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.

The annual New York Yacht Club Cruise is back, and as usual, there’s plenty of drama, and yet more reasons to watch it when you see the burgees coming through your piece of water.  This time, the drama is in limerick form, thanks to SA’er ‘Left Hook’.  To add your own limerick (and there are already several good ones) or for the full story of the sinking of Concordia 40 #11, hit the thread hard.

Whose Swan was so big he said “fuck it!”
So he went down the line,
spied Winnie so fine,
and said “crap, we’re on port, we should duck it!”
