The Yachtsman magazine 1892-39 re-issued in digital format

the yachtsman magazine

The Association of Yachting Historians has scanned The Yachtsman magazine from its first issue in April 1892 to the end of 1939  –  91 volumes and over 38,000 pages in all – and you can buy the entire series on a USB drive.

When it was first published The Yachtsman was the only magazine wholly dedicated to the sport of yachting published anywhere in the world.

Its weekly issues boasted yachting news and intelligence from yachting centres not only from around the British Isles, but also Europe, North America and Australia and other parts of the world; detailed reports on yacht races; tips; correspondence; model yachting and canoeing, together with suitable adverts. Later issues would also feature the development of the marine engine and motor boating generally, as well as the early advance of the seaplane. Above all, each issue featured a whole page photograph of the finest yachts of the day, taken by the very best marine photographers. It soon became the new journal of record.

What ensured its success was the advent, in 1893, of the finest fleet of First-Class racing cutters that had come into being: the Prince of Wales’ Britannia , Valkyrie II , Calluna and Satanita – all built that year to meet the American yacht Navahoe, which was coming over to challenge the British in their home waters. This news created enormous interest, well-beyond the normal yachting circles. Huge crowds would turn out to watch the First-Class yachts racing each other and their events were avidly read about.

Such was The Yachtsman’s initial success that in 1894 Yachting World appeared on the scene, copying the winning formula.

As with its previous release of the complete Lloyd’s Register of Yachts, The Association of Yachting Historians is offering the searchable scanned data on a memory stick complete with presentation box at £95.00  – go to www. yachtinghistorians.org to find out more.

On Thursday, February 1, 2024, as part of US Sailing’s National Sailing Programs Symposium, the best U.S. sailor athletes of 2023 were honored among family, friends, peers, competitors, and contributors to the sport of sailing.

Charlie Enright (Barrington, RI) and Christina Wolfe (Orcas, WA) were awarded the 2023 Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year Award and were celebrated along with fellow 2023 award finalists Betsy Alison, Erika Reineke, Steve Hunt, and Allan Terhune, Jr.

The winners were presented with the Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year Award trophy along with specially engraved Rolex Yacht-Master timepieces. These honorees join an elite group of notable national sailors.

As Skipper, Charlie Enright led the 11th Hour Racing Team to become the first American flagged team to ever win The Ocean Race in 2023. In his third shot at the elusive Ocean Race Trophy, the win had been over 10 years in the making for his team, and over 6 years in the making for 11th Hour Racing.

Of the Rolex Yachtsman of the Year Award, Charlie Enright said “It’s iconic. It makes me think of all the people who have come before all of us. I’ve done a lot of sailing with some of the other finalists who were nominated, and I’ve certainly learned a lot from all of them. This is an individual award in theory, but it takes a village no matter what you’re doing, and I can’t say enough about all the teammates that we had in this endeavor.”

Christina Wolfe is an accomplished offshore sailor, having put thousands of offshore miles under her belt. Wolfe is best known for her doublehanded sailing, which she does often with her husband, Justin. In 2023, Wolfe achieved 1st Overall ORC, 2nd Overall IRC, and Double-handed Line Honors in the Rolex Middle Sea Race, first female skipper overall in the Rolex Fastnet Race, and first in IRC 2 at the De Guingand Bowl, all achieved doublehanded.

“Never in a million years did I expect to be standing on this stage, let alone in the room with all of you,” said Christina Wolfe. “This is an incredible honor for me to be up here on this stage. I don’t sail for a living, but when I do sail, it’s the most alive that I feel, and I know many of you feel that as well. I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to do this, to see these iconic races, and to meet inspiring people.”

In January, three men and three women were chosen as finalists for US Sailing’s 2023 Rolex Yachtsman and Yachtswoman of the Year Awards. The annual rundown of the year’s “best in the U.S.” represents a wide range of accomplished sailors from various disciplines and at different stages of their respective careers. All nominees are highly distinguished and talented, and the nomination panel was especially impressed by their growth and depth of achievements. Yachtsman and Yachtswoman finalists earned their spot on this exclusive list by dominating their respective classes and showing true variety in their sailing accomplishments. All six of these sailors represent their own unique pathway in the sport, have demonstrated on-the-water excellence at international and national events, and have brought global recognition to sailing while representing the United States.

