Sail-World.com : Bulka wins 2014 Contender Pre-Worlds
Bulka wins 2014 Contender Pre-Worlds


'Contender Worlds 2013'    International Contender Class Association

A consistent display by Victorian Mark Bulka taking the 2014 Contender Pre-Worlds on Lake Macquarie, on Australia's East Coast. Bulka who was third in the 2013 Lake Como Contender World titles finished ahead of seven times Contender world champion, Andrea Bonezzi (ITA) and Jonathon Neate (AUS) , the 2010 Contender World champion.

However the leaderboard is not the whole story, with Queenslander Matt Mulder only sailing four of the six race series, with three wins and a second showing he has speed to burn and will be the man to watch in the 2014 Contender World titles when racing starts on Tuesday.

Sail-World Cruising News - local and the World

The power of the tide by Sam Fortescue, Editor Sailing Today
Sam Fortescue experiences a sticky reminder of the influence of the tide. It was the first time he had been sailing in Turkey for about 20 years, and he was returning to his old cruising grounds around Bodrum. In late September, it was decidedly the tail end of the season, and they flew in on the wings of one storm (and out on the vanguard of another). ... [more]  

It’s impossible to recreate the ocean’s dynamic conditions in the laboratory. And the ocean is a tough place to bring in delicate scientific instruments and get them to survive, let along work. That hasn’t deterred Craig Taylor, a biologist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. More than two decades ago, he began working with WHOI engineer Ken Doherty to develop an instrument they called SID. ... [more]  

For Christmas a Shiny new Sail-World.com *Feature by Brendan Maxwell
Santa’s elves started on January 7th 2014 building a set of shiny new Sail-World.com websites and just minutes before Christmas morning in one of Santa’s first touch downs Auckland New Zealand , TetraMedia General Manager Jedda Murphy flicked the switch on the dedicated TetraMeda servers in Frankfurt Germany to take almost all our world-wide audience to the new Sail-World sites. ... [more]  

The spirit of the ARC is the spirit of camaraderie and adventure, which makes every one of the 1,250 ARC sailors a winner, not just those on stage to receive awards. After a 20-hour delay to the scheduled start, caused by strong winds in Gran Canaria, ARC 2014 got off to a flying start for this trade wind classic. ... [more]  

The Atlantic hurricane season will officially end on November 30, and will be remembered as a relatively quiet season as was predicted. Still, the season afforded NOAA scientists with opportunities to produce new forecast products, showcase successful modeling advancements, and conduct research to benefit future forecasts. Improved model, new surge forecast products and research projects debuted. ... [more]  

The second edition of this alternative route to the traditional ARC route saw 50 yachts and over 200 crew enjoy the same great activity programme before and after their ARC crossing, but also an interesting and enjoyable stopover on São Vicente, one of the less visited of the Cape Verde islands. Crews were full of praise for ARC+ route, now an integral part of the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers. ... [more]  

Waves within waves by Leslie G. Baehr
Scientists have a name for this phenomenon—internal waves. By definition, internal waves occur in the deep, well beyond people’s purview. Scientists have generated miniature internal waves in small tanks in the lab, but out in the wild, they’re as elusive as a white horse in a snowstorm. ... [more]  

The Cruising Yacht Club of Australia has received overwhelming support for its Parade of Sail, to be held prior to the Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race on December 26, and staged in honour of the 70th Hobart and the Club’s 70th anniversary. ... [more]  

Over the past 30 years, the Arctic has warmed more than any other region on Earth. As sea ice continues to thin and melt, understanding the rapid changes going on in this sensitive part of the world and its ecosystems becomes even more crucial. The new vehicle, called Nereid Under Ice (NUI), is remotely operated by pilots aboard a surface ship via a lightweight, micro-thin, fiber-optic tether. ... [more]  

Tabor Boy - A century of service by Capt. James E. Geil
The history of Tabor Boy, the 92-foot flagship of coeducational Tabor Academy, in Marion, Massachusetts, is that of a working vessel. Although she was designed and built in 1914 to support the commercial shipping trade, Tabor Boy’s real calling turned out to be teaching young people about life and the sea. ... [more]  

The Gunboat 55 has been crowned Cruising World’s 2015 Domestic Boat of the Year. The publication’s annual competition is judged by a panel of independent judges. This year’s judges, Tim Murphy, Ed Sherman and Mark Schrader, were unanimous in their praise and selection. ... [more]  

In 2013, over 955,000 boats changed hands on the pre-owned boat market. That meant for a nearly a million boat buyers, hiring an accredited marine surveyor to inspect their potential dreamboat was often the first step after finding it. ... [more]  

In a world first study researchers have found a coral-eating fish that disguises its smell to hide from predators. 'For many animals vision is less important than their sense of smell,' says study lead author Dr Rohan Brooker from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies (Coral CoE) at James Cook University. ... [more]  

