    Everglades Challenge 2022

    Spawn is doing the “Ultimate Florida,” the first portion of which is the Everglades Challenge.  So pick UF2022 in the event category on the tracker and you should see them.

    Transpac 2021

    Would love to see them finish first, but @ +20kts, Pyewacket is probably cracking off the miles too quickly.  It will be fun to watch for sure.

    Team NYYC

    Just for a rough, conservative calculation: If there were 40 people working on the repair for 10 hrs/day over the course of 5 days, that's 2,000 man hours.  It's also 2.5% of the mentioned 80,000 original build time.  I'd bet there were more people and longer hours than that, so it doesn't seems...

    Brest Atlantiques 2019

    Well said.   I also think it's interesting that with the AC theories, people are wondering who can stay on the foils 100% of the time in a 20-30 minute race.  These guys spend more time on their foils while trying to fall asleep!

    This may be true, but outright speed isn't the only important factor.  Headsails may be extremely useful for maneuvering and accelerating back to top speed.

    Team NYYC

    Are my eyes deceiving me or is the boat actually really dark navy, not black?

    NYYC Invitational IC37

    was it good production compared to Monday Night Football?  No. were they able to deliver and make the event interesting for those of us who aren't sailing in it (i.e. sitting at our desks?).  Yes. Still a long way to go, but certainly steps in the right direction. EDIT: also, I applaud the...

    Two sailors and dogs rescued after 5 months

    Why did they happen to have a year's worth of food?

    strict class

    My guess on the single source sails: NYYC will acquire 20 sets for their 20 boats which will then be rotated for events.   e.g.: boat #7 may be assigned sail set #12 for one event then sail set #3 for the next event.  Hopefully this takes the sail quality/condition out of the question for their...

    Marblehead to Halifax 2017

    Did anyone catch the name of the guy who did the weather briefing today?  It was easily the most useful one I have ever attended.

    Anyone able to get them on AIS? Surprised they wouldn't be squawking.

    All American Offshore Team

    It is important to note that a big portion of the AAOT is to create an enduring program. To me it would be sensible to bring in more experienced junior sailors on the front end just to develop a baseline of people who are skilled and comfortable with the boat. Then, over time, integrate more...
