    World on Water March 03 17 Sailing News TV Show. Man Overboard, Sailing Arabia, JJ Giltinan more
    Geoff Waller



    Published on Mar 2, 2017
    In this week's WoW Graeme Spence falls off the front of the Oracle Americas Cup defender into the path of the foiling fins and thankfully he survives the experience but it's very dangerous. The RORC Caribbean 600 finishers rate the race an unqualified success, the EFG Sailing Arabia Part One report of the race and teams, the 12th to 15th place finishers return to Les Sables d'Olonne in the Vendee Globe and the 2017 Winning Group JJ Giltinan 18 Footer Championships are on in Sydney and it's a battle between arch rivals Australia and New Zealand with a Yank nipping at their heels. We have a leg of last Sunday's race. At upload time the Aussies are leading but it's close.

    Volvo 70, SFS II, hurtles around windward mark at Heineken St Maarten Regatta 2017

    Published on Mar 5, 2017
    Winning skipper of the Whitbread Round the world race 1985-86, Lionel Péan has still got it. Watch this high-speed mark rounding and thundering bear away around a mark at the north end of the island of St Maarten. Barely raising his voice all day, he commanded a crew of 15 and six guests aboard the Volvo Open 70, formerly Puma Il Mostro, around two race courses, having broken the record for rounding the island of St Maarten the day before.

    One Month of Sailing in New Zealand. Trip of a Lifetime! Ep. 76
    Sailing La Vagabonde



    Published on Mar 6, 2017
    Wow. We’d heard sailing the New Zealand coastline was going to be pretty epic, but we really had not expected such beauty. Sailing the rugged east coast from the Bay of Islands down to Auckland and back was quite the adventure. This weather is still going to take us some time to get used to. Join us in the longest SLV episode ever made!! It took me a bloody long time to make. Lots of love, Elayna

    Memories of the ships ALGOMA TRANSFER, ATLANTIC ERIE & ALGOMA QUEBECOIS at Port Colborne
    RightInNiagara



    Published on Mar 14, 2017
    On Jun.16, 2014, the CSL ship ATLANTIC ERIE was docked at Port Colborne, just above the Clarence St. Bridge, while a bit farther up the canal, the ALGOMA TRANSFER was sitting near the scrapyard, waiting to be broken up; and further in the distance, the hull remnants of the great ALGOMA QUEBECOIS loomed above the water.
    I had forgotten that I had taken photos of these 3 ships together on the same day in Port Colborne - all 3 ships which are now gone.
    It turns out that just 6 months after ATLANTIC ERIE was seen here in Port Colborne, an incident would lead to her demise as well: she would become grounded in the St. Lawrence in Jan 2015 while carrying a cargo of salt. The damage to her hull apparently was serious enough to be considered uneconomical for repair, so she was docked until she was sold for scrap and towed (under the name "SPIRIT OF SHPONGLE"!) to Turkey in late 2016.
    ATLANTIC ERIE was an ocean-class workhorse of a ship, built in 1984 at the Collingwood yards. Originally named the HON. PAUL MARTIN, her name was changed to ATLANTIC ERIE in 1988. Here she is seen with the port of Halifax painted on her stern. She regularly traveled along the east coast and to Europe.

    Ship ATLANTIC HURON smokes the rub rail
    RightInNiagara



    Published on Mar 15, 2017
    The downbound ATLANTIC HURON seen entering Lock 2 on the Welland Canal, Jun 17, 2013, using the common procedure of angling her bow to the pier edge in order to align herself into the lock opening. Here, the ship's hull groans and squeals as it rubs against the pier, creating puffs of smoke. This was the old pier so the rub rails were still probably wooden timbers The new piers have rubber rub strips.

    FAST SAILING - HOW CLOSE TO THE WIND CAN WE GET?
    followtheboat



    Published on Mar 16, 2017
    We make a pre-dawn start on a 45 mile sail south from Chalong Bay. As we head clear of Phuket, the Indian Ocean swell is met by strong easterlies, giving us a fast and wet sail to Koh Rok Nok, yet another of our favourite islands in Thailand.

    Those easterlies build as we head for an even faster sail south east to the Butang archipelago, a stunning group of islands which forms part of the Tarutao National Park.

    Millie has the best freshy-fishy supper in ages!

    But Liz has a flight to catch, so as time slips away we plan the best angle of attack to avoid heading straight into 3 metre waves.

    Ship ROBERT S. PIERSON Welland Canal opening day 2017 season
    RightInNiagara



    Published on Mar 20, 2017
    As seen at Lock 3 on Mar. 20, 2017, the ship ROBERT S. PIERSON, owned by Lower Lakes Towing, had the honour of being the first upbound vessel on the Welland Canal for the 2017 shipping season.
    (This is the beginning of the Welland Canal's 189th shipping season - although the First Welland Canal was officially opened on Nov 30, 1829; technically, it'll turn 188 yrs. old on Nov.30, 2017. But if we include the first year of operation (1829) as being the first shipping season (which it was) then today's opening is the start of the canal's 189th shipping season, although technically it's still 187 yrs old until Nov.30th, 2017.)
    Also (at 02:09) the new pier which was built this year below Lock 3 is seen completed. Starting on Jan 1, 2017, the previous wooden pier at this site was completely demolished, and this new steel-supported pier was constructed in time for the season opening.

    Ship ROBERT S. PIERSON at Lock 7 and at Derek Point
    RightInNiagara



    Published on Mar 20, 2017
    The upbound ROBERT S PIERSON is seen exiting Lock 7 on Mar. 20, 2017, the opening day of the 189th shipping season.
    The Welland Canal will be 188 years old this year: it was officially opened on Nov.30, 1829, so technically, as of today, it is still 187 years old, until Nov.30, 2017! Seeing that the canal's first shipping season was the 1829 season, then this means that 2017 is the canal's 189th shipping season (even though its turning 188 yrs old in 2017)
    In Thorold, PIERSON passes by the downbound tug CALUSA COAST (05:28 with barge DELAWARE) which are heading to Lock 7, while tug SHARON M 1 (02:19 with barge NIAGARA SPIRIT) wait.
    Two hours later, PIERSON reaches Port Colborne, passing ALGOWOOD (06:54) at the stone dock, passing the Robin Hood flour silo, and pulls over to stop just above Derek Point (just below the Main St. bridge) to wait for the downbound CAPT. HENRY JACKMAN to exit Lock 8.
    Earlier this morning, the CALUSA COAST / DELAWARE unit was honoured at Lock 8 as being the first downbound vessel to enter the Welland Canal for the 2017 season.
