  • 2024 DH Farallones: Taming The Beast!

    2024 DH Farallones: Taming The Beast!




    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

    EMIRATES TEAM NEW ZEALAND FIRST TO SAIL THE NEW AC75
    With the weather clearing in Auckland, Emirates Team New Zealand took advantage of a window to quietly launch the raceboat that will defend the Louis Vuitton 37th America’s Cup in Barcelona in October. The hopes of this sailing-mad nation rest on a progressive and heavily refined design, a (big) step-on from their America’s Cup winning boat ‘Te Rehutai’ of AC36. The

    Spring Keel And Wheeler Welcome The Return Of Winter Weather!

    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.

    The St Francis Yacht Club was hosting the Spring Fest, with some of the fleets starting of the western edge of T.I. and simultaneously, the Berkeley Yacht Club was hosting the Annual Rollo Wheeler Regatta off the Berkeley

    Worth The Wait: The Breeze Returns To Mallorca

    5 Apr 2024

    The best winds came in late at the 53 Trofeo Princesa Sofia Mallorca by Iberostar today but the wait was worth it, especially for Britain’s ILCA 7 racer Micky Beckett and Italian Nacra 17 Olympic and world champions Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti who won their events with a day to spare at the Mallorca’s emblematic Olympic classes event which has drawn a record entry for an Olympic year.

    With gusts to over 30kts at times and a big, untidy swell which has been built up by nearly two weeks of strong winds in the Balearica Islands, of the ten Olympic scheduled events only the Formula Kite Men and Women, the ILCA 6 and ILCA 7 singlehanders and the redoubtable 470 Mixed were actually able to race and open their accounts on schedule at the 53 Trofeo Princesa Sofia Mallorca by Iberostar.

    March Goes Out With A Blast On The Solent

    Cowes IOW, 31 March 2024 - The final day of the RORC Easter Challenge produced yet another variation in conditions with a medium-strong easterly breeze piping up to nearly 20 knots. The sturdy easterly going tide, built during the day, to create classic Solent chop.

    After two intensive coaching days from Mason King’s team ably assisted by North Sails, the focus moved to putting the lessons learnt into practice and literally win the Easter Chocolates. Every class winner was decided

    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

    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.
