Saturday is a great day for videos, and this one might just open your eyes to a much wider application for foils than we’re used to. This one comes from SA fan and top kiter and SUP stud Kai Lenny, who we first ran into during our G4 sailing last year in the Caribbean. Kai’s got soul, Kai’s got skills, and with this foiling paddleboard he’s got (to paraphrase Commander Cody): “Man, what a ride.”

May 5th, 2016 by admin
The Star Sailors League hit a new high this week, with 90 teams racing the SSL City event in Hamburg Germany for a share of the $100,000 prize purse. In a big nod to series creator Michel Niklas’s vision, young racers are kicking ass after one day – Connecticut crew Josh Revkin sits in first place, while Luke Lawrence and Ian Coleman hold third. Full news over here, and today’s racing begins above at 1000 local time (CET).

Antigua Sailing Week remains one of the fullest ‘race weeks’ available anywhere in the world, and it’s great to see the Caribbean fixture on the upswing.

Results after day one are here.

There aren’t a whole lot of regattas that have their own video morning weather report, but then again Sperry Charleston Race Week isn’t like most regattas, though it does provide a blueprint for cool shit you can do at your own event.
Despite losing offshore circles yesterday (to conditions that ended up being perfectly sailable), the inshore fleets got 3-4 races in and the weather is only getting better in Chucktown. Clean and Mer are blowing it up on CRW’s Facebook Page all day with videos and photos and more, so check out the country’s biggest regatta live today.

You don’t need subtitles to get a kick out of this one, though they’d undoubtedly make it even funnier. Great find from SA’er ‘PaulK’.

With much of America socked in by shitty winter weather, everyone needs a big dose of sailing. So whether you’re looking for some racing to share with your kids or you just need some high speed love, we’ve got a pile of long video and audio so you can get your fix.
The Halls of Innovation
The World Match Racing Tour made its first-ever stop in Fremantle, Australia, with the all-new M32 Cat format wowing thousands of spectators, over a million live and social media viewers, and millions of sports fans on something like 58 networks around the world, and why not? Beaches, bikinis, big breeze, and plenty of high-speed, high-energy action saw big smiles from even the most traditional match racing aficionado. And the biggest surprise of all? A guy whose spent his entire life winning in monohulls crushes the cat guys. Enjoy the entire half-hour long race highlight show above, and try to get past the whiny voice-over.
It’s no secret that the Extreme Sailing Series has been dull as dirt for the past few years, with dwindling audiences bored by the now-ancient Extreme 40 concept sailing in often silly, windless venues. Will the new move to GC32 foilers bring the shine back to the ESS? You’re a better judge than we are, and the best evidence either way comes from Muscat on Day 3 of the recent series opener there. Here’s the full day’s action commentated by the excellent Pete Cumming.
Confession: We weren’t able to get through this one. But if you turn the sound down, it’s eminently watchable. And it only cost ISAF a million bucks.
Marc Glimcher’s chartered RP69 Trebuchet (ex-Vanquish, ex-Moneypenny) went like shit off a shovel to take Line Honors in the inaugural Miami-Havana Race. Here’s the video story of their historic trip (with thanks to our pals at Spinsheet).
For a look at a nice video of the class-winning J/120 Carinthia’s trip, click here.
Okay – this one ain’t like the others, but it’s too cool to leave out. Tom Slingsby shows his reflexes off and keeps several million bucks worth of carbon porn safe. That’s why he gets paid the big bucks.

The Northern Hemisphere has at last escaped the clutches of a winter that never really materialized, but lovers of cold weather sailing can now rejoice – at long last, they’ve got their own documentary.
We’re not recommending your $11.00 purchase of Frostbiters; the quality and aspect ratio of the teaser above make us a bit nervous and 11 bucks for 34 minutes is a bit cheeky. But it costs less than a pair of woolen mittens and about the same as a nice windshield scraper, and serious frostbiters might as well support a guy who took the time to make a movie about your favorite insane sailing discipline.
