team frackers

Any team built on the dirty money of an anti-environmental business like this, deserves not even an iota of support, and certainly not from us. And don't be fooled by Ainslie's bullshit, he sold out to the devil, and for what? To line his pockets while not winning another AC? If you are looking for a villain in this AC, look no further than these frackers...  ...

sex raft?

From the WTF files... In 1973, Mexican anthropologist Santiago Genovés set out to test a hypothesis. He had been researching the connection between violence and sexuality in monkeys. “Most conflicts,” he noted, “are about sexual access to ovulating females.” But would this apply to humans, too? To find out, Genovés asked a British boat builder to make a 12x7 metre raft called the Acali on which he planned to sail with 10 sexually attractive young people across the Atlantic from the Canary Islands to Mexico. It was like a prototype for the glut of reality TV shows since, a Floating...

he’s the captain now!

Just as maxi-trimaran Spindrift 2 goes code orange for her crack at the Trophy Jules Verne, the Peterson 34 s/v QUIVER is also beginning her own sailing circumnavigation, though at a much more leisurely pace and with far more stops. Years past my earliest sailing exploits, many of which were written about extensively on SA, i'm back with a new boat and an entirely new adventure. After three years of living in Honolulu, i've just finished a multimedia degree from Hawaii Pacific University and am now shoving off on a planned 3-year westabout surf-focused circumnavigation via Cape Horn. She's not...

who needs foils?

The power-to-weight ratios of the Australian 18-foot skiffs are astonishing. Here is Asko Appliances, roaring to the finish on Sydney Harbour yesterday in just 15 knots to secure their win in the 2018-19 NSW State Championships.  Photo: Frank Quealey.  ...

that dumb?

Here is "American Magic" - still one of the most arrogant, wrongly prideful names ever (Did the Dotard come up with that name?) sailing in Pensacola, Florida, perhaps the dumbest state in the US of A. Maybe they should actually call it American Magic That Would Suck Without Foreigners. Thanks to Anarchist Gummy.  ...

is it me or is it you?

Is this a legit beef or some sour grapes? So here is picture from the Australian Youth Championships at the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania which I took on Friday morning. This a premier event of Australian Sailing. All up about 75 coach boats were moored on this and the other wharf. At say an average of AUD $60 000 each that makes about AUD $4.5 million. I could not see that too many were privately owned. People wearing national body issued clothing were busy running around. Presumably, these people are being paid handsomely for what they do as well....

piss poor

This is one of the lamest protest's ever. If this is the direction our sport is headed, then it is doomed. I know all about lame protests - the biggest whiner i have ever seen, tried to protest me for not being in "OD trim". Only one problem, it wasn't an OD or even PHRF race. Oh yeah,and said genius forgot to inform me, or even bother flying a flag. And what is the piss pour protest? "A crew (of a rival boat - ed) exposed his private parts to urinate when they were abeam of each other." In this...
