A bit of PR puffery, but some impressive sailing, without a doubt… Since crossing the finish line at 02:05:18 HST on Saturday 19 July the crew of Scarlet Runner, have been cautiously celebrating their provisional race results. Although 1st place in their Latitude 38 division looked likely for Robert Date’s Reichel/Pugh 52, it was still [...]

As in Medicine Man, a much modified 63′ Alan Andrews SoCal special cruising along in the so far very light Santa Barbara to King Harbor Race. She rates -99 in PHRF, and owes the sleds time, but that wasn’t a problem for them in this one. Results here. While we’re at it, here’s the nicest Santa [...]

That’s what we were all saying to the wind gods who plagued the 6 Meter Europeans in Falmouth U.K,.this week. The Europeans ended today on a whimper in another dying breeze day and concluded a non event since the required five races was not achieved to establish a series. Today was the make up day [...]

Fresh from their trouncing of Teams SCA and Campos during last weekend’s little Round the Canaries race comes this shot of Brunel bowman Gerd-Jan Poortman standing on Brunel’s forestay.  ”Was he up there fixing or inspecting?”, we asked.  ”Nope – that pose was on his bucket list.” While Bouwe and the Brunel team continue to [...]

We took Mich Dej’s presently undefined role in the Team Campos VOR team as an indicator that maybe things are not going all that well for him as one of the trio of leaders of the Team France AC effort, but that take might be very wrong if you believe France’s top sailing journo Loïc LeBras. [...]

The boat was simply spectacular today. The wind was 3-5mph max but was 4-6 at my house from the south when we left. By the time we got to the Port Canaveral it had switched to the SW and died to 3-5. But the waves left over from the 20 mile fetch south were still [...]
