      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.

And we wonder why there is a lack of participation in sailing in this country. We need more boats like that.

quite a few of the shots are I think of a Longztse (thompson 650/680 derivative) - some great range of boats there including a few wired boats, some racks....great to see.

Great photos of some great looking boats. :)

Sportboat sailing is obviously popular in Switzerland.

There seems to be trapeze on a lot of different boats. Do the local rules allow that?

a lot of the OD (Joker, Streamline, ASSO 99) and development classes (all kinds of Liberas) have been using traps for quite a bit of time.

Those boats were designed with traps so most of the wires were not retrofitted. Would exclude a lot of boats if traps weren't allowed and rated.

I think the only boat on lac leman that isnt a sport boat, is a Surprise.

it is a U20, check the sticker, a Surprise looks more like this:

but I'm with you, a Surprise is not a sportboat, it's too old, too heavy, too less sailarea, no asym, etc... but still a good boat (sailed a lot on Surprise)

so the leeward rack swings up when the load is on the windward one? Smart! Was it done before or is it a new concept?

It's new for me, still have to work it out properly but we have time, as you see in the pic he's still building the hull.

This hull shape can heel upwind and still go fast, so there is the need to have some clearance on the leeward rack

Looks like a little bigger version of Velivolo.

Nice.

Yes it is 1m longer but same beam, so the shape is much cleaner.

It has a bigger bulb too (200 kg) and wider wings ( we'll go really wide, something around 4 m )

You dont have to be sorry markus. So it was a good solution 20 years ago and it is a good solution for us now.

I've been lurking over these boats for years. The next work trip to that side of the planet and I'm there.

 

I have always been torn between the Onyx and Esse. Slim sexy beast vs power to burn. Don't really need to compare since they both have great one design classes, but hey.

 

The jib twist trim for the Onyx gives me pause. Is it just that set of holes in the clew, or have people set up the jib halyard/cunningham to do the job under load?

I like the Blu 30 which is from Switzerland, I think. Simple design with self tacking jib. Just add a bow prod. I think only one was built. Anyone know where it is or sailed against it ?

Nice Design TRuc

any idea on costs????

 

really like the lines

 

Thank OTB

This is the first one, so we'll have a detailed building budget when it hit the water. It is something between 10000 and 15000 euros (it is in switzerland).

By now consider 1000 for the plans, about the same for the plywood, 200 for the lead, about 40 kg epoxy, light glass + some carbon for the fin.

So the hull is quite cheap, the not so cheap item is the rig, it has a big impact on the budget.

It is up to your wallet as there are many options: alu vs carbon mast, new vs second hand, exotic sail material vs dacron, you can do it cheap or spend a lot of money.

every home built in switzerland seems to take its time (this one, T780,...)

but the result is usually a piece of art!
