    Miami SB dinghy rental/beg/borrow/steal

    Folks I'm in Miami south beach for Christmas and it's blowing a pretty decent SE force 3-4. I've been stuck in landlocked Alberta all year and am jonesing for a spin in a laser/Finn anything. Been sailing since I was a kid and it's killing me that I can't get out on the water. Any suggestions...

    Charter in Bahamas

    Evening folks, Supposed to be attending a wedding in/around Nassau in late October. There's a group of us travelling together, two couples and four mates, and I'm keen to sell them on a yacht charter for 7-10 days. I'd like something in the 50'-60' range. Trying to avoid Sunsail et al. Has...

    Yeah very plausible. During some sailing in Oz years ago, I learned shitloads from an old sea dog from Manly who would pull out the charts and explain everything to me. Had only been a racer up till then as a kid. Blind nav, stars.. all that stuff. I learned pretty quickly to stop pointing out...

    Ask Nico

    Incredible stuff from all the team, glad you are all safe. Q: Was anything missed or forgotten during the watch change prior to the incident? Was the previous watch aware of the shallows? Hope you guys get back on the water.

    Team Vestas grounded

    Debatable.. they were going straight at it. For sure... bearing away would have sent them into it at an angle. Could have crashed gybed it too. but either way it was all too late

    Easier said than done with a powered up V65 but agree in principle. Clearly the helm had no idea he was straight-lining into <40m of water "wow." ("You can see the lines here") Which indicates no-one told him. If Nico was on watch that shift, which looks like he was, helm probably...

    they skirted Rodrigues Island and the Maldives last time. Didn't one or two of the boats hide in there for repairs? Not sure what the depths were though
