After a little soul-searching in Kiwilandia, our old friend and filmmaker Petey Crawford seems to have gotten his groove back, at least if you go by this very well-produced video promo for the C&C 30 Winter Series.  More from the Class:

Entering its 4th year, the C&C 30 One Design Class is working hard to generating some new excitement. The group of owners in the US are committed to maintaining a regatta schedule designed to attract current and prospective class members and get participation numbers back up to double digits.  There are obviously a few lingering questions about the future of the class and new builds with US Watercraft auction scheduled for tomorrow Nov 11th. However, there are a lot of boats ready to be sailed and a common goal within the current ownership to get boats on the starting line. This isn’t your friend’s uncle’s C&C 30, and the One Design class is a great boat to fill the gap in the 30-35′ sportboat range left by the demise of the US Melges 32 class.

When 2 hurricanes devastated the Caribbean islands and therefore the 2017/2018 Winter schedule, everyone decided that Fort Lauderdale would be a great alternative and the plan was put in motion. With 4 regattas schedule,  there are some great opportunities for some awesome one design action to attract teams from across the US and offer a chance for new teams to dip their toes in the C&C 30 OD class and charter one of the available boats. Check it out and make sure to contact [email protected] for any questions about charters, boats for sale etc. He will direct you to the appropriate person.  Come to Lauderdale this winter. It’s Time To Get Down!

New England graphic designer, illustrator and leather artist Bryn Bachman is one of the most in-demand non-pro sailor chicks anywhere, and she’s proved herself countless times in the Melges, Etchells, and now C&C 30 fleets.  Brynn’s dexterity on a big air tack in Key West earlier in the month got superstar video producer (and C&C 30 crew) Petey Crawford’s creative juices flowing with this video, and her Extreme 2 team’s continued dominance in the Class convinced us to name her our Sailor Chick of the Week!  Learn more about Bryn here.

Clean Report

In this double header to celebrate the end of a long road trip, Clean first talks to freshly minted Director of the US Olympic Sailing Team Malcolm Page.  The Australian double gold medalist and multiple world champion answers questions from Clean and the Anarchists, including a frank assessment of where the US team is, why he took the job, why the US team became also-rans for the past three cycles, and the route (and how long it’ll take) to rekindling America’s prowess in olympic sailing, as well as loads more questions.  More than an hour from Malcolm (with thanks to Will Ricketson and Josh Adams for their help and information provided for this podcast), learn more about him at www.ussailing.org.

The second part of our podcast has quite a bit more laughs, when we are rejoined by two repeat visitors, also both world champions.  Bora Gulari and Petey Crawford add their entertaining and knowledgeable voices to the SA Podcast, with the group discussing Bora’s new job helmsman of the Quantum Racing TP52 and his testing of both the new UFO Foiler in Newport and the new Nacra 17 Foiler in Holland. As a past Melges 32 world champ, Petey gets into  the new Melges 40 as the chat moves to the balkanization of big boat one-design classes.  As the drinks kept flowing, they turned to the world’s biggest problems: Foil kiting and the Olympics, the future of live sailing on the web, how to fly commercial using fake ID, and finally some ribbing on Mr. Clean’s performance at the summer’s Sunfish Masters Nationals.  Bring your popcorn for this one.

Our final November episode (sort of) comes to you thanks to our title sponsors Musto performance sailing gear, Torqeedo electric motors, Ocean Planet Energy Systems, and Doyle Sails New Zealand.

The SA Podcast returns with Episode 8, and it’s a big one; over 3 hours of funny, interesting, and informative chat with some of the real characters in Midwest sailing.  First, we grabbed an hour via Skype with Bayview-Mackinac record-setting navigator Ron White from the ORMA 60 ARETE to find out about their Mack record, future plans for the fastest boat in the lakes, the likelihood of an ORMA/MOD trimaran freshwater series next year, and whether we’ll soon see fleets of day-racing cats battling for the overall honors in the Chi-Mac.

After that we’ve got two hours of hilarity on the shores of Harbor Springs, MI with Melges 32 World Champion and longtime Anarchy videographer Petey Crawford and Detroit racer Blay Schoenherr on a multitude of subjects; the sordid details of the brutal crash between the 12-metre Courageous and a grip of boats (including Petey’s) at the NYYC Round the Island race and Courageous navigator Gary Jobson’s later attempt to deny responsibility for it, race reports from Blay on a 70-foot sled, the suicide of the nastiest bar owner in any sailing venue anywhere, the olympics, who drinks the most on the SA Podcast, and much, much more.

Extreme 2 continued her dominant ways in the C&C 30 class at the NYYC Annual last week, with mast man Petey Crawford continuing his ultra-high octane videography with this highlight reel from the regatta.  What isn’t on camera was a stellar Round-The-Island Race crash when the 12M Courageous sailed headlong into the rocks at Fort Adams, but not before t-boning a J/88 and knocking Extreme 2 skipper Dan Cheresh to the dirt with its spinnaker pole.

Courageous retired from the race and didn’t even bother showing up to the protest hearing despite being notified in person (and they lost, of course) but the old boat’s tactician has now claimed it wasn’t their fault.  We’ve invited said tactician and several crew and on-shore spectators to provide their view before sharpening up the pitchforks…
