Transpac 2018

Went down to Rainbow Harbor to check out the boats competing in this year's Transpac. Then on Monday went out to Pt. Fermin to watch the first start. Also saw Commanche doing trials - she is berthed in my marina, will try to get some pics of her today - wide stern does not even begin to describe her and boy does she fly. You might recognize "Loe Real" - the trimaran was built for the movie "Waterworld". Also have "Maserati", Disney's "Pyewacket", XP44 "Draconis" from Japan, and "Between the Sheets".

Re: Transpac 2018

From Thursday starts. Div 1 and 2, the big monos. This is just after the start, you can see Commanche in the center of the first photo. Hazy conditions as they moved towards the west end of Catalina which disappeared in the haze. The multis already circling for their start.

Multihull start, div 0. Chin Chin to the left near the start mark. Mighty Merloe, Maserati, and Phaedo near the committee boat. Loe Real missed the start for some reason, but in the second photo she comes up to the line.

Re: Transpac 2018

Congrats to "Mighty Merloe" on her new record for a Transpac on elapsed time at 4 days, 6hours, 33 minutes.

Watch for "Commanche" to come in this afternoon and set a new record for monohulls.
