Sailing in the Mediterranean sea, it is quite common to see sailboats using just the jib in any wind conditions. In coastal cruising this easy style jib-only is quite popular in the summer season. You don’t have to repeat to the crew to be careful of the booms when gybing or tacking, to the sheet [...]

The International Moth Worlds continues in Japan this week, with the event again starting off with boat-and-sailor-breaking waves and breeze – just like the 2015 event on Australia’s Mornington Pensinsula. Injuries and boat breakages have made alphabet soup of a shallow 68-boat fleet lacking all but one of the past ten World Champs, but between [...]

As usual, we are half a year late, but at long last, the soon-to-be-world-famous Sailing Anarchy Podcast has begun! Our first episode was the result of a late night flight to Boston, a trudge to the shores of Naragansett Bay (via the liquor store), and an decreasingly sober 3-hour conversation with the always interesting Chris [...]

Here is the latest on the Melges family drama. As a victim of  draconian court-mandated divorce custody restraints a few years ago, I know of the pain and despair that one can feel when the court decides to punish one side or the other. And they do punish. Always. I don’t know what the full [...]

The Hokulea project has been racking up the miles (most recently seen dockside during Charleston Race [...]

Mankind has been decimating oceans since the first hominid figured out how to sew a net, and the net effect on sea life – fish stocks a tiny fraction of their size just a few decades ago, coral reef and major species extinction, and worldwide pollution – has been horrifying.  But one group of critters [...]
