Pirate attack on EU NAVFOR flag ship - suddenly sorry
Des Ryan,
The fact that it occurred at first light must be the excuse for a skiff full of suspected pirates who opened fire and commenced boarding a target ship this week. What a surprise when the 'target' fired back and launched a helicopter. As the light increased they learned why. Rather than a commercial ship which they could have hijacked, it was the flagship of EU NAVFOR itself, the ESPS Patino.... [more]

Royal Langkawi 2012 – new Around the Island record for Jelik
Guy Nowell, Sail-World Asia,
16 kts and grey skies, wind over tide and a downwind start, and surprisingly enough there wasn't a single OCS as the fleet set off around Pulau Dayang Bunting – 28nm for the full distance, although some of the divisions were handed down a shorter 22nm course. Occasionally the sun peered through the clouds, but still nothing like the ‘baking on the grill' conditions that some of us remember from th... [more]

Downwind trapezing on the A Class Cat - The Drum
Sail-World.com,
The new boats don't seem to pay a huge penalty if you trapeze. With the curve boards the faster you go the more they lift so the more the boat unweights. You are sailing faster but because the boat has got slightly less wetted surface area your apparent (wind angle) goes forward and you end up sailing in roughly the same depth as what you do when you are sitting in, or very close to it anyway....
