Class Action

smile and waveHow cool would it be to compete in a National One Design class on a Morelli and Melvin designed catamaran that can be bought easily for around $2500?!

Imagine sailing six races a day, flying a hull, and competing against several world champions, and still have the energy to attend the after race party.  It is here and we are doing it!

The International Wave Class Association’s  Wave North Americans are underway at the Pensacola Beach Yacht Club.  Say what you will about the Hobie Wave, but they are fun, faster than a Laser on all points of sail (in >10k breeze), and hell it is one design! With only one string to pull, they are far less tweaky than most other boats.  We all have our high performance beach cats and/or PHRF boats but we love our one design races too.

The competitors are great; Tom Whitehurst is a former World Champion in Sunfish and Olympic medalist in 470′s. Most recently he and Kirk Newkirk (also several National titles) won the Florida 300. Tom is now a professional coach and has helped me for years. We even have a SCOTW in the fleet!

We got in 3 races on day 1 with light and fluky north winds. The breeze changed directions four times and challenged the competitors and race committee.  My wife, the SCOTW, managed to pin Tom on the left side so I could capitalize on fresher breeze coming in from the right. Nothing like husband/wife team racing! Rick White (IWCA founder and former Wave Nat’l Champ) won the day with a 1,3,1. I am pumped to be two points out of first with a 2,2,3. Tom is in third with a 4,1,4. It feels great to be beating my coach although I know it is short lived and I should probably put the boat on the trailer today and end on a high note.

Day two brought steady breeze, six races, and many changes in the points.  The top three competitors shuffled with Tom Whitehurst in the lead with 14 points, myself tied at 14 points, and Rick White slipping to 20 points.  The race for overall female also closed to within 2 points.  The wind did not cooperate on day 3.

All of the essential elements were here, great competition, awesome after race parties at the Pensacola Beach Yacht Club, lots of smack talk, protest threats quilled by beer bribes, hot chicks and most importantly, the camaraderie that only exists while sailing with hot chicks. Kirk Newkirk of Key Sailing competed and supplied the committee boats.

My coach won on a tie breaker, but I am still married to a SCOTW! Full results here. Photo Gallery here.

Come and sail with us in Islamorada December 4-7 at the Wave Nationals. – Anarchist Mike.

It’s over, final, fin; the Chicago boating season for 99% of us is complete. Upon coming to this harsh reality, I reached out to friends and friends of friends via social media interwebs and garnered images to wrap up the season. The response from the community was fantastic.

I collected so much more than images. What I found is all of us share the same desires and habits. Our love of the water brings us together whether we sail, fish, swim, paddle board, or fly a kite on the beaches. Of course, it seems rum and beers bring us together pretty well too. After sifting through the images, it’s obvious that whether we know each other through personal experience or not, we know each other through the love of boating and the water.

I want to send out a huge thank you to everyone that participated and gave me permission to use their photos. You’re the best and I’m proud to be a part of the Chicago boating community.

Achtung! Neither Crowley’s Yacht Yard nor I own these photos and were given permission to use them for this purpose only. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Click here for the pics.

Brothers Race Nov 2014

The forecast looked pretty good, reach/downwind out of the harbour, upwind in 20 knots to round the Brothers Islands, then a downwind blast in 25-30 to get home… Wellington’s northerly quarter winds often get accelerated and this day was no exception. The first reach and run out of the harbour were sublime, Blink led the rest of the 40-footers out of the harbour by 5 minutes, and at the south coast extended to a 15-minute lead. If the forecast held, a race record seemed possible and calculations led some friends of ours to arrange a helicopter for some photos. Unfortunately the beat up from the south coast to the other side of Cook Strait came with a 35-knot headwind, and we couldn’t keep our VMG high enough in those conditions to stay on record pace.

There was still hope, downwind with the A6 up in mid-30s windspeeds might make up some of that lost time… but it wasn’t to be. a series of lulls on the downwind kept us off full pace and then we were greeted by 35-50 knots just ahead of our beam all the way back across the south coast and then a tough beat with multiple short tacks into the harbour against 40+ knots and outgoing tide. Not so fast.

But the big wind wasn’t the scary part, the holy crap moment came when we gybed while doing 18 knots of boat speed to see a large whale about 20 metres dead ahead on our pre-gybe line. Had we not gybed we’d have hit that at speed and it wouldn’t have been nice for us or the whale. – Tony Wells, owner of the Shaw 40 Blink. Photo thanks to Chris Coad.

