    Galicia Opens The Door For 2022 Super Series Season




    The 52 SUPER SERIES fleet warmed up for Tuesday’s start of the 2022 season with three good practice races today on the beautiful r?a de Vigo off Baiona where the world’s leading grand prix monohull circuit is visiting for the very first time in its ten year history.
    As if to underline how open this five-regatta season is likely to be, there were three different race winners, Harm M?ller Spreer’s Platoon, the Plattner family’s Phoenix with Tom Slingsby

    Fast And Furious At Vice Admirals Cup

    Fast, furious and exceptionally close racing at the RORC Vice Admiral’s Cup




    A stunning opening day delivered three fast-paced and testing races for every class. After a short wait for the wind to fill in, it quickly built to a solid west-southwesterly of 12-14 knots.

    The breeze then rose further, with gusts into the mid 20s, accompanied by plenty of excitement as downwind boat speeds topped 20 knots for some.

    The smaller boats in the HP30...

    United As One



    Racing in light conditions can often be boring and frustrating but for the penultimate day of the first ever IMA Maxi European Championship it was anything but – for spectators at least - with significant shifts, occasional shut-downs on a coastal course on a WSW-ENE axis deep into the Bay of Naples to the north of the Sorrentine peninsula.

    After a delay ashore and then on the water, the race for the 21 entries got underway just before 1500 CEST with a short upwind

    Lyra Making Waves At IMA Maxi Europeans






    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.

    Hurricane Fiona is the first Category 4 storm of the 2022 season. SD 1078 is battling 50-foot waves and winds measured over 100 mph to collect critical scientific data and, in the process, is providing a completely new view of one of Earth’s most destructive forces.

  • Calamity Averted Aboard The Wizard
    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.
    Had the team not been tuned into the rig's nuances, a much more
