Another week, another round of hot videos from the world of sailing and the sea.  Enjoy your week; it’s an exciting one for sailboat racing!

right in the middle

This week the Alpari World Match Racing Tour comes to its only North American stop, and it ain’t in Newport, Miami, or San Francisco.  Nope – it’s right in the middle at Chicago’s Navy Pier for the Chicago Cup, run in conjunction with the Tall Ships event.  That means a big pile of extra tourists and spectators, and a chance for a few new eyeballs on small boat match racing on very short courses – some of the most exciting racing there is.  Check out this little promo from our pals at Penalty Box Productions, and don’t forget to come visit Clean and the team at the Windy City Lounge this week for some up-close racing action.  If you can’t make it to the Second City, hit up the CMRC Facebook Page for sweet daily swag giveaways and stay tuned right here for live racing action beginning Wednesday. Title shout out to the best ski movie of all time.


lost and (possibly) found

We braved “Wind” and suffered through “Waterworld”.  We cheered Captain Jack Aubrey and wailed when Disney turned the compelling story of Morning Light into yet another dull film with all the personality scrubbed out of it.  With the America’s Cup unlikely to draw even a fraction of early forecasts and the US performance at the Olympics another wasted opportunity to share the sport with the masses, it looks like dark times again for the public’s appreciation of sailing.  Or does it?

Robert Redford’s new survival tale “All Is Lost” looks well on its way to a massive worldwide success, wowing the crowd at Cannes earlier in the year and already slated to win major pickle dishes at the Oscars.  The really interesting part?  The entire movie has just two sets; a 37-foot sailboat and a liferaft, and just one actor: Redford, the solo sailor.  While we expect the usual problems with these kinds of movies, a few of the film’s advisors are well-known sailors, giving us a slender hope that it’s realistic as it apparently is engaging.    Check out the trailer above; you won’t be disappointed and you can whet your appetite for the October release.  Thanks to our Tour De France a la Voile documentarian Sam Greenfield for the heads up.


c u in history class

You already know how excited we are for September’s Little America’s Cup (a/k/a the C Class Cat Championship) in Falmouth, but many of our younger readers don’t fully understand why.  Sure their wings are in many ways far more advanced than what the big AC allows, and like all good technogeeks, we love the latest and greatest.  And sure the Little AC brings together the most interesting blend anywhere of world-class racers, brilliant carbonologists, socially awkward genius engineers, and legends of the sport in harmonious competition.  But we’re also historians, and the C-Class has some of the most interesting and fascinating history of any sailing class in history – here’s a good 40-minute chat with a lot of the folks who made that history – back when a strange little beach club on Long Island Sound was the epicenter of high-tech catamaran racing.  Enjoy this look at the past as we get ready to take a look at the future.

17.5 knot shitbox

Maersk’s newest ship is her biggest ever, though the 400 meter, 165,000 metric ton Mckinney Moller is also one of the most fuel efficient; at 17.5 knots of cruising speed, the first of the the Triple E line (economy/efficiency/enviromental) will use half the fuel and put out half the emissions of existing ships as she moves metal boxes around the globe.  Check out her maiden voyage from the Korean shipyard to Busan, and be very ashamed of your own pathetic docking skills.  And note there is an entire Discovery documentary on the building of the ship, which starts in November.
