Welp. Time to start boat shopping for something that can make it to Bermuda I guess.

anything in the 30-40 foot range should do it. But you'd better start your trip now.... unless you can afford a cat in that size range.

If winter weather or the Holidays have you feeling down, watch this and remember:

Sailing gives me a woodie smirk

That turn at tape time 1:35:50 is the coolest thing ever!

Now think of the upcoming foiling AC45 fleet race starts. I can hardly wait!

Iain Murray appointed as Regatta Director for 2017 America’s Cup

"Murray says he sees his appointment to a second term as Regatta Director as an opportunity to advance the America’s Cup forward beyond what was achieved last time.

“Leading into the last America’s Cup, there were so many major changes and collectively we learned so much about how to design, build and race these foiling multihulls,” Murray said. “Now we have the chance to fine-tune and make adjustments to make it even better."

Tom Slingsby talks Extremes, Sydney-Hobart and Moth Worlds

"Tom Slingsby is obviously one of the best sailors in the world. He is one of only nine men to have won an Olympic gold medal and the America's Cup and he has seven world championship golds in Laser and one in Etchells."

Tax, TV and timings – why the Americas Cup 2017 is to take place in Bermuda

A couple of notes: The article was written before the Regatta Director Ian Murray was named.

One of the rumored late entry challengers is China, but no official word yet.

It appears that Jimmy is not #1 at everything he does. smile

Jimmy Spithill named fourth worst "sporting villain"

Top sporting villains of 2014

"I flew into Auckland not long after the Cup and I was convinced that the customs guy wasn't going to let me through," Spithill said earlier this year. I walked up to the window and I got about 20 feet away and he goes 'turn around, you're not coming in".

Oracle's move to Bermuda

"ORACLE TEAM USA has a final training session scheduled in San Francisco next month before moving its operations to Bermuda

Our plan at ORACLE TEAM USA is to be sailing out on the Great Sound at the beginning of May. It’s important for us to hit that deadline, so we’re working to put a plan in place to achieve that."

how soon they forget
City of Venice hosts the ACWS 2012

or maybe Venice is still a city-state and not part of Italy.

The article says it's for the 2015-2016 season.
The ACWS was in Italy 3 times during the last go-round.
Naples held it twice. The first time, April 2012 it was quite rough. Nate O made his AC debut, T Hutch flipped on a bear away, and boats were sometimes going into irons during a tack.
i thought it was entertaining video if you use the slider to speed through the filler ...
