In 2006, the Pindar team launched the most powerful Open 60 ever built – a title the boat would never relinquish.  Unfortunately for Mike Sanderson (for whom the boat was designed and built) and later Alex Thomson, the boat was never a contender.  Too powerful and draggy, too hard to sail, and too physically demanding [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
