Maybe China coverage could beat the world for viewing figures. The sailing community seem to have got behind it as they (CCTV5+) have selected someone who knows what they are talking about to do the commentary. Li Li is not a product of the Chinese Sailing team system having got into sailing on her own account [...]

We’re most of the way through the Sperry/Sailing Anarchy World Tour 2015 and we hope you’ve enjoyed our selection of the world’s most interesting classes and events so far.  Last week, we sent superstar sportboater and video legend Petey Crawford to the Columbia River Gorge to figure out why the sportboat that began the revolution [...]

We don’t have to feign shock at the latest comically silly behavior from the America’s Cup; the release of thousands of balloons into the air to celebrate the end of the otherwise non-noteworthy America’s Cup World Series Göteberg event. It seems like just yesterday when the America’s Cup had partners like Sailors for the Sea [...]

Question of the Week The most common question we’ve gotten over the past month is some version of “what’s going on with/why can’t I watch the America’s Cup like I could last time around?”  With the Gothenberg ACWS event ready for action this weekend, here’s the very bizarre explanation. Last month, Organizers of the America’s [...]

With the Little America’s Cup fast approaching (and the entirely expected but still sad withdrawal of Rob Patterson’s Canadian team, the guy whose dominance nearly killed the C-Class checks in with his latest idea for taking the Cup back to the USA, and in a competition that may be more floating than foiling, it’s clever [...]

A pair of big storms is set to drench the US, but without a major hit in some time, you can smell most of America (aside from the Weather Channel and Home Depot) getting complacent.  Are we so programmed to quickly forget the current tragedy that we’re doomed to repeat it?  A look at New [...]

Brian Hancock takes a look back at some impressive sailor chicks… I watched a really great movie last night. Maidentrip, a documentary about Laura Dekker and her solo circumnavigation to become the youngest person ever to make a lap of the planet. It was great on so many levels but what resonated with me most [...]

So how many more pictures like this and stories like this need to be seen before someone with some integrity, intelligence and balls pulls the plug on Olympic Sailing in this shit swamp? Move this event out of the bay and into the ocean, where at least there is less of a chance that untreated [...]

Not sure if anyone cares but somehow I ended up owning  two old Wylie 31′s known as the Gemini Twins from 76. Cool old cold molded no rules boats designed to race in SF. I’d love to know more history so maybe the forums can help. Bought one in Newport and one in Alameda rumor [...]

Anarchist Rail Meat, owner of the Class 40 Dragon, has plenty to say about their Fastnet… With all due respect, I think Brian Hancock has spent too much time Dreaming about Speed and perhaps has forgotten what sailing and racing truly is all about (see Breathless – ed).  This year’s edition of Fastnet was a [...]

Big Pimpin’ Most of my accumulated knowledge about this masochistic sport we call sailing (formerly yachting, for snobs or traditionalists) has resulted from mishaps, screw-ups or just plain dumb headedness. My issues with sailing began as a youngster. I will never forget my first race and rigging our Pelican dingy on the sandy banks of [...]

The conclusion to Jen Edney’s G4 delivery story.  Part 1 is here. The best watches were typically sitting on 14-22 knots. Shannon would perch up at the helm with various gourmet snacks, euro-techno blaring, and hitting speeds at up to 25 knots. A two time winner of the America’s Cup, he has an almost incessant [...]

After coming in second over the line and fourth on handicap in the Bayview Mackinac Race, Curt Jazwiecki put his Melges 24 Gnarly Ruca into singlehanded mode for some outlaw racing in one of the last anti-sportboat regions left.  Here’s Curt’s blog page, and here’s his story: Putting the M24 in Mac race mode took [...]

If you followed the Transpac this year, then you probably read some of the many shocking reports of trash and (mostly) plastic debris scattered along the race course. Between the Japanese tsunami of 2011, the North Pacific gyre’s unfortunate position in a dominant high between earth’s two largest economies and a couple of el niño-influenced [...]

As Mr. Clean works on the report of his 8-day trip hanging with the US Sailing Team Sperry, combing through the pollution of Guanabara Bay, and the endless ass parade that are Copacabana and Ipanema Beach, we figured we’d share some information with you that explains why we don’t ask Olympic Athletes whether they ‘feel [...]

The Little America’s Cup may have lost a lot of its shine, but if you think the world’s most open development class (and the boat that birthed the modern America’s Cup) is done giving lessons to the world’s high-performance thinking, you’re dead wrong.  Here’s the latest Anarchist team to send in their update for the [...]

While there’s still plenty of International Star racing around the globe, the end of the Olympic career for the venerable keelboat means plenty of extra hulls laying about, and up in Hamburg, Germany, they came up with a great re-use for a pretty hull with no mast; it’s now a launch for the local club.  [...]
