    Square Waves: Not An 1980's New Wave Band



    Square waves or cross sea. The Ile de Re is an island in the French Atlantic and hides some of the strangest natural phenomena in the world: Its waves are square. The explanation is quite simple: They are normal waves that form a grid on the surface of the sea, as if it were a chess board. This is what is known in navigation as a crossed sea, a two-way sea or a cross of the sea. It is the state of the sea in which two wave systems travel at oblique angles.

    Cargo Sailing Vessel De Gallant Sinks Near Bahamian Island

    The vintage 1916 90-foot gaff rigged schooner De Gallant which was transporting coffee and cacao from Colombia to Europe sank in the Bahamas early yesterday with eight persons aboard. U.S. Coast Guard helicopters from nearby Great Inagua rescued six of them from a pair of liferafts.

    Thirty hours later the search continued for the missing two—both of whom are women and professional sailors—in a search area that stretches from the Inaguas to Horseshoe Reef. They were wearing

    A 55-year-old grandmother swam 17 hours across the Gulf of the Farallones this weekend, braving jellyfish, darkness, fog, frigid water and the shark-infested “Red Triangle” to become the first person in history to complete the treacherous outbound route.

    2024 Singlehanded Farallones: A Cold Slog To Nowhere

    Saturday's SSS Singlehanded Farallones Race looked good on paper, a couple days out.





    Warm weather, great visibility and a southerly breeze along the shoreline... Even a 4.0 knot ebb 2 hours before the scheduled start.
    But alas, the high pressure that was delivering sunny summer like conditions relaxed and allowed a deep marine layer to slip underneath its dome, and with it a drastic drop in temperatures, visibility and wind...

    Keeping In Tune For The Olympic Games






    Big breeze and massive wind shifts of day two of the Nacra 17 World Championship delivered plenty of drama in La Grande Motte, the South of France.

    Selection trials continue for three countries at what is the last big event of the season before the greatest one of all, the Olympic Games just over two months from now. While the destiny of most of the 148 teams in Nacra 17, 49er and 49erFX has already been determined, for the catamaran crews from Austria,
