Jake Beattie and the folks at Northwest Maritime Center folks are once again showing why they’re some of the best race organizers in the sport with this promo of the 2017 Race 2 Alaska and a big announcement! Here’s the note from JB:

Hey Clean,

Same race, June 8th starting date, but with one new change: There’s another $10,000 in play. We’re going to buy a boat that finishes.

Every time a boat finishes we’re going to show up with a big Ed McMahon style check and the team will have 5 minutes to decide if they want to sell us their boat. First one to say yes gets the $10k, and we get their boat…whatever it is.  It means we’ll probably end up with a shitbox, but we wanted a way to encourage the scrappy side of the race. Who knows what will happen, but we’re laughing for now at least.

Watch the great vid above, and if you want more info, watch this presentation.  Or, ya know, the new thread.

In Sailing Anarchy Podcast # 7, Mr. Clean caught up with some of the juice behind the badassery that is the Race 2 Alaska just before the start of Leg 2: First, a half hour with race founder and cool-as-stage-smoke square rig sailor Jake Beattie to learn some of the stories behind the race, second, 20 minutes with M32 owner/skipper Randy Miller, who is currently about 270,000 grizzly bear lengths ahead of the second place boat; most likely only major damage or injury will prevent the Mad Dogs from crushing the existing race record.  Finally, we spoke with Tritium Racing boat captain Ryan Breymaier shortly before they started (and then withdrew from) Leg 2 of the race.  Their story after our Podcast picks up here.

Whether you’re considering the R2AK in the future or you just want to learn the details behind what it is and why it and races it shares features with are so goddamned appealing to both competitors and the public, you’ll want to tune in for around 2 hours of the best damned sailing podcast around. To subscribe to the SA Podcast, head over to iTunes.  For downloads, embed codes and similar shit, go to our Libsyn host page.

You’ll find trackers and news and videos over at the event page linked above, but the discussion in the SA Forums is quite spirited and interesting.  Dig this race?  Head to the forums now.

You young punks can learn more about how crazy Alaska makes you (and the title of this piece) if you check out this site.

This one came in from longtime anarchist and President of the Victoria Moth Class Richard Jackson.  Nice one, Jacko – learn more about this excellent charity here.

I am writing you this short email to share something really cool with your readers. I was moth sailing off my home club at Mount Martha on Port Phillip Bay when a saw a massive fleet of kites coming down the bay. I went out a long way to make sure my eyes weren’t deceiving me and got in amongst 100+ kite boarders flying down from Rosebud to Port Melbourne! It was truly one of the coolest things I’ve ever done on a boat.  I went with them until the beach I left from was almost a speck on the shore and decided the wife won’t want a call from Melbourne telling her to come get me.

When I got home, I found the Across The Bay For Cancer page [which is loaded with great pics and reports -ed] and saw this video; it’s amazingly compelling, a great cause, and the group is really accomplishing something special.  I hope to great a moth fleet to involved next year, but in the meantime, enjoy the video.
