We’ve made it to Miami! After hunkering down through hurricane Hermine in Savannah, we pushed south through a maze of inlets and waterways along the Georgia coast towards Florida. Strong tides and light winds brought a lot of Mirage drive peddling or “miraging” as we call it, but as we crossed into Florida the conditions [...]

We thought we were going to be focusing on the Etchells Worlds IJ granting the Event Chairman redress for two different UFD scores, but as we were writing that one up, something way better came up for our monthly look at protests and sailors behaving badly.  And it’s a hell of a story.

Sailing movies are almost universally awful, but there are a few that we hold dear.  “Wind” for obvious and ironic reasons, “White Squall” for a fascinating dramatic take on a horrifying event, Dead Calm for Nicole Kidman’s nakedness,  Morning Light for some of the best offshore sailing shots of its time, and Master and Commander [...]

Having just passed away on Tuesday, we remember long time big boat racer and North Sails owner Terry Kohler today.  Having cemented his legacy in the sport of sailing when he bought North Sails from Lowell North back in the 80s, and over his remaining years, this larger-than-life Wisconsin character continued to touch thousands in [...]

If anyone ever faced a challenge running a regatta it was the organisers of this year’s China Club Challenge Match in Xiamen China. As you will have seen from a recent article just a matter of hours before the practice day Typhoon Meranti descended on the island city. Well descended is perhaps not the correct [...]

Clean Report I’d already bailed from the 1D35 I usually race in Detroit for this weekend’s Bayview Long Distance Race, but when my wife’s plans to hold a garage sale changed an hour before getting a text from Rick Warner on Friday, I jumped at the chance to sail Rick’s ORMA 60 Arete in the [...]

Carnival Cruises have long been reputed to be a shit show – there’s a reason industry insiders call it ‘Cannibal Cruise Lines’, after all.  But this video assembled by GCaptain from a few sources shows another side of the Carnival Vista – the ruthless power of its thrusters.  Watch as the concrete docks of Messina, [...]

So now that the Dee Smith sham resulted in the failure that those with a soul hoped it would be, (no medal) we wonder, are sponsors such as Sperry going to say anything about their name being associated with this embarrassment? Will any heads roll at US Failing for this? Will there be any blowback, [...]

Local Knowledge As if running what has recently been called in the media “the most genuine regatta in China” and maintaining that standard wasn’t enough along comes mother nature to add a little ‘spice’ just in case you had started to get a little blasé about things.
