Andy Burdick Wins Back to Back C Scow Nationals!

DSC_0006This past weekend the Maxinkuckee Yacht Club in Culver, Indiana hosted the 2011 C Scow Nationals. Five raced were completed in the three day National Championship on beautiful Lake Maxinkuckee and the 55 teams thoroughly enjoyed the great waterfront facilities of the Culver Academies where the event was based out of. Andy Burdick and Chris Impens on Team M / I-45 did not lead the regatta until after the first race on Sunday. They clinched their victory with a bullet in the last race of the Nationals to take home the title. Burdick is a back to back winner of the C Scow Nationals, having won the 2010 event with crew, Jim Gluek. The 2011 C Scow Nationals were organized by Sail22. Mark roundings and details of the races can be found on SailingUpdates.com which covered the event and photos by Becky DaMore can be viewed at in the C Scow Nationals 2011 photo gallery.

Melges 24 Worlds 2011 & Sailing Updates

DSC_0002We arrived in Corpus Christi, Texas for the 2011 Melges 24 Worlds on Monday night with the Sail22 Support Trailer and a Melges 24. We hit the ground running and have the Sail22 Support Trailer set up and fully stocked to help any team. In order to support teams even more, our relationship with New England Ropes has grown with great new cordage in stock from now on and their logo on the Sail22 Support Trailer as a sponsor! We're ecstatic to have Ed's cousin, Bill Becker joining us full time at Sail22 to add even more support for teams. He's a great addition to Sail22!

In addition to being on site with the Sail22 Support Trailer, we will be providing live coverage of the mark roundings, finishes and blogging from the racing with Sailing Updates for the Melges 24 Worlds. If you haven't had a chance to it out yet, head over to Sailing Updates and see what it's all about. We're pretty proud of it and think GT3 Creative has done an awesome job making our ideas work! We've had some great feedback from the past events and know there will be many followers of the teams here in Corpus from all over the World. Look for great coverage on Sailing Updates by Sail22 (smartphone friendly even!) and Becky's photography starting soon!


Charleston Race Week Day 2 Melges 24 Practice Photos

DSC_2217Since racing was abandoned for Day 2 of Charleston Race Week 2011 for all fleets, several teams gearing up for the Melges 24 Worlds in a few weeks in Corpus Christi, TX decided to head out for practice. After all, a big breeze day in Charleston doesn't even come close to a light air day in Corpus! Sail22 headed out with Ed driving while Becky took photos for the day thanks to Andrew from Protector and our sweet ride on the new Protector 25. The Full Photo Gallery from Day 2 of Charleston Race Week is now posted. Alec Cutler's Hedgehog (BER 1), Brian Porter's Full Throttle (USA 749), Alan Field's WTF (USA 811), Kristen Lane's Brick House (USA 812) and Bora Gulari's Air Force One / New England Ropes ~ West Marine (USA 820) were all out having a blast. Definitely a great day on the water!

I made it out to cover all of the inshore courses and had a great ride with Andrew on Protector's new 25 foot boat. It's always wonderful to shoot from a Protector!
