So look - here's the last interview I'm loading now - it's Matt Noble and Matt Pistay - and then I'm going to get drunk. Very drunk. Got all the interviews we ran on the live feed this morning, as well as Rohan Veal, Amac, Don Martin, Paul Bieker - all great and all coming up, but not until much later. Also I'll get today's action clipped and embedded but again - much later. Ditto on Mer's pics.

Thanks for tuning in, and we'll be back as soon as inebriation allows.

Sorry - here;

Scott, I see you are reading this so if I forget later, the CST flags/teardrops are on your crate.

Final Day Press release from Michelle Slade:

=======
Gulari Takes Convincing Win In The
2009 CST Composites Moth World Championships


33-year old Bora Gulari handily took two races in the final day of the 2009 CST Moth World Championship, winning the event and becoming the first American in 33 years to win the title. Racing got underway about 11am in 14-15 knots, the lightest breeze of the week, in very flat water and under cloudy skies.

ďI canít believe Iíve done it,Ē said Gulari, from Detroit, MI. ďItís been a fantastic competition and everyone here has been great. I worked hard for this, and put in a lot of time training with George Peet and I couldnít have done it without his motivation. Heíd get me out there and keep me on it all year. It feels wonderful to be in top place. Arnaud is an awesome sailor and has sailed so well, and Nathan, well, heís the smartest out there on the course and he pushed me so hard. Itís been so great to sail with these guys.

Once he knew heíd taken the first race, Gulari turned the fun dial up and relaxed into the last race, enjoying the lead down the first beat. Missing a tack going into the top mark set him back about five positions and he rounded the mark behind Psarofasghis, Payne, Bergan and Outteridge, so was in top company for the first run. From back in fifth, the downwind sensation wound it up down the track to cross first for the final time in this competition, bringing his event wins to seven, almost half of the races sailed. ďRounding that mark in fifth, although I was in relax mode, I just took off, I donít know what happens but itís an amazing feeling to be able to run like I can on this boat.Ē

Dalton Bergan, finishing fourth, sailed a fast and tactical event, and along with Olympic Laser sailor Brad Funk, these two tidily supported the American effort in the top ten. Long the domain of the Australians and Europeans, this event has cemented the Americans as a force to be reckoned with in the international Moth fleet. The Australian Bladerider team also made a significant dent at the top of the fleet with four Aussies making top ten.

Top Ten Finishers Overall: Bora Gulari (USA) 24 points, Nathan Outteridge (AUS) 36 points, Arnaud Psarofaghis (SUI) 40 points, Dalton Bergan (USA) 49 points, Simon Payne (GBR) 66 points, Rohan Veal (AUS) 82 points, Scott Babbage (AUS) 100 points, Brad Funk (USA) 105 points, Rob Gough (AUS) 108 points, and Kevin Hall (NZL) 141 points.

Quotes from the Boats

Nathan Outteridge (AUS)
In the first race I got up to second behind Bora and it was obvious he was going to win so I was trying to cruise home in second and did a jibe, the foils stalled and I capsized so I ended up fifth which put me very close to Arnaud so the in the last race it was all on. When Arnaud had that massive lead and I was back in fifth I was a bit worried but I just kept cool and tried to sail back into the fleet. I climbed back to first at the top mark but then Bora just went past me again downwind. Heís going really fast and heís done a lot of work so his win is well deserved. When Rohan gave me the chance to come and sail with the Bladerider team and be involved in, I jumped at it because I had gaps in my 49er schedule and the Farr 40 stuff that I do. Everyone is asking me if I am going to make the 2010 Worlds (March in Dubai), and at the moment I have massive conflicts with some of my other events because I am going to see if I canít figure it out. Itís such an awesome event to be involved in. We have the Worlds in Australia in 2011 in Belmont, which is where Iím from, and one of the reasons I was getting into the Moth, so I will definitely do those. I just got into it two years earlier than I was expecting but thatís turned out to be a really good thing because I know what the level is and Iím not far off it, Iíll keep working away at it.

