Sailing Movie, All is Lost, The Story (video)


All is Lost: "The Story": "All is Lost: "The Story""

Sailing, Sailing | Lisa K. Friedman: " . . . Basically what you need to know is this: wind is important. You need to know where it's coming from at all times. That helps make the boat go forward. Also, for human comforts, you should sit on the windward (windy) side of the boat, also called opposite the sail, which means you're farthest away from the water when the boat heels. Heeling means the boat is, essentially, trying to tip over. Just before it tips, you are heeling . . ."

The broken ocean -- we are in big trouble --
The ocean is broken | Newcastle Herald: "BACK in Newcastle, Ivan Macfadyen is still coming to terms with the shock and horror of the voyage. "The ocean is broken," he said, shaking his head in stunned disbelief. Recognising the problem is vast, and that no organisations or governments appear to have a particular interest in doing anything about it, Macfadyen is looking for ideas. He plans to lobby government ministers, hoping they might help. More immediately, he will approach the organisers of Australia's major ocean races, trying to enlist yachties into an international scheme that uses volunteer yachtsmen to monitor debris and marine life. Macfadyen signed up to this scheme while he was in the US, responding to an approach by US academics who asked yachties to fill in daily survey forms and collect samples for radiation testing - a significant concern in the wake of the tsunami and consequent nuclear power station failure in Japan."

While the Extreme Racing Series was entertaining the crowds at the 2011 Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week, a supertanker hit a yacht which was then dismasted as its spinnaker sail was snagged by the ship's anchor. The Marine Knutsen supertanker was being guided by a pilot boat into Southampton docks and was making its presence known by repeatedly sounding its horn. But one sailboat failed to give way and was hit, having its mast and rigging ripped off when one of its sails got caught in the supertanker's anchor. The yacht was quickly attended by several vessels offering assistance. . . . The incident was captured by Tim Addison for COWES.co.uk

Download Safety Equipment Requirements Approved by US Sailing Board of Directors

Proposed U.S. Safety Equipment Requirements Approved by US Sailing Board of Directors -  DOWNLOAD the new requirements. US Sailing’s Safety at Sea Committee has conducted an overhaul of ISAF’s Offshore Special Regulations (OSR), which describes the gear required to be used on sailboats when racing in most local and offshore races in the U.S. The U.S. Safety Equipment Requirements (USSER) document is intended to be used by race organizers, owners and boat inspectors. The proposed updates were approved by US Sailing’s Board of Directors last weekend at the organization’s Annual Meeting in Captiva, Fla. on Saturday, October 19. . . . The USSERs will be implemented by the 2014 Newport Bermuda Race, a preeminent offshore race. A US Sailing Safety at Sea Seminar will take place March 15-16, 2014 in Newport, R.I. The seminar will provide details on the new requirements to prospective racers.

The key differences between the US Safety Equipment Requirements (USSER) and the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) OSRs are as follows:
1. The requirements are easier for yacht owners and pre-race inspectors to understand.
2. The requirements are self-contained and do not refer to external documents.
3. The number of race categories has been reduced from seven to three: Nearshore, Coastal, and Ocean. Race organizers can then add or delete gear requirements based on the nature of their individual races.
4. The requirements are more specific about certain pieces of gear that lacked definition in the OSRs.
5. The OSRs contained both recommendations and requirements which proved confusing to users, and which increased the size of the document. The recommendations have been removed from the new version.
6. The requirements are far more compact, and can easily be included in their entirety in a Notice of Race or on a yacht club website.
