The boat you see in the photos is Gino Motori, 12 meter open boat from Croatia. Last weekend he sailed on a 100 miles offshore race from Vodice around rock Jabuka in the middle of the Adriatic and back. Start was supposed to be 22.00 but it was delayed due to strong North Easterly winds to 6.00 Saturday morning. Gino rounded rock Jabuka first, followed by AA (IMX 45) and Duh Ultre (open 40). Few hundred meters after Jabuka, going upwind in 20 knots his keel fell off. Crew ( 9 of them) was saved by AA (skipper Darko Prizmic) and all of them are ok.  www.sailinganarchy.com

John Ilett in Perth Australien hat ein Unterwasserflügelsystem erfunden, mit dessen Hilfe Segelboote aus dem Wasser abheben. Das Prinzip ist einfach: Anstelle des Schwerts und des Steuerruders Flügel, die mit Klappen am Ende der Tragflächen, wie bei den Flugzeugen, gesteuert werden. [...]
Böbbi Schiess und Pit Müller vom Segel Club Cham haben ihre Zweimann-Trapezjolle ‚i14’ als weltweit eines der ersten Doppeltrapezboote damit ausgerüstet.

With Malice?
This is a PC that belongs to a prominent lawyer who is often involved in the thick of intense legal sailing issues. As you can see, the boat is floating a bit low - sunk at the dock in fact by someone who stuffed a hose down below and turned it on. That is a scumbag move of the lowest order. ......

There are some things you just don't fuck with,
and a guy's boat is one of them!

Mast, Man
This one takes a bit of looking, but the story has it this is a 50' yacht that shall remain nameless having a worse than bad day. The incident occurred before a Friday afternoon rum race in Auckland New Zealand. The yacht tried to sail under the harbour bridge and misjudged the height of the mast and ended up stuck between the bridge supports. Oops.

Flemming was in the mast in 5-6 min. Then the boat start to tick-tack. There was nothing to do - problem with the spinaker.

It is the 144' Mari Cha running into the back end of the VOR 60 Venom at Antigua Sailing Week. That the Big Rig Mari Cha got in some trouble on a crowded start line is no surprise (You try steering it), the remarkable part is how little damage there was to Venom. Picture uncredited.
