Her name is Gitana 17 (aka Maxi Edmond de Rothschild). She’s 105 feet long, took 20 months to build, and she can fly.

I don’t know what the immediate plans are. But if they can avoid hitting anything or flipping over, someone’s going to need to buff up a spot on the base of the Jules Verne Trophy.

Friday, August 4th, 2017

I thought a lot about color, because I’m a little bit obsessed with color. In the opening it’s all color. Right? It’s every color. And that is life, and that is beauty, and if we were living a balanced life. And that was always what I loved about Themiscyra…

And then what was interesting was when we got into man’s world, I didn’t want there to be an overwhelming array of color. And that’s actually true to the period, because paints are limited and pigments are going to be limited back then. And so we really struggled with what is the language of that world vs. Themiscyra, which is this incredible idyllic island-light world.

And we ended up landing on John Singer Sargent, who’s one of my favorite painters. But John Singer Sargent is very modern in a way. He’s very pop in a way. Because he would make these incredibly bold choices where all the shadows go to black, and then only this red stands out, and only this white.

And that really informed everything, it’s like it is, man’s world is much more limited, controlled. It’s within smaller pockets. There’s actually a lot of color. But the color is only blue, gray, not green. You know. It’s like blues, grays, red, and white. And so it was kind of cool to get to dig into suddenly a very controlled palette of life, life as we know it in man’s world.

¡Vamos MAPFRE!

The 2017-18 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race won’t start until October, but the pre-race “Leg Zero” series got under way today. Seven Volvo 65s raced as a class in the Around the Island Race, circling the Isle of Wight as part of Cowes Week. Spanish entry MAPFRE, with skipper Xabi Fernández, was the winner, setting a monohull course record of 3h 13m 11s.

I still think Dongfeng (which came in fourth today) has the best chance to win the race around the world. But I can’t not cheer for MAPFRE, given that my favorite sailor from the last edition has a spot on the boat. 🙂

Next up: The 600-mile Fastnet Race, which starts this Sunday, August 6.

Birds and whales and Pokémon, oh my!

I’ve discovered that one difference between passage-making on a sailboat and on a powerboat is that on a powerboat there’s more time for sightseeing. Today the wind was light and southwesterly, which was ideal for the longest leg of our trip past Big Sur, the Monterey Peninsula, and Monterey Bay.

There was so much to see! Images above:

– The fog lifting to reveal Point Sur.

– A flyby by a black-footed albatross off Cypress Point. I saw more albatrosses today than I’d previously seen in my entire life. They’re amazing!

– A badly framed shot of a humpbacked whale sounding. There were humpbacks everywhere.

– The huge flock of sooty shearwaters we plowed through in Monterey Bay. We also saw pink-footed shearwaters, rhinoceros auklets, common murres, red-necked phalaropes, some kind of murrelet, pigeon gulliemonts, Forster’s terns, western gulls… The birdy highlight for me, though, were the aforementioned albatrosses.

– My dad steering us into the anchorage in Santa Cruz.

– The view of the pier IRL.

– The view of the pier in AR. Ahhhh! There are raids happening right now just a few yards away!

It’s okay. I can wait. The plan for tomorrow is another crack-of-dawn departure and the final leg of our trip. With luck we’ll soon be at the West Coast mecca for boaters and Pokémon players alike. Wish us luck!

Closer…

Calling it now.

No but seriously. It’s a big world, and they’re gonna be spending a lot of time in the Southern Ocean where anything can happen. But if you’re one of the other competitors you’d better get busy.

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017

What was it like growing up with a professional musician as a father? Was he off on tour a lot? Did he ever take you with him?

It all seemed very normal to me as I didn’t know any different. I remember trying to get in his suitcase once when he was in between tours. Harry my brother and I never went with dad, we were always more interested in the presents when he got home! We went to a lot of rehearsals, and I was in the Missing link video. I’m the little girl jumping on a sofa in the rain holding on to a rope. I remember asking for them to not have the music on while they were filming me as it was too loud and scary.

I think the excitement of seeing it is seeing it multiple times… Really, we want people to have the experience of the multiplicity of it, and the only real way to do that is to come back and see it again and again.
