Well, with four out of the top five spots held by class vets right now, I don't know what to think! I do know that there is some major parity here - very different to Porto Cervo, actually - anyone can win almost any race. It's great racing, and Lauderdale is almost always great conditions, and we would LOVE it if our friend Kip Meadows, who we first met at Charleston Race Week back in 2007, takes this one home.

We're getting a move on, have some interviews to post, and then the usual action - except it will be commentated by Andy Burdick, president of Melges Sailboats. You got questions for Andy? Ask 'em.

You got some spare time today? Help me out. InNeedOfSomeRestraint one a 200$ pair of Kaenon sunglasses yesterday, today someone has to step up and do better. Don't give us links, give us content. Help call the races for those who can't see Kattack. Just be our remote producer...and win ONE MORE set of sunglasses courtesy of Point Loma Outfitting.

Also please go click on Ultimate Sailing above and buy a calendar or Ultimate Green shopping bag from Sharon. They are gorgeous and we love her support and her work.

Thanks all! We are headed to the boat...please click on our sponsors while we sit around...

Official Press Release:

MEADOWS OVERTAKES LOVELL AT THE MELGES 32 GOLD CUP

5 DECEMBER 2009

Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. - Day two of the 2009 Melges 32 Gold Cup supported by Henri Lloyd and hosted by LAUDERDALE YACHT CLUB offered somewhat of a shake-up in the results. Kip Meadows (Rocky Mount, N.C.) on roXanne now tops the crop by playing the day solid with a 6-3 score line to slide into the overall lead, a nice five points ahead of overnight leader Andy Lovell (New Orleans, La.) onRougarou. Lovell holds one point over John Taylor’s (Jupiter Island, Fla.) Ninkasi now in third.

Meadows explained after racing that finding a good lane was key. "We had two good starts so we went where we wanted to. RoXanne's tactician Andy Horton really put us in all the right places and made some really good calls." said Kip. "Sean Clarkson is trimming the main and made it much easier to steer through some of the really weird wave angles. Communication on the part of Dave Scott has improved our downwind speed tremendously." Meadows continued, "We've had a lot of fun over the last two days. Sailing is very much a team sport. When you look around at this fleet, at the owners, many of whom I have sailed against in other classes and having been a part of this class for 3 years, and the new boats that are known to be really good by reputation, and the ‘who’s who’ of sailing walking around on the docks, it's a really nice feeling to be doing well in such strong competition. But, there's more sailing to be done."

Overcast skies greeted the teams, as did an approaching front that handed down some tricky conditions for two additional races. Moderate breeze and comfortable temps with a little rain on the horizon set the stage for the first gun with a course bearing of 205. It was a clean start for the twenty-three strong Melges 32 fleet. Around first was fleet newcomer Phil Lotz (Newport, R.I.) onArethusa, followed by Joe Woods (Torquay, UK) on Red and Italy’s Lanfranco Cirillo on Fantasticaaa. Cirillo, with Daniele De Luca as tactician caught up quick downwind, as did Woods and fellow Englishman Stuart Simpson (London, UK) on Team Barbarians. Back upwind and down again for the finish, Woods managed to stay out front and win. Great strides on the final leg of the race by Marty Kullman (St. Petersburg, Fla.) on New Wave enabled them to take second, Taylor did well finishing in third. Cirillo kept in the game for fourth and Don Jesberg (Mill Valley, Calif.) on Viva rounded out the top five.

For what turned out to be the final race of the day, the breeze really softened, yet heated up once more for John Kilroy’s (San Francisco, Calif.) Samba Pa Ti Melges 32 as he led the fleet around the first mark. Trailing right behind was International Class President Jeff Ecklund (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) on STAR. Jason Carroll (New York, N.Y) on Argo, Lotz, Meadows and Alex Jackson (Riverside, Conn.) on Leenabarca followed respectively. Jackson made all the right moves back upwind, passing both Kilroy and Ecklund taking it to the finish line for the win. Kilroy settled for second, Meadows was third, Ecklund took fourth and Carroll, fifth.

