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 […]

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the Sea Shepherds continue to be the only thing between the slaughter of some of Earth’s most interesting and intelligent creatures and the blubber-loving Japanese, and the Farley Mowat is their latest war machine – one of two ex-USCG cutters they’ve added to the Shepherd fleet.  And this is only […]

Homicidal monster supercyclone Pam is tearing through Vanuatu today with gusts to a stupefying 175 knots (while an amazing 3 more cyclones are sweeping the Southern hemisphere) and she’s now headed towards Aotearoa.  It confuses the hell out of us – we thought killer storms were consigned to Australia, just like venomous jellyfish/toads/reptiles, giant man-eating […]

Like you didn’t know? Jump in the thread!  

We’ve watched from afar as the Watertribe Everglades Challenge went from a wacky little raid to the biggest race of its kind anywhere, and we’ve been massively impressed to see organizer and founder Steve “Chief” Isaac negotiate the fine line between staying off the radar and creating an exciting, interesting format that allows kayaks and […]

Besides upside down? Get it right.  

Did anyone expect the first bluewater foiler to be a monohull? We sure didn’t, but Morgan Legraviere’s new Open 60 Safran looks ready for takeoff.  Sick work from the dominant duo of Verdier and VPLP, and you can hit the “New IMOCA” thread for video and more pics.  Oh – and you’ll like what Verdier […]

As you can see by the huge starting line in this drone video from yesterday, the Everglades Challenge grew too big for its britches this year, and thanks to a number of rescues (including several kayakers and a couple of dinghies) and a failure by organizers to have gotten themselves a Marine Event Permit (MEP) […]

Gotta love this PSA from our friends at West Systems… Hi Everybody! I am happy to report we have solved the brittle mixing pot issue and have been shipping the new, improved cup for close to a month now. Hopefully, the supply pipeline has been (mostly) purged of the offending cups. I want to thank […]

Oh it’s on! Kite v Moth v Nacra 20 foiler v M32. Who’s coming out on top? Weigh in here, and then we shall see who knows what’s up and who’s blowing smoke…  

Longtime SA contributer and multihuller Ron White embarks on one of the more interesting sailing challenges in North America.  I’m leaving in the morning for the Sunshine State for my third Everglades Challenge, often described as the toughest small boat race in the world.  Starting Saturday morning at 7:00 AM and running 300 nautical miles […]

With Great Lakes ice cover now at 88% – 2% more than even the cold and icy 2013-4 winter – it may seem like the hundreds of thousands of Midwest sailors will never even get soft water.  But if the lakes do thaw out before July, there’s some damned good long distance racing ahead thanks […]

A huge thanks to Gunboat skipper Chris Bailet for spending so many hours on this interview.  Catch up on the Loss of the Rainmaker with Part 1, Part 2, and the report from Ocean Crescent and be sure to read through to the end of the story for Mr. Clean’s take. SA: So they were […]

It’s a 3-way battle with just a mile of separation as Xabi Fernandez’s MAPFRE holds a slim lead over Azzam and the Dong in the last couple of hours before the Volvo frontrunners hit Auckland.  Genny and the live feed start now!  (or very soon, anyway).  Click the player and compare photos, performance stats and trivia […]
