The Midtown Cup, a series with 4 regattas sailed in Newport over the summer season had its grand finale last weekend. The last event was last the class North American Championship and with several teams joining during the season a few new names were seen high up on the score board.

Winning the series and the Championship was team Convexity with skipper Don Wilson and crew Taylor Canfield, Ted Hackney, Josh McCaffery and Kinley Fowler. However as the series went on the Chicago team so more and more competition. The last day of racing was won by Pieter Taselaar's Bliksem closely followed by Midtown Racing with Skipper Larry Phillips. For the series Jerry Kirby's Rule#1 and Bill Ruh's Pursuit had a hart fought battle for the podium ending on the same points with Kirby's team taking 3rd being scored higher in the last event.

"Competitive sailing in varying conditions made the M32 NA an exciting regatta. Positions 2 through 6 came down to final race. Once again the M32's proved themselves to be an exciting and relevant class in high speed racing." Comments Bill Canfield and Carol Ewing of the Race Committee. The base of the entire fleet was the Midtown Sailing Center where all teams can assemble the boats and be moored together. A rather unique location down-town Newport just next to the Midtown Oyster Bar.

The fleet is now moving south to Miami for the next event in October which is the National Championship and a warm up event for the Worlds in November. The fleet will be joined by several European teams. As travel becomes easier Miami is the perfect spot for the long overdue reunion between the American and European fleets.

The perfect Introduction - M32 Demo Boat

The M32 Demo Boat is the perfect way to get introduced to M32 racing in a way that is tailored to your background in racing and other classes. Maybe you have your own racing team and just need a few hints on M32 specifics; or maybe you need help with setting up an M32 experienced crew and start from the beginning with multihull racing.

This is the way most of our class members got introduced to the boat. The most common answer to the question "Why did you start racing the M32?" has always been, "I tried it, and then I was hooked." The demo boat will be available on most regattas to give you a chance to join the fun.
