Re: Eighty-year old wooden full keel boat beats new "Interesting Boats" in Transpac
Fantastic, I love to imagine Olin Stephens is smiling, somewhere... :-)
There's a lot to be said for a mizzen staysail in a Transpac Race, however...
In other Old Woodies vs. Carbon Fiber Fantastics news, the 66' Gunboat PHAEDO was dismasted early on in the race... I'd guess the price tag on that rig alone was easily in the neighborhood of $200K...
Extremely fortunate no one was hurt, in that deal...
You sure don't need a caption to imagine what he is saying! And I think lots of those words would get beeped out here!
