Transpac 2011

Posted by on Jul 7, 2011 in Sailing

The Transpac race has begun! The July 4th start saw light air, and Harry Zanville’s Kernan designed SC37 “Celerity” took a quick lead at the start. The fleet has been struggling with light air and having to work north to get into the gradient breeze. “Celerity” is furthest north and in a great position to get into the breeze first.

  • Div. 1
    • “Magnitude 80” – KYD designed a new 20′ draft fixed keel and optimized the boat to compete for the coveted “Barn Door” trophy. Tim is sailing with Doug Baker and crew.
