Try it. Chicks dig it.


As part of our plan to take over the world, we must first take over Live Sail Die, so we’ll be posting regular stories on their web site and keeping it positive and talking it UP. Check em out and enjoy.


What is the difference between “Talk it Up”and “Talk it Down”?

One has “Up”in it and the other “Down”. Positive and negative.

ASBA created a new trophy at the Winter Nationals in June and named it the “Talk it Up”award. It is a positive award and reflects all the good things an individual or crew bring to an event – win, loose or draw.

Sam in Tassie has regrettably had to put his Shaw 650 on the market. This boat won it’s first race ever at the 2012 Nationals and has only been sailed by an old lady around the block on Sunday after church since. All the gear and sails are top notch.

While we both want you on the water out sailing, we hope that you’ll spend some time catching up with the news of Sailing and Sports Boat racing on our web sites.  ASBA and LSD both share the same philosophy on the virtues of our sport and you won’t see any negative sailing talk around here. Passion without the Attitude.
