If you’re getting tired of Volvo Ocean Race videos, you’ll probably want to look away. But if you like straight talk from the leaders of the race about some very serious and some not-so-serious topics, spend another hour with Clean, Nic, Charles Caudrelier, Ian Walker, and Mark Turner and watch this show.

Opinion amongst Volvo vets is unanimous that Newport is light years beyond any of the recent US Volvo Ocean Race stopovers in every way, and we’re extremely glad we’re here to be part of it this week thanks to our friends at Sperry and the Volvo Ocean Race Boatyard.
With so much staff coverage available from the teams and VOR media, we wanted to give you something different this week, and today at 1130 PST/1430 EST/1830 UTC, we’re bringing you Sailing Anarchy’s first-ever live, two-camera talk show from the Volvo Ocean Race Boatyard – in front of a live audience! We haven’t skimped on guests, either, and since we’ve been wanting to sit down with the leaders of Team SCA for some time now, we asked, and they thankfully agreed! Team CEO Richard Brisius, Performance Director Brad Jackson, and the afterguard of Dee, Sam, and Sally will sit down with co-host Nic Douglass and me for an hour-long chat about everything VOR. We want to know all about their race, and all about them. What’s the future look like for Team SCA, and what does their race mean for their careers, for their fans, for their families, for their sponsors…
You’ve already given us some great questions; please head over to the thread and post more, or hit us up on Twitter and use the hashtag @asksailinganarchy if you want yours answered today; the best three questions win Team SCA t-shirts, but you only have a couple hours to get ‘em in. Wanna learn more about the girls? Check out the brand new well-produced reality series No Ordinary Women. We’ve enjoyed the first two episodes, and we think you will too. And don’t fret if you miss our show today; it will be archived for your pleasure here.
And if you have questions for VOR CEO Knut Frostad, Boatyard Director Nick Bice, the two guys tussling for the race lead; Ian Walker and Charles Caudrelier, or Vestas skipper Chris Nicholson, get those questions in too; we’re recording their show tonight for publication tomorrow morning at around 1000 EST.
Nic’s been doing a great job getting interviews with all the boys and girls; head over to her channel here for a stack of interviews that go far beyond the usual tripe. And be sure to keep an eye on SA Twitter and Facebook for many more face-to-faces coming up this weekend, especially for the last-minute pre-race Dock Walk video posted to our page, 20 minutes after dock out for the In-Port Race and Leg Start.

New York Times correspondent Chris Museler was so inspired by our coverage of foiling boats over the past year that he’s doing something really interesting with it, and he wants you to all be part of it – live, online, or via Twitter; your choice.
Tomorrow, Thursday April 9th, Chris will run a live, webstreamed talk called ‘Foiling In The USA”, where he will talk to some of the most interesting folks in foiling and answer your Tweeted questions about the foiling landscape. It all starts at 1900 (7 PM) EST, 1600 PST, 2300 GMT. If you want to ask your question in person, head over to the Doyle Long Island loft for free pizza – everyone’s invited.
This is all about having an open discussion on how the rapid development of hydrofoil technology is going to change the way we enjoy sailing!! Will we all be cruising on hydrofoils in the future? Will kids be flying out of the water on mass-produced plastic foilers at their learn-to-sail camps? Here’s the line-up to answer those questions:
-New York Times correspondent CHRIS MUSELER makes sense of the latest developments
-GunBoat founder PETER JOHNSTONE on live SkypeVideo chat about the foiling G4 cruiser/racer catamaran in trials THIS WEEK!
-The Foiling Week founder Luca Rizzotti will chime in from Lake Garda to explain the vibe when the world’s top foil designers get together to create the future of the sport
-AND contributions from other influential visionaries including radical kite foiler Bryan Lake, Waterlust Project filmmaker Patrick Rynne, US Sailing Executive Director Jack Gierhart and more!!!
Big thanks to Mark Washiem from Doyle Sailmakers Long Island for the space (and Pizza!) to share cool ideas with Strong Island sailors. And a huge thanks to US Sailing for stepping up to support foiling in the sport by Sponsoring the LiveStream broadcast.
Finally, Tweet your questions to @OakcliffSail, and thank them for sponsoring and running the Twitter feed.