Writing in the Journal of Animal Ecology the authors set out to answer important and fundamental questions on how life in the ocean will respond to projected changes in the coming decades. Despite evidence of increasing acidification of the world's oceans, questions remain over whether marine species will be able to adapt to these changing conditions. ... [more]  

By studying the colour of seabird guano in the infrared part of the spectrum the researchers from British Antarctic Survey (BAS), University of Cambridge and University of Edinburgh were able to identify and isolate the poo's unique spectral signature from bare rocks and snow. ... [more]  

Sail-World is now live testing the changed website format. If you are using this format for the first time, please scroll to the bottom of the site and check that your region is set for your region and not some other. It can be correctly set up using the drop down boxes. Then go to the top, click refresh, and you should be away. ... [more]  

Oceanographer Bob Pickart will never forget his first cruise aboard Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution’s (WHOI) research vessel Knorr. It was February 1997, and the ship was headed to the fierce Labrador Sea in the dead of winter. Sailing into the teeth of wintry conditions was the whole point of the 47-day research cruise. ... [more]  

Fifty-five years ago, the group of twelve nations who’d been involved in the International Geophysical Year of 1957 signed the Treaty. The Treaty has ensured that Antarctica remains a natural reserve, devoted to peace and science. ... [more]  

Scientists urge protection of world's deltas by Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
Extensive areas of the world’s deltas — which accommodate major cities such as Shanghai, Dhaka and Bangkok — will be drowned in the next century by rising sea levels, according to a Comment piece in this week’s Nature. ... [more]  

The BBC has reported that nine Somali pirates should get thousands of Euros because they were not immediately brought before a French judge, the court ruled. One is to get 9,000 Euros (£7,000) and the others sums of up to 7,000 Euros. The judges faulted France for keeping them in custody for an extra 48 hours. ... [more]  

Yacht lost on Majuro by John Martin
Monday morning I awoke early and watched the sky grow light listening to the quiet morning sounds here in our anchorage off the island of Eneko. At 7:30 the cruiser’s net anchor started off with the usual good morning, and she asked if there was any emergency traffic. ... [more]  

When we taught the intense 12-week Professional Mariner Program at the Chapman School of Seamanship, top priority the first week was to get each student into a mindset where they inspected a boat from stem to stern before casting off and after they tied up. Note the dual inspections. Bookends if you will. Before sailing; after sailing. Every time. ... [more]  

Leopard by Finland crossed the finish line in Rodney Bay Saint Lucia this morning at 01:09:51 UTC (02/12 21:09:51 Local time) smashing the ARC Course Record by 2 days 6 hours 45 minutes and 19 seconds. Sailing across the Atlantic from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria to Rodney Bay, Saint Lucia in a total of 8 days 14 hours, 39 minutes and 51 seconds. ... [more]  

Fort Lauderdale greets Oceans of Hope yacht by Sailing Sclerosis Foundation
Oceans of Hope sailed into Fort Lauderdale this morning at 11:00 a.m. local time to an enthusiastic dockside audience awaiting their arrival. Cheers ensued, horns blared and the crew looked happy to arrive in the tropical landscape of Florida. It has been a long and arduous journey for some, including Christina Lamb Sidell, who joined the Oceans of Hope crew several weeks ago in New Jersey. ... [more]  

As I look back over nearly 40 years of sailing around Mediterranean waters I can't help but reflect on time passing by. 'Isn't it a bit like painting the Forth Bridge?' a friend asked of my pottering around looking at harbours and anchorages. ... [more]  

Try as you might, it just won’t work. Ropes are for pulling, and pulling alone. Similarly, most things on a boat and in a rig have a specific job to do and hence reason for the way they’re designed. Form follows function, after all. So with this adage firmly in mind, let’s see what Sydney Rigging Specialists have been up to and why they stick to this theory, like rust marks on a trusty kite. ... [more]  

2014 has truly been an Odyssey year, as our boats have criss-crossed the Atlantic on epic journeys, starting in January when the Atlantic Odyssey II yachts sailed from La Palma to Grenada, and followed by the summer adventure of the Blue Planet Odyssey yachts up in the High Arctic attempting the transit of the North West Passage. ... [more]  

Sailing within the ARC+ fleet, Alubat Cignale 18 Eleonora 2 crossed the ARC+ finish line at 07:38:46 local time after a fast 2100NM passage from Mindelo in the Cape Verde Islands. The international crew on board were in great spirits having enjoyed their 12 days at sea and are now looking forward to experiencing the delights of the Caribbean. ... [more]  

Every year, thousands of people suffer from CFP, a poisoning syndrome caused by eating toxic reef fish. CFP symptoms are both gastrointestinal and neurological, bringing on bouts of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, muscle aches, and in some cases, the reversal of hot and cold sensations.
