Progess on the J/111 continues, with the first hull now molding and the deck plug (above) complete. The project is on track for sailing in June. Interest continues to grow, with two dozen orders from Europe, New Zealand, America and China.

The problem with trimarans is that there are three times as many bows to keep track of than a monohull. Here this Weta lost track of one of them. Photo by Sergei Zavarin.

Bruce Stone saw the irony for a race committee boat - 'Perfecto' - sporting Toyota as a sponsor - supporting the Copa Mexico J/24 regatta in Riviera Nayarit.

Bonnier Corp.’s Sailing World will sport a new look with its April 2010 issue, which hit newsstands this week. The redesign was crafted to better match the technical and energetic appearance of the sport today while preserving the essential content the magazine’s readers have enjoyed for nearly 50 years.

There are a couple things you can count on at St Francis Yacht Club in San Francisco. One is that a strong tide is either going out to the ocean or into the bay. The other is that an onshore wind will be nuking past the club during the summer. Here we see the RC boat lined up with the ebb tide in what appears to be a cross bay breeze. Photo by Erik Simonson.

Two things that don't go together are snow and sailing. Here we see the remnants of winter getting cleared from the docks and quays around Dennis Conner's North Cove in Lower Manhattan, NY.

Here is an oldie but goodie from the SoCal yacthing scene. Can you name these gentlemen? Click here to post answer in Facebook.
