Great 2010 Season

2010 has been a great year for the Open 5.70 fleet. This 19ft keel boat being built by Columbia Yacht in Santa Ana, California, is one of the fastest growing one-design fleets on the West Coast. The 2010 calendar has been full of great regattas in Los Angeles and in the San Francisco Bay with up to 15 boats on the line. Its simplicity, safeness and speed makes it a very attractive and affordable option for fun racing with a modern boat. Read more on the Open 5.70 North American Class Association website.

Flashback to LBRW

Jerome

Definitely the highlight of the 2010 Open 5.70 racing calendar, Long Beach Race week saw a record 15 Open 5.70s on the starting line. Open Sailing was there in force and had a professional videographer on a chase boat with a nice HD camera to capture the action. Many thanks to Jeff who trawled through almost 6 hours of footage and put together this little video.

Mini Month…

Jerome

November is turning out to be a big MINI month for Open Sailing:

- We are now counting the days until the first two Pogo 2 are ready to sail. USA 804 (Lee Malm) and USA 806 (Team Open Sailing) are racing to the water! USA 804 is currently a few boat lengths ahead and should be in the water around Thanksgiving break. USA 806 is anticipating more breeze in the next couple of weeks and will also be on the water before the end of November. Both boats will be sailed out of Southern California. We are now organizing TEST SAILS on USA 806. If you are interested in testing the POGO 2, simply EMAIL us. Test Sails aboard USA 806 will start in December. Production slot deposits are also accepted (20% refundable deposit) in order to get your boat ready for the 2011 season! Our goal is to race USA 806 so by testing the boat, you will be able to check out many sails change (cut by UK Sailmakers), a complete NKE Electronic package, full electrical and solar powered equipped.
