Down But Not Out

  #
image-larks light air
Whether from a traumatic injury or general wear and tear, chances are that something is eventually going to lay low even the healthiest athletes. Knowing when to take a break and recover is just as important as hitting the gym, and dealing with your injuries instead of ignoring them will help reduce the time it takes to get you back in the game. Especially in the off-season, you should be checking in with your body and making sure that it’s at 100 percent.
 
Even college-aged sailors know the aches and pains that come along with physical activity: sore backs from hiking and irritated knees from crouching in light air, to name just two. Aside from strains accumulated while actually sailing are those from day-to-day life, whether it be from cardio, lifting, or getting a little too rowdy with your friends. There are a few important steps to take to prevent avoidable injuries, and some strategies for coping with them after the fact in order to get back on the water, or to the gym, faster.  more...

Better Know a Viperer: Lee Shuckerow

  #
With the holidays here, we decided to bring back the Better Know a Viperer series as a present to everyone in the class and to give folks something to read if they're tired of watching Christmas specials and college football bowl games.  The only natural choice to break this spell was Viper 640 supercrew Lee Shuckerow.  While a co-owner of Jackpot, Lee is most often found in the front of the boat, where he has crossed the finish-line ahead of teammates Brad Boston and Eric Vigrass in each of their three Viper North American championship titles.  To find out what makes Jackpot tick and to address rumors that Lee doesn't know what the tiller looks like, we sat down with Shuck over a pitcher of Labatt's...  more...

Frostbiting: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

  #
image-wetass1
"It's the most wonderful time of the year."
 
That chorus keeps running through my head because it's the holiday season. Cold weather is settling over the mid-Atlantic, the leaves are gone from the trees, and there is talk of snow and freeze warnings from weather forecasters. It's my favorite time of the year, so of course I am excited. But my enthusiasm and anticipation has little to do with a fat, bearded, old guy in a red suit, or mistletoe, or presents. Instead, for me (and a small minority of Lasering oddballs) this is a joyous time of year because the arrival of winter means the arrival of the Laser frostbiting season. And that means drysuits, short-course racing, blustery winds, and Sundays well-spent.  more...

Successful year for the Chicago Match Race Center

  #
As 2012 comes to a close, the Chicago Match Race Center can look back on a phenomenal year. A total of thirteen events spread from February through October offered sailors, sponsors and spectators the full spectrum of match race sailing, from the one-day intramural Grade 5 level regattas to the Grade WC $100,000 prize money Chicago Match Cup, the only US stop on the Alpari World Match Racing Tour. In all, 60 different teams representing 15 countries competed at CMRC this season.
 
Nowhere else in the world offers such a breadth and depth of match race sailing, which is why CMRC attracted dozens of teams from around the US and around the world to come to train and race either at CMRC's Belmont Harbor base or the spectacular race venue at Navy Pier.   more...

Return of Swan 42, resurgence of Melges 24 bolster Quantum Key West

  #
Quantum Key West 2013John Hele has wanted to compete in the popular annual race week off Key West ever since he got into sailboat racing. The New York Yacht Club member will finally get to achieve that goal next month because the Swan 42 class is coming back to the beautiful blue waters off the Conch Republic.
 
"Key West has been on my bucket list for a long time. That is one of the most spectacular locations to go sailing and I'm very much looking forward to it," Hele said.
 
     The return of the Swan 42 as a one-design class and the resurgence of the Melges 24 fleet are among many highlights of Quantum Key West 2013. The Event Organizer and officials with title sponsor Quantum Sail Design Group see those two success stories as further indication the popular winter regatta has weathered the storm.  more...

Sally Barkow Takes Carlos Aguilar Match Race Title

  #
The USA's Sally Barkow played the 'comeback kid' by defeating the USA's Dave Perry 3-0 in the Finals at the 5th Carlos Aguilar Match Race (CAMR), presented by Ulysse Nardin/Trident Jewels & Time.
Barkow, who has raced this regatta four times, took second last year after a narrow defeat by Finland's Staphan Lindberg. The sorrow of that defeat made this year's win for Barkow and her crew - Annie Lush, Alana O'Reilly, Erik Champaign and Maggie Shea - all the sweeter.  more...

Force 5 – The Class That Even a Powersaw Couldn’t Kill

  #
Editor’s note: My first sailboat, purchased with summer job earnings when I was 16, was a Force 5. I was considering a Laser, but was drawn to the Force 5’s mahogany blades, thwart and splash coaming, Harken blocks and 91 square foot North sail that gave the Force 5 more horsepower than the Laser. A friend of my father’s worked for AMF (the builder of the Force 5), and when he offered his employee discount I became the proud owner of #4935. Incidentally, AMF owned Harley-Davidson at that time and I was also keen on the 350 Sprint, an Italian import built by Aermacchi. Alas, my assertion that it would provide practical, economical transportation fell on deaf parental ears.  more...