Arnaud Psarofaghis (SUI)
Iím pretty happy with the results. The first race I was behind Nathan and he capsized on a jibe so I took two points on him there so he finished fifth and I finished third. On the last race I decided I was going to just go for the wind and sail away from him so I could have some boats between us. I did a brilliant first beat and sailed very tactically to get to the top mark first, but when I bore away the wind was very light so I struggled a bit to go down, then I lost my first place on the last upwind because I missed the layline one more time Ė I didnít learn from yesterday Ė and Nathan finished one place ahead of me. I finished fourth in last yearís Worlds so Iím moving forward. This yearís been much more intense and the level is much higher than last year. This year was more about speed. This year there is about ten boats who could win a race versus four last year, so itís much more interesting. Every boat is going progressively faster so it was much more difficult this year.

Charlie McKee USA
(Sailing with a broken hand on the final day, an injury sustained during a crash on Day 4): My goal was top ten, I didnít quite achieve that (11th overall), but the people I was around racing were all amazing sailors and we had a great time. We werenít quite with the top Ė there were definitely different fleets and within each fleet everyone was having amazing racing. The top seven were much better than everyone else, and our 8th to 15th group was filled with fantastic sailors. We had some great duels which made it super fun. I think everyone felt that way throughout the fleet. When youíre in the 30s, you look around and you look at the names on the board and the caliber of the sailors Ė Iíve never been to a regatta like this, where thereís so much talent deep in the fleet. As the sailing improved during the week it got way harder for me. At the beginning of the week I was just rolling around in 12th place and Iíd look behind and thereíd be no-one there for a long way, and if I got a 14th or 15th, that was like getting a last. By today, all those guys from 15th to 30th, you make one mistake and theyíd mow you down. To see that thereís that kind of improvement Ė itís partly the steepness of the learning curve but itís mostly just the caliber of the sailors who are so good and only just learning to sail the Moth because itís so fun.

Simon Payne (GBR)
(Still wearing a knee brace today): It was fantastic consistently being in the top five and racing with the guys at the top. Today we changed lead among the five of us up and down the course, and it was just great. I thought I could have done a 4th but with Dalton leading that first race, there wasnít much I could have done. It was so close, and to have two Americans in the top 5, thatís fantastic.

Nigel Oswald (USA) (Event Chair, talking about the event): The numbers are down on last year but the quality of sailing has gone up significantly. The mix at the top of the racing was exciting, with the exception of Bora, there wasnít any one person winning all the races, as in the last few years there has been a dominant few at the top. Iím really happy with the way the event has turned out and now itís over, happy to be able to relax. Sailing for me personally was up and down but my preparation in a new boat has been negligible, and my main aim was to just try to get better throughout the regatta and see if I could get a couple of good races in. I had a bunch of low teens results on yesterday after some of these guys helped me get my boat set up my boat so I think Iíve met my expectations. Itís been great.

Andrew McDougall (AUS) (designer of the Bladerider and Mach2 Moth):
Iím usually the boat guy at these events but thereís not been too many issues which means weíre getting it right. I think thereís 14 Mach 2s at this event. Iíve always got spare parts with me, but thereís really been not that many breakages at all, so guys have been able to work on their game more than worry about their boats. Itís been a fantastic event with just such high level sailing, although speaking for myself, the conditions have been too shifty, Iím not keen on sailing in this kind of shifty breeze.

Glad you could be a part of it from so far away, Phil. As fun as this was, it'll be off the hook in 2011, of that we are sure. And there are few things that could keep me away from a 100+ boat Moth Worlds on Lake Macquarie - we'll see you there.

