it doesn’t even matter

The organizers of next year’s Olympic Games in Tokyo have decided to cut the number of spectators for the sailing events by a third so they can be quickly evacuated to higher ground in the event of a tsunami. The 2020 Tokyo Olympics organising committee had initially planned to allow up to 5,000 people to watch the sailing events off Enoshima island, just south of the Japanese capital, according to the public broadcaster NHK.

college review, II

Next in Line:   If fleet racing is a zen-like endeavor where sailors compete mainly against themselves while the opposition is a secondary consideration, team racing is a one-on-one match where your squad must work together in perfect harmony to take down the opponents. It is match racing multiplied by three. Don’t forget to check our out the S1D ICSA Pre-Season Team Race Rankings, complete with coach panel analysis, presented by Dynamic Dollies. The top team race teams have a star, an elite sailor that has the speed and boat handling to hang with the best and the leadership to boost younger, inexperienced teammates. The final-four teams have two of these stars and a third experienced skipper that has battled along-side the other two drivers at the highest level. The championship caliber teams have the full package. They have a superstar, the have a sneaky speedster, they have a scrappy team racer and 3 or more mechanically sound crews that know where to look and make their drivers omniscient. Read on....

At its boot Düsseldorf press conference last week, Finnish yacht-builder Nautor’s Swan said that the renewal of its product range has contributed to enhancing its financial performance. Turnover has risen 26% following the renewal of the range, which currently sees six new models in build. This has resulted in an active order book in excess of €110m, with 11 yachts being delivered in 2018 and over 20 anticipated this year. The new line comprises the Swan 48, 65, 98 and 120, together with the ClubSwan 36 and 125, the former of which features an inboard version of Torqeedo’s Cruise 10.0 electric drive system. With six new models in construction, Nautor’s Swan is confirming its leadership across a wide range – from 10m-40m (39ft-131ft).
