When I was little, we found a man. He looked like – like, butchered. The old woman in the village crossed themselves… and whispered crazy things, strange things. “El Diablo cazador de hombres.” Only in the hottest years this happens. And this year, it grows hot. We begin finding our men. We found them sometimes [...]

Big Pimpin’ “Nothing like driving a house at 25 knots, jumping off waves…” is how one crew member described his first 24 hours on-board the 80’ Morelli designed catamaran, Fat Cat, in the Caribbean 1500 race in 2011 which they won.  Fat Cat, originally a Morelli 65 has been “tweaked”, if you can call it [...]

Phil Sharp is racing an unbelievable story in The Transat bakerly. Not only has he suffered zero power for 60% of the race, forcing him to sail blind, race with no comms, and eat dry dehydrated food with a faulty desalinator, he’s also had various sails shred, the worst being the main. As Phil was [...]

French Minista Olver Jehl set off over the weekend to try for the fastest Mini time ever from New York to The Lizard aboard his Zigoneshi.  Instead, he established perhaps the fastest time ever for a Mini skipper to go from harbor to helicopter. Jehl barely made it to the Hudson Canyon before holing his [...]

While the public perception of ‘yachting’ and sailing as ultra-exclusive (thanks, Rolex!) is probably the biggest obstacle to the sport’s growth in America, access to the water runs a close second, so we’re stoked to see at least one area successfully fighting off the greed of yet another useless luxury development that will forever close [...]

He’s small and he’s shy, but Andrew Macdougall is something of a quiet giant in the history of foiling, having created the only successful volume production foiler in history with the Bladerider and then doing it again with the Mach 2. If that wasn’t enough, he also built a powerful windsurf and moth sail company [...]

Big Pimpin’ Many of our younger readers know J/Boats as the “establishment brand” of asymmetric racer/cruisers typified by the J/70, 80, 88, and 111 that dominate inshore one-design fleets and the 120, 122, 109, and 105 that typically make up somewhere around half of most handicap fleets.  But few of them realize that with the [...]

Clean Report After what was the single most exciting day of match racing I’ve ever watched or commentated in my life, I’m still a little speechless; I’ve never been much of a fan of match racing, and I’d long ago gotten used to a format where the boat that wins the start sails off to [...]

We’ve been bitching about the Rio Olympics for a long time now, however quaint our original complaint – sewage and garbage-laden Guanabara Bay – seems in light of recent developments; something of a coup d’etat/impeachment, a crumbling economy, and Zika, which blows them all away.
