    Mattapoisett Boatyard Catches Fire

    MATTAPOISETT, Mass. (AP) — A huge fire at a Massachusetts marina turned several boats, buildings and vehicles into burned-out shells Friday, producing a plume of black smoke so thick it was picked up by weather radar.





    Aerial video taken by WCVB-TV showed much of the boatyard in Mattapoisett engulfed in flames, with the fire apparently limited to buildings and boats on land. A firefighting vessel could be seen pulled up to the dock, getting as close as possible

    A Hard U Turn For Ant Artic Lab




    Safety over Ambition. Norbert Sedlacek Koch made a U-turn.

    The second night at sea was already quite intense. Skipper Norbert Sedlacek Koch had to tack against 40 knots of wind through a rocky sea.

    Today, at 2:05 PM, he informed his shore crew that the IY Open60AAL has hit an unidentified floating object and the rudder fixation had broken. Sadly, as the rudders are essential to steer a boat in the right direction, he had to turn around once again. It

    Aspire returns to 5.5 Metre circuit to dominate opening day of Swiss Open




    The 5.5 Metre class is famous for going to nice venues, but no one was really prepared for how nice the first day of the 2022 Swiss Open turned out. Aspire (POL 17, Mateusz Kusznierewicz, Przemysław Gacek, Edward Wright) took three race wins to lead overnight with Caracole (SUI 214, Bernard Haissly, Nicolas Berthoud, Daniel Stampfli) winning the third race to sit in second on equal points

    It’s amazing how $24 million (around R390 million) can be blown out of the water.

    Italian car industry boss Paolo Scudieri had just received his brand new 43,7-metre Aria SF superyacht from the shipyard when things took a turn south.

    The yacht was about to enjoy her maiden season in the Mediterranean when she went up in flames off the coast of Formentera, Spain, in the Balearic

    Putting A Cork In The 2022 5o5 Worlds

    The struggle of the 505 Worlds is over, we had wind….

    Yesterday was a lay day and the plan was to catch up some races, but again there was no wind so the locals pulled out their boats and we cruised the harbour to Cobh and Cork.





    Today, inshore, there was no wind but once we got outside the harbour, the fleet was greeted with a 12-14kn from the N/E. We had wind and we were going sailing. It was a gradient breeze and expected to wane a little as

The team was so dominant through the first six races of the regatta it was able to enjoy a leisurely cruise to the dock while

    by Photoboy
    A disaster narrowly averted:
    Merlin was sailing well on the 1st day of the Rolex Big Boat Series last Thursday when a nasty halyard wrap forced them to retire towards the end of the 1st race. The crew assessed the problem and the boat made arrangements with KKMI in Richmond to get the carbon headstay replaced in short order. While she missed the 1st start on Friday, the boat and crew were back out and racing for race 4.
