    A 10 Day Slog Across The Pacific Aboard Orion





    Mikey "Polish" Radziejowski was aboard the Mod 70' Orion for it's return delivery to San Francisco after it took line honors in the 2023 Transpac Race.

    Alameda Granted Development Rights For The Encinal Terminal

    Located between the Encinal Yacht Club and The Fortman Marina, the former shipping terminal has remained abandoned for decades
    and is now on the development block.

    Not that Alameda needs any more congestion, traffic and high density housing, but on the bright side, *up to 160 slips* is a positive note.

    We will see if and when those slips appear and what capacity they hold.

    Sails of Change takes on the North Atlantic record



    The maxi trimaran Sails of Change set out from New York at 13H10’08” TU on Thursday in an attempt to break the trans-Atlantic record.

    Yesterday’s trickle of yachts competing in this special 50th Rolex Fastnet Race last night turned into a torrent.

    by Photoboy


    After about 10 days in the Southern Ocean, I wake up this morning to the boat broaching. I stop her from broaching only to realize it is freezing outside! The sun is up, it comes up around 4am UTC, there are some cumulus clouds floating about but what broached the boat was a little squall bringing 26 knots after a night of 18-20knots. The boat doesn’t like the sudden change in breeze strength and direction making her wipe out slightly. It’s a gentle broach and easily fixed...
