Road Trip


European Vacation

again, the time has come for the Cleans to hit the road – and hit it hard.
This Saturday, we start a month-long trip to the wilds of the Old Country
for the 2008
Volvo Melges 24 World Championship
. We’ve got quite the production
planned for you – a little travel, a LOT of sailing, and from May 28th
to June 6th, you’ll see the most exciting On-The-Water Anarchy report
that we’ve ever done.

not just there for the racing – our duties include picking up GBR 592
from Belgium (she’s on a ship now) and taking her down to Sardinia for
the owner – SA’er SimonS. Simon’s "Team
Sevenstar SLAM
" has current World Champ snacktician Billy Hardesty
calling tactics, and we’ll be hanging with the crew for the entire regatta.
Afterwards, we’ll haul the boat nearly to the Arctic Circle to deliver
her to her new owners in Oslo, Norway before heading back to the UK via
Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Belgium and France. We’ve got plenty of time
to stop in some great places along the way , so be sure to check
in on the thread
and let us know if you have a fun sailing event or
anything else you think Anarchists should check out anywhere along our
route. We’re bringing the whole lot of you along for the ride.

the first time in a long time, defending World Champion Dave Ullman couldn’t
be at the M-24 Worlds – so he did the next best thing – and we’re incredibly
stoked to announce that today, Ullman
stepped up to become the exclusive sponsor for SA’s comprehensive
Melges 24 coverage from Europe. Dave and the rest of our friends at Ullman
will be an integral part of OTW Anarchy from Sardinia, so make sure to
stay tuned for news, technical information, and great offers from Ullman
– starting with an in-depth Innerview with Dave that you’ll find on SA
this Monday.

show your gratitude to Ullman for bringing OTW Anarchy to Europe for the
first time – at a minimum, check out their very slick
new website
and have a peek around. And enjoy the ride.