Meet The Italia Yachts Veloce 43

  • By Patrick Sciacca
  • April 3, 2024

Italia Yachts 43 Veloce

Italia yachts—a builder known for its high-performing sailing yachts—is entering the powerboat market with its 43 Veloce, which is set to debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

“Athletic” is a word that comes to mind when taking in this vessel’s profile. A razorlike stem looks purpose-built to dice a seaway, while the ever-flowing, curved shape in the hullsides hints at the 43 Veloce’s performance potential.

To that end, this 46-footer has not two, but three different propulsion options, including triple 400 hp Mercury Verado outboards, twin 380 hp Yanmar diesel sterndrives, and twin 440 hp or 480 hp Volvo Penta IPS diesels paired to pod drives. The builder projects a top-end speed of 35 to 39 knots with the inboard options, and the mid-40-knot range with the outboards. The outboard version and the sterndrive option also allow extra stowage for toys and gear when compared with the IPS-powered model.

Accommodations in all three versions are two staterooms and a single head belowdecks. A forepeak owner’s space with a queen berth and an amidships guest stateroom with twin berths are standard, but an amidships master or twin berths amidships with a forward lounge are also available.

Italia Yachts 43 Veloce

Outside, the cockpit has U-shaped seating around a teak table that lowers to form a sun pad. Just forward is seating for six with a teak table—all protected under the yacht’s hardtop. Fold-out decks increase cockpit real estate and create a beach-club vibe when the sun pad is set up.

With the 43 Veloce, Italia Yachts has created a dayboat with intriguing lines, luxury, speed, and a healthy set of options for owners to stylize the ride to suit their on-the-water lifestyle. It’s a yacht that has mass-appeal potential.

Command and Control

The Italia Yachts 43 Veloce’s two-seat helm station is notable for its open-air arrangement and unimpeded side-deck access. The single-piece windshield is raked, adding to the yacht’s sporty lines without reducing headroom. Helm electronics options are from Garmin, with tunes from Fusion.

Yacht Mark Twain being refurbished in bid to compete in Sydney to Hobart race once more

Man leading over the edge of the railing on a yacht.

For the better part of five decades, one yacht returned to the starting line of the Sydney to Hobart race more than any other.

The timber and fibreglass hulled Mark Twain was built in 1971 and has competed in the race a record-breaking 26 times.

But since its last effort in 2018, it has languished at port.

The yacht's new owner, Rob Payne, who refers to himself as the boat's custodian, has grand plans to refurbish the vessel, a Sparkman and Stephens 39, and return the Mark Twain to its former glory.

Although he hopes to return the boat to the starting line of the Sydney to Hobart, he also believes the yacht can be used for a greater good.

Along with Beaconsfield mine disaster survivor Brant Webb , Mr Payne has plans to establish a group called Old Saltys, which will aim to use sailing as a vessel to empower youth through sharing knowledge.

"Sailing is a metaphor for life. You've got to trim your sails and set your course and you're gonna get buffeted around," he said.

The Old Salty's motto will be 'well-weathered wisdom', and the men believe they have a lot of life experience they can share with young people anywhere Mark Twain can sail.

Mine collapse survivor finds solace on the sea

A man in sunglasses sitting on a yacht.

Brant Webb, who was one of two miners rescued after spending 14 days trapped almost a kilometre underground when a Tasmanian mine collapsed in 2006, says sailing helped him after the ordeal.

"After Beaconsfield, if I was having a bad day I'd call up the GP and he'd say 'get the boat ready, we're going sailing'.

"I've been sailing since I was eight years old. All my life. That's the great thing about it, you can turn your phone off out there and no-one can find you."

Mr Webb said the Old Saltys group was intended for "sailors who are too old to race and too young to cruise".

"It gives us old folk a new lease on life. The whole thing is to connect people, to put the unity in community, which we lost during COVID."

Mr Payne, a recent transplant from New Zealand, said he was heartbroken by the condition of the Mark Twain when he first found it in 2020.

"When I saw it, it broke my heart," he said, adding that he had the opportunity to "do something about" refurbishing the "old girl".

