    Stirring It Up In St Thomas

    Multiple Races Make for Competitive Racing on Day One - 50th St. Thomas International Regatta



    St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. The strategy for the team aboard the USA’s Marc McMorris’ Cape 31, M2, on the first day of racing in the 50th anniversary St. Thomas International Regatta was “to not be that guy who made the mistakes,” says James Espey, M2’s tactician. It wasn’t to be, at least not at first. “The first race we had a gear failure and had to change the sail,” says

    The Kiwi's New Kids On The Block

    KIWI’S NEW STALLIONS IN THE PADDOCK
    On a day where the AC40 showed its simply outrageous potential, the Emirates Team New Zealand two-boat training session ramped into gear with short course racing, plenty of pre-starts, and even an episode of out-running the weather – and a customary capsize to boot. Fabulous sailing in Auckland for the premiere finishing school for the next generation of Kiwi talent under the tutelage of some of the world’s finest foiling sailors.

    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.

    DAY 2 OF 7 UPDATE

    HYERES, FRANCE (22 April 2024) – The breeze swung around the compass today, creating challenges for sailors and race committee alike. While sailable, the shifting winds prevented race officials from fully executing the day’s planned schedule.

    US Sailing Team athlete Noah Lyons continued to excel in the iQFOiL fleet’s slalom racing, scoring a third in the day’s only race. Lyons will enter day three with a six-point lead, once again

  • 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