Language boffins have complained for years that the 3-day Sperry Charleston Race Week is woefully misnamed. But the wild success of the hemisphere’s biggest regatta has allowed the event to leapfrog right over the ‘week’ part of its name, because this year, April is Charleston Race Month. And thanks to our friends at Sperry and their Odysseys Await promotion, Sailing Anarchy is bringing you its biggest coverage of Charleston action ever – just when conditions in the South’s sailing capital are a sailor’s paradise. For more, we go to For2Battery Race founder Tim Fitzgerald:
All the Charleston action begins on April 11th, when the second annual Fort2Battery sprint turns Charleston Harbor into “Caddy Day” at Bushwood. This hot event reached its entry cap weeks ago, and some 75 high-speed kites, boards, catamarans and moths will be racing down the harbor at speeds touching 40mph, competing for some $20,000 in prizes including a brand new bike, and one of the largest single cash prizes in all of American sailing!
One notable absence is the inaugural Champion, “King of the Harbor” Bora Gulari, who’s giving someone else a chance to win this year. Will the sailors still be able to hold off the kites in 2015? You can tune in right here on the front page for a live hour-long morning show from the beach, and the entire 9-minute race, streamed by the original troublemakers who called last year to tell us “DUDE! this race needs to happen, how can we help?!” at Sailing Anarchy. And we’ve got a pro photographer going up in a Holy City Helicopter to shoot the event – it will be awesome! Head over to our Facebook Page to find out how you can enter to win a brand new Liquid Force Kite or Kiteboard, and please join us at the huge post-race party and awards at the awesome Palmetto Brewery at 7 pm.
The nearly 300 teams entered in Sperry Charleston Race Week in about a hundred classes on 5 circles will begin arriving in Charleston immediately after the sprint, and we’ve got a full program of live, recorded, photo, and social content for everyone stuck at home. For the 2500-odd sailors, shore crew, and support staff in the Holy City, we’ve got all sorts of goodies, including giveaways, contests, and a VIP after party with tons more giveaways, and a Karaoke contest where we’ll award a year-long Sperry footwear sponsorship to one lucky crew!
While the multi-media fun ends on 4/20, the month ain’t over for sailors until the next weekend, when 15-20 high-speed E-Scows (including one helmed by the aforementioned Gulari) will take advantage of the perfect SE seabreeze to race in the CYC E Regatta. We’ve also heard rumors that several high-performance one-design and box rule classes are looking to join the late April fun in 2016; is there another 200+ boat Charleston regatta on the horizon? We think there should be.

For our money Auckland is probably the second-best city in the world for yacht racing. It’s like San Francisco with a fraction of the shitty weather and pretentious douchebags, and we’ve got an hour of cityfront racing coming to you live from The City of Sails…now.
For the pre-race Press Conference, head over here.

Every February means the 18 Footer Worlds, and for the second year in a row, it’s all being streamed live on Youtube. Head over to Nic Douglass’ Youtube page for some great interviews with the teams earlier in the day and her Facebook Page for content throughout the week, and click the player above to see if Seve Jarvin and the Gotta Love It 7 boys can break the all-time record and take their 8th JJ Giltinan title.
You’ll have an hour or two of great live HD racing action every night for the next week, all anchored by fun commentary from our ultra-knowledgeable friends Killo and Heeley. Full entry list here.

Charlie and the Anarchists aboard Dongfeng Race Team are minutes from the finish in Sanya and a momentous occasion for the most Chinese team we’ve ever seen in any major event; watch the homecoming live here with (we think) the wonderful past SCOTW Genny Tulloch MC’ing them in. To chat about it, hit the latest page of the thread here. And for a cool new feature the VOR doesn’t have (but should) from yet another Anarchist taking the matter into his own hands, check out “dglad’s” VOR Social Content Aggregator here.

Are you ready for it? We are. Sperry Top-Sider and Sailing Anarchy bring you what you’ve been waiting for: The Gold Fleet! 3 women and 76 guys made it through, and now, the regatta really begins. We’ll be telling you the full story live, over three races as the Finals begins. Bouncy video and awesome commentary at the 2015 Moth Worlds.
We might even get our super special guest star to talk on the microphone; he’s holding cables at the moment…stay tuned.

Screw football: Let’s watch some boat racing! Team SCA, with 3-time Olympian Carolijn Brouwer taking over the stick from Sam Davies (who moves to trim and big-picture stuff) gets their first In-Port Race win today in Abu Dhabi! With the In-Port Races getting more and more important as the fleet’s parity becomes evident, this was some of the most aggressive racing we’ve seen yet from the 2014-15 Volvo Ocean Race. Team Brunel finished second, and the local favs in third, with MAPFRE’s woes continuing and Alvimedica caught along with the Spanish team on the wrong side of a big first-beat righty.
Check out Clean’s raw interviews with Sally Barkow, Carolijn Brouwer, Bouwe Bekking, Anderson Reggio, Nick Bice, and Patrick Shaughnessy as well as dozens of pics from Anarchist JeffB starting about here in the Abu Dhabi stopover thread.
And be sure to tune in at the same time on Saturday for all the action from the Leg 3 Start – with Chris Nicholson alongside Knut and Clean for the OTW commentary. We’ll have it right here on the front page, of course.
