Leader of the Pack - North Sails

  #

E Scow Easterns Championship - Lavallette Yacht Club - Lavallette, New Jersey

The Lavallette Yacht Club hosted the E Scow Easterns Championship with a huge 100th year club celebration. Wow! What a party! All weekend long! The 33 boats enjoyed a lot of sailing and a lot of on shore activities.

With the conditions the fleet was presented with you really need to use all 5 designs. The North AP mainsail, the Light-Medium Jib, the Medium Heavy Jib and then the fastest kites in the world - the E Runner and Reacher.

In the end it was very apparent that North Sails were the choice of the winners. North Sails won every race of the Eastern Championship. North Sails were 1st - 5th. A very dominant performance.   more...

Juan Kouyoumdjian speaks

  #

Juan KouyoumdjianJuan Kouyoumdjian breathes air, but thinks boats. Fast boats. At 33, the Argentinean is already on his third America's Cup campaign and is also in charge of developing the designs for the two ABN-AMRO boats. Stuart Alexander, sailing correspondent for the Independent, tracked him down in Valencia.


SA: Juan, where did life begin for you, where did you go to school and what was your first experience in the yacht design business?

JK: I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1971 and I went to French lycee there until I was 17. At that point I went to England and took a yacht design course at the Southampton Institute and I graduated from there in 1993. My first job, just two months after I graduated, was with Philippe Briand in La Rochelle and I was thrown straight into the America's Cup withLe Defi, preparing for the 1995 challenge in San Diego.   more...

Retractable Triducer

  #
Retractable TriducerAirmar’s new retractable triducer is useful when depth, speed and water temperature are needed. Retractability, by the way, means that the speed element can be removed and cleaned of fouling materials without hauling the boat. Airmar’s new unit can also be retrofitted into retractable holders that support transducers with only two outputs—depth and speed, or depth and water temperature.

The real advantage of this triducer is its ability to work with either analog or digital instruments that digitize data in a main housing or simply use NMEA 1083 or 2000 data. The digital triducer works with networking systems from Simrad, Furuno and Raymarine.   more...

In Praise of the RDF

  #
Not long ago, I was indulging in my favorite pastime of poking through nautical salvage yards on a rainy Saturday. This is usually an innocuous waste of an hour or two, except when I bring home some remnant of a failed project or artifact of bygone sailing days worthy of the Antique Roadshow. But on this particular day, I was sifting the contents of some broken milk crates and greasy cardboard boxes when I discovered a floor-to-ceiling shelf of old, portable RDFs. Covered in years of dust and cobwebs, this wall of yesteryear's technology was like a beacon of light in a musty cellar.  more...

Can a Middle-Aged Woman Learn to Sail?

  #

The nest is finally empty and I’m wondering what’s next? We’re in between our own kids and grandkids—that happy time of life when the aches and pains are still few, the disposable cash is a little more than ever before, and time just for each other has finally reappeared in our schedules. The question looming large and on the horizon now is: Whatever shall we do with ourselves?  The late night scene and raucous parties just don’t hold the same appeal—the ‘been there, done that’ column includes community work, flying lessons, golf, photography, and on and on and on.  But, true to the nature of the male species, my darling husband has yet another idea: “Let’s go sailing!”    more...

U.S. Team Ready to Answer the Bell: Part III

  #

Over the past five Olympic Games, the U.S. Sailing Team has performed well, earning 27 medals out of 46 classes. This impressive performance will be tested in Athens. Competition is getting tougher. In fact, parity is the trend. For example, in Sydney in 2000, 16 countries shared 33 medals. And in Savannah in 1996, a record 23 countries earned medals. Still, in Athens, America's chances are encouraging.

The U.S. sailors have been working hard preparing for the Games. While all were definitive winners in their respective classes in the U.S. Trials, they've realized that qualifying was just the start of their preparation. I had a chance to interview each sailor and found their attitude to be very determined. Here are their thoughts.   more...

The Saronic Gulf Comes To Life

  #

The sailing venue in Agios Kosmas, Athens, came to life today as the first practice races took place in sailing areas B, C and D. Many of the top athletes decided not to participate but still, most took advantage of the chance to measure their abilities against fellow competitors.

The start of the races for the Mistral, 470 Mens and Womens, Finn and Yngling was at approximately 13.00. This is the time when the sea breeze begins to establish itself, meaning that the wind is still unpredictable, shifty in both strength and direction.   more...

RANDALL PITTMAN'S OTHER BOAT

  #

(Much has been written about Randall Pitman's hot new Dubois 90-foot, canting ballast race boat. However, Pittman has another pretty amazing sailboat - the 140-foot Whirlaway. Here's an excerpt from a story editor Richard Hazelton did about Whirlaway for 48 Degrees North.)

Whirlaway was designed by Dubois Naval Arch. (www.duboisyachts.com) and built in 2002 by Vitters Shipyard in the Netherlands (www.vitters.com). She is the sistership to African Queen, now renamed Red Dragon. Randall, however, wanted to increase the performance so the draft was increased to 4.7m, and an extending dagger board was designed to take the draft to 7m when sailing upwind. This added righting moment and allowed for a taller rig, (170 ft.) for added sail area. Another modification to make the boat lighter was the use of Nomax panels. These panels are used in airplanes because of their strength, thermal and sound deadening properties, but especially for their light weight. "We saved 89,000 pounds, compared to the sistership," says Randall.   more...

Kevin Hall - Olympics 2004

  #
Ventura, California, sailor Kevin Hall has been in Athens since June, preparing to race in the Finn class at the Olympic Regatta. The first race for Finns is on August 14. After competing in the 2002 Louis Vuitton Cup as OneWorld Challenge's navigator, Hall started training in the Finn less than a year before the Olympic Trials. He rose to the top of the class in short order, and this month we'll see how he measures up against a very strong European fleet, led by Finn world champ and two-time Olympic medalist Ben Ainslie.   more...
