The Atlantic Cup presented by 11th Hour Racing started its third and final leg racing today with its Inshore Series in Narragansett Bay. Heading into today #54 -- Dragon was tied for first with #106 -- Gryphon Solo 2. #54 Dragon was leading the first race of the day en route to the first mark when they hit a rock just off Jamestown. Emma Creighton, their bowman, was launched into the water, but was quickly retrieved. The team withdrew from the race and motored back to the Newport Shipyard to assess the damage. Upon pulling the boat out of the water they discovered major damage to the keel box and have withdrawn from the remainder of the inshore series.
Finn European Championship 2014
Sailed in La Rochelle, France, in May 2014, in winds of over 20 knots, this was filmed using stern cameras on each Finn. Giles Scott had already won the championship but went on the lead round the medal race for a seventh race win that week. Vasilij Zbogar did just enough to win the silver while Ed Wright (whose camera failed to work) took the bronze.

Beachmaster. The king hippopotamus. He runs the beach. The other hippos can't even go to sleep until Beachmaster does first. Now and then a younger hippo will challenge Beachmaster to a fight. If the challenger wins he becomes the new Beachmaster. However Beachmaster always wins. After victory Beachmaster will fornicate with a woman of his choosing. His favorite pastime is eating sausages from the sausage tree, which blossoms once a year. He is also very protective of his fellow hippos. When a hippo dies, Beachmaster will protect the corpse from hyennas, lions, crocodiles, or whatever. However if he's hungry he will eat it himself. The bottom line is that Beachmaster is the shit. www.urbandictionary.com
