The Gulf of Maine Ocean Racing Association (GMORA) is pleased to announce a new series and trophy. It's for single- and double-handed crews, with a focus on distance racing, and it's made possible through the generosity of Bruce Schwab, the first American to officially complete the Vendee Globe race.
The Ocean Planet Shorthanded Racing Trophy will be awarded to the eligible yacht with the highest CHIPS score that races with a shorthanded crew in GMORA sanctioned events.
I wish them a lot of sucess.
It is important for the big international solo and duo races to have more American sailors.