Of course the recent midterm elections only confirmed that this country is maybe dumber than ever, and that’s really saying something. But without a doubt, the epicenter of Dumbfuckistan this time has to be Lake County. The 633 ignorant retards who voted to elected Russell Purdock to the Lakeport City Council really should have their right to vote eliminated.

This allegedly murderous, corrupt ex-cop scumbag killed someone through sheer negligence and disregard, yet the fucks of Lake County elected him to a government position? God help us all…

Mark Chisnell reports on the week four action in Leg One of the Volvo Ocean Race, as the teams dodged around the St Helena High and dived south for their first taste of the Southern Ocean. It turned out to be a fickle beast this time around, and they got just a brief high speed ride before they found themselves back dodging the high pressure. Twice. And the high is still lurking in the final approach to Cape Town.

We are into the final approach and there isn’t much race left for a prize-winning move by any of the navigators. Read on.

Not your average kit boat, to be sure, but no doubt a really great opportunity for the right guy….

C:Documents and SettingsUlfLokale indstillingerTempBGPlot_1LYMAN MORSE Boatbuilding of Thomaston Maine is offering at auction the rare opportunity to purchase a partially complete 70′ offshore cruiser.  Approximately 60% complete, the yacht can be purchased as-is and finished to your specifications.

Partially finished, this yacht was designed by Ulf Rogeberg, the architect responsible for so many of the proven sea going Deerfoot designs. With many of the mechanicals in place, build time is significantly less than starting from scratch.

Pick your finishes and let us finish the boat to the typical high end standards of Lyman-Morse, or get involved and create a yacht to suit your every desire and enjoy the satisfaction of being part of the remaining specification process. More here.

That we are even having this discussion is retarded, but we wonder if this announcement from the America’s Cup is an indication that Bermuda is going to be the actual venue for the AC?  The retarded part is not Bermuda, but rather that San Diego remains the supposed front runner for the choice. Light air Dago, in a stupid small venue, in a protected, boring bay for christ’s sake!

The America’s Cup World Series – a racing circuit featuring the best sailors in the world, competing on foiling, wingsailed catamarans – will be coming to Bermuda in October of 2015.

Solo Figarists Nick Cherry and Henry Bomby continue with Sailing Anarchy’s 2014 Route Du Rhum coverage, sponsored by Bruce Schwab Energy Systems. Please get in touch with the Vendee veteran to find out how his energy storage, solar power, and charging systems can benefit your cruising or racing boat today, and enjoy Nick and Henry’s latest analysis.  Hit the thread for all the latest news, photos, videos, and analysis.

Big conditions meant a premature end to the huge ‘thank f*** they’re gone’ party for Route Du Rhum shore crew and race staff in St. Malo on Sunday night, just as it has for some 13 official abandonments on the race track.  A further 20-odd boats are in less-dire-but-still-bad shape, headed to port or to find some shelter in order to fix damaged sails, rudders, and bodies.  Obviously the weather has been heinous, with two solid fronts kicking the fleets in the face with gusts reported up to 60 knots and some nasty seas, especially rounding the corner at Brest. The most high-profile casualty has been Thomas Coville, who managed to prang a cargo ship in the night just in front of the TSS off Ushant. With closing speeds between the ship and trimaran of 40 knots, dark skies, and awful visibility, it’s a wonder that more of these guys haven’t hit anything. It’s yet another blow for the Sodeb’o campaign, which adds this failed attempt to something of a pile of them over the past few years.  Coville may be one of the world’s best, but we wonder if he didn’t piss off an old gypsy woman sometime over the past decade…

Perhaps most worrying amongst the early dropouts are two keel losses/failures on the new Sabrosa Mk II Class 40 sisterships of Francois Anglouvant (picked up by a chopper from his capsized hull) and Marc Lepesqueux, who managed to fill ballast, drop sails and sail downwind to Guernsey. I’m no mathematician but the chances of both these guys hitting a submerged object seems pretty low, and we guess their design and build team (which included Anglouvant) is trying to figure out what happened right now, while thanking their lucky stars that no one was killed.

The decision by race director Gilles Chiorri to send the fleet off into this storm is refreshing in the light of so many big races being delayed in recent years. Many skippers – particularly in the handicap Rhum class –  chose to do something we rarely see these days; they waited out the worst of the storm before going yachting.

Ultimate Update

All the fleets have spread out by now, but none more so than the Ultimes, where Loic Peyron is having an absolute blinder aboard BPVII, steadily pulling out a sixty mile lead over Yann Guichard on the Spindrift (who isn’t showing any signs of using his extra nine meters of length to catch up). Watching these guys go off the start was jaw dropping, with Coville looking picture perfect early on and Sydney Gavignet giving the spec fleet some ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ flying his center hull as he weaved through the spectator boats.   We caught up with Sidney here; click the link for a video interview where we chatted about ‘Oh, Sheet’ release systems and weather routing.

