The JC Worldwide Podcast rolls snakeyes today with show # 11, and John grabs his longtime F-18 and foiling Nacra 20 FCS crew Colin Page for his most engaging chat yet – if you’re a fisherman, at least.  JC and his pro tournament fisherman pal talk top speed on the foiler, the ‘old days’ of beach cat adventure racing, and loads of great stories of Florida culture:

Bluewater spearfishing for cobia and how to win a tug-of-war with a big bull shark, the best way to catch 11 feet of swamp alligator, and plenty more.  Hit it up above or look for JC Worldwide on iTunes.  Some rad Soca gives this story its title.

Worrell 1000 sail smallerAs so famously documented in a brilliant article in Sports Illustrated (back when a brazillion men read it) and followed by hundreds of thousands of fans over the years, the Worrell 1000 was one of America’s most iconic races.  It was 1000 miles (or quite a bit more, at times) of bone-crushing, soul-bruising beach cat sailing, surf-launching, and high-speed crash-landing along the Atlantic Coast, with tons of old legends and unknown-but-now-familiar names showing their sack and insanity.

The Worrell died through a combination of the naivete of its creator, the now-deceased Mike Worrell, and some bloodsucking lawyers; it lives on in our hearts, and in today’s post from Anarchist “DryArmour”:

I still have this Hobie 16 mainsail from the 1983 Worrell 1000. My dear friend Carlton Tucker was one of the team members along with Hobie [Alter, -ed] Junior and Miles Wood. The sail is in great shape.  Pretty amazing for a sail that is more than 32 years old…The format used that year was non stop round the clock racing alternating team members at each stop. Brutal.
