There has not been any other sailboat class that has sparked as much innovation as Classe Mini, the class association behind the Mini 6.50 sailboats. These tiny yachts are on the cutting edge of sailboat design and have been since the class was first introduced in 1977. Take for example the Mini Eight Cube which […]

Big Pimpin’ It was only a year ago that the HH66 was introduced to the luxury performance catamaran market; since then activity both in the boatyard and on the racecourse has been frenetic. The potential this boat showed in the design brochures and renderings from Morrelli & Melvin is translating into reality, with outstanding performance, […]

Five 12-metres damaged in the Caribbean. Most were dismasted. And as you can see in the photo, Stars and Stripes sitting submerged in the bay on it swing keel. Check it.

We like this post from our epic Forums. Decided it’s time to update the sails on our cruising 40’er and have been getting some initial quotes on lower end of the composite range. Race the boat most weekends along with mostly shorter cruising trips to favourite anchorages and a longer coastal cruise every couple of […]

Last year’s challenge with the China Club Challenge Match, or Club Cup as it is affectionately known was that 48 hours prior to the event, the largest tropical storm of the year, (statistics later showed it was the most powerful storm anywhere in 2016) made a direct hit on Xiamen, the venue for the event.

So after giving this some thought, I’ve decided not to pursue the SWYC issue.  No protest, no legal action. Nada. It’s clear some people there hate me and I don’t see them changing anytime soon. Life is too short to battle with people who seemingly have almost no idea what they are doing. Let them […]

We think the war on drugs is perhaps the biggest US policy failure ever. That this is what we send the Coast Guard to do is an insult to what their real mission should be. Thousands and thousands of people are jailed, families torn apart, while billions and billions of dollars have been and continue […]

Proving that some people are not only small-minded and vindictive, but they also behave in ways that go against the corinthian nature of our sport. Is this really the pony that SWYC wants to bet on? Is this really the kind of publicity they want their club to get? I guess the answer is yes. […]

Golly, we are as surprised as you are, but it looks like SWYC accepted our entry into the San Diego to Ensenada Race! Check the entries here. We must commend them for doing what is best for the sport, and of course, that is encouraging, not discouraging participation. It is refreshing to think that they […]

We were rafted up waiting for the fog to lift and breeze to fill on Sunday, the last day of the last T-Bird Regatta for 2017. Breeze finally filled in after a couple of postponements. There was a bit of alcohol involved and we happened to be DDW to the RC. Why not stay rafted and […]

Given Southwestern Yacht Club’s long history of incredibly poor race management coupled with it’s recent targeted vitriol, it is little surprise that the upcoming San Diego to Ensenada race, with just 13 days until entries close, has a whopping 14 boats entered. This is a race that routinely drew 70, 80 boats, but has seen […]

As I was driving home from Santa Barbara last night, after thrashing through the Pacific during the weekly Wet Wednesday bash, I got to thinking about our sport and the people in it.  We all know that there’s actually a rather diverse selection of characters in sailing, despite what the media likes to portray: from the snooty, […]

Big Pimpin’ Making sense of sailing is hard enough when you’re in the race, let alone when you’re on the outside looking in, whether as organiser, coach or spectator. But the advent of accessible GPS tracking is now starting to make things easier to understand and Germanybased software giant SAP is working hard to refine […]

Lightly attended and largely inconsequential, the frisco bbs continues the slide to irrelevance. If not for the sexy Pac 52’s, this once impressive regatta would be little more than just another shitty frisco affair in the cold, gray bay. Far as we can tell the two things worth noting are Gavin Brady’s straight bullet dominance […]

I see New Zealand Herald are at it again seems to be typical NZ Herald reporting on sailing- trying to sensationalize something that is not sensational. They claim that Larry Ellison is set to “snub the America’s Cup ”. For the record snub means to “ignore or spurn disdainfully”(Oxford English Dictionary) This comes on the back […]

We’ve managed to remain in close touch with our friends in the Caribbean Sailing Association throughout their recent and dreadful experiences – offering by comparison minuscule but still sincere support wherever it can be of any use whatsoever.

I was a tad bummed to see this pic on my Facebook feed this morning. The red and white boat washed up there after Hurricane Irma was my ride for the 89/90 Whitbread Round the World Race. It’s called Fazisi and was the Soviet Union’s first, and by happenstance, last entry in the Whitbread. When […]

John MacLaurin, one of SoCal’s most involved and successful owners has passed away. Always a gentleman and a true sportsman, he owned a succession of (mostly) very successful Pendragons, most notably Purple Pendragon, there isn’t much that they didn’t win. His presence in our sport will be sorely missed. There is a discussion thread.

With only one race firing off before the Mistral shut down yesterday, the J/70 Worlds in Sardinia has been a frustrating look at too much breeze and not enough.  It doesn’t seem to be bothering Peter Duncan though – his main competition had deep results in the finicky race on Friday, and his Relative Obscurity […]
