Sail22 Support Trailer

Sail22 named J/Boats Mobile Resource Team

Sail22 is excited to announce a new affiliation with J/Boats to further support all of our clients who own J/Boats. Sail22 has been supporting racing teams since 2007 with the Sail22 Support Trailer. The trailer is fully stocked with rigging, cordage from New England Ropes, Ronstan and Harken parts, custom designed parts, gear and accessories from Gill, as well as, tools for teams to use at regattas. Sail22 is also working with J/Boats Dealer, Stearns Boating, to support J/Boats owners and teams in the Midwest region for service needs, rigging and gear. As the J/Boats Mobile Resource Team, Ed and Becky Furry have over 25 years of combined racing on J Boats and will work with teams on a one-on-one basis for their needs.

Look for the Sail22 Support Trailer this winter season in Key West, Miami and Fort Lauderdale. The trailer will be stocked with all of your J/Boats needs to make your boat faster and provide service for any repairs or rigging. A video tour of the Sail22 Support Trailer will give you a even better idea of what you can expect to see at upcoming regattas. For the J/Fest Winter Series, the Sail22 J/Boats Mobile Resource Team will be located in Truman Annex and will be available starting the week before Quantum Key West Race Week 2012. Until Key West and after, the the trailer will be based at Shake-a-Leg Miami and will head to Fort Lauderdale for both of the Winter Series events, J/Fest Dead President's Regatta and the J/Fest Super Lucky Regatta at the Bahia Mar. To cap off the end of the winter season, the J/Boats Mobile Resource Team will be in Charleston for Charleston Race Week 2012.

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!

J80 Worlds 2010

We are in Newport, RI through this week for theJ80 Worlds and it's looking like an awesome event! Boats have been arriving and rigging in the parking lot at Sail Newport since last week. We've been busy learning about a new class for Sail22 and meeting great people.

We are looking forward to some great racing this week with over 60 boats registered. We'll be debuting a brand new version of Sailing Updates as well this week, since we've teamed up with our favorite design team of Cary & Beth Seigler from GT3 Creative. If you ever need a website or a redesign, they are the best! Check out Sailing Updates for live regatta coverage of the J80 Worlds in a very simple and clear new way. We can't wait to share it!

Sail22 has teamed up with Hall Spars & Rigging this week to service our clients in the best way possible. We have pre-made J80 rigging onsite and the ability to have anything you may need made during the event. We also are fully stocked with all of the J80 parts you may need to prepare or in case of breakdown. Look for the Sail22 Support Trailer at Sail Newport until Monday afternoon and then over at the Newport Yachting Center.

The J80 Class is also very lucky to have Paul Todd from Outside Images in town to shoot his exceptional photographs for a 120 page (13inx11in) book he is creating on the 2010 J80 Worlds. His 6-Metre Worlds book is beautiful and we're sure this one will be too. This post has a sneak peak at a few of his photos:
