Marina owners are now trying to shift more responsibility to slip holders.  In some of the cases, it can void certain areas of your boat owner’s insurance, and in others, it can leave gaps that make you responsible.

  • How to determine if you are on a collision course

    26 Aug 2015 | 9:35 am
    When I first started sailing the bay, I was very panicked that I was going to hit every boat in my vicinity.  Then a friend told me about the Nichol's Effect.  This is a law that has saved me many times.  Let's say you are sailing on a port tack and donnot have the right of way over a boat heading across your bow 100 yards away.  Do you need to tack to avoid him?  Not if you use this handy technique.  If there is land behind the boat, use that as your gauge.  Look at the boat and the land behind it.  If the land is moving, you are not on a collision…

    We headed out shortly after 11 for the best sail of the year!  Arnie, Mike, Ron, Sean, Steve and Stacey were aboard for the day sail.  We hit the last channel marker and there was no wind.  We motored for a mile or so and there is a wind line ahead.  The sails are raised and off we go in about 10 knots of wind.  It quickly builds and we reduce sail by furling the jib a bit.  That's better.  We have two options:  Sail to Angel Island for some picnicing or sail hard and head out the Gate towards the ocean.  We opt for the later and begin our journey…

    Detroit, MI (August 28, 2015) – At just past the half-way point in the first stage of the event, Australian Sam Gilmour and his Neptune Racing team remains in the lead in the 2015 edition of the Detroit Cup, hosted by Bayview YC. Gilmour suffered his only loss thus far to local-based Ryan Seago in today’s completion of Round Robin 1, and with another point earned in the first flight of Round Robin 2 has amassed a total of 9 points. “We have been sailing well as a team, and at times got a little lucky,” admitted Gilmour.

    Trapani, Italy (August 28, 2015) – A high pressure system hung over Sicily for the start of the third day of racing at the 2015 Melges 32 World Championship. Another weak northeast gradient lingered producing a 6-8 knot northerly wind, with the breeze dipping below class minimums on occasion. PRO Anderson Reggio exercised patience, eventually firing off two quality races. The starting sequence for Race Five witnessed several general recalls and a postponement due to lack of wind. The first start eventually got underway with a Z-flag in effect. It was a tough start for some as several…

    Rome, Italy (August 28, 2015) – Day two of the Bullitt GC32 Racing Tour’s Trofeo di Roma will be one that organizers, Italian promoters and sailors alike will be pleased to put behind them. Despite occasionally threatening to do so, the wind never increased above 3 knots. As a result, there was a long wait for the breeze to come good (which it never quite did) first ashore and then with the GC32s out on moorings off Civitavecchia’s beach. “Today there was a big fight between the gradient and the sea breeze,” explained Principal Race Office, Anne Mallédant. “It was very tough.

With some of the most famously crystal-clear waters in the whole of the Mediterranean region, gentle sailing and warm winds, and literally hundreds of islands hugging the Croatian coastline, the Adriatic Sea represents one of the best areas for bareboat chartering in all of Europe. Many of those islands off the Croatian coast are wooded and protected as national parkland; some are barren, rocky…

    A main port for chartered yachts, the mountainous island of Lefkas (or Lefkadas) is home to some of Greece’s finest beaches (principally along its west coast), splendid forests, and much dramatic scenery. Speculated to have been Homer’s Ithaca (like various other locations, as a matter of fact), Lefkas lies in the Ionian Sea off the Playia Peninsula in Acarnania, with a causeway connecting it to the mainland. Despite its accessibility and popularity – various resorts line its east coast, where the vast majority of its best anchorages are to be found – Lefkas retains many of its…

    The British Virgin Islands are well known sailing grounds; one of the jewels of the Caribbean. Each of the islands in this group offers its own unique natural wonders and things to see. Today’s spotlight is on Virgin Gorda. When you approach the island by boat it is easy to see the form of a ‘plump virgin’ lying on her back. The third largest of the BVI, Virgin Gorda features everything from Spanish architecture to volcanic rock formations. The landscape here is different from Tortola and other islands, with mountainous, dry landscapes dotted with cacti, giving way to coasts lined with…

    Breakfast on-board Cooking may not be the first thing on your mind as you prepare for your fun and relaxing charter holiday. However, cooking on a boat is something worth giving some thought to before you depart, so there are no last minute meal panics once you board your boat. Cooking on-board is definitely different than cooking in your home kitchen, so it’s best to keep some pointers in mind to make your meals on board enjoyable and stress free. Cooking wise, you can think of your charter as somewhat of a camping trip. Space, fuel, and refrigeration are limited, so it is wise to plan…

    20th August Slightly worrying news greeted us first thing, as we found when paying that the harbour master had been rushed to hospital overnight with heart problems. Later in the morning, Andy took a turn wakeboarding (or “scurfing” as it is apparently known) and we headed to Lavøya og Selen. It was an interesting mooring. Alex and Andy were sent out rowing to put climbing wedges in to attach mooring lines. This then led to attempts at slack-lining by Andy, which resulted in the mooring suddenly becoming somewhat less secure. After this mishap, Andy went for another row in the dinghy and…

We slipped from Bergen around 15:30, after Trevor had indulged his craving for McDonald’s. On the way out, a Royal Norwegian Navy submarine was heading back in, and we dipped the ensign in salute with no response. After a leisurely meander down to Smivågen, we moored up and scran was put on – in the form of a lovely fish curry. After dinner entertainment consisted of ‘Kingsman: The…

The island was used by the Norwegian resistance in World War II. Although resistance was coordinated and based in major cities such as Bergen, Oslo and Trondheim – sheltered ocean harbors such as Hestnesevåg were used as a respite for those carrying out attacks on German ships. Their acts of sabotage were vital in allowing Allied ships to transport munitions to northern Russia from 1940 until the end of the War. We moored up…

    We’ve had a lovely day on-board FPB 64 GREY WOLF – filled with wall to wall sunshine. We started with a bit of shopping, and Trevor got his hair cut. Then we set sail for the lovely island of Silda, which has no cars and a charming small port. It was so warm that we decided to have a BBQ, then we all took some time to enjoy the setting sun. The crew and guests enjoyed some nicely chilled white wine – while Alex caught a fish. It was a peaceful night, with no wind, but a bit of rain. — Peter Watson The post FPB 64 GREY WOLF in sunny Silda appeared first on FPB 64 Grey Wolf.

On the advice of several people, we booked Nino to drive us in his Camry the short 30 mile distance. We had several options for getting there: guagua (bus), rent a car, rent a motorcycle, or get a motoconcho (motorcycle taxi), but it was much easier with Nino since he knows his way around the city and could translate things for us if needed.We headed out in the morning and our first stop was the Brugal rum factory.

As I stand behind the wheel, I am rubbing my eyes and trying to get my bearings straight after a few fitful hours of rest. I look around in the dark and see stars, a sickle shaped moon, dark water all around me, and distant lights on land. It’s quiet except for the sound of the waves slapping the boat and the hiss of foam forming in our wake. There is also this earthy smell of smoke and trees carried from land by the wind. All of these sensations create a unique experience for…

Before we could receive the new shrouds, we had to send in the fittings off the old ones to the company making the shrouds. This entailed removing the rods, cutting off the fittings, motoring through the mangroves to land the dinghy near UPS, and getting picked up by Commissioner Gordon and Inspector Gadget.

Yesterday we spent my 33rd birthday soaking up the sun at Taylors Bay followed by a pizza and movie back on the boat. Being out here on the water every day I sometimes take the view and surroundings for granted, but yesterday I was reminded of how incredibly lucky we are to be on this journey and to be able to spend…
