There are a number of multihull regattas going on this week. Here in New England, we have the Buzzard’s Bay Regatta out of the New Bedford YC in Padanaram, MA. The BBR has always had a nice multihull class, featuring mainly Corsair trimarans, with many other cats and trimarans mixed in. There are many hundreds of boats in the BBR, with numerous classes and different courses.
In Germany, a Tornado Worlds event is going. Tens of thousands of people show up to watch these races, and the courses are set very close to shore for the viewers’ sake. Maybe this is what the San Francisco America’s Cup will be like? Which of course leads me to the fact that the first AC Grand Prix is this week in Portugal. More on that as it evolves this weekend.
