Tweezerman covers sailing from every angle. He writes about his own sailing today, and his own sailing decades ago. He covers current sailing news and sailing history. He has great pictures and great music. At times he educates me; at other times he makes me laugh; he always entertains me.
He wrote a terrific series of article in 2011 about the summer three decades ago when he raced sailed three world championships in five weeks, the International Canoe Worlds, the International 14 Team Racing Championship (the most prestigious event and the defacto world championship at the time apparently) and the actual official International 14 Worlds.
Our man claims that he wasn't World Championship caliber but here's a photo of him leading one race in the International Canoe Worlds...
... and he was a member of the first and only East Coast team to win the International Team Race series. That's our hero on the right, I believe.
These days, it seems that the Classic Moth is Tweezerman's boat of choice and he couldn't resist have a little dig at me (and 200,000 other Laser sailors) with his post on Why a Classic Moth is Better than a Laser. I forgive you, Sir. But even this Moth fanatic has been spotted trying to be a Faux Laser Sailor and he has written 38 other posts about Lasers so he's not all bad.
I love the variety in Earwigoagin. Tweezerman covers the America's Cup and weird European regatta party traditions; he reports on the Volvo Ocean race and reviews pumpkin beer; he has posted several articles about crash boat operation and also some photos of his friend Bob's model boats. I could go on. Always fascinating stuff.
So if you haven't enjoyed the Tweezerman's work before, head over to Earwogoagin and browse around. You won't be disappointed. A very worthy holder of the title Best Sailing Blog on the Planet 2011.
