AC - World Series starts this spring!

As you know, the AC has four teams for the 36th iteration of the Cup (NZ, UK and 2 USA teams).  It will take place in NZ in January and Feb. 2021.  Prior to the Cup, the World Series is shaking things up in different locations to promote the next go-round.

2020 ACWS Schedule:
April 23-26 – Cagliari, Italy
June 4-7 – Portsmouth, England
December 17-20 – Auckland, New Zealand

The practice boats are almost 40 feet (12 meters).  The actual AC boats will be 75 feet and can hit 35-40 knots.  Take a look at the weird and wonderful.  Go to the 13 min. mark for the AC boats.

Top Videos of Decade - Outside

I really enjoyed the paraglider as we have featured him on these pages several times.  I always wanted to paraglide...but never did.  Sailing is closer to the ground!

Cool Pics

 Quick sail with John on Road Trip and some 15-knot breezes with a passing front.  Back for a nap and dinner at Paradiso with the family.

That last pic is kinda interesting.  Anybody figure it out?

Kona's favorite moment!

Kona sails with me whenever I go out.  I figure he has been on 800 sails or so.  When I put the kayak in the water, he gets very excited in anticipation for a swim to the beach.  This picture captures the moment perfectly.  Thanks for all the great times Kona!!!
