When the Grael family started their project to bring kids from the Brazilian favelas [translation: crime-ridden slums/ghettos] into sailing, Rio’s biggest yacht club boards bristled, wondering if the poor would soon be invading the club’s hallowed halls.  Instead of destroying the social fabric of yachting, the project became a pioneer in the now-accepted pursuit of at-risk youth sailing and a feather in the cap of Brazilian sailing. And with Lars Grael and favela-born program graduate Samuel Goncalves winning one of keelboat sailing’s most prestigious titles last week, the pioneering continues. Oh, and by the way, skipper Lars Grael?  He’s only got one leg.  Hear that, Dee Smith?

Check out the piece by rock star Brazilian sports journalist Eduardo Ohato on the victory, with thanks to Matias Cappizano for this great shot and the absolutely breathtaking galleries over here.

And keep your eyes out right here on the SA front page, where we’ll be bringing you every minute of live action with Lars, Samuel, and a couple dozen of the best traditional keelboat sailors in the world at the Star Sailors League finale in Nassau, with our own Mr. Clean helping to inject some fun into the broadcast team…

Augie Diaz and big Arnis Baltins lead the Star Sailors League Swiss Open on Lake Neuchatal after one day of racing in the alpine breeze known as “La Bise”, and some of you found the long course, non-extreme sailing to be great fun to watch.

You can continue to follow the full live video coverage of the Stars – including commentary from Dennis Conner – over here.  Photos here.

While there’s still plenty of International Star racing around the globe, the end of the Olympic career for the venerable keelboat means plenty of extra hulls laying about, and up in Hamburg, Germany, they came up with a great re-use for a pretty hull with no mast; it’s now a launch for the local club.  Pics courtesy of Norddeutscher Regatta Verein Hamburg (NRV).  Here’s an even prettier pic from above.

Can’t get the proxy server for the Youth AC running and tired of looking at “YOU CAN’T WATCH THIS HERE” messages?  Like us, ESPN3′s app ain’t working for ya?  Or maybe you just hate children and catamarans?  Well we’ve got something for you too.

The Star Sailors League is sponsoring live 3D race tracking from the San Diego Star Worlds, which starts in a few minutes.  Click the pic to go to the live viewer.
