    Class 40 : Normandy channel Race 2022

    I doubt that very much. The UK is fucked along with any thoughts of winning anything, there have been's.  Look at how the French win then get back to me. Dinghy sail and make your way through the ranks  to get where you want to. People who haven't dinghy sailed it shows in  the results.

    Route du Rhum 2018

    Cattle prod big enough ? No . As soon as you jump on a boat single handed it takes a special person to do that. I prefer to sail two handed on a Class 40 and that's hard enough.How many days doing 24/7 and more.  Those who judge have not and do not do it. I for one would not know how to sail a...

    AC 36 Protocol

    75 ft monohull  with wing mast  and foils would be great with six crew max  if possible would make it different. So whats it to be a 75ft skiff or 75ft Moth?

    AC 36 Protocol

    What that the next AC will be sailed by illegal immigrants to get round the rule .There's sadly plenty and I expect they have more talent  going to waste than  the pick of the same old faces at the moment. New people in the sport  is required and that ain't gonna happen in the  good old stuck up...

    AC 36 Protocol

    I see people on here whinging about passports  etc ,sadly I  live in the UK and have dual nationality  UK and Australia . I will always choose to sail as an Australian as the UK has it's head firmly lodged up it's arse and will always be so. As to building the yachts will be interesting as the...

    Game On

    Why bother with people like that who will not let you compete. Set your own race up and use the local pub as your club, friendlier people and no bullshit. Any one wearing sailing gear in the pub has to buy a round. Simple.

    It's my wife's fault when she cracked Mark over the head with a hoover and now it's coming to fruition.

    volvo goes both ways

    RIP Volvo ,trying to be many things and not get to the bottom of the problem is  ridiculous. So as we have seen what happens when a foil breaks  and you are pushed to the back or retire on that leg, not good for sponsors . Then we have cat inshore round the cans sailing? WTF.  It is suppose to...

    Vendee Globe 2016?

    The gap from north to south is set to increase with the advantage going to Thomson, who will be sailing along the Ice Wall at 42°30S: more wind and a better bearing should see him extend his lead.

    Vendee Globe 2016?

    HB looks to be staying close to the exclusion zone and on paper is the right thing to do where the weather will be coming up from the south. To go north is not good as it takes longer to hook up with the weather systems .Always go to the weather systems and hook up and try to ride as long as...
