Inspired by the piece above, and our spotlight on the brand new J/V 36 NightShift we thought it might be interesting to have our world-wide Anarchists send in a pic and short blurb on whatever new-to-you boats you have.

Big Pimpin’ Almost every raceboat of any size built in the past two decades has been fitted with a carbon spar, as have many larger cruiser/racers and every large sailing yacht of any type over 20m. The advantages in safety and performance are just too great to ignore, and composite spar manufacturing has been refined […]

We loathe Ryan Zinke. A gun loving, right-wing douchebag who along with criminal Scott Pruitt, is trying to gut our national parks and environmental protections that keep their oil and coal buddies from raping our precious lands. But even an anti-american prick like him can very rarely do the right thing once in a blue […]

Who is the best sailor in the world? This is something that can be determined subjectively, as happens annually in the Rolex World Sailor of the Year awards. But would it ever be possible to calculate this mathematically? Obviously there are inherent problems in a sport as diverse as sailing. How can you compare the […]

We suspect that the world of superyachts  is a very intricate dance of money, power, prestige with a fair amount of fuckery as well…. A court in Indonesia has ruled that the superyacht Equanimity must be returned to its owner. The 91m Oceanco was seized in Bali in February by Indonesian authorities at the behest […]

The US Sailing proposal is just sort of lame. There should be medals given for backroom politics, because there’s a massive brawl going on over all this around the world. The winner is going to be Markus Schwendtner, who runs the kite mafia, and basically has control of enough votes to get whatever he wants. […]

Everything about the Ultim class of giant, singlehanded trimarans is over the top.  The size, speed, and power output of these monsters is hard to comprehend unless you’ve been on one, and the speed at which bad things happen is truly stunning.  All of this makes it a surprise that we haven’t seen more of […]

In F1 Lewis Hamilton knows where his power is coming from because his Mercedes is fueled up before the race with a carefully calculated amount of fuel that depends on conditions, track layout, driving style and so on.

Brian Hancock’s Say It article raised some hackles. We like this post from Ryley in our forum… “The VOR, as fun as it can be to follow, violates the first rule of destination sailing – never try to sail to a schedule because you’ll get burned.
