An exciting start yesterday to the 10th edition of the @rorcracing Caribbean 600. Puffy, breezy, and shifty conditions greeted the 84 starters. My money is on Rambler 88, pictured here. More great photos like this regrammed one from Tim Wright and Arthur Daniel on the RORC feed, or track the fleet on their web site.

Big, bigger, and it's never big enough! What qualifies as a "megayacht" or "superyacht" these days? 130-feet, 150-feet, 170-feet? It's a question I've heard many times at the @miamiyachtshow yacht megayacht superyacht yachtlife miamibeach @mangusta_yachts_official

No shortage of 40-plus-foot center consoles, with plenty of horsepower, at the @miamiboatshow. Remember when 26-feet and twin outboards was a lot? Yet another sunny day here in Miami. Lots to see at both shows. Heading to the @miamiyachtshow now. boatshow yachtshow miami miamibeach boats boating boatinglife yachts yachting yachtinglife

Daydreaming about the perfect Sunday Funday personified. Warm weather. A sandy stretch of beach. Good friends and family. And a sporty & speedy shallow draft boat. Really looking forward to seeing the MJM 43z (from @mjmyachts) at the @miamiboatshow later this week. Love her little sister, the MJM 35z (see September 19 post). The 43 has modern triple outboard versatility and classic good looks. sundayfunday sundayvibes boatlife beachlife boat boating yachting yachtlife mjmyachts mjm43z

Did you know that clams like this one can "farm" their own food by sheltering algae (the blue) and eating the proteins and sugars the algae produces? Why is this important: Algae is a source of biofuel, and scientists are keen to understand the process better.

Absolutely crushed to hear yesterday that one of my favorite boat brands, @oysteryachts has gone into liquidation. Wonderful blue water cruising boats, and a great group of owners. I've had the pleasure of hosting their BVI Rendezvous/Regatta event three different times at BEYC.

I think I picked the wrong winter to take back up on paddle tennis! By best estimate, we've played no fewer than 15 practice sessions and 7+ league matches well below freezing, some in the single digits. Yet Jeff W. has still played every match and practice in shorts. paddletennis platformtennis wintersports wintersport platform tennis freezing cold brrr @bhcpt

A pack of wolves, a flock of geese, a pod of whales. These groupings I knew. But I learned this week that a grouping of jellyfish is incongruously referred to as a "Smack of Jellyfish."

So, your 87-meter super yacht (first photo) can't carry all the toys you need for a proper holiday for you and your guests. The solution? A 67-meter support yacht (second photo) to go along, carrying your Bell 365 helicopter, five large runabouts, a 4-person mini-sub, extensive diving gear, a fleet of jet skis, and various other watersports toys. ACE and her "tender" GARCON paid a visit to North Sound this week, and Mar Javierto of @ishootbvi snapped a couple of cool pics. yacht megayacht superyacht yachting yachtlife yachttender luxurylifestyle luxurylife bigboat bvi britishvirginislands virgingorda
