... Saturday and Sunday, thanks to Surf City Catamarans, Jeremy Leonard will begin his OTW Anarchy trial by fire during the first true F-18 cat West Coast Championships in breezy San Francisco, streamed live from the St.FYC lawn with a juicy zoom lens and the full OTWA broadcast package. Like Clean with the sportboats, JC knows all these boys and girls, and if he can keep it entertaining, he'll earn the right to be the Producer of the new On-The-Water Anarchy West channel. From Jeremy:

We’ve been supporting sailing events here in the Western U.S. for almost ten years now. At any point, if we hitch up the Surf City Skiff, we have enough gear in the truck to run a regatta. We have helped organize hundreds of sailing events, and have gotten a ton of people onto the water in the process. We mostly focus on small, fast multihulls, because they’re fun to sail, and entertaining to watch; but we’ll sail anything. As far as taking the next step in promoting sailing, we think Clean is onto something with the very popular OTWA. The live feeds from remote beaches and the decks of chase boats all over the place add a new and interesting perspective. According to the number of views of the GT300 coverage, you were into it too! The coverage is unique, and it’s accessible to the masses at a relatively low cost to produce. The best part, it’s entertaining!

Surf City is happy to join the On The Water Anarchy team and will produce our first live feed from the lawn at the StFYC this weekend. We’ll cut our teeth on something that we know well, F18s. Sailors from Canada to the Mexican border will bring some whoopass to the West Coast F18 Championships, which will give bragging rights to the best F18 sailors on the Left Coast.

We’ll start our feed Saturday morning around 10am in an effort to get all of the bugs worked out; there are a ton of variables. Our truck looks like the cockpit of a 5o5 with all of the cables and gear, so getting it sorted is going to be a challenge. By afternoon, around 4pm on Sat, we hope to launch into some interviews with well-known F18 sailors Pete Melvin, Greg Thomas, Jacques Bernier and the rest of the crew. We have several F18 North American pioneers scheduled to tip a pint and talk some trash. Hopefully we’ll get special guests James and Cody from Furthur Ocean Racing to field a few questions. Come join the antics on the new West Coast Anarchy Justin.tv channel. Jump into the chat, heckle, or ask a question. See you Saturday, and check the thread for the latest info.
