Ahoy sailors of AYC! This Friday, The Northern Century, the biggest regatta of the year starts off the tanker dock when Colin Emsley aboard his lovely new lobster style cruiser the "Deanna J" fires the cannon. This is the 10th edition of this brutal challenge. As of today just two AYC boats have stepped up to meet the challenges of the Salish Sea. Boats from 70' down to a diminutive 24' are arriving at our friendly little club Friday night for a hearty meatball sandwich and a cup of grog before shoving off on this adventure. C'mon now you KNOW you want to be there. Please get registered so my Italian grandmother knows how many balls need rolling!

Great ride!!!

It's been a great ride....the America's Cup and Anacortes!   But the 'Auld Mug' is off to Auckland, most deservedly and decisively after their win today...7-1 for the final series.  
Twelve years ago Core Builders came to town with the 'Cup Spirit' and they've certainly left a positive mark on the community and AYC....times and celebrations we'll never forget.  THANKS!!!

MATCH POINT in Bermuda1

Kudos to the KIWI's...They're at Match Point with 2 decisive wins today and they deserve to be!!  Peter Burling is, and has been, simply phenomenal, as has the KIWI team.   ORACLE was initially slower (last weekend) but the shore crew seems to have  remedied that, but the tactics and boat handling have fallen short!   At the start of the second race today Burling with a classic Match Race move "rubbed ORACLE'S nose in it" and was ahead by almost 30 seconds at the start!!!!   (It may not of been that far, but it seemed like it and it might as well of been!!!)
Tomorrow we take one race at a time, and still have some hope!!
It must be as warm in Anacortes as it is here!!

Red Bull Youth Championship Finals in Bermuda...

The last 2 days were the finals of the Red Bull Youth Championships....18 to 24y/o's racing the foiling cats used in the AC World Series the last 2 years.  Exciting fleet racing!!!!  It wasn't over until the final race when the Brits, having led after the first day, salvaged the series win even tho' the KIWI's got 3 bullets the second day.   I was fortunate enought ot get out on a high speed RIB 'media photo boat'.    Note the young gal on the Brit crew...she was tactician.   We spent some time with many of them...GREAT kids!!!

'J' Boat spectacle in Bermuda...

For the first time ever, 7 "J" boats, the 45metre (150') beauties from the 30's, gathered to race around the buoys...and we were lucky enough to be here and get out on the water to watch them.
The boats included:

  • VELSHEDA   JK7   launched in 1933
  • SHAMROCK   JK3   also 1933
  • TOPAZ    J8   A more modern take on the 'J' design, built more recently
  • RANGER   J5  A replica of the original, built by Danish Yachts in 2003 as an exact replica, the white hull
  • LIONHEART   JH1  Another more modern replica built to the 'J' rule
  • HANUMAN   JK6    Another replica with updated systems
  • SVEA  JS1    Originally designed in 1937 but never built, and now just completed to 2017     standards and systems 
  • RAINBOW   ....   the original, is here but not participating in the racing
These behemoths draw 5.5 meters carry more crew than we could count,  and all sailed here.
We've lots of pics, but here are a few........
