Bouwe Bekking is the most experienced VOR skipper in the history of the Volvo Ocean Race, and if you’re fit, strong, under 30, and will do whatever it takes, you might just be able to learn from the Jedi master himself as the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race gets going in just a few months.

The positive side of Brunel’s ultra-late entry into the race is the amount the save on crew and staff expenses.  The negative side is they now have just a month or two to get their crew selected, trained, and fully up to speed.  So if you fancy yourself an ocean racer, get your sailing CV together and submit it online TODAY.  Sailor chicks too!

Everyone who reads these pages knows the program trying to raise the bar on keeping teens interested in sailing, and we promote everything we can about those Mudratz.  Monday you’ll get to hear a full interview with one of those plucky teens, but for now, check out this Mudratz-produced promo for their signature race – the Volvo Secor Fisher Island Race.  And if you have kids in the right age range and within a few hours, do them a favor and get them entered.

The rampant anti-Israel discrimination that led to Malaysia losing the right to host ISAF/World Sailing events last winter was no outlier.  The Asian island nation just gave up their hosting rights for the 2017 FIFA (soccer) Congress rather than issuing visas to Israeli delegates, using the same bullshit argument that despots and oppressors have used forever:  “Security”.  It’s not every day an ostensibly modern country blacklists itself from all international sporting events, but after the latest anti-sporting move, that’s about where they’re at.  More from the Elder of Ziyon blog:

“We were advised by the government to withdraw from hosting the congress due to security issues,” Affandi Hamzah, deputy president of the Football Association of Malaysia, told AFP.

Affandi declined to elaborate on the “security issues” but said the move was tied to comments by Deputy Prime Minister Zahid Hamidi over the weekend.  Zahid had said Malaysia was unable to provide visas to Israeli officials because it did not have diplomatic ties and could rile up local sensitivities.  “Some of the conditions of hosting the event include placing the (Israeli) flag on the table during the congress,” he was quoted as saying by the New Straits Times online.

“After comparing the benefits and the risks, it is better for Malaysia to avoid playing host.”

Host of any international sporting event, right?
