Helen Island, Palau -a beautiful and unique place By Hanny Rivera - Cohen's Lab, , 11:07 AM Monday 18 Aug 2014 - Sail-World Cruising Int GMT
The island is inhabited only by three park rangers who patrol the area against illegal fishing and poaching and monitor the reefs and protect wildlife. For instance, they gather new turtle hatchling and allow them to grow up under protection before re-releasing them into the wild due to otherwise high levels of mortality and dwindling turtle populations. ...

Principal Race Officer Peter ‘Luigi’ Reggio explained: 'The wind was over our normal limit of 26-28 knots at 2-3m, so at the top of the rigs it would have been 28-30. We were anticipating it dying down, but unfortunately the sea state wouldn’t die with it. So ultimately it was down to the sea state.' ... [more]

From Penguins to Polar Bears By Cherie Winner, , 7:21 AM Monday 18 Aug 2014 - GMT
But the effects of climate change may be greatest in Earth’s Polar Regions. In Antarctica and the Arctic, thinner ice is covering less area for a shorter time each year, and that ice loss threatens organisms whose lifestyles depend on it, ranging from algae at the bottom of the food chain to polar bears at the top. Conservation efforts for polar species, however, are especially challenging. ... [more]

2014 Chicago Grand Slam - Canfield wins By Chicago Match Race Center, , 2:22 AM Monday 18 Aug 2014 - Sail-World USA GMT
The cold, foggy weather may have dampened the spirits of the thousands of Chicagoans arrayed on shore for the Air and Water Show, but the action could not have been hotter for the final day of racing at the Chicago Grand Slam. The morning fog shut down visibility in the race area enough so that race managers postponed for about one hour until the conditions cleared enough to set up the course ... [more]

Audi Hamilton Island Race Week; Crosbie Lorimer Day 1 Images By Crosbie Lorimer, Hamilton Island , 10:33 PM Sunday 17 Aug 2014 - Sail-World AUS GMT
Some of the heavy air specialists must be wondering whether it's time to re-train for Audi Hamilton Island Race Week after Day 1 of racing in 2014 started much as it signed off in 2013, with very light airs for the entire Lindeman Island race. Not that such conditions in any way worried most of the crews who, despite a shortened course at Lindeman Island for many of them, returned to the dock ... [more]

Fisher's View: Hamilton Island Race Week - Day 1 - Stayin' Alive By Bob Fisher, , 8:05 PM Sunday 17 Aug 2014 - Sail-World NZ GMT
Audi Hamilton Island Race Week began in a long-time expected fashion with a light (even perhaps ultra-light) south-easterly breeze for the Round Lindeman Island Race.

Cornell turns back from the North West Passage By Jimmy Cornell, , 2:15 PM Sunday 17 Aug 2014 - Sail-World Cruising Int GMT
Our stop at Beechey Island was tinged with sadness, not only because of the tragic events of all those years ago, but also by the decision to abandon our attempt to transit the Northwest Passage this summer. With the ice situation showing little improvement, even if a late transit may become possible, we could face the prospect of being unable to reach the Pacific before the seas started to ice up ...
