  • Just Launched Mid-sized Cruisers
    par Lydia Mullan le 20/05/2022 à 3:50

    With so many manufacturers dreaming up bigger production boats, more and more mid-sized cruisers fall on the smaller end of their lines. However, “smaller” does not mean less, and the tricks for optimizing larger models have helped with squeezing more enjoyment into less LOA. As seen in […]

  • Charter: Lake Tahoe
    par Capt. Robert Beringer le 18/05/2022 à 4:38

    A sail on Lake Tahoe has been on my bucket list since the day I first laid eyes on it, and come hell or high water, I decided I was going to someday charter a boat there. North America’s largest and deepest alpine lake, Tahoe sits at 6,225ft above sea level and straddles the state boundaries […]

  • Escape from New York Part 1
    par Emily Greenberg le 17/05/2022 à 3:38

    I was never supposed to take my boat through New York City. After getting sucked backward through the Cape Cod Canal on my way south from Maine, when the speed of the current exceeded the maximum speed of my little electric auxiliary, I wanted nothing to do with Hell Gate and its even faster ...

  • A Watermaker Upgrade
    par Ellen Massey Leonard le 16/05/2022 à 2:17

    As a classic-boat sailor, I’ve long held that simpler is the better. I still think this is true: a simpler boat is cheaper, she has less gadgets to break down and there’s a certain satisfaction in knowing you’re able to handle a bit of discomfort. Thus, for a long time, I sailed […]

  • Sailing Speed Records
    par Lydia Mullan le 13/05/2022 à 2:24

    Although the 1903 defender of the America’s Cup, Reliance, was deemed a “racing freak”—the boat pushed design rules to their limit and couldn’t be beaten, at least in very specific conditions—designer Nat Herreshoff was nonetheless onto something. A century […]

  • Chartering with Non-sailors
    par Zuzana Prochazka le 11/05/2022 à 1:40

    Three tips on managing the madnessFirst-time charterers and first-time sailors aren’t at all the same thing. One group may struggle with beginner chartering issues, like sailing a multihull, catching a mooring or dealing with base personnel. For the other group, though, everything is new. […]

  • A Gulf Stream Crossing at Night
    par Charles R. Merwarth le 10/05/2022 à 2:49

    Even the dome of light glowing above the city behind us had disappeared as if swallowed in a gulp by Noah’s whale. The moon was absent. Not a star twinkled overhead. The night was so dark we could have been floating in a pot of black ink. The only artificial lights to be seen were those of […]

  • Summer Sailing Programs
    par Megan McSweeney le 09/05/2022 à 2:55

    Every year, countless parents find themselves navigating the do’s and don’ts of enrolling their children in a summer learn-to-sail program for the first time. While the prospect of getting your kid on the water is exciting, as a sailing camp program director, there are a lot of things I […]

  • Notice to Mariners: U.S.A! U.S.A! (Well, sorta…)
    par Adam Cort le 06/05/2022 à 4:39

    Some thoughts on a couple of recent developments on the U.S. racing scene that are more than a little at odds. To start with, congratulations to the US Sailing Team (USST) and its outstanding showing at the 53rd French Olympic Week regatta in Hyeres, France, with not one but three podium finishes! […]

  • The 52 Super Series
    par Jorge Aguadé le 04/05/2022 à 3:13

    The 52 Super Series is widely considered one of the top circuits in the world for monohulls, and in this era of rapid change, the TP52—or TransPacific 52—has managed to stay the series’ boat of choice for 10 years. Not only that, but as the class marks its 20th anniversary the […]

  • Knowing When It's Time for a Bigger Boat
    par Annie Dike le 28/04/2022 à 3:27

    “Keep it simple, sailor,” was always our mantra. Aboard our 1985 Niagara 35, Plaintiff’s Rest, my partner, Phillip, and I didn’t have heat, AC, a hot-water heater, generator, watermaker or bow thruster, which meant we also didn’t have to absorb the costs and time […]

  • At the Helm: Night Watch
    par Andy Schell le 26/04/2022 à 3:32

    February 2, 2019. Somewhere near mid-Atlantic, on passage aboard the Swan 48, Isbjørn, from Gran Canaria to Antigua, from my personal logbook: “Something clicked for me in the early morning hours after midnight. I had slept well before Mia woke me up at 0200 to finish her four-hour […]

  • James Wharram, A Lasting Legacy

  • Spring Sailing in Ohio
    par Megan McSweeney le 22/04/2022 à 4:36

  • Notice to Mariners: Get your ZEN50 On
    par Adam Cort le 20/04/2022 à 5:54

    I’m not going to lie to you, when I first laid eyes on the renderings for the ZEN 50 zero-emission solar-electric cruising cat, my thoughts were such that they couldn’t really be published in what I like to think of as our “family” publication. The more I considered it, […]

  • Ryan Finn Poised to Complete 2Oceans1Rock Voyage
    par Lydia Mullan le 19/04/2022 à 5:47

  • Cruising in an Open 60 Racer
    par Joanna Hutchinson le 11/04/2022 à 5:23

    An ex-Vendée Globe racer is an unusual choice as a world cruiser, so why was it ours? Although we already both owned a pair of production boats, my partner, Timo, and I were searching for something to spice up our cruising life. We toyed with the idea of a classic schooner, but weren’t […]

  • Three 30ft Range Performance-oriented Designed Boats
    par Lydia Mullan le 08/04/2022 à 2:30

    par David Popken le 05/04/2022 à 12:48

    For quite some time, I had contemplated an expansion of the house battery bank aboard our 1987 Sabre 38MKI, Orion.

  • Charter: The Right Crew
    par Zuzana Prochazka le 23/03/2022 à 2:14

    I was recently asked to run a charter for friends. As non-sailors, they didn’t know what to expect or who else to invite. I suggested bareboat chartering is living with people in close quarters, sometimes in stressful situations due to weather and schedules, and that they should select the […]

    I walked up to the bathroom and the couple was just getting out of their boat. The man appeared to be in surprisingly good shape.

      Q: In one of your recent Ask Sail responses, you wrote about loose-footed mainsails. I have an S2 7.9 that has a rope-footed main. Since I’m just cruising and not racing, could I just leave the rope out of the track and sail it as though it were loose-footed, or am I asking for […]
