SAILGP TO RETURN TO USA IN SEASON 2


SailGP will return to two iconic U.S. shorelines for its second and third events of 2020, with Season 2 grand prix events set for San Francisco on May 2-3 and New York on June 12-13.

Featuring the fastest on-water sail racing in the world, teams from the United States, Australia, China, France, Great Britain and Japan will compete for the season’s $1 million purse and the SailGP Championship trophy.

San Francisco Bay – one of the world’s top sailing venues – will welcome SailGP back to the Marina neighborhood on the northern edge of the city, with the shoreline acting as the racecourse boundary for the intensely thrilling action. Last year’s event saw sellout crowds as more than 22,000 spectators took in the U.S. debut of the league.

Just 40 days after San Francisco SailGP, the F50 catamarans will be unleashed on the lower Hudson River, as Brookfield Place in Battery Park City hosts its second edition of the supercharged racing event. More than 40,000 people attended last year’s event, which featured no shortage of drama, including the first F50 capsize.

Rome Kirby and his American squad will be looking to the support of home crowds at both events to propel them to victory and add to their first race win during the 2019 New York SailGP.

Tickets will be available early in 2020. For early access to ticket offers, more information and event details, registration click on this link... SAILGP

If anyone would like to join FunToSAIL and Inland NW Sailors in San Francisco for the May 2,2020 SailGP regatta please email us at funtosailgroup@gmail.com

Happy Columbus Day!


Columbus is justly admired as a brilliant navigator, a fearless man of action, a visionary who opened the eyes of an older world to an entirely new one. Above all, he personifies a view of the world that many see as quintessentially American: not merely optimistic, but scornful of the very notion of despair

3D Printed Sailboat


I always tell people that 3D Printing is the wave of the future. Want a fork, spoon, or plate? Just print it out in your home 3D Printer. Or how about a sailboat part? A batten cap, batten, new mast base, cleat, etc. 3D Printers can do so in metal, plastic, etc. Its only a matter of time before whole boats are built by a 3D Printer. Actually...

Here it is the world's largest 3D Printed boat, a 25 foot long and 5000 pound sailboat created by the University of Maine. This is a Guinness World Record on 3 levels: 1. Largest 3D Printed boat, 2. Largest 3D Printed object, and 3. printed by the largest 3D Printer.

The future is here and it's only a matter of time before most of us have these 3D Printers in our homes. It can not happen soon enough.
