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.

Team Canada’s Little AC ride Fill Your Hands may have inspired helm Fred Eaton and crew Magnus Clarke to fill something during an early-morning testing session for the International C-Class Cat Championship next week. In 15 knots of wet Falmouth breeze the boat’s foils ventilated going into a gybe, with the ensuing splashdown sending Eaton into the water and Clarke around the bow. Eaton was fine but the crew not so much; the slender carbon dolphin striker sliced deep into Magnus the Marine Mammal’s calf to the tune of seven big stitches. We’ll have an update later on his condition (though he’d probably still race if his leg was sliced clean off), and news galore throughout the next 12 days. Easiest place to keep up with the event: The Multihull Anarchy thread and the Facebook page. Look for photo galleries, interviews, boat tours, and details on the live schedule beginning tomorrow. Photos from Meredith Block/C-Class.
