Tired of the NFL?  Looking for something to replace 3 hours of Formula 1?  Or just looking for some sailing to share with your family?  Have we got a Sunday for you!

Goodi Again!


The softspoken ginger Brit smacked up the world’s fastest sailors enroute to his Moth world title earlier this year, so how the hell does he go from that to a title in one of the slowest boats out there?  Watch Paul Goodison take his first Star Sailors League World Title in an exciting day of knockout racing from our friends at the SSL.

The Reviewers

Before watching any of today’s Volvo action, get the full pro review of the Leg 2 on-board content from Matt Knighton and Mr. Clean along with a good discussion of the Scallywag controversy and ‘Dial-A-Pro’ with Sander Van Der Borch on Episode 2 of The Boatfeed.

Drivin’ On 9

What makes a great driver below 40 degrees South?  Watch and learn.

Walk It Off

Not the best Dock Walk in the world, but we do get a little bit of Martine Grael, so we’ll take it.

Send It Off

Short and sweet with gorgeous visuals, as the Cape Doctor sends the fleet off quick and live earlier this morning.  Track ’em here.

It’s an ad for DJI drones, but it’s also a portfolio from one of our favorite filmmakers, so spend a minute with this sparkling aerial video shot during Oracle’s Bermuda AC effort.  Sam Greenfield was the first guy to run a drone from an ocean racing boat and he’s continued to innovate since. If you were wondering how his recent Volvo OBR drone work is so much better than anyone else’s, look above – a year of fat budgeted training on the Great Sound helped Sam become sailing’s standard in flying visuals.

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.  Peyron, Goodison, Bruni and Cammas join the Grael brothers and the best Starboat drivers and crew in the world for the fully live-streamed action from the Bahamas.

Watch it all live above.

A cool, multi-cam 360 degree look at the latest-launched Ultim, Banque Pop XXXWTF.  Foiling on the ocean last week to 42 knots in this drone vid.

And Vincent Riou (longtime open 60 PRB skipper) says he’s joining the Ultim game too.  The world’s fastest fleet of racing boats may soon be the world’s biggest offshore multihull fleet!

Cruising is at its best when it’s about uncovering mysteries and discovering new spots, and when world-famous snowboarder Travis Rice and big-wave surfer Ian Walsh are the ones doing the searching, we’re all in for a treat.  It doesn’t hurt to have former Volvo Ocean Race filmmaker Amory Ross aboard either, and a Gunboat 48 (awesomely named Falcor) ain’t a bad ride to do it in.

The trailer above is for what we expect to be a series about Travis and Ian’s search filmed during their 2500 Tahiti to Hawaii trip.  First real short film drops next Thursday, and we’ll have it right here.  Thanks to Gunboat for letting us know about it, and to ROAM and whatever the hell Gnarbox is for making it happen.

As many of us prayed for, the next America’s Cup will indeed be a flying one.  No keel, ballasted foils, and a bow profile that looks more like an alien critter than a boat.  All in all, we dig, and how about the fact that it’s actually early?  Discuss here, full release from ETNZ here.

To go back and listen to Dalts explaining all about their decisionmaking process, go back to this podcast from earlier in the fall.

After a little soul-searching in Kiwilandia, our old friend and filmmaker Petey Crawford seems to have gotten his groove back, at least if you go by this very well-produced video promo for the C&C 30 Winter Series.  More from the Class:

Entering its 4th year, the C&C 30 One Design Class is working hard to generating some new excitement. The group of owners in the US are committed to maintaining a regatta schedule designed to attract current and prospective class members and get participation numbers back up to double digits.  There are obviously a few lingering questions about the future of the class and new builds with US Watercraft auction scheduled for tomorrow Nov 11th. However, there are a lot of boats ready to be sailed and a common goal within the current ownership to get boats on the starting line. This isn’t your friend’s uncle’s C&C 30, and the One Design class is a great boat to fill the gap in the 30-35′ sportboat range left by the demise of the US Melges 32 class.

When 2 hurricanes devastated the Caribbean islands and therefore the 2017/2018 Winter schedule, everyone decided that Fort Lauderdale would be a great alternative and the plan was put in motion. With 4 regattas schedule,  there are some great opportunities for some awesome one design action to attract teams from across the US and offer a chance for new teams to dip their toes in the C&C 30 OD class and charter one of the available boats. Check it out and make sure to contact [email protected] for any questions about charters, boats for sale etc. He will direct you to the appropriate person.  Come to Lauderdale this winter. It’s Time To Get Down!

The International 14 continues to be one of the world’s toughest dinghies, and not only to sail well – sometimes just to sail.  Skinny and difficult to get around while carrying a massive sail plan, the double trap I-14 makes great sailors, but only after making you look like a no-talent clutz.

Nice work from the Toronto skiff fleet’s Matt D on the video compilation of 22 full capsizes during a recent frostbite event.
