18 Again



Showing us once again how to do regattas well, the F-18 Worlds at the very hip and non-royal seeming Royal Belgian Sailing Club has some 180 catamaran teams from 15 countries racing in great wind on the North Sea.  This is one of the biggest events in the cat world, and organizers aren’t pinching pennies; with great parties, live tracking, awesome pictures from our good friend Pierre Contin, and quickly released daily videos like this one below (about 5 minutes too long, but still awesome).  If you’re impatient, fast forward to the last two minutes of the video for the conditions that broke as many as eight masts and led to countless capsizes.  The rest of the vids are here. Another friend of SA, Mischa Heemskerk, is currently in second.  Full results here: Go Mischa!
