This week our chief photographer, Luka Bartulovic, is spending time in Geneva, Switzerland at the C Class Championship, also known as the Little America's Cup. With 7 teams coming from 5 countries, this event may not be the biggest, but the lightweight, wingsailed, foiling catamarans that are out pushing their limits every day keep us glued to the action.

Luka is following the teams around as they spend the week racing in daylight and keeping the boats floating by darkness. Stay tuned to our Twitter and Facebook feeds for updates direct from the venue.

 
#Littlecup2015 Day1 Aethon Wing Rescue

On Monday, the first day of the #LittleCUP2015 the fleet was tested with harsh conditions, resulting in all boats requiring repairs for one thing or another. The most severely hit was Steve Clark/Michael Costello aboard AETHON. A bad gybe resulted in the loss of their wing, but they still continued sailing trying to finish the race. We were lucky enough to be close by on the gybe layline to provide assistance and pick up the pieces. No injuries were sustained during the loss of the wing and then subsequent capsize a few minutes later. #cclasscat #LittlecupGeneva Special thanks to Marco Versari and the folks from Swiss Sailing on the help with the wing retrieval.

We’re at the half way point of the North American summer sailing season. We’ve had some spectacular events in the first half of the year, including the Ottawa Skiff Grand Prix as well as both the Laser Standard and Masters’ World Championships. Some amazing conditions and exceptionally talented sailors made for great regattas to photograph. Recently we were at the annual Sugar Island Regatta with the International Canoe fleet as well as watching the skiff action of the 9er Canadians return to Kingston, Ontario.

The Sugar Island Regatta is an annual event put on by the International Canoe fleet with the American Canoe Association. The week-long event is based off an island in the Canadian Thousand Islands, with protected harbours and quick access to a spectacular race course this event lends itself to a relaxed atmosphere. The week is filled with competition on standard round-the-buoys racing as well as exciting races like the around-the-island race. With awards dating back over 100 years this event is an amazing week of sailing in a unique venue.

The 9er Canadians returned this year to Kingston, Ontario. This event acts as the Canadian Championships for the 29er, 49er, and 49erFX classes and gives the sailors a chance to demonstrate their skiff sailing skills in a world-class venue. This year the conditions couldn’t have been better, with the wind building to the high teens and low twenties every day with glorious sunshine and warm weather, Kingston delivered exciting and fast-paced racing within easy view of the shoreline.

In the second half of the season we are attending a number of events, starting with the CORK series of events. To see photos of the first half of the season, see our gallery pages.
