City Slicker





The final tally of 52 or 53 boats at the Melges 24 Worlds is less than half the total at least year’s Worlds and slightly smaller than even the US Nationals in 2007.  This is clearly a big disappointment, though not necessarily for the City of Annapolis or for sailing.  It’s hard not to love an Anarchist sailor chick with the nickname "emf," though in this case, those are actually her initials, and here’s Melges 24 Regatta Chair Liz Filter explaining how she and her EYC supporters turned something shitty into something special, pushing to move the boats and parties from a distant spot on the peninsula to smack in the middle of downtown Annapolis.  Racers love being the center of attention, and it’s injected some much-needed energy into the event, which begins tomorrow, live on OTW Anarchy TV.