And this is super cool too - an interview with the NPR producer who came down to record for a segment that will run next Saturday. She's got some cool things to say, and some insight on how to make your class/event more attractive to the media:

This is really amazing stuff. I am just astonished by what you all guys are doing. The kids and not so kids batling on the water with those hell machines (I would like to see what any of us would be able to do riding one) and you media reporters keeping the rest of the world aware of what is happening in a place where internet is almost non existent. Simplhy amazing. Keep up the good work! You are doing history right there, right now.

P.


Actually, the town of Stevenson is broadcasting free wifi so strong it reaches the marina at Cascade Locks. The race course is in between the 2 points. In other words, this is one of the freakin best places in the world to have a regatta like this.

The Stevenson Wi-Fi project signal is insufficient to do anything with. It was only thanks to Saw.Net, the City of Stevenson, and the Port of Cascade Locks that we were able to live stream the video we did. They actually set up a transmitting antenna - a 60 degree directional TA unit - outside the port building at the water's edge on the WA shore. Then they set up a receiving (SM) antenna on the CGRA shed, with a long ethernet cable that went into a router, and then into my computer. Compared to the speed of the existing web in pretty much all of Cascade Locks, this connection was roughly 10 times faster. The antenna stays on the shed for future events ;)

As Mer and I sit here in the car outside the hotel posting stuff, we are trying to piece together the events of last night. But we did remember this part...Bora gets his trophy and makes a speech!







And I still have a few videos left.

1) The "boom of doom" attacks
2) 10 minutes with Rohan, VERY comprehensive interview
3) 8.5 minutes with Amac, equally awesome and informative. Fun to get both of the key people for the two boats that dominated the event.

Tune in later!

And an almost-as-long video of Andrew Macdougal. If you have any interest at all in these two guys, the future of foilers, and the future of the class, listen to the entire interviews. Some fireworks too from Amac - a truly genuine bloke.

And while I can't say too much for fear of destroying reputations, I can tell you that the post-race party was completely off the hook. Here's some video of the "Boom of Doom," which was actually the top section of a Moth mast converted into a 12 foot long beer bong. It saw long and hard duty last night.

This drive is taking a really long time...I think we made a few wrong turns in the Cascades. Were we supposed to look at the map before taking those unpaved roads?

Anyway, here's some more photos from day 5

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to all who were involved. I dont know how to explain the sort of relief i feel. To know that for all time i have put into the sailing, i can prove that I was the best, at least for one moment, and no one can ever take that away from me.

Already back in the midwest and cant wait to sleep for around 24 hours, some of my "friends" from home are trying to sick ISAF and the Beneteau Police on me now... Whats that song "aint no rest for the wicked"?

Quite the change of pace Mr. G - Flying moth to Beneteau-with-bedrooms.

Mer is busy in the car as we drive through Whitefish, Montana on our way to Glacier National Park. Just went through this place a few minutes ago, I hear there are some J/24s or something there...




Mer's getting her pics up as soon as she can - practice and Day 5 are posted already. Check 'em out and let her know if you have any special requests.

Where are you and your bride headed next? Melges 20's in Holland, 24s in TC? Charleston to try to remember what your bed looks like? Detroit for the Bora party?

Hey Squirrel, we are lazily headed back to the D for an unspecified amount of time. It would be nice to check out our house, but 100 degree air and 94 degree water makes August a bit tough in Charleston. We do have some hard limits; most likely we will be covering the Melges 32 Worlds in Porto Cervo for ten days in mid September, and then Melges 24 Worlds in Annapolis, which should be a full week of fully live sportboat racing coverage. Then I have no fucking idea what!

The Bora party will be impossible to miss. But in the mean time, I'm taking Mer to a really special spot; the far West side of Glacier National Park, where just outside the park there is an old logging road with a tiny mountain lake populated by moose, grizzlies, and a seemingly endless supply of beautiful native cutthroat trout. Then it's through the park, let Mer exercise her shooting finger for a few, then down to Missoula for some college town ambience.

And then it's Eastward, nonstop. See y'all soon.
