    The Boulevard Of Broken Dreams



    It was a day of mixed and extreme emotions in the boat park this afternoon after the fleet came ashore at the end of a vital third day of Qualifying at the 49er and 49erFX World Championships in Lanzarote.

    For some this was perhaps the hardest day they will ever experience in their Olympic sailing career. For some who didn’t make it through to Gold Fleet, who find themselves relegated to Silver, it could well spell the end of their dreams of making it to Paris 2024.

    Xiaoyu Hu and Mengyuan Shan have taken a surprise early lead in the women’s skiff competition on day one of the 49er and 49erFX World Championships in Lanzarote.

    With the 51-boat FX fleet divided into Yellow and Blue qualifying groups for the first three days, the groups headed off towards two separate race courses. Few could have predicted just how different those courses would prove to be.

  • 2024 DH Farallones: Taming The Beast!
    by Photoboy



    The Doublehanded Farallones Race was a true test of mettle this year, dishing out 25-35 knots of southerly storm winds, which gradually turned offshore, meaning that it was sort of a reverse Farallones race – off the wind on the way to the island, and upwind on the way back. Boats that were able to reduce sails and remain in control found that they had a record-fast sail out to the island in rough conditions, but had a slower return back against the wind. The winds eventually

    There are times when universes collide, bringing various masses hurtling together in a semi quantum chaotic stew that can only be attributed to timing, weather and the pull from planetary forces... Saturday's racing in the waters off Treasure Island was one of them.
