Goodison takes his golden moth

Goodison takes his golden moth

Paul Goodison said he wanted a gold moth, and the 2008 Olympic Gold Medallist in the Laser kept his cool today to do just that, despite young gun Rashley, speedster Greenhalgh (who won the only race today) and stalwart Babbage doing all they could on the race track. The final points were Goodison (22), Rashley […]

Paul Goodison (20 points), Chris Rashley (22 points), Rob Greenhalgh (25 points) and Scott Babbage (30 points) could all win the Moth Worlds tomorrow with three races yet to be sailed. Greenhalgh sailed exceptionally well today to take a 1, 2, 1 with Goodison taking the other heat win. It’s all on for tomorrow, with […]

Moth Worlds 2016 – Hayama Japan – Day 3!

Wow. What a day of racing here in Hayama for day 3 of the Moth Worlds! Goodison was boat of the day with a 1, 1, 3 moving into the lead over Chris Rashley. All is still to play for, with a lay day tomorrow and lighter winds forecast for Saturday and Sunday. Once a […]


Moth Worlds 2016 – Hayama Japan – Day 2!

I made it for race 4 of the Moth Worlds in Japan thanks to an awesome bunch of sailors from Keio University! Some tricky racing on day 2, with GBR sailors taking three from three race wins. I caught up with Rashley (current leader) on why he thinks the GBR sailors have been dominating so […]

IMOCA 60 adventures – Alex Thomson of Hugo Boss and on board “No Way Back”

A quick catch up with Alex Thomson before he docked off from the Newport Shipyard to head to New York in preparation for the Ocean Masters race to Vendee on 29 May. While the offshore race from Newport to New York was cancelled, I still got a sail on the foiling IMOCA “No Way Back” […]

Live from 100ft – up a mast!

The IMOCA 60 fleet are currently gathering at the Newport Shipyard to prepare themselves for the New York to Vendee race on 29 May. I took the opportunity of being in Newport to head up the rig of the Canadian Ocean Racing team’s IMOCA 60 “Oh Canada” yesterday. It was a great view of the […]

Getting ready for my IMOCA Ocean Masters Offshore with Spinlock

I dropped into Spinlock USA yesterday to say hello, and was lucky enough to be given a safety vest, Lume-On technology, two bags that hook onto the vest, a tether and an AIS MOB-1 unit to use on my offshore on Saturday from Newport to New York with the IMOCA Ocean Masters fleet! Thank you […]

“One of the craziest days of yachting… in my career” – Ashby

If you predicted what would happen in today’s Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series racing in New York you are either the best storyteller around, or exceptionally intuitive. One for the memory banks for sure! With the bad luck of getting stuck on the pin at the start of the final race, knifing the mark […]


Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series New York – Day 1

Day 1 at the Louis Vuitton America’s Cup World Series in New York was exceptionally tough on competitors, organisers and the spectators who were let down by a fading sea breeze which just wasn’t strong enough to battle the fast-flowing Hudson River. In the first start of the day, the whole fleet was over the […]


Checking in with the kids of the America’s Cup Endeavour Program

Today the Endeavour Program that aims to take sailing to communities involved with the America’s Cup, as first launched in Bermuda, was also introduced to New York. Tucker Thompson and Russell Coutts welcomed the kids, with the Auld Mug in attendance, and a sailor from each team met with the young sailors before they headed […]
