According to several America’s Cup designers, the wing-loving world owes a huge debt to the C-Class. Were it not for some 40 years of wingsail development in the C, they say, we’d probably still be decades away from wingsails on AC boats.
Fortunately, that’s not the case, and here’s your final look at the full, 17-minute video story of the 2013 Little America’s Cup/International C-Class Catamaran Championship from Petey Crawford/Penalty Box Productions. Huge thanks to Magic Marine, Team Canada, Paterson Composites, Camera Lens Rentals, and Team Invictus for all your support!
If your interest has been piqued by this most awesome of all catamarans, be sure to hit the 2013 thread and ask the boys how you can get into the Class for the 2015 Little Cup in Lake Geneva. We’ll be there, and we hope you will too.

If it wasn’t for Franck Cammas, Oracle would likely have never won the DoG match. He owned the Volvo Ocean Race with Groupama 70. He owned the ORMA fleet with Groupama 2. He owned the ocean with Groupama 3. And now he owns the C-Class with Groupama C. Is there anything Franck Cammas can’t do? Well, he clearly can walk on water, so maybe not. Next stop for the French superstar: The America’s Cup? You heard it here first.
