You, the shipping community, help us increase the numbers of available search and rescue resources. In other words, you help increase the likelihood people in distress at sea will be saved.

  • Can Activation Lock From Apple Be Passed?

    Owen
    5 Jun 2014 | 5:59 am
    Two hackers have apparently found a means to avoid Apple’s “Activation Lock” attribute in iOS 7, which demands an Apple ID and password to reactivate whether a mobile is remotely wiped. The iPhone or iPad is then tricked into connecting to the hacked server, which unlocks the gadget. Team DoulCi promises to have built the system “with love” for people who have recovered their lost or stolen iDevice, in a effort to regain access to contacts, e-mail, notes, and more. But, as the SecurityWatch pointed out, that’s probably not this hack will be used. A cursory…

    18 Sep 2014 | 7:57 pm
    By the end of 2002, Bart’s sailing and his results had gone downhill. “I ended up trying to beat Ben rather than trying to sail my best.” He took himself to a psychologist. “I wasn’t thinking the right things. He taught me to refocus on sailing the best you can rather than trying to beat anyone else. He helped get my brain back on track, and I made some steps forwards, focusing on improving my own performance rather than worrying about anyone else.”

    18 Sep 2014 | 5:27 pm
    Could there be any reason to believe that a team that had just finished 52nd in the Star World Championships had any hope of winning a medal at the Olympic Games later in the year? On the face of it that question seems like a no-brainer. How could any team have serious designs on a top three at the Games, let along winning gold? But if you know that the team in question is Iain Percy and Andrew Simpson, and you know anything of what these sailors have achieved, then you might change your view.

There's a fine balance between learning from the best in a new class, without making them the heroes you look up to, and therefore can never beat. Ben says: "I tend to look at the fast people's boats and the way they set them up. But you can't copy everything, you've just got to try to form your own style by taking the best of what other people do and trying a few new things of your own......"

Watch the video at the end of the last post! Since there are no roads to connect most of Southeast Alaska, we boarded the M/V Malaspina to take a trip down the Alaska Marine Highway.  When we came up here, back in March, we made one long ferry-trip from Bellingham to Haines that took three days.

    We left Anchorage on Saturday and drove the 700 miles to Haines in three, slow-paced days. The timing was perfect for the fall foliage and we couldn’t have asked for better weather – that was until we arrived in Southeast Alaska. Since we crossed the border from Canada back into the US and into the Alaska panhandle it has been pretty standard Southeast AK rain. But it is amazingly beautiful nonetheless and still my favorite part of Alaska (Mike favors South-Central.) Just a couple of hours outside of Anchorage is the Matanuska Glacier.Here is a fact I learned in our Milepost:…

    by Craig Leweck, Scuttlebutt Most kids in the USA that have learned to sail, and like it, proceed to compete in youth events, sailing relatively low performance, simple-type boats. This format has proven very popular and can continue through their school years. However, this path for young sailors does not have a natural transition from youth sailing to life sailing (non youth type boats), and does not sufficiently train exceptionally talented sailors. At some point, three realities likely occur: - Sailing is fun, but I am not going to do it beyond my youth years - Sailing is fun, and I would…