Bollard cleatGiven that sailing a big multi alone is a full-time job, these guys are aiming not to go downstairs at all during the race. Yann Ellies on Paprec has a staff of three top guys holed up in a house in Brittany running a watch system looking at forecasts and on-board data basically playing a full-on version of the virtual race game. He’s planning to have Skype messenger on 24/7 and regular sat phone calls, leaving him free to ease sheets off one of these bollard/cleat arrangements at any time. Whatever you think of shore-based routers they are here to stay, and this race pits the best weather guys against each other across the Ultime fleet.

Macif Attack

Francois Gabart is, once again, showing why no one has been able to touch him for the past couple of years; 30 miles over Jeremie Beyou in a sistership and 50 over Marc Guillemot aboard Safran. Vincent Riou and Tanguy De Lamotte are all but out of this race with mainsail track issues and rudder damage respectively. These guys are in for a fast crossing with few passing lanes; look for Gabart to continue to push his lead right through the finish line.

Rogue Racing

True to form over the last couple of years, Seb Rogues in GDF Suez is leading the way as the 40s reach down towards Cap Finisterre. There’s been a definite split in this class, with the first fifteen or so boats who made it out of the channel in good shape having put some serious miles on the B fleet of stragglers as they get into better and better breeze.

Fifty First Dates

The prize for most dropouts goes to the Multi 50 fleet, where currently only six out of eleven starters are left in the running, with the three favourites occupying the top spots. On the dock some of these boats looked like they might be better off in a museum than a storm and it seems that maybe Neptune agreed!?

Fast Forward

Looking ahead at the weather, things are starting to calm down for the big trimarans and IMOCA fleet, and with the Azores high still located quite far north, these skippers should be able to sail a fairly direct route for the next few days before the wind drops a little and goes further aft.  Then it’ll be lots of gybing to line up their approach to Guadeloupe.  The slower boats will have to negotiate another (hopefully less violent) front toward the end of the week, which could create some lanes for some of the early losers.  We’ll keep you posted.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 10.59.29 AMFrench philosopher Joseph Marie told us two hundred years ago that, in a democracy, ‘people get the government they deserve.’  But we can’t believe that anyone could deserve the leadership of the allegedly murderous, corrupt ex-cop Russell Perdock – amazingly, running for local government.

You may remember Perdock as the cop behind the most bizarre and controversial case to ever go to trial in Lake County; a case that inspired thousands of SA’ers to stand up for the rights of Bismarck Dinius, the sailor nearly sent to prison for the death of sailboat crew Lynn Thornton.  After a major effort from the media and local sailors, the truth came out and Dinius was acquitted, but not before the world learned that it was Perdock’s excessive speed, incompetence, and possibly inebriation that caused the death of an innocent woman.

There’s more info on the Dinius vs. Perdock saga here, and you can go here to see this piece of shit’s campaign website, but here’s what is important:  If you are in Clear Lake or anywhere near Lake County, please make sure you vote for anyone besides this guy.  And while you’re at it, send this story around to your neighbors and friends.  Here’s the permalink.

Screen Shot 2014-11-04 at 9.28.58 AMYou want odd?  How about a digital campaign on Kickstarter aiming to raise funds for the creation and publication of a physical book (bound paper pages made from wood pulp and ink, arranged into pictures and words) about a fairly ancient racing boat celebrating its 50th anniversary?

There’s definitely something a little anarchic – or at least anachronistic – about the Soling Class’s new ’50th Anniversary Book’ campaign we saw this morning – just the kind of thing we like to share with you guys and gals, and knowing the characters involved, we’re certain that it will be a pretty fun book.  Note that if the full amount isn’t reached, nobody’s credit card gets charged by Kickstarter…

To further confuse you, watch this video about the project from Soling Class President Johan Offerman and check out their Facebook page.  This beautiful painting on the left comes from Savannah’s Ray Ellis Gallery.

We’re not shy about our love for carnage, and the new VOR media system’s tool allowing ‘last minute’ capture of painful moments is pure gold.  Unfortunately for our friends on DongFeng, they get to use it first.  And unfortunately for the supplier of the boats – a/k/a the Volvo Ocean Race – one of the strongest parts of the boat just broke.