"We're only ever the custodians of these extraordinary vessels."

Once a fine racing yacht, the Mark Twain had fallen into disrepair in port at George Town in recent years.

From its first entry in the Sydney to Hobart in 1971, the boat long held the steadily increasing record for the greatest number of entries in the iconic race, even managing to clinch podium finishes for its class on several occasions.

Throughout the latter half of the 20th century, it competed in more than 20 Sydney to Hobart races, and in 2002 became the first-ever boat to have sailed in 25.

"Thousands of men and women have sailed on this beautiful vessel," Mr Payne said.

It was bought and refurbished for its 26th entry by veteran Sydney to Hobart skipper Michael Spies in 2018, but that was the last time it took part.

Mr Payne spent several months last year refurbishing the boat's hull himself and on Wednesday, March 27, the mast and boom were removed to be restored by a Beauty Point shipwright.

Along with Mr Webb, he hopes to take the Mark Twain around Tasmania, Australia and New Zealand and share their knowledge of the seas.

"My encouragement to youth is to get into sailing and you know, become part of the community within those sailing clubs," Mr Payne said.

"You don't necessarily have to own a huge boat … you can be in a little sabot [dinghy] and have that experience on the water. It's life changing and transformational."

He is keen to share the refurbishment project with anyone who wants to be involved and hopes the Mark Twain will sail again in the next two to three years.

Did We Get the Joke? Thousands of You Had Some Thoughts.

Responding to our list of the funniest books since “Catch-22,” readers offer their own choices.

  • Share full article

This illustration features a collage of book covers, each positioned on a brightly colored rectangle. Some of the covers are embellished with cartoon eyeballs and, in two instances, cartoon hands.

Nothing is funnier than unhappiness, according to Samuel Beckett, and publishing an excruciatingly short list of books deemed “the funniest” was bound to create a fair amount of it. We asked our staff book critics to choose 22 favorites among the many books that have made them laugh: They had to be novels written in English and published since “Catch-22” (1961), which we felt was a turning point in American literary humor. Then we heard from you on what our critics missed. In article comments and a reader questionnaire , more than 4,000 of you let us have it.

What fired up readers the most was our omission of A CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES (1980), John Kennedy Toole’s novel about a hapless medievalist and sometime hot-dog vendor padding around New Orleans. It was, by a landslide, the most frequently cited title in your responses, and your reactions ranged from gentle prodding to biblical wrath . Many recounted their ecstatic reading experiences: “My wife and I took turns reading chapters aloud in bed, readings that countless times were choked off by paroxysms of laughter and tears,” wrote Fritz and Cindy Tripp Johnson of Dillingham, Alaska.

Other popular picks included THE HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY (1979), by Douglas Adams; WHERE’D YOU GO, BERNADETTE? (2012), by Maria Semple; and LESS (2017), by Andrew Sean Greer. John Irving! many clamored. Gary Shteyngart! Elif Batuman! All great suggestions. For some of you, the time frame was too constraining, as were any conventional understandings of humor: You oddballs went to bat for “Wuthering Heights,” “Moby-Dick,” “The Magic Mountain” and, somewhat distressingly, “The Pentagon Papers.”

“Not since ‘The Bell Jar’ have I laughed at food poisoning,” said Alice McGinnis of Silver Spring, Md., who pulled for Katherine Heiny’s STANDARD DEVIATION (2017).

Here’s what else you told us.

You appreciate certain authors but disagree on which is their funniest book.

Carl hiaasen.

SQUEEZE ME (2020): “Skewers the Former Guy [Donald Trump], Palm Beach, xenophobia and Florida wildlife control, and makes me laugh out loud, even on second reading. What’s not to love?” — Lin Robinson (Albuquerque, N.M.)

DOUBLE WHAMMY (1987): “Playfully violent plot with rotting losers, and strangely kindhearted and sympathetic heroes. I get all smiley just thinking about it.” — Christine Shuler (Sunnyside, N.Y.)

Kurt Vonnegut

BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS (1973): “It’s irreverent, hilarious, breaks the fourth wall with madcap energy, has these delightful asides, but also some real wisdom.” — Josh Henderson (Springfield, Va.)

