Vitters Shipyard does it again. “Sarissa” a 42.6 m (140.58′) carbon fiber spectacle, is the largest carbon sloop built in the Netherlands, maybe even in the world, to date. Check out the Vitters Shipyard YouTube feed for more super yacht footage. This design oozes modern style, remarkable speed (it cruises at 11 knots) and offers far […]

One Boat Closer….V.O.R.

I can hardly wait any longer for this race to kick off. Since hydro-foiling catamaran’s with fixed wings are still not safe to sail around the world, the Volvo Ocean 65 will have to do ;-0) Although it does look like they have integrated the wave piercing bow into the design……. These boats are obviously […]

Oh to Dream

Sometimes it nice just to see what the world’s financially elite are up to. Apparently being an architect pays well… Behold the beautiful 44.7m (147ft) lift keel sloop “Lady B”. Built and launched by Vitters Shipyard who design some pretty incredible boats. “Lady B” is a sleek performance yacht with the ever-sought-after low-slung lines of classic […]

Uh Oh!

Looks like the MOD 70’s experienced yet another capsize just a couple of weeks ago while practicing for the Transat Jacques Vabre. It’s pretty serious when these things go over as Team Spindrift can vouch for with their spill back in June in Dùn Laoghaire, Ireland. ~Video courtesy of SailingNews’ YouTube Channel   Virbac Paprec was […]

Despite the Americas Cup action being over, the Extreme 40’s, the fleet that started all of this ‘huff-luff’, is still at it. These cats may not have fixed wings or hydrofoils for that matter, but there is always a consistently good turnout and some high speed sailing to be had. Check out some highlights of […]

The Oracle sponsored team is going to have to maintain this trend for a while in order to stay “in-the-swing-of-things”. The current score is 3 to -1, New Zealand. Each […]

A New Twist on Sails

People have been talking more and more about wing sails these days. This technology can’t possibly make its transition into the cruising sailboat market, or can it? Yachting Monthly checks out the new Elan 37 equipped with the Omer Wing Sail. A wing shaped soft sail that can be doused, stowed, and even reefed. It […]

Artemis Says Goodbye,

…….but not for good. Having overcome such a great tragedy as the Swedish team has endured, the mere participation of the team’s New AC72 and its crew is remarkable. Artemis Racing Chairman Torbjorn Tornqvist says “I certainly see this was the first campaign, but not the last one”. Check out the Semi-final Race 4 Highlights. […]
