Big Pimpin’ As a youth I cut my teeth in offshore racing in the early 80s off the West Australia coast.  These low lying shores had been littered through the centuries by sailing ships driven hard upon the reefs by the onshore prevailing winds. A typical event would include a 100 mile bash to windward, [...]

So other than this most recent Transpac sucking for most everyone, thee one theme that is the most disturbing is the amount of trash that every boat encountered.

Has some of the true adventure been lost from modern day ocean racing? My first long offshore race was the Parmelia Race, a 13,000 mile jaunt from England to Australia. Nothing compares with rolling through the Southern Ocean trying to snatch a sun sight after five days of grey skies knowing that you are fast [...]

For almost two years we have been railing against the ridiculous state of affairs at Rio’s Olympic sailing venue, but official reactions from ISAF, the IOC and pretty much every other organization with an interest has been to plunge their heads deeply into sand.  We’ve wondered how long they could go on without meaningful action, [...]

First there was moth.  Then AC72.  Then C-Cat.  Then there was GC32, then SL33, FP, FCS20, Stiletto, that orange scow thing, and the hits keep on coming.  What do they all have in common?  You aren’t going to race across the ocean in one. That changes today, because the first ocean-ready racing foiler is now [...]

Who says beach cats can’t race offshore?  Randy Miller’s M32 catamaran horizoned the 100-ish NM Santa Barbara to King Harbor fleet this weekend, beating Bill Gibbs 52-foot cat Afterburner by almost three hours and the first monohull – a TP52 – by almost two and a half. Here’s Randy’s report, from the thread. We deployed [...]

Even the most corporate-raiding sailor still considers himself something of a conservationist; the time we all spend amongst nature’s beauty means we pay more attention than most to the problems facing our natural world.  But to the overwhelming majority of sailors, seamanship and respect for other vessels is at least as powerful as our love [...]
