Sailing, around the world

Last December the maxi yacht "Wild Oats XI" won the 2008 Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, sailing 630 nautical miles (1,170 km) in one day, 20 hours and 34 minutes. The Volvo Ocean Race, a 10-leg round-the-world race started in October and will continue until June. The Tall Ships Atlantic Challenge 2009 will start in April, and training sessions are now underway. Sailing as a modern and historic undertaking is alive and well around the world, here are a few photos of sailing events from the past year. (30 photos total)

The Volvo Ocean Race will be coming to Boston at the end of April/beginning of May. Come down to Fan Pier to check it out as it is really a very interesting race.

The PUMA boat is a locally built boat (Bristol, RI) skippered by a local guy - Ken Read (Newport). I have a hard time not supporting it, but I have other ties to a competing boat.

To #8, you might be surprised to learn that the sailors and shore crews that maintain the boats are not, themselves, rich. A race yacht campaign costs a large amount money, but it also employs a large number of people.

Tall ships are just awesome. i saw them for the first time in Boston in 1976 (during all the Bicentennial stuff that year); would love to know what it takes to work / crew on this boats as a full time thing. Now THAT is a job.

The U.S.S. Constitution, while being the oldest commissioned vessel currently afloat, is not an active ship as she does not often sail under her own power, nor does she leave her berth but for a handful of times a year. I believe the last time she sailed under her own power was in '97.

The USS Constitution is the oldest commissioned ship in the US Navy, but it doesn't sail. The Cutter Eagle is a training ship, regularly sailing around the world.

#8 is the Roseway -- she's a beautiful historic schooner which I had the privilege of being aboard for an evening cruise at her winter home in St. Croix in the USVI.

She's not only a beautiful ship, but she's a National Historic Landmark and a floating educational institution which takes public schoolchildren out on day sails where the crew ties the sailing experience to lessons in math, science, english, and social studies.

Yes, the Volvo Ocean Race is coming to Boston for a couple weeks...ETA April 27. There will also be an "in-harbor" race May 5. I plan to watch these amazing boats from my own sailboat when they arrive. Also, you can follow the race on volvooceanrace.com and via Google Earth. Leg 4 begins this Sunday in Shanghai and promises to be one of the most brutal (upwind beat) of the entire race. This is not a sport for the faint of heart.

These pictures are, as always, amazing Alan! For those of us who find the older vessels so beautiful don't forget that during the age of sail the crews' lives were extremely rough, dangerous and often short. Imagine being up tending a topsail on those foot lines without any fall protection gong 'round the Horn. To me it's like looking at all those European cathedrals. They are so amazing, then you remember the people who built them, the working conditions and the pay.

It would be nice if the Globe covered sailing like it covers the Sox, the Bruins and all that stuff. There is a huge amount of competitive sailing between Portland and Newport and some of the most important sailors in the US have achieved professional status in the Charles and Mystic rivers.

It would also be really nice if the captions were accurate. The replica of Argo sure isn't sailing. There are no sails in sight. And the ship going under the Flaubert bridge isn't sailing, either, even if one spells it correctly. It's being towed.

I love those supermaxi shots. I also envy the sailors. I wish I weren't one of those who always get seasick. I have to wear a scopolamine patch whenever I go out on a boat.

Alan - any chance you could consider merging the text blurb's with the photo's? This would give some detailed reference info when saving any of them. For those that didn't like this, they could just crop out the text info.

Post (GRD) great republican depression times, when the capitalist stranglehold on mankind is loosened, we will return to a leisurely and humane pace of life, where the clicking of the paymasters clock is is silenced by the dollars dropping value, and the whoremasters of the military/industrial slavery go broke threatening peace all the way to the bottom. Then shall mankind enjoy his scientific triumphs over nature for his good, and not simply the benefit of a mighty and evil few, and sailing vessels will return, with satellite guidance and LED lighting and vastly improved communications and food preservation methods. This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, an educated intelligent and forward moving time, a time of peace and honesty, a time to put down weapons of mass destruction and take up means of humane population husbandry. This is the age of sustainability as a requirement for a system to exist, and age for environmental responsibility. This is the new age of the sailing vessel!

Reply to Robert Brazile, Ironsides was first decommissioned in 1828. She was returned to service in 1835 or 36 after a major rebuild. She has been revived, restored and rebuilt several times in the last couple centuries, acted as a flagship, school and training ship. In ( i think) 1954, Eisenhower signed into effect an authorization to repair and maintain her to her original appearance, but she could NOT be used for active service - a permanent decommission, but without the mothballing. I was fortunate enough to sail aboard her in 2000.

The barque Eagle, on the other hand is actively commissioned still, and can be pressed into active service as necessary. She is mostly used for training and goodwill these days. One thing that sets her apart from most cadet training is that she sails very closely to her era i.e. as she was sailed in her youth. While on board her, one of my duties was to make new baggywrinkle. Not a lot of call for that much any more, but a skill I maintain today - just in case.

Foto n. 15 should be the training vessel of Marina Italiana "Amerigo Vespucci"

Posted by Luciano January 19, 09 04:44 AM
120.

Regarding the "James Craig"; in caption 2 you refer to her as a clipper when she is actually a barque - ship-rigged rather than square rigged. In caption 27 you describe her as "Tasmanian" which is not really correct. She was originally built in Sunderland, UK. Her only connection with Tasmania is that is where she ended her commercial days as a coal hulk and then was beached for 40 years. She was taken over by the volunteer of the Sydney Heritage fleet who spent over 20 years rebuilding her and she is now based in Sydney.