So what broke, exactly?  While port is necessary for a real post-mortem (analysis being somewhat difficult at 25 knots of boatspeed), DFRT boss Mark Turner told us five minutes ago that it appeared to be metal fatigue at the aft-most padeye; the one that both the masthead zero and the A3 sheet to.  It’s a piece of steel that should be strong enough for a decade to lift the boat from, and with the above video showing no abuse at all to the part, the other teams, VOR (and more importantly, the roving Boatyard) could be more than a little nervous right now.

The snapped padeye immediately led to the destruction of the starboard wheel, lifelines, stanchions, pushpit, and sheeting strut, and plenty more.  Only luck prevented any injuries and a lot of further damage.  And you know what?  Caudrelier’s merry Chinese/French band is back to sending it, and they’re just a few miles out of the lead!  Know what else?  They could have stayed completely quiet and hoped that their competition had the same problem – a definite possibility given the one-design nature of the boat, and no one would be the wiser.  Massive props to Caudrelier, Turner and the team for showing their character and quality.

Is this our new favorite team?  Watch the video.  And if our title doesn’t make you laugh, that’s not our fault.  Watch this for a little understanding.

UPDATE:  Great new video here from the SCA girls, putting a brave face on a tough first leg performance.  And a great chat between Ken Read and the race leading Ian Walker as his Abu Dhabi 65 goes down the mine.  Laugh at our Senior Editor along with Walker @12:08.

RdR Breaking

At 23:30 on November 2nd Cross informed the race management of the Route du Rhum – Destination Guadeloupe that a collision had occurred between Sodebo Ultim and a cargo ship. Skipper Thomas Coville was unharmed. The trimaran was sailing under 3 reefs and ORC, progressing at a speed of 15/18 knots in  30 knots of wind from the southwest. In shock, the trimaran has lost the front of the starboard float to link arms. The middle housing also appears to have been damaged at the front.

Sodebo Ultim now moves towards the port of Roscoff, crosswind, under reduced sail, leaning on the port float. He is currently lead less than 10 knots. By approaching the Brittany coast, the wind will ease and the sea to settle down. His crew was on standby in Brest will travel at night in Roscoff where the trimaran is due in the morning.

One of our dearest friends, Doug Holthaus sent one one of the funniest things we’ve read in a long time. Not sailing, but hilarious. Enjoy

gourdI don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to get my hands on some fucking gourds and arrange them in a horn-shaped basket on my dining room table. That shit is going to look so seasonal. I’m about to head up to the attic right now to find that wicker fucker, dust it off, and jam it with an insanely ornate assortment of shellacked vegetables. When my guests come over it’s gonna be like, BLAMMO! Check out my shellacked decorative vegetables, assholes. Guess what season it is—fucking fall. There’s a nip in the air and my house is full of mutant fucking squash.

I may even throw some multi-colored leaves into the mix, all haphazard like a crisp October breeze just blew through and fucked that shit up. Then I’m going to get to work on making a beautiful fucking gourd necklace for myself. People are going to be like, “Aren’t those gourds straining your neck?” And I’m just going to thread another gourd onto my necklace without breaking their gaze and quietly reply, “It’s fall, fuckfaces. You’re either ready to reap this freaky-assed harvest or you’re not.”

Carving orange pumpkins sounds like a pretty fitting way to ring in the season. You know what else does? Performing an all-gourd reenactment of an episode of Diff’rent Strokes—specifically the one when Arnold and Dudley experience a disturbing brush with sexual molestation. Well, this shit just got real, didn’t it? Felonies and gourds have one very important commonality: they’re both extremely fucking real. Sorry if that’s upsetting, but I’m not doing you any favors by shielding you from this anymore.

The next thing I’m going to do is carve one of the longer gourds into a perfect replica of the Mayflower as a shout-out to our Pilgrim forefathers. Then I’m going to do lines of blow off its hull with a hooker. Why? Because it’s not summer, it’s not winter, and it’s not spring. Grab a calendar and pull your fucking heads out of your asses; it’s fall, fuckers.

Have you ever been in an Italian deli with salamis hanging from their ceiling? Well then you’re going to fucking love my house. Just look where you’re walking or you’ll get KO’d by the gauntlet of misshapen, zucchini-descendant bastards swinging from above. And when you do, you’re going to hear a very loud, very stereotypical Italian laugh coming from me. Consider yourself warned.

For now, all I plan to do is to throw on a flannel shirt, some tattered overalls, and a floppy fucking hat and stand in the middle of a cornfield for a few days. The first crow that tries to land on me is going to get his avian ass bitch-slapped all the way back to summer.

Welcome to autumn, fuckheads!
