      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.

I'm entered, it's one of my favorite races.

 

Rounding the Farallone Island is SO much fun, especially when there is a swell running.

"Should we bear off now? Or should we tack?" Yup, it's an interesting place.

I spoke with Gary Helms today (chair of the BAMA Farallones, etc) and he got a call yesterday from the Coast Guard. They said that BAMA needed to reapply for a permit to race Saturday. They sent him the forms which he filled out and got right back to them. They said they would 'review' it and would get back to him FRIDAY ! They never said the original issued permit was revoked nor gave him anything in writing that states that. No explanation given to him on what they are up to. Not good if they pull the plug on the race - this organization works for US and they are way overstepping the line if they cancel the race.

 

Gary will announce at the skippers meeting tomorrow that everyone will need to check the bama.org website Friday night to see if there is even a race.

 

I plan on going out Saturday, take my own time...... they can take away the race committee but not the course! -g

Didn't the race run on April 1st a couple of years ago and BAMA listed it on their web site as the "Around the Aleutians" race? And the race t-shirts had the "race instructions"-- under the big red bridge, round the island, and back-- printed on them upside down so you could read them while wearing the shirt? They have a history of humor. But this latest bit doesn't strike me as a joke. The Coast Guard tends to be pretty humorless.

yes they did. this CG hard-on thing is bizarre though as the dhf has a long history of participation and a good safety track record. once again it would seem the pussification of america continues and our govt takes another bite in the neverending quest to protect us from ourselves. it truly never ends...

Well actually the DHF has had more issues than any other race in the Gulf of the Farallones. 4+ deaths over the years (last one in 1999 - the other in a gale in the 80's I recall). The DHF has always been in the spring when the weather can be quite harsh. All that aside, the race has a lot of entries year after year and is a very popular event. Cross your fingers.

Right. And isn't that why, in part, we like it so much, the risks? Hell, my wife gets nervous anytime I get anywhere near the brown buildings on Clement Ave. Also, might it not be simply unfortunate coincidence that the DHF has the record it does when the SSS and YRA also run Farallones and other coastal races in the spring? Haven't people died during summer beer can races in the estuary? Shun the nanny state.

Race committee says the race is on......

 

..apparently a new supplemental form/permit to the general/historical YRA permit is now required for offshore races. Its so the CG and the RC are more specifically in contact in advance of the race. Seems like a good thing since at least 3 shorthanded races in last year have had CG assistance.

 

One trophy for the DHF is the Madigan trophy..I was on the course surfing an ULDB when the helo flew the course and saved one of the crew..before eprirb / handheld VHF. They got a brief sos before the water killed the battery- its amazing the CG got there in time with so little info. Anything we can do to make their job easier (and save tax dollars supporting our sport) I think is a good thing!

Have a great race!!

Be glad it's not today:

 

"This Afternoon: NW wind 28 to 32 kt, with gusts as high as 40 kt. Mostly sunny. WNW swell 8 feet at 10 seconds. Wind waves around 7 ft."

 

It's supposed to be nice for Saturday, then getting breezy again Saturday night into Sunday.

 

 

As usual, I'll wait for the singlehanded version. Like beating your head against a wall - it feels so good when you stop . . .

I'll be there with my Santa Cruz 27 - just as soon as I replace the busted traveler car from the DH Lightship. I bought a new one two days ago, tried to place it on the track - nope, Harken changed track styles at some point. Tomorrow, I get to rip up my old traveler track and put down a new one.

 

As a related aside, how many plan on wearing a wetsuit and/or have a backup rudder? I've read a few accounts now of people wearing wetsuits - at all common??

Wetsuit is very uncommon. Seen a few Mustang survival suits and some of us carry a full on survival 'gumby' suit. Most just get wet with their plain old foulies. I doubt very few have emergency rudders for this short race - even those that have them, including myself, don't carry it for every race.

My absolute favorite day race! I'll be thinking of ou guys while we are racing on Puget Sound up here. (If you can smell the rock from upwind, you're probably a bit too close.) My trouble has always been wanting to set the kite too soon instead of reaching up first. Not great for finishing position, but a GREAT ride.

The outside bouys were showing good pressure early this AM too. Peter followed the fleet in the ebb out to Point Bonita this AM where they parked. By 2:00 a large number were STILL parked near Bonita

and a few started to give in. Peter reported seen a number of racers abandoning between 3:00 PM and 4:00PM...

 

Viisted the Southbay to try to see the plane crash at San Carlos that my driver witnessed driving up 101 this AM, Saw White Dove racing the Seq event..huh? Visited the High school event at the StFYC,

caught some finishers in Raccon Straight from the SFYC Cup, went to RYC's Big Dinghy and the caught some windysurfers at TI.. very windy late in the Berkeley flats and South Bay..Go figure...

Heat Wave, J-80, capsized in the San Francisco Entrance Channel, near buoys 7 & 8.

 

Both sailors were recovered by the Coast Guard and they were treated by EMS CG personnel

at the SF Crissy Field station for hypothermia. They were not hospitalized. Fortunately, handheld

VHF communication from the vessel allowed the Coast Guard to be alerted.

 

Preliminary data is the entrance channel had breaking waves, as reported by finishers after dark.

There was enough breeze to keep moving from the start to Bonita. Then it started to lighten. Lumpy conditions made or tough work, especially for the multihulls that started before us. We were one of the lead boats when we pulled the plug after 3 hours of going 1-3k but getting nowhere against the flood a few miles past Bonita.... our GPS track drew a nice large figure-8. Most of the fleet was still trying to get to Bonita when we slowly came back in with the flood. Fog was getting real heavy.

Ditto. After 3 hours of bobbing around in circles at pt bonita we pulled the plug too. Tons of boats were stacked up along the tide line like driftwood where there was almost zero wind and heavy chop. I lost track of how many times I got wacked in the sholder by the boom as the boat slotted in the chop. Dodging other boats with no stearage was tricky too. Not a lot of fun. The only redemtion was the nice chute run we had on the way home once we got back under the gate where there was plenty of sea breeze.

 

I'm curious to know how many people stuck it out and finished. Much respect for those that did.

6+ hours from the start to get to Muir Beach, and 7+ hours to get around the rock pile and back. The ride back from the Farallones was worth the admission ticket! Glad we were past the "cresting" swells the time the sun went down, though.

We were the first boat out of the swirly stuff and into the Northwesterly, at around 1:30.

The Newick tri, which did really well in the light and lumpy, beat us to the Island by about 25 minutes.

We rounded about 4:00, finished around 7:30, after getting stuck hard in a weird transition zone from Mile rock to the Bridge.

Way in was 20 to 30 knots from about 120 TWA and BIG waves with a #3 and main.

We were on the Mumm 30, and finished just behind Trevor... Took FOREVER to break away from the coast, but was well worth the ride in...

 

Shook the reef out just after the island, and never dropped below 10knts with sustained 14's and 15's with a jib and main, with BIG waves. Peak speed was 17.5knts. we had one wave break in the back of the boat, but all in all was some of the most fun I've had for a long time. :lol: :lol:
