By Nicki Bennett | June 2, 2021 |

If May taught us one thing, it is that sailing is back in a big way. We are beyond thrilled to see so many of you out sailing with smiling faces.

Keeping Up with the Rules
With the ever-evolving nature of government policies and regulations related to COVID, what’s accurate one day can become dangerously inaccurate the next.

Solo Transpacific Race Preview

The long and winding Kuhio Highway that leads to Hanalei Bay on Kauai has nothing on the tacks and jibes it's taken for all concerned to make the 22nd Singlehanded Transpacific Yacht Race a reality.

The State of the Ocean

Pollution, overfishing, and chemical changes threaten the health of the sea, and thus, what we eat and breathe. Hurricanes are stronger, their season longer. We have become numb to seeing waterways covered in trash and pictures of sealife entangled in all manner of plastic waste.

Daniela Moroz — Going, Going, Going Fast!

Radiant and confident with more than an occasional penchant to go fast describes Daniela Moroz from Lafayette, California. She just happens to be one of the fastest on foils in the world; be it against men or women, it really makes no difference.

Max Ebb — Rapture of the Deep

"Rapture of the deep" is defined as "an obsessive desire to be surrounded by possessions of a nautical nature, such as lamps made from running lights and tiny ships' wheels; and a conviction that objects are moving when they are in fact standing still."

The Racing Sheet

The SSS continues their 2021 season with a new Singlehanded North Bay Race and the Singlehanded Farallones. We file reports on the Newport to Ensenada Race, the Moore 24 Nationals in Santa Cruz, SFYC's Elite Keel, the YRA's second Shorthanded Race, and DRYC's Point Dume Race. Box Scores include two women's regattas and more.

World of Charter

This month we hear from Rich Jepsen, formerly of OCSC Sailing and current Vice-President of US Sailing, about his April BVI charter. He shares the strategy of booking, setting up crew, and the many good reasons to plan now to reconnect with the delights of chartering in the British Virgin Islands.
