(October 15-19, 2007) The 2007 Audi Melges 24 US National Championship in Detroit, MI enjoyed a record-setting attendance with 53 hardened race
teams battling for the title on Lake St. Clair, Michigan during September 21-23. Instead of icy gales, teams sailed in 70-degree water that, at times, looked
more like Key West than Detroit.
Filmmaker Peter Crawford and his crew from
Penalty Box Productions were on hand to capture the action, and now
competitors and fans of extreme sportboat racing can order their
action-packed DVD of the event, which is bundled with extra footage from the 200 Fullpower Melges 24 World Championship,
held this past May in extreme conditions on the wind-swept waters off of Santa Cruz, CA. Enjoy the 4:34 minute tease below.
