    What sort of yacht do you need to sail across the Atlantic? There’s no black art, says Elaine Bunting, you just need a bit of preparationNumerically, the most common yachts for an Atlantic crossing are ordinary production cruisers with standard kit, usually with upgrades of safety and power generation equipment. The happy truth is there’s no black art to sailing 3,000 miles downwind; the toughest part can be getting across the Bay of Biscay. So whatever boat you have right now, the chances are that she’ll be fine for an Atlantic crossing with a bit of extra preparation. You don’t have…

    Why do you support Amver? What compels your company to support a legendary search and rescue system? Perhaps its the fact that as mariners you understand the dangers of the sea. Perhaps you subscribe to the bond of seafarers, the unwritten code between those who make their living on the water. Perhaps its company policy. Regardless of your reason, we're glad you continue to support Amver. Help us welcome the latest members of the Amver safety network.STI CONAUGHTVIPHA NAREECLIPPER BRILLIANCEHOEGH TARGETJONES TIDEBW LEOFRIGG VIKINGMSC MADRIDEVER LOGICSTI LAURENHATTASELMA BYM WELLHEADPhoto…

    Seventeen might be a lucky number for someone. We say seventeen is lucky because that is the number of vessels enrolling in Amver in the past week. One of those ships just might rescue someone. We're thankful for all the seafarers that agree to send us their vessel movements in the name of safety at sea.

    28 Apr 2015 | 3:10 am
    When it comes to tuning a complex sailboat like the 505 dinghy, there are many different ways to achieving the same outcome of a fast boat. There is no single correct answer. But there are some broad truths, and some good ways of seeing the wood for the trees. Don't overcomplicate it, says Michael Quirk. Whatever you are trying to do, there are a couple of solid benchmarks to assess whether your boat tune is on the right track....

    H2uh0 - Bonehead Moves on the Water... by Craig

  • Ripping in the Med

    21 May 2015 | 9:38 am
    Cloudy cool week here on the bay.  Memorial Day weekend is upon us.  If you are heading to the water, keep a good lookout as there will be some yahoos out there not paying attention on this busy holiday weekend.  One thing I do when sailing.  I may be on a starboard tack and have the right of way, but if someone is challenging me on say a port tack, I always give them the right of way and assume they do not know the rules of the road.  The number one rule is avoid collisions at all costs...even if you have the rights! 
  • Letters From the Sea

    19 May 2015 | 8:59 am
    I just received a note from a friend who sailed from SF to French Polynesia and back to SF.  Here is the note:Aloha Capt. Craig,Yep made the circle from Mex to Tahiti to Hawaii and back again. I learned a lot - about sailing, about people, about myself. No regrets. It was a great adventure, though I could have picked a better captain. Highlight was definitely diving in the Tumamotus. Fakarava is amazing. When you go plan to spend as much time there as possible, and stock up on fruit and veggies while you're in the Marquesas. One of the best shark dives in the world. And gorgeous fish.

    There is something about these videos that captures the essence of sailing and the exuberance of youth.  It takes me back to my house boating days on Shasta and Oroville in the 80's and 90's.  I wish I could have done something like this but alas the lakes were the closest we came.  But we had a blast and even had folks from across the country join us!  Enjoy the vid and maybe relive a bit of your youth!

  • Amory Ross: Sharing the Volvo Ocean Race

    Amid the new field of Volvo Ocean Race onboard reporters, American Amory Ross is a veteran. As one of only two reporters to do a second run around the world, Amory shares insight of what it takes to share the race… Fundamentally the role within this edition is quite similar as the previous race. The requirements off the boat are near identical, as we still send 7-8 photos, 2-3 minutes of video, and a written story. So that part is the same. Probably the biggest difference is the directive of the race in guiding the story and the acceptance of the onboard reporter amongst the sailors.

Somebody’s going to find a new route to the summit, win the game on a superlative performance or lucky bounce, or find that extra bit of speed around the race. Those are relatively Little Questions. Maybe that’s the appeal of the inaugural Race to Alaska (R2AK), 750 miles from Port Townsend, WA to Ketchikan. It asks Big Questions. There aren’t a whole lot of rules other than make your way to Ketchikan via boat. The boat can’t…

  • Yacht Charter Rates in Euros – Who Wins with Current Exchange Rates?

    latesail
    5 May 2015 | 7:43 am
    Many of you will know that the Euro is, and has been for a while now, trading considerably weaker than we are used to against the UK £. So what does this mean for you? Well on the whole it is good news. Many charter fleets, especially those in the Med, price their yacht charters in Euros, so the converted cost in UK £ is considerably less (approx. 10% lower than the same time last year). Not only does this mean savings on the charter cost, but your day to day expenses whilst on charter will also be significantly reduced as your spending money will go further. How do you see these benefits?

    So, where in the world do you sail in non-tidal waters whilst enjoying some of the freshest lobster around? It has to be the islands of Antigua & Barbuda in the heart of the Caribbean. Antigua is a well known Caribbean destination sitting like a jewel in the Caribbean chain between BVI and the Grenadines; but how well do people really know it?

    We receive countless enquiries from charterers who have been sailing all their life, own a yacht,   or have many years of experience, but they have never qualified, why would they need to? Over the years more and more countries are making it a requirement that the charter skipper has a sailing licence, or sailing certificate. It is neither the broker, nor the charter company that stipulate this, but the local authorities, and as time goes on it is becoming more strictly enforced and regulated. We already share your frustration on this, for those of you with vast sailing experience it can be…
