While the word ‘Mooch’ still may remind folks of the racist nutbag running the USA for the moment or the Goodfella who ran his press office for 6 minutes last month, we hope the UK yacht Scaramouche can begin to wash the smell off what is a damned good nickname.  And if they keep taking underprivileged city kids out on a well-found racing yacht and then publicizing it beautifully to the world, they’re on their way.   From the blurb (snd thanks to Halcyon Yachts for the heads up).

After five days at sea, a team of inner-city teenagers have made history as the only crew from a comprehensive [what we call ‘public’ school in the US -ed] known to have finished the world’s largest offshore sailing race.  Scaramouche is a 45ft German Frers yacht that was built in 1982 for the Admirals Cup, a true thoroughbred. The students are however the stars of the show and they deservedly won the Media Prize and as such were first up at the Fastnet prize giving.

In non-Mooch related news, French skippers absolutely dominated the huge race, winning 9 of the 11 major trophies.  England may have the biggest races but they grow offshore talent in France like they grow grapes and dairy cows: Very, very well.

We’ve never been bashful about our huge crush on former Sailor Chick of the Week and US Yachtswoman of the Year Steph Roble, and we’re stoked to see her join up with musclebound fury Maggie Shea as they make their run at Olympic gold. Unfortunately their first major event together hasn’t gone quite as planned, with a crazy day 3 of qualifications killing their chances at making it to Gold Fleet here at Euros.  Watch Steph and Maggie get stuck on the top mark in this painful vid, and watch the gold fleet racing action live from 1100 CET right over here.  Hit up Steph and Maggie on Facebook here.

This Dongfeng Race Team video on the eve of the weird Leg Zero (featuring the Fastnet and some other practice racing) gets us started quite nicely, thank you.  You’d think this was straight out of Sam Greenfield’s fertile mind, but according to the Youtube, it comes from Eloi Stichelbaut and Jeremie Lecaudey.  Maybe they’ve been watching too many Sam Greenfield videos?  We’re waiting to see what comes from creative superstar Jen Edney, the sole woman selected to be an OBR despite thousands of applications from female reporters…

Talented and shredded sailor chicks, tales of stolen cars and inter-squad rivalries, and a guy who can’t seem to lose as long as he has a female driver are the guests on today’s Adidas Morning Show at the 2017 49er/FX/Foiling Nacra Euros.  Check out Clean and the team, LIVE from the deck of the 1972 Olympic Sailing admin building as Day 2 of the event begins.  Check out Facebook for more action from the fleets.

Pete Burling’s late charge wasn’t enough to catch a streaking Paul Goodison as he takes the first back-to-back Moth Worlds Championship since Mark Thorpe in the pre-foiling days.  Great work from the GBR team, and great work from Beau Outteridge and ‘Randy Cunningham’ for the fun media over at #mothworlds, where you can find the final highlight reel here.  Our favorite video of the week?  Inside Simon Owen-Smith’s (a/k/a S/O/S) mobile moth workshop, of course.  Title shout out to memorable 80s ads.  Results here.
