With 10 events over seven months, the inaugural Gulf Stream Series was a test of endurance. So it's fitting it was decided by the Storm Trysail Club's Block Island Race.

The True Fabric Of Innovation

PHOTO 6 Once you reach target speed, you can re-trim the mainsheet to match the windspeed and conditions. The boat will want to heel more during the speed build so it's important for the crew to max hike during the speed build.

The speed build and final trim should not take long, and the sooner the trimmer gets his weight to weather the sooner you'll get to...

Consistency Is Made Before the Start The most expeditious way to prepare as a team and to attain the consistency that is so often spoken of by top teams is to develop a pre-race routine and apply it to every race. Each team's routine will be different, but the goal is to make it a habit once you've done that you're on your way to better, more consistent results. Much of a pre-race routine involves the essential basics, but trust me, from many years of instructing and coaching I can tell you...

The 2006 Bermuda Race wasn't easy for anyone. A tricky Gulf Stream kept navigators on edge, and light winds taxed concentration levels from the start to the finish. But this only made finishing that much sweeter. Like a harried innkeeper after a long summer weekend, a strong ebb tide hurried the 2006 Bermuda Race fleet out of town. You've overstayed your welcome, it seemed to say. Now shoo. For more than a few boats, this encouragement was too much to handle. Not even a reminder from an...

Inside the Mind of the Irrational Racer Example No. 1 I think we've got him. We are to the left of the rhumb line and our opponent, who had been a boat length ahead at the leeward mark, is approaching on starboard. He recognizes that we have gained, that he cannot cross us, that we are closer to the port layline than he is, and that the wind has shifted slightly to the left. Tacking is the smart thing to do for many reasons He wants to dig back in toward the rhumb line when he is already to its...

For the moment though, plans of a winter in the Rockies chasing fresh tracks are on indefinite hold. For starters, there's his...

When the Beneteau 36.7 came on the scene, Ploch, 52, a sailmaker for 30 years, got one for the family and soon emerged as the guy to beat in the Northeast. When it came to lining up an expert for our keelboat boathandling shoot in the 36.7, Ploch was the go-to guy. Outtakes aside, he and his pickup crew made it look easy. Tacking is tacking, he says, but doing it well is a matter of finessing and getting the right organization on the boat. Ploch, who owns Doyle Ploch Sails, with lofts in City...

The perfect tack is all in the preparation and the coordination of the crew. It's relatively simple with dinghies, but when you get to keelboats, the more bodies you have moving across the boat, the more you need to syncronize everyone's movement with the sail trim and turn. one important part of the preparation is having marks on your jib tracks and your traveler, as well as on your sheets. These marks allow you to trim consistently with every tack. Another part of the preparation is having...
