Extreme 2 continued her dominant ways in the C&C 30 class at the NYYC Annual last week, with mast man Petey Crawford continuing his ultra-high octane videography with this highlight reel from the regatta.  What isn’t on camera was a stellar Round-The-Island Race crash when the 12M Courageous sailed headlong into the rocks at Fort [...]

J/111 skipper Bill Smith very nearly became the first posthumous winner of a Continental Championship this past weekend after a massive heart attack took the hard-nosed Chicago sailor’s life on Saturday morning.  His Wooton was leading after the first day of racing for the North American Championship, with light airs killing off Saturday and very [...]

Spotted in the creek in brightlingsea Essx UK this past weekend. Local sail maker Mark Butler with a Gaff rig 505… He seems happy with it… The sail was made from an old big Genoa. He’s smiling which is the main thing… I’d love to see it in a blow! Keep up the great work. [...]

Big Pimpin’ The Esse 990 of Guy Williams ranked 3rd at the oldest point to point regatta in the Western Hemisphere, the Race to the Coast, organized by the Southern Yacht Club. The first race was held on July 4, 1850 with a (since then unchanged) course that started on Lake Pontchartrain in New Orleans, [...]

Okay, okay we give up. They rule. Sort of. I had been tempted to take another jab at Comanche, the 100-foot sloop owned by Jim and Kristy Clark, as they led the Newport-Bermuda fleet toward Bermuda. I was waiting for the jubilant press release about how they had beaten all the other boats in the [...]

Big Pimpin’ From our friends at Oceanvolt. This from Conrad’s IMOCA60 during the NY Vende. The boat was hydrogenerating 4,7kW at 20 knots speed (charging the whole 16kWh battery pack in 3 hours). We think that’s pretty damn good.

The intensity on the M32 Scandinavian Series ratcheted up in a massive way last week as the sport’s biggest prize ever will soon be awarded at the end of the Match Cup Sweden in Marstrand next month.  While the Scandi Series is all fleet racing, it still served as the final big training regatta before [...]

With many Rio 2016 teams now on the ground for their final six weeks of training and practice, shit is getting real – too real.  Worse yet, there’s really no help available when it all goes down.  Consider this report from last week, sent in by a longtime Anarchist on the ground in Brazil (and [...]

In perhaps the most ironic piece of America’s Cup news in the history of the billionaire-attracting silver bauble, Oracle Team USA’s former base on Pier 80 in San Francisco has been turned into a massive shelter for the homeless.  If you’re homeless in Bermuda and Oracle stays true to form, just sit tight: You might [...]

If the America’s Cup were a one-design battle, we’d likely see the awesomely talented Pete Burling and his ETNZ boys run away with it, just as Pete has done against largely the same competitors in the past few years of Moth and 49er racing.  But even the highly restricted AC50 box rule allows enough design [...]

Big Pimpin’ How often do you have to change the pumps on your boat? If you purchased a “name brand” pump in the last 10 years, your answer is probably: “Too damn often”. We constantly hear from customers fed up with dealing with the establishment brands. Year after year, these companies raise their prices and [...]

Brian Hancock poses some interesting thoughts about sinkings, rescues, and who pays for it…. The sinking of Locomotion and the subsequent rescue of the crew has me thinking about the cost of mid-ocean rescues and who should pay for them.
