  • A Most Ecellent Sail!

    23 Feb 2015 | 8:58 am
    Headed out for windy day sail on Sunday.  Sy, Luanne, Ceilia, Jason and John joined me for the sail of the year (so far).  The wind had a very northerly component and we started sailing as soon as we hit the end of the harbor.  It was a straight shot for the Gate which is very unusual.  Winds were in the high teens as we headed into the shadows of the Gate.  I called for a lunch stop at Horseshoe Cove.  Beautiful.  We headed out the gate and we could see some amazing detail in the hills and valleys due to the winds.  We made to the end of Golden Gate…

  • Beautiful, With a Chance of Fog

    21 Feb 2015 | 3:16 pm
    The fog has returned to the bay area.  This is what generates all the consistent winds we have for 9 months out of the year.  The winds at Angel Island are gusting to 30 as I type.  Predictions for the day were 5 knots of wind.  We have a very cold ocean and a very warm inland valley to the east.  The warm air mixes with the cold water and creates condensation in the form of of fog.  Think of your cold glass of beer in the summer.  The water on the outside of the glass is the same condensation from the mixture of hot and cold.  Then we have a very warm…

  • Can Oman be beat?

    XS Editor
    5 Mar 2015 | 8:37 am
    Extreme Sailing – Oman is the most successful nation in the nine-year history of the Extreme Sailing Series™ and with less than a week to go before Act 2 of the 2015 global tour in Muscat, 11 – 14 March, the spotlight is inevitably on the home teams The Wave, Muscat and Oman Air. But is there really such a thing as home advantage? History would suggest there is. The Oman Sail teams have set the blueprint on this racecourse in previous years, winning on their home turf over the last three seasons, and with both teams looking to improve on their Act 1 performances, few would bet…

  • Transition time in Barcelona World Race

    5 Mar 2015 | 10:52 am
    (March 5, 2015; Day 65) – After a spell last night and today during which almost all of the Barcelona World Race fleet were in light or moderate winds, in the Atlantic and the Pacific, it looks more like Transition Time is ringing for many. The exception to the calls of ‘It’s Not Normally Like This Here’ was Jorg Riechers and Sébastien Audigane on Renault Captur who were motoring across the Pacific at their statutory, speed limited 15-16kts, riding a fairly typical low pressure.

  • Making the America’s Cup consumable

    Editor
    5 Mar 2015 | 10:07 am
    The 34th America’s Cup saw a lot of change. Multihulls with shoreside spectating was a lot of change. Broadcast tools to make sailing understandable was a lot of change. The over-riding mission was to make the America’s Cup into a consumable product that could be commercially sold. Key to that mission was to quicken the pace. The result would be the ‘made for television’ plan of races having a 40 minute time limit, and for two races fitting into a two hour time slot. While short races were not in the DNA of the America’s Cup, all sports are seeking to adapt with…

    by Dick Enersen In late September 2014, we held a reunion lunch of the still upright members of the crew of Constellation, the 12 Metre yacht that defended the America’s Cup for the New York Yacht Club in 1964. The crew – Steve Van Dyck, Putter Brown, Buddy Bombard, and I – were joined by our wives and girlfriends as well as two supporters from long ago, Davey MacFarlane (who took care of Nereus, our prewar trial horse) and Jimmy Gubelmann, also a regular crew member aboard Nereus, where all of the alternate Constellation crew trained. The venue was a private dining room at…

  • LateSail Regatta Overview

    25 Feb 2015 | 8:42 am
    Why and when should you book with LateSail? You will usually see us promoting the values of booking last minute or taking advantage of early or promotional discounts, but with regattas you typically find little or no availability last minute and discounts are scarce or none. If you are organised enough the best prices are to secure before the next season’s prices are released (ie book in the first half of 2015 for your 2016 charter). You also have the advantage of a wider selection of yachts available and from the company with the best list prices.  So why book with LateSail at all for a…

    Bareboat, Flotilla, Crewed or Cabin Charter… which one is the best for me? At LateSail we pride ourselves in not only getting you the best price, but also finding the best fit for you. That might mean the specifics of the yacht, the charter company or recommending a destination to sail from. Another broader decision to make is whether to sail bareboat, flotilla, crewed or by the cabin. We will often have feedback along the lines of “I’ve always sailed bareboat, I don’t know why I never tried flotilla before… it was fantastic!” So whether you are new to sailing or have been…
  • Hidden Extras, What to Expect on a Bareboat Charter

    We often speak to people who are looking to book their next charter, but keen to have everything included in the price. Usually this stems from a previous experience of appearing to be stung by a series of hidden extras on their arrival at the base. LateSail is regularly booking with a number of different companies worldwide whose extras can vary massively. One of the many advantages of using LateSail’s experience is that we are fully aware of the variations in charging structure, and ensure this information is correctly conveyed from the base, to you, the customer, ensuring there are no…

  • Monohull or Catamaran?

    19 Dec 2014 | 2:57 am
    It is true to say that many a purist wouldn’t be caught dead in a catamaran, however we are finding that just as many people are starting to appreciate the benefits which they present. The question needs to be asked, what kind of sailor are you or what kind of sailors are your crew? Many fair weather sailors, novices, older people and younger people appreciate the stability and space which a catamaran offers. A hard-core monohull sailor once said: “When I sail a cat, it feels like I am driving my living room!”  We see how this description is either appealing or not…
