Ben Moon’s late charge wasn’t enough to hold off the speed of Bruce Mahoney’s DNA cat with T-foil Exploder rudders at the biggest A-Cat North Americans in history; Mahoney becomes the champ of the first-ever event held at SailNC in the Outer Banks, and we expect it to be the first of many.  Here’s a quick look thanks to the Rachel and Richard show; we’ll have a bit more about the current state of A-Class racing later in the week.

With racing abandoned on day 2 of the A-Cat NAs, Houston cat racer Bruce Mahoney took the chance to trial his brand new flying J/boards in 12 knots of breeze and a beautiful evening in the OBX.  Here’s the interview and Bruce’s explanation, along with a look at what a stable 18-20 knot ride looks like on an A-Class.

The low country of the OBX means you can always find flat water and cheap seafood, and calms are rare; here’s the first video look at racing for the largest A-Cat fleet ever assembled for a North American Championship, thanks to Richard and Rachel from Ocean Images.  Photo gallery here, news release here, and keep an eye on the SailNC Facebook Page for updates.

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.
