    Scuttlebutt #2546 Rules Question (Campbell Sailing)

    An interesting rules question went through the Scuttlebutt threads this week, and the rules were discussed and then corrected and explained. But, as often happens with rules discussions, the tactical ramifications of the scenario were not discussed. It is well and good to discuss the rules and debate their nuances, but without putting them in [...]

    Day 1 Trofeo Princesa Sofia (Campbell Sailing)

    Today we had a leisurely two o’clock start on the Laser racecourse at Palma’s Princess Sofia Regatta. The sun was out but not very strong in the cool 55-degree 8-10 knot southerly that dominated the day. Before today the racing area was mostly flat calm aside from the wake of practicing boats and their accompanying [...]

    Day 2 Palma - Swell, Sun and Seabreeze (Campbell Sailing)

    We had yet another spectacular day for sailboat racing here off the south shore of Mallorca today. Right on cue at 12 o’clock the seabreeze filled across the Bahia de Palma to a light-moderate 7-10 knots out of the south matched with a smaller swell than previous days. The sun was out but temperatures struggled [...]

    Palma Continues (Campbell Sailing)

    Palma is a curious place. It seems to fit the role of Europe???s Florida, filled to the brim with cheap hotels and narrow beaches, warmer than the rest of the continent most of the year and largely populated by retirees from any number of countries from northern Europe. Around the side-streets of Ca???n Pastilla where [...]

    Palma?s Final Series Done - Medal Race Tomorrow (Campbell Sailing)

    Palma finally lived up to its reputation and delivered its quota of one missed day of racing on the schedule today, but we had plenty of breeze??? It???s a decidedly longer story than it ought to be. I awoke to the palm fronds tapping against my window this morning, an issue we haven???t had with [...]

    CampbellSailing: 9th at Trofeo Princesa Sofia (Campbell Sailing)

    Yesterday’s medal race turned out to be blowing-dogs-off-chains kind of day. We awoke to 15-18 knots of southerly breeze driving three foot waves into the Bahia Palma and it would only get windier. The majority of the fleets started around noon??while kitesurfers and windsurfers blasted along the shoreline just inside the medal-race courses. By the [...]

    Monday Morning Tactician: 24 March 2008 (Campbell Sailing)

    This week in Palma presented a number of possible situations worthy of discussion from the Monday Morning perspective. The Medal Race is always one of those scenarios that provides an increased number of close calls and debatable decisions. As we lined up for the final approach to the starting line in the final race of [...]

    Monday Morning Tactician: 31 March 2008 (Campbell Sailing)

    Bob McKillop, yes that Bob McKillop, the insolent yet patient coach who took his Davidson players past my Hoyas last week in the NCAA Tournament said something that struck an interesting chord last week after his squad played their way into the ‘Sweet Sixteen.’ In response to a question about whether he had expected his [...]

    Monday Morning Tactician: 14 April 2008 Upwind Positioning (Campbell Sailing)

    First things first, I’d like to put up a little testimonial to embarrass my little brother Michael who, while sailing at Georgetown University’s Sailing practice last Thursday, had an incident exactly like the one described in this column last week. I’ll let him tell the story: At practice on Thursday, the exact situation that you described [...]

    Monday Morning Tactician: 5 May 2008 (Campbell Sailing)

    With the routine so set in place in France last month you might think I was ready to stay. You would be wrong. After a couple of crazy connections and having a bag lost somewhere between Dublin and Philadelphia as I write, I made it back to America safe and sound. Rain greets my arrival [...]

    Live this Morning on KUSI San Diego (Campbell Sailing)

    After a slew of interviews over the last couple of days local San Diego news network KUSI News had me on live this morning at 10am for their*Inside San Diego spotlight. Pretty cool, I was right up there with the two anchorwomen. It was sort of an “Anchorman” the movie day today interviewing with the [...]

    Re: Live this Morning on KUSI San Diego (Campbell Sailing)

    LOL what a classic:
    http://www.kusi.com/news/insidesd/18807049.html?video=pop&t=a

    Mr. Campbell is a down to earth guy. LOL The women thought they had a wild card for moment there, totally losing control of the interview. LOL

    Suddenly blog comments like: "...So little brain power gets used on the Laser racecourse it is incredible..." gain overall context. You don't usually find these sorts of statements from any one else other than Chris Dickson. LOL

    good on ya mate!

    New West Marine Article (Campbell Sailing)

    Last week was a busy one. I spent a few days at home in San Diego and managed to have two magazine interviews, a magazine photo shoot, two television interviews (one live on KUSI), and still got to spend a mother’s day weekend sailing with Mom and the Javelin J105 team. Here’s a great article [...]
