In the category of the gift that keeps on giving, former Oracle Racing sailor Matt Mitchell has filed a new suit against Oracle Racing.  The suit details the way Simeon Tienpont admitted to working on the king post, but does not remember who was where or when with him when the work was done.

So other than this most recent Transpac sucking for most everyone, thee one theme that is the most disturbing is the amount of trash that every boat encountered. We ran into Alex Camet (Peligroso) at the airport in Honolulu and he was horrified by it. He is writing an article for us about it, and [...]

Has some of the true adventure been lost from modern day ocean racing? My first long offshore race was the Parmelia Race, a 13,000 mile jaunt from England to Australia. Nothing compares with rolling through the Southern Ocean trying to snatch a sun sight after five days of grey skies knowing that you are fast [...]

The Royal Yacht Squadron celebrates their 200th anniversary with some big boat racing this week, something that might go unnoticed if it weren’t for Mark Lloyd’s eye for detail and impeccable timing.  The exclusive, absolutely spellbinding shot above of George David’s Rambler 88 is his gift to the Anarchists; check out the gallery here.

For almost two years we have been railing against the ridiculous state of affairs at Rio’s Olympic sailing venue, but official reactions from ISAF, the IOC and pretty much every other organization with an interest has been to plunge their heads deeply into sand.  We’ve wondered how long they could go on without meaningful action, [...]

First there was moth.  Then AC72.  Then C-Cat.  Then there was GC32, then SL33, FP, FCS20, Stiletto, that orange scow thing, and the hits keep on coming.  What do they all have in common?  You aren’t going to race across the ocean in one. That changes today, because the first ocean-ready racing foiler is now [...]

Who says beach cats can’t race offshore?  Randy Miller’s M32 catamaran horizoned the 100-ish NM Santa Barbara to King Harbor fleet this weekend, beating Bill Gibbs 52-foot cat Afterburner by almost three hours and the first monohull – a TP52 – by almost two and a half. Here’s Randy’s report, from the thread. We deployed [...]

Even the most corporate-raiding sailor still considers himself something of a conservationist; the time we all spend amongst nature’s beauty means we pay more attention than most to the problems facing our natural world.  But to the overwhelming majority of sailors, seamanship and respect for other vessels is at least as powerful as our love [...]

Next time ACEA tell you they’ve got China – ask them what they actually have. They will probably tell you they have CCTV5.

Thursday – July 23rd: beer can kite racing in ‘fukitsnukin’ conditions.’ I survive the night but don’t get anywhere close to getting around the course. Its blowing the dogs off their chains. Foiling in anything over 20 knots still comes with unexpected results at best and bodily or equipment injury at the worst. Do no [...]

Sure, they’re long in the tooth, but they look good, they go fast, they sail in 30 knots and they crash all the time.  And it’s free.  Enjoy the final breezy day of the Extreme Sailing Series, live from Germany.

The AC World Series Portsmouth will be remembered not for the racing and not for the teams; instead, it will be remembered as the event when God, Nature, the Devil, and Karma looked at Russell Coutts in the face and said, “You’re kidding, right?” This is the event where we learned that the same, gorgeous [...]
