Hawaii Racing Update
July 11, 2010
All the boats are off and running in this year's Pacific Cup now that the fast guys have started (on Saturday). We'll see how they fare with the unpredictable East Pacific High. As of Sunday, Trunk Monkey, the Farr 30 sailed by husband-wife doublehanders Skip and Jody McCormack, is leading the pack in good wind. If your memory stretches back as far as May, you'll recall that Skip on Trunk Monkey was first across the finish line of the Singlehanded Farallones.
Here are some photos from last week's starts.
Gary Troxel's Beneteau 423 Tiki Blue has returned to Richmond, Leland Flint's Peterson 34 Sea Reine is back home at the Greenbrae Boardwalk, and Plus Sixteen, Paul Disario's Olson 911, is on her way back home. To see where everyone is, go to www.ionearth.com/2010/pacific-cup.
While the Pacific Cup racers were starting, the Singlehanded TransPac racers were finishing. They are all in now, and the results have been announced. Adrian Johnson aboard the Olson 30 Idefix is the overall winner on corrected time. Max Crittenden's Martin 32 Solar Wind won the Latitude 38/Nelson's Trophy for best overall NorCal boat. Jeff Lebesch's Hammerhead 54 trimaran Hecla won for fastest elapsed time, and Sam Burns' Catalina 309 Southernaire won the Perseverance Trophy for the last finisher.
