Capsizing

Ok, it is not even a sailboat, but great footage with a happy ending. The fisherman was successfully saved by his colleagues.

Global Ocean Race

This one finished recently and it has the potential to become a major race. On this edition there were not many boats and not really top sailors.

I hope things change on the next edition because the formula seems to make a lot of sense: Inexpensive fast and seaworthy boat (40 class racer) crewed with two guys around the globe with scales.

The movie from the last one was released and it is a nice one:

Re: Interesting Sailboats

Another boat test with a nice movie on the Grand Soleil 39, this time a British one by Yachtingworld and you know what? Toby Hodges says about what I have been saying about this boat: it is a great boat!

Nimble, beautiful with and easy sea motion and a good cruising interior it will be a delightful boat to sail and will make proud any owner. It is not cheap but if you have the money for it don’t miss a test sail: Sailing and living with style, a fast elegant and comfortable style is its motto.

Vor 70

It is over and the last victory was for Puma that won the Galway in-port race. With that victory Puma was 3th on the race but won the in-port race series. Curiously the one that come in second (in-port races) was Camper and Groupama was only third. Definitively the French are not around the cans racers but ocean racers

Volvo Ocean Race 2011-2012 | PUMA pounce to take In-Port honours

The Podium of the VOR: 1st Groupama, 2nd Camper, 3th Puma.

At the middle of the race who would think that the Spanish from Telefonica would not be on the final Podium? Great edition this one VOR. I hope that the next edition, raced on one design boats, will be as interesting.

Seascape 27

It looks as good as the drawings that had been posted on this thread some time ago

Looks like a great coastal cruiser that will be able to do some good results racing. Thanks for posting it.