GOD BLESS YOU, MR. ROSEWATER (1965): “When I was a young man, it helped to shape my worldview. Now that I’m an old man, it still occupies a cozy apartment just above the volunteer fire department in my heart.” — Grant Loud (Los Angeles)

Terry Pratchett

SMALL GODS (1992): “A beautiful satire of the ways in which organized religion has lost sight of the importance of personal faith and piety. Loved by atheists and the deeply religious alike.” — Terry Fletcher (Pullman, Wash.)

GOOD OMENS, with Neil Gaiman (1990): “Enduring dark wit, dexterous language, a healthy look at humanity with fabulous allegories that make one sit up and realize that we can and must do better.” — Shaheena Karbanee (Harare, Zimbabwe)

James McBride

THE GOOD LORD BIRD (2013): “One of the funniest books ever written based on real characters and events: John Brown, Frederick Douglass and the raid on Harpers Ferry. The narrator is one of the great characters in American fiction and, like ‘Catch-22,’ the humor is made more poignant by the serious parts.” — Mike Sokoloski (Seattle)

DEACON KING KONG (2020): “Set in a fictional Brooklyn housing project just as heroin is arriving in New York, this is a hilarious yet deep look at race, community and drugs in the United States. It made me laugh aloud and cry.” — Helen Benedict (New York)

You have a taste for academic foibles.

DEAR COMMITTEE MEMBERS , by Julie Schumacher (2014): “Inventively told through a series of recommendation letters, this novel is a hilarious jaunt through both the emptiness of an academic career and the self-excoriating emptiness of a man who has lost his way. It’s a book that made me laugh and cry simultaneously, while nodding in recognition.” — Kyle Rudgers, (Flemington, N.J.)

STRAIGHT MAN , by Richard Russo (1997): “I am a retired professor who until recently was teaching at a regional Rust Belt campus of a state university, exactly the setting for Russo’s novel. One can laugh at the ridiculousness unfolding in the book while acknowledging the grim realities it exposes.” — Ruth Glasser (Watertown, Conn.)

MOO , by Jane Smiley (1995): “I teach women and gender studies in a liberal arts college at a land grant university, and Smiley nails it with wit and insight. From the provost’s assistant who actually runs the university to the ever-fattening pig housed in the agriculture college, the novel reveals the foibles and foolishness afoot in universities. And we see, in the novel as in real life, that during budget cuts, women’s studies is the first to go.” — Susan M. Shaw (Corvallis, Ore.)

“I live just a few miles from the Iowa border. I know these people. And ‘Moo’ stars the best literary pig since Wilbur: Earl Butz, named after the former secretary of agriculture.” — Peggy Derrick (La Crescent, Minn.)

CONJURE WIFE , by Fritz Leiber (1943): “Modern audiences might find the sexism of the male protagonist insufferable, but that is part of what Leiber is satirizing. The idea that the success of male academics in mid-20th-century America was dependent upon their wives’ use of witchcraft was a brilliant sendup. Though gender politics have changed, Leiber’s satire of the cutthroat means needed to survive in academia remains relevant as ever.” — Bert Clere, (Carrboro, N.C.)

KINGS OF INFINITE SPACE, by James Hynes (2004): “A bad breakup, an academic career lost. Could a furloughed professor’s life get worse? Wait, what are those otherworldly moans coming from the HVAC ducts? Why does no one else hear them?” — Jane Niles (Culver City, Calif.)

Some of you made the only case for a given book.

BLOTT ON THE LANDSCAPE , by Tom Sharpe (1975): “Sharpe’s books always take a good poke at the British way of seeing the world. Rollicking good fun.” — Kris Bulcroft (Chieri, Italy)

EPITAPH OF A SMALL WINNER , by Machado de Assis (1881): “This ‘autobiography’ of a dead man is funny and startlingly modern! That is all the more remarkable since it was written in 1881 in imperial Brazil by the Black grandson of enslaved people.” — Samuel Cole, (Richardson, Texas)

I AM A CAT , by Natsume Sōseki (1906): The descriptions of human behavior by the unnamed cat are so realistic and at the same time so absurd. The story is set in early 1900s Japan, but it makes you realize that human behavior always and everywhere is crazy, tragic and hilarious at the same time. — Jeffrey R. Hannig (Fargo, N.D.)

