World renowned sailor, educator, and 2-times America’s Cup winning navigator Peter Isler is offering a Scuttlebutt discount on his online curriculum of weather and navigation courses. But first he shares a recent experience:
I had the good fortune of getting the invite to navigate Manouch Moyashedi’s Rio100 in the 2022 Newport to Ensenada Race, a 125 nm course from Newport Beach to the finish in Ensenada, Mexico. With the start on April 22, the race has been an important fixture in the west coast offshore sailing scene for 75 years.
I’d sailed on Rio100 when it was first launched (after its transformation to a supermaxi) and did the 2014 Sydney Hobart Race on it, though for the last couple of years, I’ve been racing against it on Roy Disney’s turbo’d Volvo 70 Pyewacket70. But with Pyewacket not doing the race, I was all in.
