Looking for some of the great sailing videos this week to watch on a near-summer Sunday?  We’ve got it for you right here.

High Line

As much as we like the one-design idea of the next Volvo Ocean Race, there’s no doubt that the usual buildup of excitement for the VOR is largely gone without the open design challenge of a developmental class.  The VOR hasn’t handled this change with a lot of grace, but Rick Deppe and his video team are finally getting it rolling, and this look at what it’s like to work in the sky is both beautiful and interesting.

Time Line

Petey Crawford shares a time lapse look at a series of ‘days in the life’ of a sailing videographer, with a nice track and some of the prettiest scenery you can imagine.

Scout Report

We never let a chance to speak to Loïck Peyron slip by, and he stopped by the Austrian Alps with Artemis teammate Iain Percy to have a peek at the foiling GC32 action on Lake Traunsee.   Mr. Clean sat down with the boys to see what they thought about the foiler and where it fits into the AC world, and watch the final day of action at the GC32 Austria Cup right here on the front page starting at 1000 CET/0900 UTC today.  For dozens more interviews, go here.

Scouts Rising

If sailing is to ever to grow again, it ain’t Yacht Clubs that will make it happen; it will be the sailing centers, community organizations, and folks like the Sea Scouts who spread the word to the unwashed masses.  Huge, well-funded spots like the new 60,000 square foot Sea Scout base in Galveston, TX will lead the way; check them out above and support Sea Scouts in your neck of the woods.

The Haunted

Sure it’s a sport, but it’s also all about soul and history and isolation and all the things that don’t easily fall into the realm of ‘competition.’  Here’s a look at some of that soul, captured by some of the sport’s ocean racing pioneers.

Curating the internet’s best sailing videos for you, here’s another SA video edition.

Transformer

While Thomas Coville’s crewed endeavors over the past couple of years (Groupama 70, Banque Populaire V) have been damned impressive, he spent the past few years losing to Francis Joyon in the world’s big solo records with a near sistership to Joyon’s IDEC.  The big Irens trimarans are narrow and light and designed for solo sailing, and clearly, Coville’s Sodebo just wasn’t getting it done.  So he picked up the bigger, wider, and much older Geronimo for a song, brought it to Multiplast for a mega-refit, and just relaunched in time for some serious pre-Route Du Rhum prep and record-breaking.  Looking goddamned good.

In other big French multihull Route Du Rhum news, Team Edmund de Rothschild relaunched their MOD 70 the other day for Seb Josse, but it’s no longer a MOD 70; instead, it’s a turbo MOD.  A lighter motor/generator,  lighter interior, larger canopy (Seb will live outside the cabin during the RdR), and most importantly, a set of Verdier/Koch-designed T-foil rudders.  Will Seb stand a chance against the super-trimarans?  If anyone can, it’ll be Josse.  More info here.

 

Britain’s Next Top Model

 Screen Shot 2014-05-15 at 10.37.53 AM

Artemis Offshore Academy’s Sam Goodchild continues his climb into shorthanded stardom, albeit it slowly. The young Brit continues his Figaro ways this year as he continues to hunt for Vendee Globe money, and here’s an intense clip showing what it’s like to sail in gusts to 60 knots. You think you know 60? Take a look and compare Sam and Sandy’s delivery to your biggest day.  Click the video to get to it.

Blu, You’re My Boy!

 

 

With Flavio Favini on the sideline after his horrendous accident earlier in the year, Franco Rossini’s Blu Moon continued her winning ways with Matteo Ivaldi helping the Moonies to European Championship glory last week.  Here’s a video from midway through the week that showcases just how gorgeous Hungary’s Lake Baloton can be, with thanks to Janna Buriani for the shooting and editing.  Title shout is all about Old School, yo.

Can’t Teach Old Dogs New Tricks 


It’s amazing how quickly the once-amazing AC45s have descended into obsolescence; too flexy to make a good foiling platform and slower than pretty much all the foilers, Oracle Team USAustralia and Team Australia continue to practice in Sydney despite the irrelevance of their platform to the new AC62 class.  That being said, this video shows off the lighter, more easygoing side to OTUSAUS resulting from Tom Slingsby taking a much bigger role aboard as Sailing Team Director.  It also shows off a more American side to the team; Rome Kirby, Andrew Campbell, and now Matty Cassidy joined with half-citizens Slingers and Spithill bring the total yank factor up to 4, and with a very American design team, OTUSAUS is almost, dare we say it, an American team!  Good fun from the Oracle media boys.

 

Just When You Thought It Was Safe 

Your $200k RIB seems like it can take anything you throw at it, but can it? These guys found out the answer.

 

One Man’s Trash Is Another Man’s Island

 

You’ve all heard about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch?  Well, how about Richard Sowa’s recycled bottle island?  We like.
