No Moment of Silence for Florence Arthaud

Better, the passing of the great French sailor was marked at the opening of Les Voiles de St. Barth by a moment of applause. Led by his own legendness, Loïck Peyron. A long moment of applause. ‘Nuff said.

A Couple Feet Higher, Considerably Faster Than

The G4 Gunboat — the first full-galley foiling cat — was already a talking point in St. Barth before it beat its tender over from St. Maarten on Friday afternoon, and before a traveling cruiser dropped anchor too close on Saturday morning, dragged across the G4’s anchor rode, scooped it, rode up on it, wound up bow-to between the hulls, with the rode wrapped around the cruiser’s prop and

Five in a Row for Cal Maritime

Southern California’s hard-working fleet of Catalina 37s — maintained and matched for the Congressional Cup first of all — serve other regattas too. When the Port of Los Angeles, Los Angeles Yacht Club and California Maritime teamed up in 2008 to create the Harbor Cup, that was the logical go-to fleet. And it serves well.

“Saving Sailing” or a Piece of It

Hello, Young Lovers

It’s such a common phrase, such a common feeling, that we take it for granted. The romance of the sea. Even those who dwell far from the sea are not immune to it. Red sails in the sunset.
