It’s all up for grabs on the final day of the 2017 49er Worlds, and for the men at least, its the first time in ten years that anyone not named Burling, Martinez, or Outerridge will be crowned master of the men’s skiff.  Plenty of breeze for the four men’s gold fleet races, and if we don’t get another afternoon gale, the medal races for the men and women will be a sight to behold.

Watch it all unfold above, and be sure to check out Clean’s dock walk a few minutes ago for the forecast, format, and a look at the fleet launching.

With safety and reliability sorries skyrocketing after Bora’s injury and the Nacra 17 bearing issues still fresh in World Sailing’s mind, the sport’s governing body, under pressure from the IOC, has pulled the foiling cat from the market and replaced it with Julian Bethwaite’s long-awaited full foiling 49er.  Seen here testing under the able hands of Kiwi 49erers Isaac McHardie and Bill McKenzie, the boat has a simple and robust flapped t-foil daggerboard and twist-grip rudder, and it’s already reached speeds  20% higher than any 49er in history.

When asked if it was maybe a little late to introduce a new foiling class for Tokyo 2020, World Sailing President Kim Andersen was nonplussed.  “We did it before, we can do it again!”

YES, WE’RE KIDDING. Happy September Fool’s Day.

Watch the full replay from Big Day 4 hosted by Mr. Clean over on Youtube, and stay tuned right here on the front page for today’s still breezy action beginning at 1030 local time/1130 CET and running til they’re done.

Two days of 49er and FX Worlds gone with zero racing, but at least there are piles of gorgeous racer chicks around to talk to!  Here’s a half hour of Clean’s Adidas Morning Show – first with super hot European champs Tina Lutz and Sani Beucke, then a chat with the entire 6-woman strong Dutch FX squad, and finally a preview of the top sailors by Class Manager and Beijing Olympian Ben Remocker.  And it’s all shot right in front of one of the most famous Olympic boats of all time: Rodney Pattison’s three-medal winning Flying Dutchman Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious – which he named to annoy the press.

Three days of fully livestreamed action are coming your way from Porto starting tomorrow…wind or no wind.  It might end up being a surfing competition instead of sailing….

More Clean interviews, pics from Ricardo Pinto and Maria Muina, and contests at the 49er Facebook Page.

Theatre-style short-course racing for the Medal fleets, 20-30 knots, flat water, and definitely time for some carnage.  Don’t miss it!

Clean and the 49er/Nacra 17 media team are calling it all live today, and with real breeze on for the first time in the Euros, we’re finally going to see some upwind foiling starting at 1100 CET.  49ers run in the afternoon, so don’t miss it…or if you do, just press ‘play…’  Isn’t the modern era wonderful?

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.

The fastest Olympic boats have joined forces for their European Championship (and beyond, we expect), and with our own Mr. Clean moonlighting as their broadcast host, there’s bound to be some interesting stuff coming from the site of the 1972 Olympics in Kiel.  The first three days feature a morning show and some social media content, while full tracking, live video with commentary, and the rest of the bells and whistles will come in on Wednesday for the important half of the regatta.

The 49er or Nacra 17 Facebook Pages are probably the best place to keep track of it all.

Our Sailor Chicks of the Week are 49er FX team Rebecca Netzler and Klara Wester from Western Sweden. Sure they look good, and yeah they kick some ass on the chick’s skiff, but how about the form of this dismount during last week’s Princess Sofia in Palma?  While we can’t score the landing, Klara gets a solid 10 for amplitude and flight time, and the successful attempt to create a show for the crowd when the capsize became unsaveable. and despite the DNF they took in the medal race, the blonde-and-blue girls took 4th…

Get to know them better or support the team on their website here, and Becca’s got all the pics from the flight sequence – as well as tons more – on their Facebook page, which we highly recommend you follow.  Or if you’re under 30, there’s IG.

Excellent shot from our old friend Jesus Renedo/Sailing Energy

The MUSTO + Torqeedo “Cleanin’ Up Europe” report continues with a talk about foiling Olympic catamarans, innovations in live race coverage, Rio craziness, and how to manage an Olympic Class of racing boats.

A few months back,  the guys who’ve been running the 49er and FX Classes so competently for the past few years added the Nacra 17 Class to their workload.  Canadian Class Manager Ben Remocker and expat Irish President Marcus Spillane are young, innovative, and don’t give a shit about politics – they consider their duty to their sailors absolute, and the vigor with which they approach their job is refreshing.

They pull no punches, either – whether it’s talking about the Nacra 17’s problems or the concerns about foiling, the inside stories from Rio, or explaining how to get around ISAF obstacles, these guys are always entertaining interesting and there’s plenty to learn in our mostly sober talk in a hotel room in Barcelona.

Listen above, download here for later listening, or subscribe to the SA Podcast on iTunes, and as always, a big thanks to MUSTO and Torqeedo for presenting all of our Vendee, ISAF World Council, and METS coverage this month.  Also thanks to Ocean Planet Energy and Doyle Sails NZ for their support of our coverage.