Today was a very special day for the Lauderdale Yacht Club’s Junior Sailing program in which 23 of their top-notch youth sailors got the chance of a lifetime. The famous Take A Junior Sailing Daymeant that a junior sailor was placed on each boat and in the direcly line of hot competition. "I liked going fast and I had a lot of fun," said LYC's Wade Waddell who sailed with Rougarou. "I learned that if my boat has a lot of momentum, and if a boat tacks on me, I can just head up and still have a chance for a good race." Great smiles were greeted on the docks afterwards. Some of the juniors actually got to drive and went home with some great swag from the teams.

Tomorrow will be a pivotal day for the Melges 32 fleet with three races scheduled, a very tight points standing as we head into the final day (this isn’t over yet) and more moderate temps and breezes expected. Stay close to MELGES32.COM as there is definitely more excitement and incredible racing to come.

Top Ten Results
1.) Kip Meadows, roXanne - 10-6-4-6-3 = 29
2.) Andy Lovell, Rougarou - 3-1-9-7-14 = 34
3.) John Taylor, Ninkasi - 6-3-8-3-15 = 35
4.) Jason Carroll, Argo - 4-8-12-11-5 = 40
5.) Bob Hesse, Lake Effect - 2-15-5-8-11 = 41
6.) Joe Woods, Red - 9-19-3-1-16 = 48
7.) Lanfranco Cirillo, Fantasticaaa - 16-4-2-4-22 = 48
8.) Rod Jabin, Ramrod - 1-2-16-23-7 = 49
9.) Jeff Ecklund, STAR - 8-7-15-18-4 = 52
10.) Marty Kullman, New Wave- 17-5-6-2-18 = 58

Folks, stay tuned for some more vid. We've got a boat full of seasick computer folks right now, they'll be better in a bit to get up the small amount of video we have for you. The underwater stuff didn't work, waste of time but at least I got to experiment with shooting from directly underneath them - just couldnt' see anything but a silhouette..

Thanks for picking up the slack. Just got back after tending to my sick crew and doing a pile of interviews, including a long one with Alex Jackson about a bunch including future plans for Speedboat. We gambled on getting some really great footage and ended up missing a lot of the race, at the same time that Aaron could no longer look at a computer and Mer was down for the count too.

Big congrats to Rod and the team, pretty amazing results for them. Stick around...

Here's the gate rounding when Barbarians lost the kite and wrapped it around two different boats...best footage of the weekend I think...I think Aaron's head exploded as he was entering this one into the computer.

Oh Alan. Shucks. I LOVED your coverage this weekend but not as much as I loved Mer's pics. It truly and really and honest made my world a bit brighter having this gift of being able to watch this Regatta as I saw snow fall for the first time since 2004, knowing my place is up North for the next 6 months, maybe longer. At first I was a bit depressed about not being there (last year was great fun and sailing IS my favorite sport) but then was glad that I had some friends who cared enough to think about me and send their good lovin' my way. Yeah, whatever.


The Bimini Bay Bar IS something. It leaves a black mark on your soul that can never be erased. Luckily, we look smashing in black. How did you enjoy that $25 'free' beer? :blink: :lol:

Great coverage on this one! Very good camera work and you've boiled the content down to the stuff that at least I as a spectator like to see...

Thanks for all the hard work!

Clean, Mer, everyone. Really excellent job this weekend. That kattack tracker thing kicks ass. Made watching the racing very interesting. Cant wait for the next event, this one has made not studying for finals extremely entertaining and enjoyable.



Oh and for Christmas i want a 32

This is really cool - Kattack's got an amazing amount of generated data from the racing. What a great tool.

Thanks for the great coverage Clean, and Mer, as always, wonderful pictures. What about a regatta recap? Was the regatta won/lost on boatspeed/boathandling or tactics (I know it is hard to see from a motorboat doing 20kts)? How did the different sails perform (North/Quantum/Others)? Anything surprising from the new and the veteran teams? Any major wipeouts other than the Barbarians?

It was awesome to be able to watch it on Kattack live. GO ROUGAROU!
