Spotty management and bizarre decisionmaking may have marred the history of the Volvo Ocean Race’s On-Board Reporter (née MCM) program, but there’s no disputing that the decision to bring specialist media crews on board for the world’s biggest ocean race was a landmark one. Everything from the Vendee Globe to the Sydney Hobart Race to the America’s Cup has felt the influence of the program, especially as guys like Matt Knighton, Amory Ross, Brian Carlin, and Sam Greenfield have brought their training and experiences from the VOR into other forms of racing.
After three mistake-filled editions of the program, the 2017 version looks to finally reach maturity under the umbrella of progressive new CEO Mark Turner , especially if the VOR hangs onto some of the more crucial management players in the last race – guys like the indomitable Mark Covell and TV boss Leon Sefton – and embraces the vast changes to the media landscape over the past five years. The next edition will mark great leaps forward in both the distribution of content from on board and the technology employed to capture it, and you have a chance to shape it.
We like the campaign the VOR just launched to get new blood into the OBR spot – called #ifyoudiedtomorrow, it’s pretty compelling shit. Given the dominance of SA’ers in OBR spots during the past couple of editions, you guys have a great shot at getting in, so watch the video and get your CV together, and let us know if you do put together something awesome for the VOR choosers.

SA’s favorite free flying kiteboarder is back to her old antics with another gorgeous video of a gorgeous girl doing things 99.9% of can only dream about. For quite a few different reasons Hannah Whiteley is always in our dreams, and that VW truck she’s pimpin’ ain’t bad either.
This one is fresh from the editing desk of the talented Andre Magarao from a Brazil shoot.

It’s the coolest competition in sailing, and our own Petey Crawford – the King Pimp himself – has hit the road to restore an old Melges 24 to ‘like new’ glory for the Pimp My Ride competition in association with Sailing Anarchy, a pile of sponsors, and the 2016 Miami Melges 24 Worlds. The saga begins today and runs all summer long. Who needs reality TV when we’ve got everythere right here on the interwebs?

What do you get when you cross a 24 year old kiteboarder from the Great Plains, an insane creative genius videographer, and a loudmouth Sailing Anarchy editor? It’s called the Charleston Fort2Battery, and it’s one of the big successes in ultra-performance sail racing of the past few years. Watch the video for the full story, and go here to find out about the 2017 edition.

After what was the single most exciting day of match racing I’ve ever watched or commentated in my life, I’m still a little speechless; I’ve never been much of a fan of match racing, and I’d long ago gotten used to a format where the boat that wins the start sails off to victory the vast majority of the time. But on the Sweet Sixteen day of the World Match Racing Tour Copenhagen, the crowd and worldwide audience saw more passing and more action than in an entire week of hte old-format World Tour.
I’m still a little cynical – maybe we just got lucky, or maybe it’s the newness of the M32 that’s allowing such variety in the racing. But as I type this on Friday morning, Sally Barkow just nearly caused Taylor Canfield to flip and made the pass, and we’re just on the first race of the day. Watch the entire replay from yesterday above, and if you like it as much as I did, be sure to tune in today at 1400 CET/0800 ET as the quarterfinals conclude.

Our buds over at HH Catamarans pushed the all-new HH66 cruising cat hard in her recent sea trials, with the boat passing with flying colors and now tucked away for her shipment to a happy new owner in Valencia, Spain. The boat looks especially slick in the hands of a few well-known ex-Gunboat peeps you’ll see in the video, and we look forward to our first sail aboard this sexy carbon beastie.
Title shout nostalgia from 1987.

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.”