Beautiful pictures. I greatly appreciated all of them. However, the name of the ship in picture 17 is "Eagle" not Barque Eagle. Barque refers to the classification of the ship. It means:
1. That the ship has 3 masts.
2. The first 2 masts, the foremast the mainmast have "square yards" and therefore "square sails" (spars and sails that lay across the boat).
3. The last mast, the mizzen, has only fore and aft sails (spars and sails that lay in line with the boat).

The potential of wind power is well illustrated by the shots of the sailing ship and the wind turbines on the River Mersey .In both cases the wind is providing clean power ! We should make more use of it ,

If you loved these you will adore the photos here: http://www.amoryross.com One of the US's up and coming marine photographers. I was on the press boat with the individual who shot #26 and if there were words to describe the conditions on the water that day...all would be amazed at the talents of these photographers. Imagine riding a bucking bronko while be sprayed with a fire hose and standing on a surfboard that is balancing on the bronko...and the only thing you are holding is worth more than the boat putting you in the position to capture the winning shot...there is a yacht race going on in Key West all week: http://www.premiere-racing.com More fantastic action sailing photos found there as well....cheers.

#15 "A ship sailes under the Flaubert bridge..." is the Amerigo Vespucci, considered one of the most beautiful ships in the world. School ship of the Italian Navy, launched February 22 1931 in Castellammare di Stabbia, total length is 101 meters, the width of 15.56 meters, is the maximum draft of 7.30 meters , is the sail area of 2800 square meters, a full load displacement of 4100 tons.

Well, almost brings me to tears, all grace under sail, ( and AWESOME speed as shown by the incredible round the world racing boats , both multi and monohull}thru hundreds of years of human history. i never get enough, Need to be on the water more, even if only on my Laser, Rhodes 19, or Herrshoffe H28
By the way, The shot of "the red sailed boat" is indeed the "Roseway" now homeported out of St. Croix. The photo is difently taken in the waters off St. Croix, as that is Green Cay island and Buck Island in the background.

Wonderful pictures and very moving for an old sailor who has been away from the open sea for more than 60 years. It proves that, once in your blood, the sea never leaves it.

The comments are also heartwarming - only one of the last 100 (from NZ) being negative.

Not to nit-pick but I believe the outstanding quality of the presentation deserves a few minor (but, for int-picking searfarers, troubling) corrections in the captions as follows:

In the first photo, the “Tall Ship” described is not a ship but a schooner.

In 3 the “three-masted schooner” is ship-rigged

In 5 the “tall ships” are, from left to right, a brig and a barque

In 8, the “ship” is a schooner

In 12, it’s well that you didn’t classify Tom Perkins’ vessel anything other than “a clipper sailing luxury yacht”. It certainly doesn’t fit any other traditional classification.

In 20, the “tall ship Mercia”, is described as sailing into Brest harbor. To be sailing in, those sailors on the yards must have a lot of wind power because there appears to be nothing else unfurled in the rigging at this point.

Good show and thanks much.

How wonderful to see the Boston Globe include a gallery of sailing photography! These photos are a beautiful and unique selection from a year of amazing racing, record attempts, Tall Ship flotillas and more. Although I work with sailng photography on a daily basis (currently www.rolexmiamiocr.org), I have to say seeing these images one after another -- seemingly unrelated, yet so similar in spirit -- made my day! As one of a handful of folks in the world doing PR in the sailing world, it is incredibly fulfilling to see this kind of attention on sailing and the sea, especially from the Boston Globe. Thank you, thank you Alan Taylor!

Response to 182:
In #5, the two ships, left to right, are a hemaphrodite brig (two-masted, foremast square rigged, aft rigged fore-and-aft) and a true brigantine (two-masted, both square rigged, no main course). A bark would have at least three masts with the mizzen only fore-and-aft rigged. A true brig is all square-rigged with a main course.

Nice photos but I have one gripe. Four photos of Puma, in a page posted by Boston.com and not a single mention that Puma's home port is Boston, the boat was built in Rhode Island, the skipper is also from Rhode Island and the boat, and entire fleet, will be in Boston in early May. Further there will be an in-port race during the Boston stop. This is as home town a team as I've ever had to root for in all of the Whitbread/Volovo races I've followed. The racing has been tight, competitive and Puma is regularly near or at the front.

"James Craig" (#3, #27) at the start of the Sydney-Hobart race is from Sydney. She's 135 years old. She takes passengers out to sea once a fortnight, summer and winter. You're never too old, it's an unforgettable experience. I should know, I'm one of the spectators in the rigging.

I am in awe...how exciting and beautiful..! Accident I got to this page though now I have, it sparked curiosity I never knew I had. Certainly a part of life one would not stumble on unless on the net or on the seas. Thanks for that opportunity..!

Beautiful.
Awesome.
Breathtaking.
Especially the stone slabs of the Corinth Canal, Korinthos.
...so inspiring people are blogging about these old
mind-blowing pics even over a year and a half later.

Fantastic show! Many thanks.
Only those who have felt the power and sounds of a yacht under sail on a windy day will fully understand the magnificence of sailing. The skill, the raw power, and the comeraderie are unique to this sport. It's tough, and hard relentless work, but Wow, sailing is fantastic.
