port!

This appears to be dicky no matter the sitch, and while we don't exactly know, here is what Anarchist Liz said about it: Hi, this is the second image recently taken Jan 12 on Tampa Bay at an Opti Regatta. The negligent adult skipper plowed through the clearly marked Opti race course no sign of safety. He also yelled obscenities at the children (ages 8-12) telling them to get the F%$# out of the way. Please note he is also on Port tack. Regardless, he had the choice to stay clear like all of the other large boats and chose...

12 year bitch

Local Knowledge It's pretty rare when you race against the same boat with pretty much the same people for the better part of 12 years. I am speaking of the FT 10 Justice, first with my original FT 10 Anarchy, then with my Melges 32, and now with my recent FT 10 A4. (Yes, there was a Shaw 650, a GP 26 and the SC 33), but those don't really count. One reason why I got a second Tiger (besides absolutely loving the boat) was to take care of some unfinished business. When they first got Justice, we had our...

traction control

It was a bold move and it seems to be working. Leonardo Ferragamo and Enrico Chieffi’s big idea – to rekindle the Corinthian spirit and the intense, but gentlemanly competition between nations, of classic regattas such as the Admiral’s Cup and Sardinia Cup, in a carefully managed one-design format, propelled by the powerful brand values of Nautor’s Swan – is steadily gathering momentum. The inaugural edition of ClubSwan’s biennial tournament, The Nations Trophy, in Palma last autumn was, by all accounts, a very promising start, with close competition in all three one-design classes, ClubSwan 50, Swan 45 and ClubSwan 42,...

Tanguy de Lamotte and Sébastien Audigane looking pretty unhappy onboard Initiatives Saveurs winnng the Normandy Channel Race. From Tanguy de Lamotte: It was a really tough race and we thought we had blown the race when the mainsail split on a gybe off Cherbourg with 80 miles to go; the same happened on the Route de Rhum in 2010!Fortunately we were under gennaker and the mainsail stayed up until the finish... just!! The boat was great and we were fast in all conditions and very pleased to have won this race with the Rogers boats in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. It shows the...
