MAPFRE was penalized two points in the Volvo Ocean Race. Some say they should have been disqualified, some say they didn’t do anything to make the boat faster, so why penalize them at all? What’s the all the fuss about? Jump in right here to find out.  

This Southport, Australia departure was discussed in the forums last year when it happened, but our friends at Voiles et Voiliers posted some great shots of the action and we figured we’d share one up.  Name of the boat?  Jeux De Guerre.  Translation?  Wargames. Head over here for more info, and go to the V&V […]

There are spots in the Caribbean where you’ve got great racing at a relatively affordable price.  Than there’s St. Barths, where if you have to ask how much it is, you can’t afford it! Day 1 at Les Voiles De St. Barth saw just how embarrassing a monster monohull can be; it cost Jim Clark […]

It has been a long time since we’ve seen this much excitement around a new boat launch, but we reckon if ever a boat deserved it, it’s the world’s first fully foiling cruiser/racer.  Sick work from all the Gunboat G4 build/design team, and we’re proud to host this World Premier of the beautiful film of […]

Pretty cool, we reckon. Do you know?  

A stoked Peter Johnstone reports that the hard-working design and build team at Gunboat have done it!  The full-foiling G4 cruiser/racer is ticking all the test boxes during her St. Martin sea trials, and here’s today’s sailing report directly from test pilot and mast builder Ben Hall: “An epic day of sailing the new Gunboat […]

Language boffins have complained for years that the 3-day Sperry Charleston Race Week is woefully misnamed.  But the wild success of the hemisphere’s biggest regatta has allowed the event to leapfrog right over the ‘week’ part of its name, because this year, April is Charleston Race Month.  And thanks to our friends at Sperry and […]

Scot Tempesta, Editor & Publisher Sailing Anarchy Mr. Tempesta, I am a cruising sailor who frequents the PNW. I had hoped to become a member of SA, even though I don’t quite swear as well or enjoy porn or dirty jokes. I enjoy taking my kids and grandkids sailing. I felt there was alot of […]

It seems each day brings another great use for Francois Chevalier’s awesome comparo render of the Ships of the Line, and we thank Francois and Jacques yet again for a pic that’s now been seen on Facebook about 70 brazilion times.  Anyway, we deserved the friendly rebuke we received yesterday from our old pal and […]

Longtime SA’er and A-Cat, Moth, and 18 footer sailor SimonN begs for it, though the vote is already likely over. Agree or disagree? I know that members of a number opf teams read this forum, so i address this to them in the hope of avoiding what i believe will be a disaster for the […]

As Ferrari finally gives Italy something to cheer for in top level racing, the fanatical Italian fans are on the verge of losing their maritime standard bearer Luna Rossa thanks to the impending vote on the new America’s Cup One-Design 48. That’s right, folks, and you heard it here first, of course: The next AC […]

The Coast Guard saved two people from their sinking Beneteau 55 17 miles offshore, south of Monterey Friday afternoon. At 4:38 p.m., Coast Guard Sector San Francisco watchstanders received a VHF-FM radio transmission distress call from a person aboard a 55-foot sailboat, who reported the vessel was taking on water at a rapid rate. The two people aboard could […]

The Weather Channel We haven’t had rain here in Southern California in quite a while and the North Pacific high doesn’t look like it will relinquish its grip on the state anytime soon. The massive dome that has occupied the area between Hawaii and the mainland pretty much all winter is simply huge and has […]

Last week we asked our friends Jacques Taglang and Francois Chevalier if they could put together one of their awesome line drawings comparing the various AC multihulls, and they did us one better – here’s a look at the ‘evolution’ of the fastest inshore racing boats in existence; the BMW/Oracle 90, AC72, stillboard AC62, AC45, […]

#LunaRossaChallenge is distinctly opposed to the proposal to change the Class Rule for the 35th America’s Cup — Luna Rossa Challenge (@lunarossa) March 26, 2015 To no one’s surprise, Luna Rossa Challenge just said ‘fuck you’ to Coutts and Doc Harvey’s plan to cut down the America’s Cup to 40-footers, and judging by the silence […]

With thousands of photos coming through the Volvo Ocean Race satellite pipeline it’s easy to skim past them, but this one sent in from Amory Ross a few days ago is, as of today, our favorite shot of the entire race.  It’s likely Team Alvimedica bowman Nick Dana untrapping a halyard in big waves churned […]

Designer Robert Perry has been one of best friends and great contributors here at SA. When he sends us things like this, it makes us know that what we have been doing for 15 years has been worthwhile. I posted a simple question about vangs for my new four Betts boat project on SA this […]

Keith K-Mag Magnussen gets ready to crush it to Cabo… The 2015 Newport to Cabo Race is almost here and the excitement is reaching fever pitch. The long list of entries displays the growing popularity of mid distance racing. Almost every kind of boat is represented and every kind of sailor. Most will go unnoticed […]
