      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.

Bump-n-grind beat me to it. Sailski, bear some things in mind. 1) it is the first day 2) they probably aren't done with their days races yet 3) most regatta people generally wait until after the race committee arrives back to the dock to post results. So, why don't you just take a chill pill or 5 and wait a few hours. Just because we're sailing anarchy doesn't mean we have the answer for everything. We're not a private army. Relax and I'm sure you'll find results, as we all will, when they're posted.

Well sorry to get your panties in an uproar. Just trying to see if any of the anarchists in Muskegon, which I do know are out watching the racing.. have any info. As for Bump.... If you have followed the regatta before, you will know that it can be days- weeks for them to post anything on that website. Just look at the current entries list. So... I will pose the question again (even though it bothers bump and InNeed). Does anyone have any info on the J35 Na's? Bump and Need if you don't like it ........

Sorry about not getting the results posted on the MYC site.

 

Four races held today, all inside on Muskegon Lake. Wind SW @ 18-25.

 

Mr. Bill's perfect with four bullets. Aftershock is tied with (I believe) Whiplash for second with 11 points each.

 

Minor carnage ... Falcon busted a pole, a few kites blew up, some halyards and sheets died.

 

Hopefully we'll be able to get 'em out on Lake Michigan tomorrow. Today was unsafe for the RC boats (4-6 footers with the occasional +).

 

I'll get the results up after tomorrow's racing ... www.muskegonyachtclub.org

Was the racing on the big lake, or inside today? If inside, what reasons are there for that?

OK, I'm not going to 'justify' anything (not the cadre making the decision), but it was inside (Muskegon Lake) again. We sent a boat out at 9:00AM and there was 4-6 knots breeze with leftover 2-4 foot slop. We wound up with good breeze inside by 10AM (10-14 knots), and got racing underway at 10:30. Wouldn't have started the first race 'til around 'noonish' on LM and it was still inconsistent.

 

No complaints (voiced) from the participants, so seems like a reasonable decision.

Probably a good call to stay inside. The slop would not have been fun, and judging by the results, the local knowledge doesn't seem to concern the leaders. Thanks for the update.

I was chairman of the event. The web sit was a hijacked leftover from last years regatta that I have not expertise to update so sorry for that. All of the information and results are available through the Muskegon Yacht Club site at www.muskegonyachtclub.org .

 

Racing Friday was nearly survival conditions with more like 6-8 foot waves and I saw steady mid twenties with frequent gust as high as the low thirties. RC would not have been able to do their job safely on Lake Mi so we stayed in. Had a good two foot chop on Muskegon Lake and we were able to get four solid races in by 2:30 in the afternoon. At least 5 ripped chutes and two damaged number three's, a broken Spin pole, at least two blown halyards, two jib sheets, and a check stay. Jimi at BBS did yoemans work until about 3am saturday morning in a valient effort to repair some fo the damage but at least one chute didn't make it. Mr. Bill's Wild Ride handled the conditions best and had four bullets. Most of the rest of us were just too scared to sail as deep as he was in that much air. Best broach was Falcon, who went down hard and blew up the chute and broke the pole in the fourth race. The bottom and keel got some significant air time.

 

Day two conditions were all over the map. As much as 22 knotw of wind and as little as 7 for brief periods as the wind and rain kept flowing through in waves. Outside in the big lake was still ugly but great wind and water conditions for outstanding sailing. In these conditions Mr. Bill returned to mortality and was beatable but still very fast and in the running in every race. Very consistant as the results show. Falcon came on stong and closed the gap to take over sole position of Second while Aftershock and Bad Dog Duked it out for third. Bad Dog had 3 2nds, but also had an OCS start that led to 6, After shock was steadier with two 2nds and 4 3rd/ and a 4 being their worst finish. These four boats finished many of the races nearly overlapped and the racing was very intense.

 

Day three was waiting for the wind to fill in and unfortunately it did not happen until after we had called it a regatta after waiting for nearly three hours. As we were down to a point where we only had time to run one race it was unlikely to affect the standings anyway. If we had gotten the planned three races on Sunday there was a battle for first and third that unfortunately mother nature decided for us.

 

Overall a clean regatta, the Muskegon Yacht Club, RC, and Staff did an outstanding job. Everyone had a great time, and no one was sorry we did not race on Lake Michigan. The J/35 clan is a blast and really good people. Can't wait to do it again! :P

 

Congrats to Mr. Bill, Falcon, and Aftershock for continuiing to set the standards for the J/35 performance. We were knocking on the door with good boat speed but couldn't quite crack the podium on this one.

First, Congrats to the Wild Ride crew on a well sailed regatta. Wish we could call a do over to reduce the level of carnage on the boat Friday (carbon fiber poles are good in compression mode, flexural mode not so much). Also thanks for the hospitality at the beach house, though I want a rematch in the euchre tournament.

 

Larry, thanks for putting on a fine regatta. Wish there were more boats participating, but times being what they are. Would have been nice to have a race or three on Sunday - maybe extend the time limit to 5 pm? :P Either that or extend the open pour a few more hours. ;) That was some good pig & corn on Sat!

 

Hope to see everyone in Annapolis next year!
