Jason Carroll’s 5-year journey to win the Melges 32 World Championship is over, and a huge congratulations to the party-loving anarchists aboard the good ship Argo on a brilliant performance in the world’s toughest owner/driver fleet.  We’ll have a more detailed report from one of the war horses aboard later this week, but one thing is for certain in the M32 Class – if you want to win a Worlds, you start with Morgan Reeser as your coach.  Joy Dunigan photo with a bit of freaky editing by Clean to make it a little more like the movie poster the shot brings to mind.  More shots here, and check out more great work from Argo mastman Petey Crawford starting tomorrow as live video producer (and shooter/editor/a dozen other jobs) at the Little Cup.

UPDATE:  Coach Reeser lays out his ‘roadmap to success’ and a word or two about the Argo program, from somewhere over the Atlantic in a very large non-commercial jet.  Rough life, Morg!

The Argo Worlds was a pleasure to be involved with as they deserved a World Championship in ’11 and ’12!  I’m so thrilled that they go it this time.  They are a great team that needed to realize how good they were and what was required win a Worlds.

Goals:

1) Average first mark rounding (top 30%)

2) Always passing boats after mark 1.

3) Save your drop race for the final fleet race

Team Argo had more fun than anyone else at the event (ie. they did not change what they normally did just because it was the Worlds!)

A great team, a great class, and a great boat to sail with so many other fantastic owners and their teams. 

I can’t wait till Miami 2014!

The beautiful people (including former SCOTW Molly Baxter) pose for a drunken, blurry trophy pic after taking the overall Lauderdale to Key West Race victory aboard the Gunboat 62 Elvis - even with a rating some complain is a gift.  If the rest of the crew look familiar it’s because they’ve been frequent visitors to the front page as part of Jason Caroll’s Melges 32 Argo.  Argo never races Key West Race Week, though Caroll and crew say they love the 160 NM feeder race, and will do it again.  Bella Mente was first over the line, and first corrected monohull - results are here.

In the ‘other’ Key West event, numbers are down yet again in almost every class for yet another year, especially among the bigger boats; the handicap fleet loses another ten boats this year, with just 31 handicap racers in total – and that includes the TP52s, IRC, PHRF – everything.  Yet thanks to our friends at the green donut and the nutters at J/Boats who somehow managed to get 39 J/70s registered and delivered in just a few months, Quantum Key West continues to tick along on life support.  On a positive note, the HPR fleet is a nice new addition to the Grand Prix circuit (is there a Grand Prix circuit anymore?) and the Melges 24 is enjoying something of a rebound, while the Swan 42s have shown they are indeed physically capable of leaving the Northeast. Light air is forecast for the beginning of the week, and organizers claim to be doing some kind of live coverage…hey, how innovative!  Umm…maybe not.

Best place for daily results is here.  Best place to jaw about it; here.
