Looks like something familiar. But is it?  

  Are you getting stoked for the Sydney Hobart Race?  We sure as shit are, and judging from longtime Sydney-Hobart photographer Andrea Francolini’s Facebook Page, he is too (and thanks AF for sending over a higher-res shot of this 2006 dunking for the SA’ers).  It’s not just the long-awaited US vs. AUS showdown between the […]

What a cool idea! Everybody has some old foulies hanging in their closet or in their hanging locker on the boat, maybe some boxed up in the attic or garage.  Those old sets of foul weather gear that just don’t seem to keep the elements out any longer.  You’ve had them for years, they are […]

Clean Report We’ve got far too many videos from my ten-day stop in Cape Town to put them all up here, but despite the fact that they’re all shaky ‘Clean Cam’ clips, the interviews finally get you sailors what you really want:  In-depth discussions of what’s working and what’s not, what’s fast and what’s not, […]

Will Ian Walker get back on form and run away with the Cape Town In-Port Race? When Bouwe told the press that he didn’t take the in-port seriously, was he serious? Will the girls start showing their talent? What happens when you sail a VO65 with just 7 crew? And most importantly, will Knut Frostad […]

Clean Report It was nearly ten years ago when I did my first on-assignment interview for Sailing Anarchy; an interview with then-skipper of Movistar, Bouwe Bekking.  Three weeks later, Movistar sank, but Bouwe is brave and I’m going aboard Brunel with him today for the practice race, but not before posting this interview with the Dutch ocean racer.  Check out this […]

When Sir Robin Knox-Johnson crosses the Route Du Rhum finish line in Gaudeloupe in a little less than a week, he’ll get some spectacular news; the lawsuit filed by English bottom-feeder lawyer Ruth Harvey against his Clipper Race was tossed out by a Havant judge earlier this week.  Harvey claimed she suffered sexual harassment and discrimination […]

In this battle of the latecomers from an angle we may be the first to have, the two final entries in the VOR fight it out mid-Atlantic, with Chris Nicholson luffing the Spanish a couple of weeks into Leg 1.  Did MAPFRE foul Vestas?  You make the call. Meanwhile, MAPFRE’s DFL has already produced some […]

Something old, something new? Tell us.  

Leg 1 of the Volvo is over, the Rhum fleet screams towards the Caribbean, some Midwest college action, remembering the memories, and much more in this week’s edition of Video Anarchy. The King of the Atlantic it was a different Banque Populaire Maxi that Loick Peyron took to the ultimate record smash, but today’s accomplishment […]

Solo Figarists Nick Cherry and Henry Bomby continue with Sailing Anarchy’s 2014 Route Du Rhum coverage, sponsored by Bruce Schwab Energy Systems. Please get in touch with the Vendee veteran to find out how his energy storage, solar power, and charging systems can benefit your cruising or racing boat today, and enjoy Nick and Henry’s latest analysis.  Hit the thread for […]

Plenty of breeze and hundreds of thousands of eyeballs for the 92-boat Route Du Rhum fleet as they head to Cap Frehel into some brisk weather.  Watch the highlights above, and eyes on the thread for weather, analysis, links, videos and everything else the Anarchists can find.  We’re pushing the organizers to make the full […]

Gusts into the 60s, waves over 20 feet, and FUCKING SNOW greeted the Midwest today, wreaking havoc on shorelines across the big lakes.  Will this winter be another extreme freeze?  NOAA says no (unless you’re in the SE), but with the Great Lakes up to 10 degrees colder than average, we’re not optimistic. Check out more […]

Big Pimpin’ Sailing Anarchy is pleased to welcome Whitecaps Marine Outfitters as the newest sponsor of our site and our Gear Anarchy forum. Whitecaps has been providing sailors with a great selection of foul weather gear since 2006 and has recently undergone a major makeover with a new website, new owners, and new Brands.  We […]

The Puget Sound racing community continues to drift along in shock at the loss of affable and experienced 46-year old Star sailor Jay Berglund (and the sinking of the Harmony 22 Gizmo, the boat he was on) during a race this weekend in the South Puget Sound.  Three Sheets NW has a touching feature on Berglund, […]

Haven’t we screamed for years how absolutely fucked ISAF is? Open Letter to members of ISAF Council: As you prepare for the ISAF Annual Meeting next week, and knowing that you have something like 215 submissions to consider, it is time to take a pause and give serious consideration to the state of the Disciplinary […]

An exclusive for you Anarchists from one of our all-time favorite sailors, Bouwe Beking onboard Tean Brunel in the Volvo Ocean Race… Nearly two weeks on the water, time flies. Are we happy? Yes, we have 9 content inmates on-board teambrunel. Now don’t get me wrong, this jail is not bad at all, but we are missing […]

Speaking of Moths… The Wazsp looks like a moth, it will measure as a moth, it still has wings and foils in the same positions, it will be like a current moth to sail, except maybe simpler with less adjustments, but there are differences which make it cheaper to build, simpler to rig and more […]
