Extreme Sailing Event in San Diego, Oct. 19 – 22

Posted by on Oct 20, 2017 in Boating News | 0 comments

Note: Due to this event, there will be significant traffic delays to get onto Harbor Island.

Act 7, San Diego, USA

19 October – 22 October 2017

With the racing taking place just five metres from the shore of Harbor Island, the man-made peninsula located close to Downtown San Diego, the Series looks set to make a show-stopping return to the Americas for the penultimate Act. Enjoying a very temperate climate, the Californian city of San Diego sees consistent breezes, making it a popular sailing spot for California and the rest of the west coast.

Friday 20 October will be Military Appreciation Day, sponsored by the SEAL Family Foundation. Members of the armed forces are offered free admission for themselves and a guest to the VIP Foiling Club with a valid military ID.

Saturday 21 October is Family Day, sponsored by Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego.

July 5th, 2017

As has become our custom, we motored out of our anchorage pretty early, departing Kumealon and headed northbound for a long day, partially crossing Dixon Entrance while the weather was expected to be calm.   It started out cool and cloudy in the morning, clearing up by the end of the day, a common theme lately.

Once at Dundas Island, we slowed down and did a small amount of fruitless fishing outside Brundige Inlet before we entered the inlet for the night. Entering Brundige we snaked through a tight passage to find the other boats anchored in a very pretty and calm bay with a shallow mud bottom—seemingly perfect. Unfortunately, several crews found that the whole place is infested with biting flies. Several crew were attacked on land when they took their dogs and a few of them had swollen ankles, hands, fingers, and/or eyes as a result. Devon barely made it back into the closed cockpit to spare herself after dropping the anchor. We kept the cockpit enclosed completely and stayed on the boat the rest of the night. Devon played piano in the cockpit after dinner and we went to bed, preparing for the LONG motoring day to Ketchikan the next day. The fleet joke for Brundige was that the reason no one saw any signs of animals on shore was because the bugs ate them all. I realize now that I don’t have even a single photo of Brundige. Oh well.

s/v Mobert’s verdict on Brundige Bay: Beautiful, but not worth the bugs.

Located just a stones throw from the Miami mainland, sits tiny Brickell Key, home to the luxurious Mandarin Oriental Hotel where, with the Miami skyline as her backdrop, the Jeanneau 51 made her official debut.
“It’s not everyday we have the opportunity to introduce such a grand yacht as the new Jeanneau 51,” said Nick Harvey, President of Jeanneau America, “and even more rare that we do so in such an elegant venue as the Mandarin Oriental in downtown Miami.” Continue reading “A Grand Yacht Makes a Grand Entrance” »

Power & Motor Yacht Magazine: Leader of the Pack, Jeanneau Leader 40

Satisfaction. That’s what I expect every time I get behind the helm of a
yacht with a Michael Peters pedigree, and the Jeanneau Leader 40 met
my expectations emphatically. In addition to sparkling performance
and well-balanced handling, this contemporary express cruiser blends
the talents of Jeanneau’s design staff and Garroni Design to create a
yacht that’s equally well thought out for day-tripping, overnighting, or
longer stints of coastal cruising. Continue reading “Power & Motor Yacht Magazine: Leader of the Pack, Jeanneau Leader 40” »
