Sailing Anarchy is fighting for its life
We Need Your Help
For 13 years, we’ve helped to bring you the most entertaining sailing content on the internet. Between our network of contributors, thousands of active SA Forum community members, and hundreds of companies that have supported us over the years, we’ve been able to break more stories, feature more exciting parts of sailing, and contribute to more teams and sailing charities than any other publication.
We’ve seen amazing developments in our sport since the birth of Sailing Anarchy in 1999. Boats keep getting more exciting, while racing has seen an important evolution to smaller, less complicated boats. The top of the sport is closer to Formula 1 than ever before, the magic of monster multihulls and round-the-world racing has reached further than ever before; even the Olympics are finally climbing out of the 20th century.
But there are still a few folks out there that think yachting should be the exclusive and private domain of theirs and a couple of their pals, and one of them – a close friend of Ernesto Bertarelli through the America’s Cup 33 debacle – decided to make it his personal goal to bankrupt us for speaking our mind. He’s Dan Meyers, and you can read a good summary of what’s happened here, and what kind of guy Dan is here.
We believe we’re 100% in the right, and we are confident that we will prove it beyond any doubt. We also believe we’ll prove that we’re not the first website nor will we be the last that Dan Meyers has bullied or intimidated with the threat of piles of money and firms full of nasty lawyers. Most do not have the resources or the will to go the distance, and that’s exactly what Dan Meyers is counting on in this case.
