    The new US Sailing Team website:*http://www2.ussailing.org/Page4.aspx*is up and running.

    Delta Lloyd Holland Regatta Set to Start (Campbell Sailing)

    Medemblik greeted me with an apparently standard Dutch greeting: a rainy, windy, cold slap in the face. The reality of why I have not been to Holland in five years since my first Olympic-circuit Laser regatta hit me as I pulled into the boatpark and the rain started coming down and the temp struggled into [...]

    Holland Regatta Three Races on Day One (Campbell Sailing)

    Rarely on our schedule do we end up sailing more than two races a day. Yet, the organizers of Holland’s Grade One event have scheduled us for exactly that for the entire event. Three races per day starting at 1300 hours each day. Yesterday, day one of five we started at two o’clock with about [...]

    11 Days to the Big Show (Campbell Sailing)

    Its a surreal existence here at the Olympic Sailing Center Qingdao. In reality, its been a surreal existence throughout the last three years sailing full time on the Olympic-class sailing circuit. The boatracing is intense, fast and at times frustrating. The improvement is constant albeit slow-going. Because the US system to this point puts so [...]

    Measurement? (Campbell Sailing)

    What is there to measure in a class of boats where the organizing authority of the event provides all the equipment to the sailors? As laughable as it is, the Laser class does have to go through a measurement, even at events where equipment is provided, mainly to check the rigging systems, to confirm that [...]

    Village Idiots (Campbell Sailing)

    The dog-days of this campaign are certainly finished, and without a doubt we are in the home stretch into the Olympic regatta. Now, more than ever I am forcing myself to take days off from sailing and tapering my training routines. I’ve reached my fighting weight of 168 pounds for the first time since I [...]

    Forrest Gump Moments (Campbell Sailing)

    It’s been a hectic but amazing couple of days here in China. Friday morning we woke early for a seven o’clock bus to the airport. Sailors filled almost four touring buses and piled into a chartered 767 and took off for the massive Beijing Capitol Airport. We arrived at about 11 and were ushered off [...]

    Just 45 Laser Dudes Going Around Trapezoids? (Campbell Sailing)

    That’s what happened today on Course A situated just off the massive spectator pier under the Qingdao skyline.??Nearly fifty countries competing in the Laser for three medals after eleven races. Sounds like just another boatrace. Yet, this one is distinct beyond all others. Years of planning and training for the Heaps upon heaps of [...]

    AP Flags Droop Over Qingdao (Campbell Sailing)

    Yesterday was a hot and steamy day down at the boat park totally void of any wind. The postponement flags (AP) went up at 11 o’clock and only came down briefly at around 4 in the afternoon, so that they could attach flag A underneath to signal that the day was officially abandoned and races [...]

    Waiting for Wind, Breezy Forecast for Sunday (Campbell Sailing)

    We’ve had two trying days here in Qingdao. Light air and heavy flood current made racing yesterday marginal at best. We went out, returned to shore for an hour and half postponement and then went back out before racing Friday. Yesterday we went afloat in a breezy offshore northerly. After setting a course [...]

    Great Conditions, but. (Campbell Sailing)

    Just imagine the following scenario: 15-20 knots, direction steady between 75-85 degrees, 4-5 foot waves, dying ebb switching to flood tide (keeping the fleet off the starting line), start time an hour earlier than normal (posted at 1200), and three races scheduled. What could be more welcoming to a race committee? Unfortunately, with the addition [...]

    Final Olympic Regatta Report (Campbell Sailing)

    After avoiding the internet altogether the last few days I was in China, I had better get back to business here. As many CampbellSailing.com readers may have seen, the end of my Olympic regatta was no walk in the park. The final day of racing was a phenomenal day of sailing. Uncommon westerly breeze filled [...]

    The Next Step (Campbell Sailing)

    One of my favorite parts about the Olympic Games and any event under the umbrella of the USOC is the constant care, attention and assistance that you receive while in that high level event. I’ve been lucky enough to participate in three of those events at three levels: the 2005 World University Games in Turkey, [...]

    Hurricane Hanna blows out Silver Heel Racing (Campbell Sailing)

    Unfortunately, the effects of Hurricane Hannah blew out our weekend of racing on the Silver Heel against the fleet of Log Canoes in St Michael’s Maryland this weekend. Forced to postpone likely until next year, we’ll turn to some other racing through the rest of the fall season here. Here’s a shot from last year:*Meanwhile, [...]

    God I love St. Michaels... I'm sorry about the race being cancelled - but I'd like nothing better than to be sitting at The Crab Claw with beer and crabs right now :)

    Speeches and Boatracing (Campbell Sailing)

    Speeches and boatracing: just about sums up these last few weeks. Since coming home from China I’ve been in the process of tackling my small slice of real life, albeit staying as far away from an office as possible. Beyond a failed log canoe weekend, I’ll have spent three weekends making the mad Friday dash [...]

    Monday Morning Tactician: 29 September 2008 (Campbell Sailing)

    I made it back on the water this weekend on Long Island Sound racing aboard Rima2 a Reichel/Pugh 55 based out of Stamford, CT. Having spent some time on boats of that size, I certainly knew what to expect, but in reality it was one of the first times I had been given total responsibility [...]
