: Decreasing swells will seas in the 2-6 foot range this morning decreasing to 2-4 feet by afternoon. Even with the decreasing seas look for choppy conditions through the day.

 

Detailed Wind Forecast:

Time Wind Speed Wind Direction (True)

(LT) Mean Range Mean Range

1000 12 10-15 040 015-055 ...early gusts to 20 knots, easing with sunrise

1200 10 09-14 045 020-060 ...more right more decrease in speed

1400 09 07-12 035 020-060 ...left with some late day build

1600 10 07-12 025 010-050

 

HEDGE: Forecast Confidence is average.

1. With the large high dominating the condition on course there will be little development in the weather during the day. The winds will stay in the 08-14 knots range, and the direction will oscillate between NNE'ly and ENE'ly. Thus my confidence is high for the overall forecast trend, but low as to the timing and intensity of any individual shifts.

 

2. Look for the strongest winds of the day early in the morning. These winds will fad quickly, with the average winds speeds staying around 10 knots today. As a result today will be the lightest winds day of racing for the week.

 

3. In general right shift will tend to be gusts, while left shift will be lulls. In fact, if your on D1 and your top mark is anywhere near land, watch for a steady left shift with decreasing winds as you sail into the top mark. That said, if you are in D3 watch for some acceleration coming out of the channel between Key West and the airport. These gusts will diverge as they spread out in the D3 course area, making for right shifts on the western part of the course area and left shifts on the eastern part of the course area.

 

4. If anything I think the winds will be lighter (and possibly more left shifted for the afternoon) then shown in my forecast table.

 

 

OUTLOOK FOR FRIDAY (23 January 2009): High pressure will continue to spread out over southern FL with the ENE'ly gradient around the south side of the high driving the winds on course. As the flow shift right the winds will increase, with speeds between 10 and 15 knots expected all day Friday. Otherwise look for clearing skies and a slight increase in temperatures to make for a nice last day of racing.

 

 

Well, well. A North Sails weather report on a Quantum Sails sponsored website. The day is just starting and you monkeys are already stepping on your collective johnsons. Today should prove to be good.

 

Just put this on the bottom and all is well:
