There’s something special about a pretty drawing, and Francois Chevalier has long been the world’s most interesting racing yacht illustrator.  He and the Anarchists over at the ChevalierTaglang blog have knocked up not only this awesome drawing of Comanche, but all 5 of the Supermaxis contesting this year’s Hobart. They’ve even got analysis, and thanks [...]

The history is a little foggy, but Lemon & Line was launched one summer night over a healthy ration of Dark ‘n Stormys. Staring down at the weathered turks head bracelet on his wrist, life-long sailor David Norton saw the opportunity for something different. Using only marine grade materials, he set out to make the [...]

With Key West just around the corner it’s well past time to drop weight for the procrastinating grand prix racer; want to learn how the most elite fighters cut 20 pounds in five days?  Don’t try this at home, kids – this is just an illustration of just how crazy weight manipulation can get.  From [...]

Mr. Clean’s headed over to Abu Dhabi next week to bring you more of what a sailor wants to see, but already, SA Middle East Bureau Chief Jeff B is on the ground putting his own slices of life together with some Canon L glass.  He ain’t Borlenghi but he’s got a good eye, and [...]

We were so motivated by the youth-centric feel at last week’s Melges 32 Worlds (and stay tuned for the full movie from that one coming soon) that we arranged a little trans-oceanic conversation between M32 alums Charlie and Mark and the Worlds fleet on Team Alvimedica.  Petey Crawford and the Alvi editing crew put it [...]

We’re not quite sure how we missed this one, but here’s today’s Public Service Announcement:  Think about your GoPro helmet mount kit, and think hard.  Why?  Because there might just be a chance it could turn you into a paraplegic, or worse. All this because of an interview with a lone French F1 journalist – [...]

How long are the entrenched, formulaic junior sailing problems going to continue to foist the piggy, overpriced antiquated  Opti’s and Sabots on a youth would otherwise not even bother setting foot in them if they weren’t forced to?

Question of the Week N00b ‘beezer’ asks: When someone says this is “Grand Prix” racing or a boat setup is “Grand Prix style,” what does that actually mean?  I assume it means a big boat and big bills?  Top of the line everything?  Is there a size cutoff? How do you define “Grand Prix Sailing” [...]

We still cannot for the life of us understand what is going through ISAF, the IOC, and the dozens of governing bodies’ minds when it comes to the dangerous levels of pollution that even Brazil admits it won’t be able to solve as promised to the IOC by 2016, much less this summer’s Test Event.  [...]

Succumbing to the same fear that spurred the creation of what has been dubiously called the ‘biggest spinnaker ever built’ for the Perpetual Loyal, Jim Clark’s big native was seen today sporting her own monster mega-kite, an answer to the 10-degree advantaged soaking power that shot the old Speedboat out the back of Wild Oats XI’s [...]

From a healthy-looking yachtie to a meth-addled trucker in just 3 weeks; Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing war correspondent Matt Knighton shows just how hard life is at the extreme – and there hasn’t even been an extreme leg yet.  And he’s got the least physically demanding job on the boat. Nice work from Ian Roman.  [...]

The required “bad-ass” look in big boats is the black on black look. How long until it’s white on white? These are a couple of bad-ass MC 38′s racing for the best black look. They both won.

After a thrilling final Team Brunel has won the second leg of the Volvo Ocean Race. The Dutch Volvo Ocean Race boat sailed over the finish line in Abu Dhabi on Saturday morning 16 minutes ahead of the second-placed boat Dongfeng Race Team. It took skipper Bouwe Bekking and his men 23 days and 16 [...]

Dongfeng Racing hangs on to a slim lead over Bouwe and the Brunel boys, with Ian Walker’s Abu Dhabi team just a few miles back with a hair over 100 miles to the finish.  And when the sun comes up in Abu Dhabi today, the Volvo Ocean Race folks will bring the last piece of [...]

Chris Nicholson sat down with us on Friday for his first real interview since his return to civilization, and with the help of about a hundred Anarchist-sourced questions we had an emotional, hour-long discussion that should answer all your questions about the grounding, the evacuation, the cleanup, the rescue, the salvage, and the future.  With [...]

You hear it all the time— our sport needs new blood. And over the past 20 years here at the Manhattan Sailing School and Yacht Club, we’ve done tons to get new sailors — kids and adults— into the sport. We’ve taught thousands and thousands to sail, and have just under a thousand members. This [...]

This is NOT some high-end riggers supply drawer.  It’s not the remains of four skiffs crashing into each other, either.  Nope – it’s the meat in the middle of the modern Mach 2 Moth – the junction between flight and control.  With canting rigs added to the already silly amount of controls on the world’s [...]

As expected, the Anarchists got right into the Rambler discussion after we posted “Sawtooth” the other day; we know of course that there’s nothing particularly new about Dr. Frank Fish’s ‘tubercles’ – we first reported on them back in 2008.  And there’s nothing new about them being on boats; after all, the guy who started [...]
