What is it about King Harbor Pier?  Just 10 months ago a Martin 242 got beaten to a pulp in the same exact spot as this little S2; the Martin got the worst of it, but the S2 has some issues too.  Nice work from the Redondo Beach Fire Department rescue swimmer who dove in off their Harbor Patrol Boat.

UPDATE: Video of the fisherman casualty being winched up into the helicopter is on the web, and we note that he may have been dead before he ever got to the hospital.  Investigation underway and VOR finally confirms the death hours after numerous other sources.

If there is a mild winner in this whole situation (and it’s a morbid thought), it’s Charlie Enright, who sat out this leg to deal with health issues in his family.  We doubt he is feeling particularly lucky tonight.

More reports as available.

The terrifying nature of old men in powerful boats comes alive in this dashcam video from the Columbia River.  The video came out with news of a lawsuit filed by one of the jumpees, off-duty cop Bryan Maess, who alleged maybe, possibly, just a tiny touch of negligence and recklessness from 75-year old Marlin Larsen, the driver who nearly killed him and his fishing buddies.  Larsen is a clearly a gem of a man, telling county police investigators that ‘he couldn’t see where he was driving because he was sitting down and the dash of his boat was blocking his view. Larsen said he probably should have been standing, according to the sheriff’s report, which notes Larsen uses a motorized scooter to get around on land.’

Despite facing criminal charges for his recklessness, Larsen said that he wasn’t using his cellphone while driving his Bayliner and referred to such allegations as “fake news.” Larsen also said a lawsuit seemed unnecessary because the people in the Weldcraft weren’t hurt badly.  We think Larsen’s right to drive a boat seems unnecessary…

It may be one of the most isolated sailing venues on Earth, but almost 60 SB20s gathered up in the River Derwent off Hobart for their Worlds this week and had some of the best sailing of their lives.  French and UK teams took the top 5 spots, with the fledgling downunder fleet mixing it up with the rest of the Italian and French internationals who made the bucket list trek.  Good photos over here.

Our Volvo Ocean Race coverage is brought to you by Musto, Official Apparel Provider for the 2017/18 VOR.

Matt and Clean are back with Episode 3 of “The Boatfeed!”, featuring the dynamic duo’s analysis of the exciting Leg 3 of the VOR via a close look at the best raw video coming off the boats.

This ep includes a great interview with longtime SA favorite Jen Edney, straight off the winning Leg 3 boat.  The wward-winning adventure photographer talks about getting smashed in the face and almost fracturing her skull, the brutality of the Southern Ocean, and why, even with scars and bandages all over, she can’t wait to get back out there.

In yet another new feature, we ‘Dial-A-Fan’ and speak with lifetime VOR/Whitbread Superfan and Sailing Anarchist John Callender to find out why, how, and for who he spends hours and hours every week categorizing and tagging VOR videos for the JBC systems database of Raw Video. Find his awesomely useful database here.

Matt and Clean continue to post and analyze photos and videos from every leg of the Volvo Ocean Race – stay in touch with them and the content:

Despite what looks to us like a pretty clear foul at the start from WOXI, Comanche has jumped out to a big lead on the fleet in the Sydney to Hobart Race and it looks like she’s closing in on the race record! Jump over there for the latest.

We take back all the nice things we said about the CYCA, who apparently got everything all sorted out for their Youtube stream of the start – except forgetting about the copyright-protected ads for the PGA Tour that ran on their Channel 7-sourced feed.  Youtube killed the video, and somehow the CYCA has not been able to solve the problem, leaving us with the no-sound Livesaildie video of the port/starboard incident above.

Our VOR coverage brought to you by Musto, Official Clothing Supplier of the Volvo Ocean Race.

MAPFRE scored a huge double-points win in the big Southern Ocean leg of the VOR, thanks in part to Dongfeng blowing out one of their canting-keel attachments and now fighting to hold on to second place, to say nothing of the fact that they don’t have a complete stopover in Melbourne to effect a proper repair.  Watch it live here, and go to the thread for the juiciest action.
