Who is this Ronnie guy and why should I care? (Other than he is currently berthed in my marina).

The boat to watch is “Por Favour”, racing in this year’s Pac Cup. It is crewed by four Canadians from Vancouver Island and will be quite competitive in a really tough division. They made it across during this spring’s Southern Straits race without any battle damage (ultimately diverting to Nanaimo). Imagine 2,200 NM in a boat weighing under 5,000 pounds. And no flush plumbing!
