  • Kelaerin Recovered

    You might recall the loss of the Kelaerin just over a month ago. CLICK HERE

    As luck would have it, she was recovered and is reported to be in good shape!




    SAN FRANCISCO — The Coast Guard Cutter Barracuda crew found the vessel, the Kelaerin, Sunday while on routine patrol near Fort Bragg more than 440 miles south-southeast from its position on June 16.

    The Barracuda crew inspected the vessel's seaworthiness and took it in tow toward the coast, where a Coast Guard Station Fort Bragg 47-foot Motor Lifeboat crew relieved the tow and moored the vessel at the B Dock in Fort Bragg, Monday morning. Coast Guard Sector Humboldt Bay watchstanders contacted the owners to notify them the vessel had been found.

    The owners were reportedly sailing from Hawaii to Bellingham, Washington, in June when a storm rendered their vessel disabled and tore their main sail. The couple activated their emergency position indicating radio beacon, and a helicopter crew from Coast Guard Sector Columbia River in Astoria, Oregon, responded and rescued them. The sailors were transferred to emergency medical services personnel with symptoms of hypothermia.

    After the rescue, Coast Guard watchstanders warned mariners about the adrift sailing vessel via VHF radio.

    "The vessel was not under power and was completely at the mercy of the sea," said Chief Warrant Officer Chris Ramp, the Sector Humboldt Bay command center chief. "The owners probably never thought they'd see it again. Thankfully, the Barracuda crew kept a vigilant eye on the water and spotted the vessel so they could bring it back to shore."










    Kit Stycket just happened to be in Ft Bragg working on an old boat and noticed that Kelaerin had been towed in
    yesterday. Kit was kind enough to walk to the dock and take a few images for us!

      by Photoboy





      Scheduled for day two of the IMA Maxi Europeans’ inshore/coastal racing were two windward-leewards. After a delay out on the Bay of Naples, the wind finally built to 8-12 knots from the west. After one aborted start due to a wind shift and another for a general recall, racing for the 21 maxis eventually got underway at 1515 CEST.

      May 15, 2022 - Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA - After two full years of hiatus in the schedule of the World Championships, the International Melges 24 Class returned to assign a most coveted World Title: it was October 2019 when in Villasimius Luca Perego’s Maidollis was crowned World Champion for the second time, and, after that moment the pandemic blocked everything, preventing the dispute of the 2020 and 2021 World Championship and the 2020 European Championship.

      by Photoboy






      The start of the 67th Tre Golfi Regatta was as picturesque as ever, thanks to the event's second ever sunset departure in place of the traditional midnight kick-off.

      The Gulf of Naples, with Capri and Vesuvius illuminated by the warm light of the setting sun, provided a stunning backdrop.

      A fleet of 130 boats that took to the starting line were clearly visible even from the streets of Santa Lucia, leaving passers-by amazed by the

    • The Longest Day Turns Late Into The Night
      by Photoboy



      It was 8am, and the PRO (Principal Race Officer) John Williams was starting the daily Skipper’s meeting. The general feeling in the air was one of mild "dis-jointedness”… just a little “off”. The reason was likely due to the fact that the start of the leg this day had been moved up to 9am - an hour earlier than usual. And, that the teams were facing the longest leg of the event: Jacksonville Beach, FL to Tybee Island, GA - Roughly 128 miles...

      Ed Note: We're lucky to have this report by Andrew Nelson, skipper of the Olson 30 Scoundrel. As the Youth Sailing Director for The Sailing Foundation, he's getting kids' butts in boats. A noble cause, indeed. Thanks, Andrew.
