Come one, come all—Sailing News from the U.S. and Beyond
Interestingly, this year has also delivered some fine new offerings of the multihull variety, including the Motive 25R and the SeaRail 19, both of which look like they could help you taunt your local harbormaster with high-speed tomfoolery. Whether this influx of multi-hulls has been spurred by the (fairly) recent changes to the America's Cup or simply by the general public's greater awareness of boats with multiple hulls, U.S. sailors now have two more great options when considering a go-fast toy.
On the small-boat side of things, the story of this year's Annapolis is one about the newly launched J/70 and the Farr-designed B/One. Both boats look to have plenty of wick and they both feature great aesthetics; it will be interesting to see where OD classes (geographically) take seed and which class attracts more critical mass. Stay tuned!
The equipment tents were also bursting with cool new kit, the list of which is too extensive to mention here (yet another reason to travel to Annapolis to see this show for yourself). Suffice it to say, some bits were carbon fibers, others aluminum, hydraulic, plastic (of various flavors) or even stainless, but all are designed to help you sail faster and to have more fun (read: win more).
The show continues through October 8 (Sunday) so there's still time to rearrange your weekend's plans. According to reports, the weather could get a touch patchy this weekend (but hopefully not), so be sure to pack your foulies. And if you forgot to pack your wet-weather kit, trust me, there are plenty of opportunities to make purchases here. I'd be seriously surprised if you can find a better selection of foulies—or any other equipment or boats—anywhere in North America this weekend!
