    What did OTUSA shoe crew, desingers and builders do

    Hopefully as the next few days go by we will get to hear from the designers, builders and shore crew telling us some of the changes they made to the boat. Teamwork was the other area that OTUSA improved upon on a daily basis. You could see it on the water and in the boat handling that they...

    Newberry Casey Olympic Campaign

    As we all know campaigning for the Olympics not only takes great effort and intense training but it also takes a great deal of money. After the 2008 Olympics Lovell & Ogletree had quite a bit of debt from the campaign. Sarah and John have set-up a website updating what their campaign is...

    For The C-Class Guys

    I have only been able to find 3-4 shots of the wing, but it looks pretty radical to me. What do Steve Clark, Blunted and Fredo as well as the other winged anarchists out there think?

    Steve clark Building a new C-cat

    I wonder if Stave would be willing to share some information about the new C-cat that he is building, his thought about the future for the C-Class and who is currently on the horizon to compete in the challenger series. I think that there is a British team, possibly Australian and who else...