Classic can still be funny.

THE PICKWICK PAPERS , by Charles Dickens (1837): “The bad news: This book is about the size of a brick. But please keep in mind that it’s a picaresque. After being introduced to our cast of morons, we are invited to join them on a series of misadventures, each amazingly visual and filled with puns, malaprops and visual shtick. It’s almost like watching a Charlie Chaplin movie!” — Jeffrey Kahan (Los Angeles)

DON QUIXOTE , by Miguel de Cervantes (1605): “Its humor operates at every level, from the crudest slapstick to the most cerebral, self-reflexive play. Always bittersweet, at once funny and sad, joyful and tragic, a reminder that laughter is always more than fun.” — Paul Cohen (Providence, R.I.)

THE LIFE AND OPINIONS OF TRISTRAM SHANDY, GENTLEMAN , by Laurence Sterne (1759): “In this still unclassifiable novel, the asides, omissions, diatribes and narration make for the most rollickingly hilarious read.” — Jonathan May (Memphis)

Some of you can really sell a book.

PRIESTDADDY , by Patricia Lockwood (2017): “This author sincerely loves her father, who happens to be a priest and rarely wears pants at home.” — Jerah Kirby (Brooklyn, N.Y.)

THE BREAST , by Philip Roth (1972): “Lucky the character is stuck in the pages of time. He’d probably be catatonic once he realizes that, as the breast, he’ll be no more than shriveled hanging fruit.” — Rose R. Jeter (Macon, Ga.)

INFINITE JEST , by David Foster Wallace (1996): “The longest drug joke of all time.” — William Larsen (Plymouth, Mass.)

REDSHIRTS by John Scalzi (2012): “The love child of ‘The Office’ and ‘Galaxy Quest.’ ” — Maggi Schierloh (Chicago)

GALÁPAGOS , by Kurt Vonnegut (1985): “What could possibly be funnier than the extinction of the human race? Heartwarming, too.” — Dan Kravitz (Harpswell, Maine)

Awkward Timing: Kelly Ripa Begs for Invitation to Sean 'Diddy' Combs' Yacht in Re-Run of Talk Show Aired While She's on Vacation

Apr. 3 2024, Published 1:32 p.m. ET

It looks like someone working for Kelly Ripa didn't read the room correctly.

The 53-year-old is on vacation with her talk show co-host and husband, Mark Consuelos , and in the meantime, ABC has been airing re-run episodes of Live With Kelly and Mark.

Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are currently on vacation and airing re-run episodes in their absence.

It seems producers didn't watch the re-run that was aired on Tuesday, April 2, beforehand, as Ripa begged special guest Mary J. Blige for an invitation on her friend Sean "Diddy" Combs ' yacht. At the moment, the embattled rapper is the subject of a s-- trafficking investigation and five sexual assault-related lawsuits.

In the episode, originally aired in June 2023, Ripa and Consuelos praised Blige for her flattering figure in a photo of the "Family Affair" singer, 53, posing on the yacht.

In the re-run episode, Kelly Ripa asked Mary J. Blige for an invite on embattled rapper Sean 'Diddy' Combs' yacht.

Providing background information on where the stunning snap was taken, the award-winning artist revealed: "I was in Capri, and I was actually visiting my big brother Puff’s boat ."

In response, Ripa enthusiastically replied, "next time you go on Puff’s boat, we’d like to !"

Mary J. Blige and Sean 'Diddy' Combs are longtime friends.

  • Kyle Richards Says Hilaria Baldwin Is Her 'Dream' Addition to 'RHOBH': 'The Door's Open'
  • Kyle Richards Reveals 'Amazing Advice' Rihanna Gave Her About 'RHOBH' Castmates Prying Into Marriage to Mauricio Umansky

While the interview was conducted prior to Combs' intense legal woes coming to light, the re-run airing was terrible timing, as it was just one week ago that the "I'll Be Missing You" rapper's Los Angeles and Miami homes were raided by federal Homeland Security agents in connection to an ongoing human trafficking probe.

