It’s been a shitty start to racing at Hamilton Island Race Week with slim-to-fuck-all breeze for the biggest fleet ever assembled for Australia’s biggest offshore regatta.  Fortunately there’s plenty to see and do in tropical paradise, and whalewatching was clearly the drug of choice for many during the calms.  Nic Douglass grabbed this shot and [...]

“Sailing a boat calls for quick action, a blending of feeling with the wind and water as well as with the very heart and soul of the boat itself. Sailing teaches alertness and courage, and gives in return a joyousness and peace that but few sports afford.” George Matthew Adams Junior Sailing: Why We Do [...]

UPDATE: Oh, look! We were right.  Again. We heard today that the latest savior of the 2017 AC has taken a walk; we’re talking of course of Dr. Harvey Schiller, the Commercial Commissioner of ACEA for the past two years, and as of today, his LinkedIn CV says “ACEA, 2014 to August 2016.  With his [...]

Big Pimpin’ For 30 years racing at the tropical island of Key West has been a midwinter dream and a mainstay on the international calendar: while the rest of the Northern Hemisphere freezes the participants at Quantum Key West Race Week have enjoyed five days of competition in the warm blue-green waters at this ‘southernmost [...]

Early this morning (China Time) it was the turn of the 470 with 5 medals up for grabs. In the Women’s 470 the only way the GBR team could have lost the gold was to score a DSQ and the NZL pairing of Aleh & Powrie to take the race win but that combination was [...]

We don’t know which ass-kissing fluffer wrote this ridiculous waste of time, but we sure like the strong grammatical paragraph it starts with. And the content is even better. And by better me mean worse… Our sport doesn’t have that many celebratory moment. Sure, we have major championships, and the victors congratulated by their peers, but [...]

Annie Haeger and Bri Provencha have been at or near the top of the 470 class for the past couple of years, but when it mattered most, their race and the final shot at the US team’s second medal fell to bits. Leading the medal race for the first two marks and looking like a [...]

How do you prove that a level rating formula works? A good way would be to take two top boats from that formula set them against each other in a decent breeze and see who comes out top. The formula I refer to is the good old International Offshore Rule (IOR) and while the boats [...]

You know by now how queer the ed is for Half Tonners, but this shot shows the ugly side of a rule that had rather bizarre headroom requirement. Low freeboard? No problem, just add a second story! This shot of the Andrieu designed Concorde from the Half Ton Cup by Fionna Brown. Got a comment?

It was quite a day on the waters off Rio today. The Finn Gold was already firmly in Giles Scott’s (GBR) hands but he still gave the Medal Race his full attention claiming 2nd to round off a perfect regatta and an incredible winning margin of 32 points. With the other medals still up for [...]

Not only is that phrase a hackneyed meaningless platitude from the stooges on the right, it also applies to this “free” Formosa 41. The thousands and thousands of dollars that it would take to make this thing even remotely seaworthy and operable would still result in one having a 4 knot shit box. We feel [...]

Guanabara Bay is now ‘Caleb’s House’ after the 26 year old Caleb Paine’s blinder of a Finn finale.  The SoCal native grabbed a right shift to horizon job the fleet from mark 1 to the finish, jumping over Max Salminen and knocking Croatian Ivan Gašpić out of the medals to claim the first US sailing [...]

Big Pimpin’ Previously, if you wanted lightweight rigging without compromising on safety, Future Fibres’ ECsix was your main option. No longer – buyers of a new Southern Spars rig can now opt for ECthree, chosen as the new ClubSwan 50 class rigging, bringing the benefits of multi-strand carbon rigging to yachts that don’t require the [...]

Perhaps that should be the other way round as, in Rio today, nothing happened for most sailors, most of the day and then just as the 49ers finished their racing for the day they got so much wind that for the 49ers bare poles were hard to keep in the air. So no new medals [...]

Well, Swuzzlebubble, the most famous Half Tonner ever is no longer under the expert ownership of Peter Morton, but the boat is still tied for first after Day One of the Half Ton Classic Cup.

We may sometimes look like “The Phaedo Show”, but we never really get tired of watching beautiful shots of the most record-breaking boat in recent memory.  For this year’s Artemis Challenge (whatever that is), they came up a bit short on their own record, but clearly they still had a good time.  Enjoy.

The rampant anti-Israel discrimination that led to Malaysia losing the right to host ISAF/World Sailing events last winter was no outlier.  The Asian island nation just gave up their hosting rights for the 2017 FIFA (soccer) Congress rather than issuing visas to Israeli delegates, using the same bullshit argument that despots and oppressors have used [...]
