It’s another one of those days where there are just too many videos for our usual one-per-day limit. So enjoy this little selection of the best sailing films of the day.
We caught up with noted multihull designer (and the designer of the new Gunboat 50 and 60) Nigel Irens in Antigua, just as one of his newest boats was pulling in after a 12-day crossing from the Canary Islands – and this ain’t no ordinary cruising boat. With amas made from the molds of the ORMA 60 Fujicolor and a gorgeous custom carbon-jeweled cruising center hull for Northern California owner Peter, this thing is pure porn, and one of the coolest cruising boats ever built. Check out the video tour, along with comments from the owner and designer.
While we certainly like the look of Extreme 40 designer Herb Derckson’s new Extreme 20, this video is special not for the boat, but for the face-smashing wipeout of crew Mark Bulkeley. You can just taste the pain…
