Screen Shot 2016-01-18 at 10.07.41 AMHamburg (along with Krakow, Munich, St. Mortitz, Stockholm and Oslo and pretty much every other responsible city on earth) made news earlier this year when they walked away from its 2022 Olympic bid for obvious reasons: No one wants to share the worldwide humiliation of Rio, nor can many cities stomach the 11-figure economic hits that China or Russia swallowed as both headed for economic recessions.  And as far as we know, no one needs to distract the world while they invade their neighbor with tanks and artillery.  With the choices narrowed down to two countries with the now-expected awful human rights records, the bid was awarded to the worst of them; a country that already screwed with the IOC, athletes, and the media the last time around.

In an ironic twist, the much-beloved keelboat recently removed from the Olympics continues its resurgence in Hamburg with an incredible 70 boats entered in just 24 hours to the Star Sailors League event in Hamburg this May; that’s the limit, and if you want to enter, you need to get on the waiting list!

While a big pile of cash prizes sure helps despite the fact that only the invited VIPs have a real shot at the hundred-grand purse, it’s good to see an event succeed almost entirely due to the perseverance of its charismatic owner.  There’s a lesson to be learnt as well: If you don’t stick to your guns for three or four years, you will never succeed in this slow-moving, conservative sport.

For more about the huge problems plaguing the 5-ring clown show that’s the modern olympics, read this piece.

Update: Californian George Szabo sure has a nose for money – he grabbed the $40,000 first place booty. Mr. Clean will have his take on things tomorrow..

With World Champions and Olympians already knocked out of the final round, the stage is set for some high-stakes drama in front of the Nassau Yacht Club for the final day of the Star Sailors League Finale.  11 advance to the one-race quarters, 7 to the semis, and just 4 boats in the final shootout for the biggest share of the $200,000 purse – a cool forty grand.  Imagine the cost of a single piece of weed on your rudder today!

Watch it all right here.

Enough SA’ers watched the Star Sailors League Lausanne event that we’re back for more, this time from the SSL Finale in Nassau, Bahamas.  With $200,000 in cash prizes up for grabs for the world’s best plus-size racers, there’s plenty to cheer for as you sit in your cold, wintery homes.

The commentary team gets a shot in the arm with our own Mr. Clean joining the fun, and he’s reunited with former Sailor Chick of the Week and OTW Anarchy/VOR/AC presenter Genny Tulloch to help spice up the action for the venerable Star fleet.

We’ll have the live show for you right here on the front page in a few hours – until then, you can keep up with video features and more rolling through on the Event Stream.
