Two weeks ago in Sydney, a 40kt Squall hit the manly 16ft Skiff fleet and flattened nearly all of the 20+ fleet. The shot shows one of the boats being blown down the harbour on its own leaving the 3 crew to swim 200mtrs to get back on. – Michael Chittenden.

Spotted at Woolwich Dock in Sydney, the super-maxi Comanche is sporting a new coach-house structure over its twin companionways. Looking more like Darth Vader’s helmet than a piece of boatbuilding, the whole thing appears to be removable. If so, then maybe it’s for crew protection during long deliveries and comes off for races such as […]

A boat building party! Four new converts to Mini Skeetering, all from other landsailers and iceboats, friends I sail with regularly. John is hosting this woodfest in his cabinet shop in Lakeside, MT, and is eminently prepared, with frames cut and coated, stringers milled, and skins epoxied. As a result, we have Phil’s boat ready […]

Clean Report In a decision that will sound alarm bells across dozens of international sport governing bodies, the European Commission yesterday ruled that the International Skating Union’s rules preventing skaters from competing in ‘unauthorized’ events are illegal and must be abolished within 90 days.  What does this have to do with sailing?  If you really […]

Thank christ cooler heads prevailed in the ludicrous VOR Rule 69 protest lodged against Scallywag was dismissed. As we understand it, Dawn Riley (and perhaps others) filed a complaint at the World Yacht Racing Forum last week about said “incident”. That went to World Sailing, as there is a new procedure for all WS sanctioned events, where basically […]

Star boats may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re into traditional racing there are few things better.  Kathleen and the old guys are doing a great job keeping it interesting, and the fleet gets whittled down today.  Watch live above.

UPDATE: An initial version of this story inaccurately wrote that the VOR initiated the Rule 69 protest discussed below.  We have corrected the story, and we add that we’re told there was more than one complaint that initiated the hearing, including one from Oakcliff Sailing’s Dawn Riley and one from a ‘concerned sailor’ in Hong […]

It’s pretty cool to see that an insane amount of perseverence on the part of Michel Niklas and the Star Sailors League folks has finally borne real fruit: First, their achieving the rare Special Events status from ISAF last month, and now firing off the opening gun on the most star-studded fleet in SSL history.  […]
