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.

We are frequently frustrated by the low-quality videos put out by ostensibly ‘world-class’ organizations (see the link in the BBS BS story below for a great example), so when someone does it ‘just right’, we notice. And that’s what this is – a short but intense look at the people of the Melges 20 Class from their recent Lake Garda Worlds. Doesn’t it make you want some?

As if there was any doubt about how bad ass The Reverend Petey Crawford’s videos are, take a look at this highlight reel from his 2013-14 jobs. And just as an added bonus, we’ve got a little contest for you. For the first 3 people who can tell us how many current World Champions appear in the video, Penalty Box Productions will provide their sweet new flat brim PBP hats and stylin’ shirts (thanks to Line Honors) for ya. There will even be a special, as-yet unnamed prize to the first person who can get every name of every world champion right!
So get going and tell us - Whaddaya got?

Unlike lesser publications, Sailing Anarchy doesn’t ever fuck off on vacation, and certainly not with one of the world’s best racing competitions coming up in just a few days! You can count on our front page becoming ‘Sydney Hobart Central’ for the next week or so thanks to McConaghy Boats and the Cleans, beginning with a full form guide for you later today, but in the meantime, how about a few videos to keep your sailing fires going as the ice creeps in over your roof?
Fayerweather Yacht Club (Bridgeport, CT) had some unwelcome company last week when a gravel barge ran right through their floating docks, a cruising boat, and an Olson 29. The security-cam footage ain’t the best, but it shows plenty, and thanks to moondance for the view and the thread.
Google’s annual Zeitgeist video celebrates the most-searched for terms of the year (we assume they leave out ‘lesbian teen’), and while it’s mostly self-serving ‘do no evil’ crap, we were stoked to see a few milliseconds of ETNZ’s AC72 on screen for the already more than 10,000,000 people who’ve seen it. AC34 never had a single video that reached even a quarter of that, but it’s the gift that keeps on giving especially in NZ, where “Americas Cup” was not only the most watched program of 2013, but it was also the most searched for term in the nation. Speaking of ETNZ, they’re not sitting around; a squad of six ETNZ’ers (including Gashby) are headed over to the A-Cat Worlds next month in Takapuna. Thanks to MaughanNacra20 for the tip.

We wouldn’t have thought Garda would beat Geneva to the first-ever “all-foil sailing week”, but it looks like they have, at least if this Youtube-sourced promo video and their basic website is to be believed. Bring your foiling boat – any foiling boat – to the best sailing venue on the planet for two weeks of racing and a week of speed testing, brainstorming, idea exchange, and wine drinking? Sounds good to us. Check the site here.
We’d never have the gumption to get back at it after such a heartwrenching loss, but after a short soul search, the ETNZ boss is back at it, already looking for cash and signing up sailors. Last week he sat down with Channel 3 News for the most wide-ranging interview he’s done since he got home. Plenty of interesting news for Cup fans as the long, long waiting game settles in; the waiting game that explains why the AC can never be like the World Cup.
