monster moores

Wow, we are late with this, but the boat and sailors are too cool not to run it!

It’s pretty damned impressive to see a 30-boat fleet turn out for a North American Championship in a boat that was originally designed more than 40 years ago.  Even more impressive is the percentage that fleet represents of the total number of boats built – nearly 20% – and it speaks to how much the owners truly love their little cult Moore 24s.

Morgan Larson on Bruzer narrowly beat out Scott Easom’s 8-Ball for the title in breezy Santa Cruz, the birthplace of the boat, and the thread is chock full of some really excellent journalism on the class and Santa Cruz’s racing heritage from Jeremy at Surf City Racing, as well as more great photos from Jeremy and some like this one from "Zef".  Give it a read.
