Big Ben Ainslie popped over to Gothenburg for a short break from the business of foiling to receive the Mange Olsson Award (and give two more out to a pair of standout junior sailors), and we grabbed him to catch up on his new sponsorship deal, on Bermuda’s status as ‘home turf’ for Land Rover Team BAR, on multihulls and the next generation of sailing, and much, much more.  Always a great chat with Sir Ben, and keep your eyes on this page for more interviews from the last day of the #volvooceanrace.

2015 Bullitt GC32 Racing Tour

A broken hand for OMAN skipper Leigh MacMillan saved the 5-boat Cowes GC32 event from the same kind of runaway win the British Tornado vet has been known for in the Extreme Series over the past few years.  Team BAR’s Paul Campbell James subbed in for LeighMac to save the second just ahead of Ernesto Bertarelli on Alinghi, but longtime Swiss Starboater (and GC32 Class Prez) Flavio Marazzi jumped ahead for his first big win in the class with Armin Strom.  There’s some low-budget video and news on the web, but the Sander Van Der Borch photos are top quality as always, as you can see from the shot above.  More of Sander’s work is coming up from our exclusive coverage of the J/70 Worlds next week in La Rochelle, France.

It may not be quite as well-produced at the wildly successful Alex Thomson mast walk (that helped him land Mercedes-Benz as a main sponsor), but it’s way cooler; watch danish kitesurfing sensation Nick Jacobsen jump from the headboard of Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing’s mainsail…and land it.

Just one more day of VOR action; watch this page for Clean’s Dock Walk, the In-Port Race, and some awesome interviews from your 2015 Sperry Sailing Anarchy World Tour Team.  Title (for all you damn kids) comes from here.

the moment of truth

Ya gotta love this shot from today’s racing at the ICRA Nationals Sovereigns Cup at Kinsale by David Branigan. Especially the dude in the back scrambling to weather – you haven’t lived until you experience this kind of truth!

what ya gotA Laser tuned up with a proper sailing rig and foils… Did you know that a 49er dagger fits perfectly?

Rudder foil reworked with little effort fits as well (Actually molded one with the head change).

FYI There is a deck -mount BP and Kite for this thing + single trap. Batteries not included.

I dig off-season on Banderas Bay…. Thanks for keeping it real. Katrina Liana from Marina Riviera Nayarit took the photo.

Big Pimpin’

tacing masterTackingMaster is a tactical navigation device that works together with any compass. It aims to make it easier to understand and visualize changes and trends of the wind during regatta sailing. Modern digital compasses with tactical functions already do a fantastic job showing accurate, big and steady headings with some header and lifter information in addition to this.

But although this is a great help for immediate local wind shift, they are not capturing the bigger picture of wind shifts over time and bringing this “historical” information to the “visual” memory of the tactical sailor.

Getting the headers and lifters shown on starboard and port respectively is unarguably invaluable – but in this constant three-digit data stream it can be often challenging to crack the code of the overall wind behavior: are we dealing with oscillating wind shifts only or are we having a general wind shift/bend in addition to this? Also, how are other important directions/bearings affected in the current wind shift I am heading in to?

In a very important addition to this, TackingMaster also reveals concurrent relevant information about the downwind part of the race – like jibe bearing, heading to downwind marker and so on, so you can act and plan in advance before arriving at the windward mark.

The visual overview on TackingMaster also helps the tactical sailor to be familiar with certain bearings to in order to visualize ahead for a couple of “what-if” scenarios. Basically, TackingMaster aims to add overview and visual and cognitive memory support to the modern world of data sailing. We think it is smart – more about it here.
