The A-Cats continue their uncertain march toward full foiling despite Class rules specifically formulated to prevent it; To paraphrase Jeff Goldblum, ”Flight finds a way”, and it certainly has.  And in spite of (or, perhaps, thanks to) the rules rift, the Gunboat A-Cat North Americans at SailNC on the Outer Banks has one of the biggest NorthAm fleets in the Class’s history.

While we won’t see the illegal but logical bottom-in L-foils that a few Aussies are experimenting with in Sydney, a 60+ boat fleet will include quite a few cassette and J-board foilers and some serious talent on hand.  Our own Senior Editor is on the ground in Manteo, North Carolina to help the Gunboat team provide all sorts of interesting coverage of one of the coolest events in the US this year, and it all begins above with a good look at some of the sailors and some of their rides.

Best place to follow every bit of 5 days of sailing on the breezy Carolina coast, including a pile of pics already? SailNC’s Facebook Page.

Since the end of the America’s Cup, have you experienced any of the following symptoms?

1) Pain when you see slow sailboat racing?

2) Inability to sleep without youtube videos of AC45 crashes going in the background?

3) Compulsive watching of any foiling boat videos no matter how short, terrible, or foreign?

4) Obsessive research about J-foils, L-foils, T-foils, Elevators, and all sorts of other shit that has no bearing on your personal sailing?

If so, you need to take two Great Cups and call us in the morning.

That’s because we will be broadcasting live from the first ever non America’s Cup foiling multihull regatta this week in picturesque Lake Traunsee, Austria, where racing teams from all over the world will be test sailing and then racing the first few GC-32 foilers against each other as well as one of the older-foiled designs.  Luna Rossa’s been training for the better part of a week with some seriously cool results – the first foiling gybe ever – and we certainly expect them to kick some ass, but with AC folks like Slingsby, Langford, Minoprio and more all checking in, it could be anyone’s game.

Our own Mr. Clean will be leading the commentary team for four hours each day of live action racing. Tune in right here, but only if you like excitement, spray, beautiful alpine backgrounds, and top America’s Cup teams.  Miss it and you miss one of the most exciting developments in the sport.

cst skiffLooks like some breeze finally hitting the Harbour for the fourth race of what’s been a light air affair until now in the JJ Giltinan/18 Foot Skiff Worlds.  Today most of the fleet has their small rig up; will it pay or will it wallow?  Watch right here and a big shoutout to the great job the whole live streaming team is doing; it’s our privilege to be their Official Streaming Partner and we’re stoked there are another 4 days of great action ahead!
