Big foiling sailing boats are back in San Francisco! This is the second stop of the new sailing circuit Sail GP.

This post is part of my Guizhou-China blog post series. I don’t remember whose idea it was, but half of our group decided to hike all the way up to the pavilion that overlooks Zhenyuan and the valley.

This post is part of my America’s Cup in San Francisco blog post series. I missed the first two days of racing of the RedBull Youth America’s Cup (RBYAC) here in San Francisco, but I was very pleased to see our Swiss Team Tilt being in second place. Unfortunately, they couldn’t keep this position during races four […]
