A scary little shaft near the Chesapeake Bay Bridge during a nice Saturday sail.  Tip ‘o the hat to Spinsheet.

Right now the only way you can see Christine Knowlton’s blind sailing documentary is if you still own a DVD player, but her site says it will be available on demand soon; until then, the easiest way to see Sense The Wind is to stop in on one of her month of screenings throughout SoCal and the Northeast US if you want to take a look at her award-winning work.  See it, share it with the challenged folks you know, and buy a copy of the DVD here to support Christine as she spreads the love about another thing our great sport can do. To see if Knowlton can come talk to your foundation, hit her up on Facebook here.

The yacht Quokka shows us all just how not to round The Needles during this clip of the Round The Island (UK) Race.  You can see a bunch of whacked our wreck dancers standing on the same bricks in the very cool video here.

With the Coutts money train out of steam, it looks like it’s open season for those posting those ultra-restricted America’s Cup videos.  They’re all over Youtube and Facebook, and props to the RNZYS for letting the public watch what they want regardless of whatever bullshit deal ACEA sold to the networks. Here’s the entire Race 9 as broadcast live last Monday.

It’s not like anyone watched anyway, as you’ll note from the final ratings for the last weekend of AC racing in US markets...beaten this time by drag racing, college baseball, and the US Track & Field champs, at a Nielsen number that’s  roughly half the San Francisco ratings.  Bravo! [/sarcasm]

It’s about twice as long as it needs to be, but this slow-mo video of ETNZ fans’ agony and ecstasy in 2013 and 2017 digs straight into your heart no matter where you call home.  We’ve got plenty more AC content coming your way over the next week, but nothing like this – a window into just how much winning the AC means for a tiny nation at the end of the world.

The most watched thing on the sailing social media last week wasn’t the America’s Cup – it was the Toyota/Vodafone live stream about the America’s Cup!  Despite ACEA trying to shut them down time and time again, Martin Tasker and Peter Lester kept pushing their Kiwi-friendly narrative to the world, and it worked very, very well.

Whilst the final Cup presser was reasonably good (especially with Dalts taking the piss out of Russell @28:50), this set of live-recorded interviews with all the key figures from the ETNZ base has quite a bit more information than that, and with a very fun backdrop.  Watch it all for the keys to their victory, their disintegrating daggerboard, and much more.

One of the desperation moves of the AC came when last week, Coutts brought in spanish superstar design consultant Juan Barcopero to help troubleshoot their massive speed disadvantage.  Fortunately, an OTUSA Anarchist caught it on video, and we’ve finally translated and subtitled it.  Enjoy this rare look inside the secret world of the Oracle Design Team.

This could very well be the final briefing of the ACRM age. regatta director Iain Murray and head judge Richard Slater answer our questions and lay out Day 5 of the 35th America’s Cup Match.

While the Bermudians should be proud of providing an excellent in-person experience for fans of America’s Cup racing, the media output from the event has been – until quite recently – far weaker, with the dull press conferences at the centerpiece.  Fortunately they allowed longtime Chicago media pro (and F-18 and A-Cat racer) Laura Muma to take over last week, and with Mr. Clean showing the rest of the reporters how to get their hands dirty after his arrival, things are finally getting interesting.  Still, we absolutely love this shot posted by Facebooker MOA BEER last night of Pete “Sam The Eagle” Burling and Jimmy “Rowlf The Dog” Spithill.

To watch Jimmy finally begin to crush under the pressure of a woefully unprepared and underperforming America’s Cup effort, head into last night’s Press Conference, below.  Two more races today (if necessary)…and we’ve learned not to make any predictions when things are on Match Point.

Is today the day the battle really begins?  Maybe so, but you’ll need a good weather report first.  Here’s that and much more as shot live just a few minutes ago in the BDA. Click for a discussion of yesterday’s penalties (with data), discussion of rudder and board mods, and other rules questions answered by AC head judge Richard Slater and regatta director The Big Fella, plus a bonus interview with commentator Simon Shaw and legendary Kiwi broadcast voice Peter Lester.
