We get lots of e-mail. We hope the kid gets some love… Young Orri (11) is super keen on his Sailing, unlike school! Unfortunately for various reasons I do not have the resources available to support him fully, hence this plea. Orri has completed his RYA certificates to stage three and should have his stage [...]

VOR The cold war is over and the action in Leg 7 has heated up to a red-hot intensity in the second week. The fleet sailed down from the ice exclusion zone into warmer, more southerly latitudes, crossing the Azores High to reach balmy trade winds. Any crossing of a high pressure zone is unpredictable, [...]

US-One might be leading by 7 points, but a double points, ‘Final Four-only’ format for the last half of the final day of the M32 Series means anything can happen and probably will.  Enjoy more live racing action from 1400 local/0800 EST, with the dulcet tones of Mr. Clean coming at you from Oslo.  Wanna [...]

Tom Ehman’s Golden Gate Yacht Club Challenge already made its first political change – it’s now known as the SF Yacht Racing Challenge to keep from pissing off the rest of the Bay Area clubs.  One sneaky anarchist attended an Ehman presentation about this ‘outside the box’ event for the age-advanced, and here are the [...]

The M32 Series is shaping up to be the kind of fun that so much of top-level racing lacks.  With plenty of smack talk, apres-sail parties open to the public, an extremely approachable fleet and race village, and the latest live web coverage tech, it’s the most modern racing circuit currently in existence. Wanna know [...]

There’s some great banter up and down the docks on a sunny, gorgeous day in Norway, and Taylor Canfield’s US-One has finally got their shit sorted out.  They’re chasing down Jes Gram-Hansen’s Trifork team, just one point out of the lead.  The super-short course format is exciting, the breeze is a perfect 10-12 knots, and [...]

“The best Volvo Ocean Race stopover I’ve ever been to,” said one 10 year VOR veteran. “Way, way better than anything AC34 did in San Fran,” said a former ACEA staffer. “The best crowd I’ve seen at an American sailing event since the 12 meter days in Newport, and maybe even bigger than those days,” [...]

With five different boats winning the first five races of the M32 Series opener in Oslo, calling the racing ‘tight’ is something of an understatement.  The one boat off the pace is first-time M32 competitor Eivind Melleby’s Team Hydra from Norway, and here’s a shot showing their form on a puffy day in the Oslo [...]

“Thanks for running that piece last week about Tom Ehman’s idea for a 12-meter regatta on SF Bay. It got me thinking. While I can definitely see a demand for a racing series that isn’t out on the ragged edge of foils and wing-sails—but it seems a huge shame to retreat to boats of a [...]

SCOTW Aly Di Nas tells us about her first time… In these moments of sailing being a “dying sport”, there’s lots of discussion about how to get people who left the sport to come back to racing. I’m one of those people who came back, many years after fleeing quite possibly the worst junior sailing [...]
