Andraz and the boys at Seascape are pushing to fill their last few build slots for 2014, and they figured this shot might light some of you up a little, reminding us that the Seascape 27 isn’t just a race boat! The shot comes from Croatia on one of the world’s coolest bays, and if you’re looking to check out the new Seascape 27, the Chicago Yacht Club is the place to be; US boat # 1 sets off for the Chicago Mackinac Race next month, doublehanded with US offshore shorthanded Phil Sharp.
For more on the boat, see here.

Rob Doolittle and Bob Hodges took the second ever VX-One North American Championship last weekend in a 21-boat fleet out of Rush Creek YC in Texas. Full results here, full story here, and a couple of nice photo galleries (and the above shot) from Rush Creek YV here.
The super light, super quick VX-One continues to please, growing especially well on the Gulf Coast…check ‘em out here.

He may not be having the regatta he wanted or expected here in Hawaii, but Red Bull Youth AC winner and 49er World Champ Pete Burling still had enough speed to win yesterday’s Velocitek “Dash For Cash” for a cool grand. 25 knots of boatspeed in 11 knots of breeze on an 11-foot long singlehander? That’s fast.
Hear how he did it here, and stay tuned next week for the big announcement you’ve all been waiting for from one of Sailing Anarchy’s most loyal longtime supporters, Velocitek. Photo thanks to Gretta Kruesi/www.grettakruesi.com.

Another year, another countdown to America’s funnest overall regatta, and we welcome back Charleston Race Week to the SA family. With the rebounding Melges 24, the exploding J/70, the exciting HPR class, and continually growing big boat racing of all levels, it’s hard to beat Charleston in April. Here are a couple of words from our pal Randy Draftz, the wizard moving the handles around for the event.
“You’ve still got a couple of days to save $50 on your registration to America’s biggest regatta (and the biggest beach party in sailing), but you have to ACT FAST! After January 31, the Early Discount expires, so register now. Inshore courses are expected to reach capacity early, so late entries may be excluded in the larger inshore one-design classes. As of January 28, there are already 29 J/70s registered. And remember; only entries that are fully paid are considered registered. You can check out exactly who’s already signed up here, and the link to register is right here. Crew Board is here.”

Our friends at Crowley’s Yacht Yard are big players on the Strictly Sail stage. Here’s what they are up to.
Crowley’s manages and staffs some of the biggest booths at the show including SLAM, Henri Lloyd, Lewmar and Sperry. The main Crowley’s booth is back, the Close-Out booth is bigger than ever, both are full of great stuff from Spinlock, Mustang Survival, Gill, Adidas, Henry Lloyd, North Face, SLAM, and much, much more. Stop by for the best deal of the year on anything you need.
At the yard, we’re busier than ever, and we just finished a complicated but exciting turbo project on a SC52. The rig shop is going through the 200+ rigs that came into the shop in the fall, inspecting, tweaking and tuning. The gear heads in the Mechanical Shop are rebuilding engines. The store is getting a face lift, bringing in a bigger part of the Gill line, and creating a new service counter to answer all of the boating questions you can think of. The Fiberglass Shop is stripping decks, repainting topsides, and applying both race and cruiser bottom jobs. Our systems experts are installing new equipment and the yard guys are busy moving boats and just trying to stay warm.
Want to stay up to speed with Crowley’s? Email us at email@example.com to get added to our e-Newsletter list. Oh, and don’t forget to hit up the Winter Anarchy Party at Lizzie McNeill’s at 9pm on Friday the 25th and, if you’re still standing on Saturday, come out to the Pink Pony Party at Chicago Yacht Club’s Belmont Station and party like you just got to Mackinac (okay, maybe not quite that hard).
We’re at the following booths:
SLAM booth #341
Henri Lloyd booth #332
Sperry booth #207
Lewmar booth #331
Crowley’s booth #333
Crowley’s Close Out booth #530a
