We’ll be the first to tell you that we think the BBS is kinda bullshit. Lottsa people running there around who are absolutely sure that vanilla ice cream oozes out of their anal openings over-managing and constantly fucking it up. As such, we love this post in our world famous forums. Consider this our one [...]

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 [...]

The idea came after a freak rain storm flooding the field at the National Stadium in Warsaw, Poland just before a major game in the Football World Cup Eliminations. They could not close the roof in time causing the match being called off. A couple of guys cheered the crowed up by jumping onto the [...]

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 [...]

We’re stoked to see so many long time SA contributors rounding out both the in-house and on-board media spots for the upcoming Volvo; here’s a spectacular look at Rob Salthouse at the helm of the Vestas Wind during their qualifier from Irish photographer and OBR Brian Carlin, who’s got more in-board reporting miles than anyone on [...]

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? Who in the hell is going to fall for that? Among other questions, who ordered it, who built it, why was it ordered and built, and how [...]

We have always thought that Team SCA was a bit removed from transparency – an oddly closed team that doesn’t say too much, but maybe, based on their statement below,  we can see why. No clear, established skipper/leader is not how you win, and only one reason why they won’t… Team SCA has, from the [...]

Pistols at dawn.  Chevys at Daytona. Vipers off Long Beach.  Pick your dueling weapons carefully, and watch out for the quick draw artists, a/k/a wily class veterans.  Heading into the final day of the Viper 640 North Americans at Alamitos Bay Yacht Club, the title looked to be class newcomer Jeff Grange’s for the taking.

We’re fortunate to have made some very intelligent friends over the decade or so we’ve been working for Sailing Anarchy, and when they ask us serious questions about our reporting, we listen.  So when we  got an email a couple of months ago about the tone of some of our America’s Cup editorials from one [...]

This weekend an amazing feat was accomplished by a brave 17 year old sailor.

He left Port Dalhousie at 11 am on September 6, and arrived at Ashbridges Bay Yacht [...]

Reader Rant Reading your “sailing the dream” news, I see you do care of our beloved Route du Rhum. Considering the 80 and more entries, you might guess that there will be some true anarchists in there. So you’d better keep an eye on Vincent LANTIN. No chance to win with his old Class40, but he’ll be [...]
