C&C 30 One-Design "Anema & Core" at Key West Race Week

January 23, 2016

Ennio Staffini brought his new C&C 30 "Anema & Core" to Quantum Key West Race Week for the inaugural C&C 30 One-Design Class event.  As expected, this event proved to be extremely competitive and the competition surprisingly close.  Chuck O'Malley from Chesapeake Sailmakers commented: "Races were won by feet and inches; coming into the finish in a non-controlling position could cost you 2-3 places for a given race.  I think, throughout the week, we may have been out of the money by a boat length here and there.  It was a challenging and learning event, we will be better prepared for the next C&C 30 One-Design Class regatta."   The class showed a mix of sail inventories from Quantum, North, Ullman and Chesapeake Sailmakers.  Anema & Core sailed with a full suit of sails by Chesapeake Sailmakers featuring Carbon Fiber Membrane Mainsail and Jibs along with Airx Nylon Spinnakers.  Chuck reported; "We were very happy with our boat speed upwind and down and were consistently competitive with the fleet and finished in the top 3 - 5 places in a few races. We learned a lot from this event, our team improved race by race and will be a much improved boat and crew for the Annapolis NOOD regatta in April."