At the time the interview was initially conducted, Combs was still respected within the world of Hollywood and even received the Global Icon Award last September at the MTV VMAs — just two months before his ex-girlfriend Casandra "Cassie" Ventura hit him with the first of many lawsuits and accused the rapper of rape and physical abuse throughout their relationship, which lasted from 2005-2018.

Sean 'Diddy' Combs is currently the subject of a s-- trafficking investigation.

Powered by RedCircle

Live With Kelly and Mark producers seemed to realize their mistake in re-run choices, considering a clip of the show shared Tuesday was taken down from YouTube after the media noticed the awkward timing of their actions.

Blige has yet to comment on Combs' scandal since the situation landed the 54-year-old in headlines, however, the renowned rapper himself previously denied any wrongdoing when accused of sexual assault.

"For the last couple of weeks, I have sat silently and watched people try to assassinate my character, destroy my reputation and my legacy," Diddy declared in December 2023. "Sickening allegations have been made against me by individuals looking for a quick payday . Let me be absolutely clear: I did not do any of the awful things being alleged. I will fight for my name, my family and for the truth."

Kelly Ripa Asks for Invite to Diddy’s Yacht in Poorly Timed ‘Live With Kelly and Mark’ Rerun

Live With Kelly and Mark just proved that re-airing old interviews isn’t always smooth sailing — especially in the wake of Diddy ’s recent scandal.

The Tuesday, April 2, episode of the morning talk show featured an old interview with Mary J. Blige that originally aired in June 2023. During the chat, cohost Kelly Ripa asked Blige, 53, for an invitation to Diddy’s yacht.

“I was in Capri, and I was actually visiting my big brother Puff’s boat,” Blige said, referencing one of Diddy’s many nicknames.

“Next time you go on Puff’s boat, we’d like to!” Ripa, 53, replied.

Us Weekly has reached out to Ripa and ABC for comment.

The choice to re-air the interview was poorly timed given the raids of two of Diddy’s homes conducted on March 25, allegedly in connection to a federal sex trafficking investigation. The rapper, 54, was not home at the time of the raids and has not been charged or arrested in connection to the investigation.

TMZ reported that Diddy’s sons Justin, 30, and King, 26, whom he shares with exes Misa Hylton and Kim Porter , respectively, were both detained by police and released several hours later.

While Diddy has not directly addressed the raids, his lawyer released a statement on March 27.

“[Last week], there was a gross overuse of military-level force as search warrants were executed at Mr. Combs’ residences,” attorney Aaron Dyer told Us in a statement. “There is no excuse for the excessive show of force and hostility exhibited by authorities or the way his children and employees were treated. Mr. Combs was never detained but spoke to and cooperated with authorities. Despite media speculation, neither Mr. Combs nor any of his family members have been arrested nor has their ability to travel been restricted in any way.”

Diddy shared his first social media post since the raids on Sunday, March 31.

“HAPPY EASTER from Baby Love,” he captioned several photos of his 17-month-old daughter, Love, whom he shares with ex Dana Tran . Diddy muted comments on the Instagram post.

The musician was also spotted out and about on Thursday, March 28. In photos obtained by the Daily Mail , Diddy looked unbothered leaving a Top Golf in Miami with twin daughters Jessie and D’Lila, 17, whom he shares with Porter, who died at age 47 in 2018.

After the raids made headlines, Diddy’s ex-girlfriend Cassie (real name Casandra Ventura) reacted to the news via a statement from her rep.

“We will always support law enforcement when it seeks to prosecute those that have violated the law,” the singer’s spokesperson told Us on March 25. “Hopefully, this is the beginning of a process that will hold Mr. Combs responsible for his depraved conduct.”

Cassie, 37, who dated the record producer on and off from 2007 to 2018, filed a lawsuit against Diddy in late 2023 accusing him of rape and repeated physical abuse throughout their relationship.

Diddy vehemently denied the allegations, and the lawsuit was settled out of court one day after Cassie’s filing.

“I have decided to resolve this matter amicably on terms that I have some level of control,” Cassie told Us via her attorney Douglas Wigdor at the time. “I want to thank my family, fans and lawyers for their unwavering support.”

Diddy also released a statement distributed by Wigdor: “We have decided to resolve this matter amicably. I wish Cassie and her family all the best. Love.”
