New Sail22 Support Trailer Wrap | Sail22 Photography - GT3 Creative

The Sail22 Support Trailer was in need of a little bit of a face lift recently, so we decided it was time to go for a full trailer wrap. We sorted through the Sail22 Photography photo galleries and came up with one photo of each of the different classes we work with on a regular basis to grace the sides of the trailer. Our friends, Cary and Beth at GT3 Creative recently purchased a large format printer capable of printing on wrap material, so it seemed like a no brainer for us. They do awesome design work and we use them for our web designs, logos, etc and highly recommend them. Tell them you heard it from Sail22! ;) We sent them our design and they printed and flew the wrap out with them to Culver, Indiana.

They arrived at Sail22 Headquarters late Thursday evening and started on the wrap early Friday morning. We had pulled the Sail22 Support Trailer into the Speed Barn, so they had a climate controlled area to work in. The wrap looked great from the start. We posted several of the "in process" photos on our Sail22 Facebook page if you didn't see them. Make sure you "like" our page while you're there to see our regular updates that do not make it onto the blog. We update it frequently!

Here's the official reveal! We couldn't be more excited about how it turned out and can't wait to show it off when we head south for the winter regatta circuit. Leave us a comment and let us know what you think!

Vincere Leads After Three Races in 2011 Canada's Cup ~ Sailing Updates Regatta Coverage

The Canadian Team Vincere, of the Royal Canadian Yacht Club, skippered by Oskar Johaneson leads the United States team from Macatawa Bay Yacht Club's Team Heritage, skippered by Bob Hughes in the first day of racing at the 2011 Canada's Cup being sailed in Holland, Michigan. Sail22's Sailing Updates is providing live blog coverage of the 2011 Canada's Cup with short video clips of the racing uploaded from the water. After day one of racing having "hurry up and wait" conditions leading to no racing, the teams headed out early with the possibility of four races on Friday. Team Heritage came out strong, winning the first race in the series, however, the Canadians quickly showed they came to put up a good fight and swept the last two races of the day. Team Heritage was able to play a left shift in the first race to lengthen the gap between the teams, but the right side of the course was where the most action was for the second and third races and Team Vincere did a great job of protecting it. The teams decided to not continue with racing after the three races and will resume the Canada's Cup 2011 Finals series on Saturday.
