Congrats to our good friend Brian Janney for his move to North Sails One Design. Those of you who have sailed with Brian know that you can’t find a better all around sailor or a nicer human being. Brian has been instrumental in getting our Melges 32 Anarchy set-up and up to speed. Frankly, we [...]

The soft-sailed sistership to the America’s Cup winning Stars and Stripes catamaran may have crushed all sorts of records under Steve Fossett back in the day, but she’s better known these days for dropping her rig to the dark, deep bottom of Lake Huron a few years back.  The rig was marked and recovered, but [...]

There’s a new player in on-the-water drone work, and if this quick peak of M32 catamaran racing on Biscayne Bay from earlier this month is any indication, they’ve got the goods.  Check out Up Top Photography’s other work here, and head over to M32 North America on Facebook to check in with the fastest one-design [...]

It seems that club doing their damnedest to ruin racing in San Diego couldn’t even come up with their own burgee.  Why would a club need to appropriate the design of a club established more than half a century before?  Is there really no alternative to ‘red diagonal stripe on dark blue background’ out there?

We all need a break from the water now and again, and recently profiled SA Sailor Chick of the Week Jen Edney has been busy this winter taking her ‘relaxing’ break from sailing (while climbing a snow-and-ice-covered 13,000-foot peak).   She’ll be back on the water aboard Dragon for the Miami to Havana Race in March [...]

Who knew these guys were funny? Smart yes, but funny? It’s the mysteries of our hulls that draw us to them. One moment, you’re on dry land unacknowledged by an uncaring terra firma. The next, you’re aboard. And part of the running conversation between you, the sea, and the hull that floats on that sea. [...]

There is big news for American sailing today. Big news. Except that it will likely go unnoticed in the US. Sadly. Not in the rest of the world where they will learn that American Richie Wilson just completed his second Vendée Globe becoming the only American to finish the race twice and only one of [...]

A good boat is for sale and the owner is walking away. Why? Because PHRF is the only handicap system he can race in and he hates what so much of PHRF is about. He’s not wrong. Love the boat. Hate the PHRF rating bullshit. Everyone goes out and sails these events and the 95% [...]

Remember our humorous story about the rich rooskie and his corpulent “A Yacht”? The A may very well stand for A-hole as approx $16 million is still owed to the builder. Not paying his bills sounds familiar, doesn’t it? Or maybe it’s just a small accounting mistake… One of the world’s largest yachts has been [...]

Well it looks way cooler, what with the low freeboard and rolled and ramped deck/hull and all, but one has to ask; why build this Cape 31 when the C&C 30 already exists? Cheaper? Logistics?

Ben Ainslie’s 2017 America’s Cup team are paying much more than lip service in their wide-ranging environmental partnership with 11th Hour Racing It all started with the ocean, the playing field that inspires every sailor’s dreams, and the vision that sport is a powerful force for positive change. Then a top-notch 2017 America’s Cup team [...]

You may recall the Jones Act and the America’s Cup from 2011. With the Jones Act again coming under scrutiny, it is timely to remember that those most directly affected by the act are seafarers. Over the years, lawmakers and presidents have proposed making somewhat controversial changes to the Jones Act. Some have gone so [...]

Very stoked to get the mighty Anarchy sailing again after our broken mast fiasco! The new spar is beautiful and after not having been out on the 32 for months, it was a sweet reminder of what an incredibly dynamic boat it is. Oh and while sailing in the bay, one could barely even notice [...]

It’s perhaps the fastest production 40-foot mono ever built, but in this life, nothing can ever get far from the scourge that is Macgregor! Thanks to JBSF for the shot of the Melges 40 in Dubai; stay tuned for a new M40 video coming out very soon.

Pedal power isn’t the only interesting bit of news coming from the Deep South, as a team of scientists from NZ, Australia, and New Caledonia today published their data proving, they say, that the region of Zealandia is actually a single, intact piece of continental crust separate from Australia.  In sailing and sport, we’ve long [...]

Oracle, Softbank, and Big Ben have now all splashed their AC50s this week, but it’s the throwback bicycle grinders that has set the mainstream’s tongues wagging all over the world.  Will bicycle power make the difference to help ETNZ overcome the obstacles they face in just a few months’ time, and if so, will Oracle [...]

There are many things to be said about this besides the total absurdity of it. This is nothing more than a chickenshit attempt at retaliation for my critique of SWYC. It is all quite amusing. The so-called misconduct is an irrelevant, ginned up accusation from last year (and one that they actually started) and is the [...]

This week’s Sailing Anarchy Podcast features two sailors who’ve fallen in love with sailing fast, and when they say fast, they don’t mean 15 knots!  First we grabbed forty minutes with male pin-up model, VOR/AC veteran, and 24-hr monohull recordholder (aboard Comanche) Shannon Falcone, picking his brain about testing and delivering the F4 foiling cat, [...]

Clean Report The Gunboat G4′s famous flip in St. Barth’s a couple of years ago didn’t do wonders for the marketing plan behind that ‘cruising’ foiler, but the dedicated racers developing the DNA F4 one-design spinoff of the G4 have been following a different, more logical path.  Two-time America’s Cup winner Shannon Falcone (who sailed [...]

The Abu Sayyaf group has threatened to behead a German hostage unless a $100,000 ransom is paid by February 26. The hostage, long-time sailing cruiser Jurgen Kantner, was captured in November near the pirate stronghold of Tawi Tawi. In a video released last week, Kantner – surrounded by Abu Sayyaf fighters – addressed the German government, warning that the terrorists will [...]

There was a time in Dago when the Midwinters were a fairly big deal. Plenty of boats, two days of racing, sometimes super breezy. The Midwinters were cool. Yet, under the tutelage of Southwestern Yacht Club, this once “big” regatta has been reduced to rubble. Not only has the regatta been cut in half – [...]
