flipper

Bit of a tornado went through Westhaven Marina, Auckland on Monday night. Did quite a lot of damage, one sunk boat, one 17.5m Catamran flipped over, and one superyacht flattened. Have a look at the linked CCTV footage, the cat being flipped through the air is something else. - Anarchist Clipper....

it ain’t easy

A friend of ours was sitting on his boat at SDYC, watching this guy try and try and try to sail his moth in a solid 12-14 in La Playa. Apparently way more time spent down than up, but these things ain't easy!...

harsh reality

One hundred years and seven months later on July 26, 2019…my birthday… Iolaire was lost on the NE coast of Ibeza because of bad seamanship, running downwind in heavy weather, close to shore, no main boom preventer rigged, inadvertent jibe, she drove ashore sank, crew ashore in life raft. Thus ended Iolaire’s 114 years of taking care of crew thru thick and thin. - Don Street. Jump in our forum to comment....

shocking. not.

Do you want to watch the racing from the Tokyo 2020 test event, the biggest thing in Olympic sailing so far this cycle? Well, you can't. World Sailing isn't putting on any kind of broadcast coverage (and that includes highlights for TV companies/online). Odd, given it's the one chance to test everything ahead of the Olympics, but more odd given that the World Cup Series Enoshima which follows a few days later has four days of live streaming and coverage by a full production crew. Someone's got their priorities wrong…...

infighting

It would appear that the rumors of a significant change at the Ullman San Diego loft are true. As we understand it, Ullman International (not exactly our friends, btw) have  revoked their licence from the current owner, and awarded it to Chuck Skewes, long the front man for the dago loft. Of course this is likely to get ugly as the past licencee has employees, owns all the loft equipment, as well as the lease on their building. Might this be a good opportunity for another brand to swoop in, put their name on the door, add some of their...

going big

Bari based Neo Yachts has followed the success of the 400 and 350 with it’s most audacious reach yet for the edge of the racer cruiser envelope. The Carkeek designed Neo 570c is targeting the performance of a modern TP52 with the comforts of a cruising design. Neo Yachts Principal Paolo Semeraro explains: "We spent some time researching the outcomes of major IRC/ORC racing events and found that in more than 80 per cent of those regattas, the winning boat was a TP52" Modern hulls are so wide that it’s easy to fit two very big aft cabins into the...

cat land

While catamarans are not the only pleasure boats built in South Africa, the market is clearly dominated by cruising cats – both big and small, power and sail South Africa really is the land of the multihull – or, more specifically, the cruising catamaran. Of course, cats are not the only pleasure boats built in South Africa, but whereas you can count the former well into three figures, the latter sector is in low double digits.
