    Sleeping while Solo Sailing

    There was an article about sleeping patterns for solo sailors here in Finland. Ari Huusela is doing some collaboration with local sleep doctors. The punch line is that in 24h, it's enough to sleep for 1,5 h without interruption "to activate the brains metabolism and for removal of slime"...

    Sailing and fitness

    So back in the days there was, and to some extent still is,  the idea that sailing isn't a sport, because it doesn't require real fitness. Obviously especially dinghy sailors knew that this wasn't really the case, although the training that was required to be an Olympic champion in the 60s...

    2015 Rolex Middle Sea Race

    Maserati vs Phaedo. Could've been interesting in some other race, but in this one. I am quite sure Phaedo will win. Too unpredictable winds for the foiler and also less experience with the boat. Home waters for Soldini though

    The best crew?

    So there's a lot of talk about foils, wings and control systems, but an interesting question IMO is how hard will these new boats actually be to sail fast around the course? How equally matched are the crews? Could some teams chose a "safer" design because they're not as skilled or is it more...

    Interesting moth design

    http://www.vrsport.tv/video/?progId=2258&vidType=program Cool design. Certainly pushing the rules with the transom extension. Must have been class legal though, as he sailed in the UK nationals

    Ketching up with history. Boats yawl love

    So after checking out the http://www.histoiredeshalfs.com/ site, I was a bit surprised to find so many open 60 yawls. It would seem counter intuitive to have many masts on a shorthanded boat. More stuff that can and will break. But on the plus side you have smaller sails, some redundancy and...
