The world’s first outward-facing J/foil made its debut last week, and Morgan Lagraviere seems to have the Open 60 Safran going pretty well. This little shot is a screen grab from the video here of the shakedown cruise, and be sure to check out the 2016 Vendee Globe thread to keep up with the very […]
SA’er “WHK” brings us up to speed on this near-disaster aboard the J/130 Solarus. From the thread. Owner Noel Sterrett and I are safely back in Newport, RI after a potentially catastrophic sinking of J/130 Solarus in 4,000 feet of water approximately 90 miles from the closest point of land during a delivery from Charleston […]
Looks like some potential rules trouble that the VOR might be sweeping under the rug. It would appear that Dongfeng, Mapfre, and SCA entered the feared Traffic Safety Separation Exclusion Zone. Below is Abu Dhabi’s Matt Knighton’s perspective. Jump in the thread here for all the dope! “I wanted to be in front of Dongfeng so we could control them”, Ian said in […]
Dongfeng Mainsail Replacement. Comments in the Sailing Anarchy Forums have even spoken about a conspiracy regarding Dongfeng’s mainsail so I thought it was time to comment, with a few facts thrown in about the real picture. 1. The rules have always allowed the use of a replacement sail – from the pre-race sail inventory if […]
The 2015 Sailing Anarchy/Sperry World Tour takes us to Newport, RI this week, along with a hundred thousand of our closest friends, and videographer Petey Crawford caught this shot of Mr. Clean trying to ‘fit in’ with other New England sporting traditions. But poking fun at Patriot superfans is only part of the reason we’re […]
Who knows what’s going on here? You do.
Jennifer Hinkel shows that sailor chicks can inspire without dominating race results or wearing a bikini. For bravely sharing her own story of how sailing helped her get past cancer, she’s Sailing Anarchy’s Sailor Chick of the Week. Want to tell Jennifer (a/k/a Wingonwing) how sailing changed or saved your life? Do it in the […]
A former America’s Cup executive is launching a new international regatta, the Golden Gate Yacht Racing Challenge, which will be sailed annually on San Francisco Bay beginning in July 2017 in an updated version of the venerable 12-meter class. Tom Ehman, who most recently had been with the America’s Cup Event Authority, said he wants […]
Farr Yacht Design President Patrick Shaughnessy took to the SA forums to respond to the MAIB report on the loss of the crew of the Farr-designed Beneteau 40.7 Cheeki Rafiki. The discussion continues here. I just wanted to say to the group here, that we assisted in the MAIB investigation, but were unable to review […]
Looks pretty interesting, but what is it?
We offer our condolences to everyone affected by the tragedy in Alabama. Huge Kudos to logtime SA’er “Puffyjman” for keeping his head on during the bad, bad times on Mobile Bay. Here’s his report, and there’s plenty more first-hand words in the thread. We had just finished on a Tripp 26 and threw the kite […]
Another sucky light air Newport to Ensenada Race at least had a pretty amazing battle for first to finish monohull. Know the players?
Clean Report The G4 ‘Wipeout’ video has already racked up some 330,000 views in less than a week, well on its way to million-view status. But I barely had time to enjoy it last week before Gunboat Marketing chief Lauren Bataille sent me a text message. “Still coming?” she wrote of my already-booked trip to […]
We’ve been telling you for months that Russell Coutts is funding a Japanese entry for the next America’s Cup, and the Independent has the confirmation this morning that another commercially viable backer of the world’s wealthiest men has joined the fray for AC35. Banker Masoyashi Son and his Kansai Yacht Club (to include Dean Barker […]
Just about perfect for a caption contest, no?
One of the funniest things we’ve seen in a long time. Nice work by Anarchist hoppy. Jump in the thread here.
A bit of a set back for the new G4. Damn, we hate to see that. Jump in the discussion thread for more.
If we’re talking about foilers vs. floaters and record-breaker monohulls vs. the rest of the world, we must be talking about Saint Barth, and outright World Sailing Speed Record holder and longtime SA’er Paul “Larso” Larsen checks in from the ORMA-60 inspired racer/cruiser Paradox at Les Voiles. Most of the chatter from St. Barths can […]
