Rainbow JH2 was transported this week on a barge to Holland Jachtbouw in Zaandam. The 40 meter yacht is now on a cradle inside Holland Jachtbouw where she will be finished. Early 2012 Rainbow will be launched and rigged, and intends to compete at the J class event at Fallmouth and Cowes in June 2012 against her sister ships for the first time. Building progress and latest developments can be checked at

Not a happy day at camp. Here are three of about two dozen sailboats that capsized during a brief, intense thrunderstorm. More than 30 children, part of a two-week sailing camp, were rescued by lifeguards and the Coast Guard. Click here for details.

Pulling off a foiling gybe is at the top of the skill development list when learning to sail the International Moth. Photo by Liz Davies taken at the Gorge last weekend during Moth Madness.

A dark and stormy day. Vento Solare, a J/109, skippered by Paul Milo in a squall at New York Yacht Club Race Week where the breeze built to 35+ in less than 5 min. Photo by Dan Nerney.
