Petey picks up another trophy crewing for Dan Cheresh in the growing C&C 30 fleet at their first North Americans this past weekend, and we dig the low (no)-budget video edit put together by old pal Alden.  Results.

Rick Warner’s ORMA 60 Arete (ex-Sopra) shattered her 2015 BYC-Mack record by more than an hour, beating in everything by a long, long way (as she should).  With the speedy old Windquest mothballed for the race (some of the DeVos clan will be racing cats in Harbor Springs next week), Arete was in another time zone from the rest of the fleet. Results are here.

Keep an eye on SA’s Facebook Page, we’re we’ll be doing some live stuff from the deck of the mighty trimaran during the Round Mackinac Island Race after the CYC Mack.

redhead 2And they always have. Nice to see one  - Redhead – out front in the staggered start Pac Cup to Hawaii.

It’s early days, but we are disappointed to see the Melges 32 Rufless get out of the blocks poorly. They had better hope that they start to get their conditions because if they do, they will shred.

Speaking of shredding, the 100′ Rio is looking at a weather window that could result in a sub 6 day passage. Believe it. And for the Moore 24 believers, belive in Mas as they lead in every handicap category! They will be ones to watch.

The usual assortment of marginal sailors and marginal boats are dropping out of the race, but what do you expect with a “run what ya brung” race to Hawaii?

Speaking of watching, watch ‘em here. Know that the Pac Cup organizers (never the most progressive group) still think it is smart to have a 6y hour delay on the tracker. So lame.

not that hardIt doesn’t have to be this hard people. You can run an event that doesn’t produce mountains of waste. You can have fun without destroying the environment. Do you like sailing in clean waters or do you want them to be filled with trash and shit?

Well guess what? You have to do something about it and its not that hard. For the 2016 Vineyard Cup we had over 1,000 Sailors walk through the tent over three days and we produced less than 4 pounds of trash.

Here’s how it broke down:

5 32 gallon tubs of recyclables – All you need are separate LABELED bins and some kids to help point the old people in the right direction.

60 Gallons of Compost -TALK to your local Farms, they want and need this to produce great food. A lot of them will even take meat and seafood scraps as it increases nitrogen in the soil.

75 Cases (24) of returnable Bottles – The money from the returnables went to the High School kids who were happy to pick it up and take it.

17 Green Team program kids – Little Kids want to get involved and are easier to train than most adults.

7 Green Team program parents – Ok someone has to make sure the kid with the boogers isn’t taking sips of the half empty beer bottles.

<4 Pounds of waste taken to the dump (mostly plastic bags that held ice cubes)nWe could have done better with this if the ice machine works

0 Paper products – Yes we used a rental company who does weddings, they gave us a deep discount to support our event…use partnerships.

0 Single serve water plastic bottles – Just ban them in your sailing instructions

100% locally sourced food (over 1,000 meals served) – Local Farms want to work with you. They would rather partner with a local organization than sell to a distributor.

87 Boats – So are you coming next year?

Big Pimpin’

We are super stoked to have CST Composites back on board the World Famous Sailing Anarchy! Look for some fun carbon giveaways real soon!

cst banner adCST Composites is looking forward to the 2016 Rio Olympics with a keen eye on the sailing events. Numerous sailors from different countries, across a number of different classes, are hoping to win gold in Rio, using CST Composite’s latest tiller extension products. The tiller extensions are critical in steering the yachts through the course.

They are the result of years of development by the Sydney-based carbon fiber and composite tubing, profiles and components manufacturer that had its beginnings in high performance sailing masts.

Founder and CEO Clive Watts, a keen sailor working for Hawker de Havilland on advanced aerospace composite components for Boeing in 1995, identified an opportunity in the high performance sailing market for filament wound masts. He set to work and built his own filament winding machine and software from first principles.

After winning several world titles CST Composites’ filament wound sailing masts quickly became popular and remain the most technology advanced sailing filament wound masts on the market. Continued development of filament winding technology has enabled CST Composites to diversify into new niche markets and continue to develop its sailing products. Read on.

my nerd boat

It appears Pokemon Go is everywhere, as evidenced by these nerds in their nerd boats…

(Not really, this is the official opening of the Monaco Solar Boat Challenge. Organised by the Yacht Club de Monaco in collaboration with the UIM (Union Internationale Motonautique), it is a unique event as it is the first and only competition in the world for solar-powered boats on the open sea. The boats competing have not only been designed but are also being driven by students from international universities. More here.)
