A reminder from the U.S. Coast Guard to use your VHF radio—not your cellphone—to call for help when you're in distress on the water.

"Two converging wind patterns from the day before had subsided to allow for some fresh breeze as my cameras thrived on the visual feast opening up beneath my feet. Yachts jostled within feet of one another on the starting line, and then out of the traps like a greyhound race went these thoroughbred Maxis. Swapping between cameras at speed, grabbing and holding tightly whilst firing as many quality images as possible, the chopper spinning around each yacht was, as always, exhilarating." -Ingrid Abery on our May Photo of the Month from PalmaVela.

Condolences to family and friends of Andrew "Bart" Simpson and the entire Artemis team. Such a tragedy, a two-time Olympic medalist (gold in 08, and silver in 12) and one of the happier people on the Olympic circuit. Few people seemed to enjoy his job as much as he did. http://bit.ly/15vXbMP
Andrew Simpson tragically died after Artemis Racing capsized its AC72 on Thursday, May 9.

I do too many errors to take part in this type of sailing. I need boats that can tolerate my errors without capsize or break!

“There were some very good offers out there, but at the end of the day, Russell and Larry, I wouldn’t be here without them…” Spithill said in confirming his return to the command of Oracle Team USA. It's on. Bob Grieser pic from AC34.

The famous Italian island of Capri and the beguiling Tyrrhenian Sea provided the host setting for the 2013 Rolex Capri Sailing Week Volcano Race, which came to a close on Friday 24 May following a week of close-fought inshore and offshore racing. Constantly changing and challenging conditions ensured enthralling sailing for the fleet of Maxi yachts. Check out more photos here: http://bit.ly/10xPqSn

Until recently, the multihull sailing experience was completely foreign to most sailors because they spent most of their time in heavy displacement boats. Before we had sportboats and seriously lightweight craft, apparent wind on the runs was always aft of 90 degrees. While we were sailing ProSail 40s, we were also sailing Etchells, J/24s, and IOR boats. All great boats of that era, but boats with spinnaker poles that you pulled aft further and further the windier it got, using the spinnaker as a wind blocker. Look at the landscape now, however. We have mainstreamed foiling Moths, 49ers, Melges 24s, J/70s, Viper 640s, TP52s, and Volvo 70s—all boats that share one important trait with multihulls: They’re fast enough to shift the apparent wind forward, making downwind sailing a far more lively and high-speed experience. In essence, a lot of downwind sailing is now done with bigger and deeper genoas that use the flow of apparent wind the same way a jib does upwind. There’s no more wind blocking, no more spinnaker poles, and no more spinnakers—period. It’s “crank it up and let her rip,” which is how multihulls have been sailed for generations.
