Jamaica Bound!
We had two great all-clear starts, both of which were very punchy. The PHRF class was actually a bit closer to the line than the IRC class, with a minute to go, but both were right on the line at the gun. Sjambok wanted the boat and got it, front row start with speed. Very nicely done, followed by a fight with Bella... Pita, second row at the boat. Rambler 100, Ken Read at the helm, did a very nice job of locking the fleet into the upper 2/3 of the line, and then put the bow down and rumble rumble rumbled to a leeward end start with speed and a LOT of room to themselves.

The PHRF class saw Musica, the Aerodyne 38, right at the boat, front row, with almost full speed, with Different Drummer to leeward. The whole class bunched into the top half of the line in a very tight pack. Good action, four or five rows deep.


Rambler, racing

Sjambok has officially retired. Crew is fine - boat is fine - wind and boat speed not cooperating this year so they are heading back

George David's rental, Rambler 100 finished the race at 14:53:52 with an elapsed time of 3D:01H:48M:52S well behind Titans Record of 2d:10H:24M:24S for the 811 mile race.

Close behind was Genuine Risk sailed by the USMMA with an elapsed time of 3D:02H:13M:02S, to correct out into 1st by Some 10 Hours, 9 minutes and 32 seconds. Karl Kwock's Beau Geste has also finished but time has yet to be reported, and should correct out into 1st.

They sure did. Check out the Kattack replay and you'll see right where they did it. Very nicely done.

Let me see if I can figure this out....

Incredible last leg of that race! Nice job USMMA! They broke the GR curse!

Keep an eye on the bowman, Matt Noble. He is going to go very far in the sailing world; talented and hard working. Already a world champion by the age of 20 in the I14's and now has two successful offshore sailing programs under his belt. The next project is boat manager for the All American Offshore Sailing Team.

Also, Wachowicz was navigating BG?!?! That is awesome to see him doing well. Matt started sailing as the mastman on Wasabi, Dale Williams' SF based ULDB 46. Brilliant mind and an incredible athlete. Too bad he couldn't run very fast... (haaaha)

I remember the old Savvy, think it was a Swan. My first trip to SF for a very light Big Boat where Savvy walked away with it. Also remember challenging some of the crew to a foot race, but bailing when I found out they were all track stars! Ahhh the younger days.

Good on the GR guys for the win.

Just looked it up; hadn't known that. Pretty cool to see that boat sailed and sailing well.

We got a treat during the (2005?) Big Boat series out here in SF when Hasso's z86 Morning Glory "match raced" GR. Incredible to see two monster canters bombing down the Bay doing short courses.
