Missing cruisers, busted boats, widespread looting, stranded tourists and destroyed infrastructure (including big parts of the Cabo airport, left) are Hurricane Odile’s legacy for much of the coastal Baja Peninsula; our thoughts and hopes for a quick recovery go out to everyone affected by the storm.

Some of the more entitled folks on San Francisco Bay continue to bitch and moan about our Big Boat Series criticism with the same fervor they have been peppering the America’s Cup with since the AC deserted them; this despite the undeniable evidence of the RC’s incompetence last week and the fact that the ‘new, inclusive’ BBS [...]

Thanks to income inequality and the booming markets, the maxi class continues to roll; Fresh off a huge acquittal in one of the biggest insider trading trials in years, Flash memory tycoon Manouch Moshayedi bought a motherfuckin’ boat, then made her a Transpac weapon.  Here’s the story from our friends at Doyle NZ.  Back to [...]

Clean Report The B-Squared Racing/Sailing Anarchy J/70 nestles into her mobile 34-foot barn as the inaugural J/70 Worlds ends, along with any notion I had of being a world-class tactician.  The team of Brian Elliott, Bryan Cameron, Whitney Prossner and me managed a 33rd out of 86 boats and 6th of 38 amateur teams.  I’m [...]

We are frequently frustrated by the low-quality videos put out by ostensibly ‘world-class’ organizations (see the link in the BBS BS story below for a great example), so when someone does it ‘just right’, we notice.  And that’s what this is – a short but intense look at the people of the Melges 20 Class [...]

We’ll be the first to tell you that we think the BBS is kinda bullshit; a whole lotta people running around at the helm of what was once one of the world’s major regattas who are absolutely sure that vanilla ice cream oozes out of their anal openings.  Is there anything about it that is even [...]

From Spookie’s owner Steve Benjamin:  At approximately 12:45 pm today while sailing upwind on port tack in the second race of the Storm Trysail Club’s IRC Championships of Long Island Sound, SPOOKIE’s rig failed just above the lower spreaders. There was about 14 knots of Easterly wind and severe seas at the time. SPOOKIE’s normal [...]

Turns out the M32 Cup is pretty damned fun to watch at least from what we saw yesterday in Sweden.  Sweet boats and ultra tight racing on America’s Cup courses – what more could you want?  Final day of racing is above.

Reader Rant You know…this whole J70 thing is truly….Sailing Anarchy at its best. A boat design/marketing company that hasn’t said shit about someone pimping their rudder design and building a non-compliant rudder. A class that hasn’t said anything. An owner who hasn’t said anything. A pro, an Olympic medal winner, who hasn’t said anything. If [...]

Like a Ferrari 250 GTO or an original M3, nothing will ever quite approach the perfection of the original SA Tensiometer c. 2006, but B-Squared bowchick Whitney Prossner comes pretty close.  This one shot at the end of the penultimate race day of the J/70 Worlds, where Clean once again proved he should be trimming [...]

For a few years in the 2000s, Sailing Anarchy had a kindred spirit in the UK. His name was Magnus Wheatley and his Rule69 Blog was perhaps the only website besides SA to take on the tough stories in the sport and call a spade a spade. While he’s become something of a ghost over [...]

Local Knowledge The International Moth is an exceptional class, comprised of some of the most talented sailors with a camaraderie that is unparalleled.  As I found out this past Spring in Florida, sailing the boat for the first time, there is a very steep and humbling learning curve.  However once you are foiling (flying) over [...]

Clean Report After two days of qualifiers, we’ve downgraded our expectations at the J/70 Worlds from top ten to top 25, and we’re not even sure that’s enough!  My tactical shortcomings have become obvious, as has the absolutely ridiculous level of competition we’re up against.  We take some solace that we are well ahead of [...]

While its effect was not as huge as many expected, the America’s Cup gave lots of mainstream credibility to ultra-high performance cat racing, and the speed with which everyone from monohull match racers to AC72 skippers have jumped into the various cat classes slowly clawing their way to success. The excitement of foilers and innovative [...]

Update: This rudder is on the J/70 skippered by Bennett Greenwald with tactician Jeff Madragali. We hear there are claims that this was their “practice rudder”. Really? Practice for what, cheating?
