I first met Ellen MacArthur in 1999. She was relatively unknown then, at least to the sailing community. She was a young British girl that had done a bit of sailing. I had heard of her because she had sailed the Mini-Transat and I was a big fan of the event. I got a call [...]

While in remote and uninhabited Salomon Atoll, Chagos (Indian Ocean) this month, a 48’ sloop went on the reef during a squall at 0-dark-30. She bounced nearly 1000’ through a maze of coral. It took 12 hours and much effort by 10 cruisers to protect the hull from damage and get her out and anchored [...]

This is the greatest (by that we mean most retarded) headline ever, one found in a PR email we received today. What’s even better is that despite the “reassuring” headline, the actual message is contained in the body is far from that: One week since the world was left shocked at the news of an [...]

If one measure of a person’s worth is the impact they make on those around them, Trevor Moore was one of the most highly-valued sailors of his generation.  We salute the thousands who tried in vain to solve the mystery of Trevor’s loss; from Facebook, Kyle Kusunose writes about it (and thanks to Amory Ross [...]

This one is a bit excruciating to watch unless you are a foiling fanboy, and we admit our fanboyness for AMAC’s new Waszp thanks to the decent shot we think it has to be a game changer.  So here’s 46 minutes of Andrew introducing his price-point, one-design foiling moth to the world at The Foiling [...]

Penalty Box Productions’ Petey Crawford and Melges 24 Class President Jens Wathne take a short break from the action at the M24 Worlds in Middlefart, Denmark, where moth and 49er rivals Bora Gulari and Chris Rast have been battling it out all week.  Rast capitalized on yet more mostly non-planing conditions to take three bullets [...]

Longtime singlehander Tim Kent sent us this report from the deck of Areté, the Great Lakes’ new king of speed. It’s great to finally see a real, modern ocean racer come to freshwater sailing – even if she’s more than a decade old herself. Expect to see some records fall this summer, especially if the [...]

Long the place for the dreamers and tinkerers to play, the evolution of top-end sail racing has finally made winged catamarans not only technologically interesting, but actually cool.   How else do you explain all the good looking youth engineers throwing their souls into the Quebecois Rafale Little America’s Cup project? Here’s an update from Canada, [...]

Providing nearly all the answers to the numerous reasons why normal humans don’t buy moths, Amac’s new Waszp website went live today.  We hear it will be a while before the boat’s really figured out, but as the only guy to have ever been successful at selling production foilers, we wouldn’t bet against him!  Check [...]

Being There Ullman Sails Long Beach Race Week is usually a reminder of what happens when big breeze and Southern California sailors interact. It reminds us that most of the weekend warriors are not used to much more than the average 10-12 kts that frequent the best coast. Torn spinnakers, ripped jibs, flogging mains and [...]

Here in Columbia SC at the Ida Lewis US Nationals, we had a great 2 days of clinics and  coaching with plenty of wind.  Sunday, the first day of racing saw light shifty winds from 5 to 10 mph. After 4 races, Stephanie Houck and Camille White from the Annapolis Yacht Club lead with impressive [...]

The Swiss sailor Laurent Bourgnon was reported missing on Thursday after failing to return from a diving trip in French Polynesia. Laurent who, you ask? Well let me clarify that. If you are a non-European you probably have never heard of him and wonder why this is big news. If you are Swiss or French [...]

Don’t expect a lot of excitement from the conditions of the final Volvo Ocean Race In-Port, but do expect some fireworks between MAPFRE and Alvimedica, for whom the final silliness means the difference between 4th and 5th overall.  Plenty of pride is in play as well, with four boats separated by just four points in [...]

Mr. Clean’s final dock walk of the 2015 Volvo Ocean Race is a doozie.  The king of Spain, the princess of Sweden, and plenty of last minute inside knowledge of the boats, the crews and what’s to play for on what is likely a very light air race in the land of the Vikings.  Shot [...]

It may not be quite as well-produced at the wildly successful Alex Thomson mast walk (that helped him land Mercedes-Benz as a main sponsor), but it’s way cooler; watch danish kitesurfing sensation Nick Jacobsen jump from the headboard of Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing’s mainsail…and land it.
