Greg Thomas and John Williams, the US PanAm Multihull Team, schooled the NorCal 16 fleet with straight bullets this past weekend! Thomas and Williams are making their rounds and attending as many regattas around the country as they can in preparation for their upcoming trip to compete in the PanAm Games in Mexico.

Give 'em a little love HERE!

I tried all freaking day to get this shot with both of their sponsor's logos visible through the hulls. This is the best I could do.

Hah! Only the yout (Nate Brown) has the huevos to fly a rudder upwind in that stuff.

GT and JDub better get with that program or they'll never beat the 'ricans.

Nice photos, Jer!

Thanks, Matt.

That would be Nate's brother Ben with the rudder up. Nate's sailing with the young lady. Priorities! :D

They're both getting pretty darn good!

We're experimenting with that. Coming from the F18 class, that is how we do it and it helps on that boat, no reason it shouldn't on this boat. We're also only able to do it until it gets windy enough to have to travel the main, then I take the sheet back and he controls the main traveler.
