    The Baby Giraffe Takes The 1st To Finish Honors!


    image © ronnie simpson / pacific cup media

    The Beneteau Figaro "A Fond le Girafon is the 1st to finish in the 2018 Pacific Cup,
    crossing the finish at 15:59 PDST or 12:59 HST! Congratulations to Charles Devanneaux and Mattieu Damerval!
    **************************

    Their last report from the water:

    DAY 11 - July 19 2018
    Here is a little update of the crew aboard :
    "This might just be our last mail from somewhere on the ocean. Our next one should be written on “terra firma”. About 180 nm to go, hoping to spot Hawaii on the horizon. The Race Committee estimates our arrival around 7pm tomorrow as the 1st boat to reach the finish buoy, but we are hoping to reach the buoy around lunch time. Our biggest competitor, of course, remains the all carbon STP65 with an all pro crew who left San Francisco with the last starters and is still threatening to steal our place in the line of honor. We are pushing hard on Girafon, we stay at the helm and bargain with the gods hoping the winds will not be as predicted: rapid changes in strength and direction. We are thrilled to be leading ahead of the usual suspects from our first race! I was not always positive that I would participate this year for many reasons.


    However, Beneteau blew everyone out of the water with their new Figaro 3. For us, crossing the finish line in Hawaii is already quite a victory after all the headaches we dealt with prior to the start. I met Matthieu about 5 weeks ago: highly recommended by two legendary sailors, very young and technically gifted. It’s his first ocean race and he had only seen pictures of Girafon before coming to San Francisco. When we met, I told him: “I am your age, but I have about 20 more years of experience. It should work out just fine!”.

    We found our “groove” quickly: a boat is only as good as her crew. He invested himself in the project fully and he worked tirelessly. He even took over my galley! We lived through a few shitty adventures, but those are the ones that make a crew: we have become brothers. When we finally cross that finish line, we will do so with the best memories. Right now, the kid is surfing at 12 knots through the waves: he can’t wait to get to Hawaii! He is thoroughly enjoying his last day at sea before the arrival buoy.


    I can’t thank him enough: his heart has been in this from the beginning! And of course, our baby giraffe with her little orange legs was born under auspicious stars. I stepped on that boat exactly one year ago in Saint-Gilles Croix de Vie and now we are almost in Hawaii! Hard to believe! Being the test pilot of that project has been an honor. The boat is good, we feel good in it and safe at all times. In about 2 weeks, she will make the crossing to Long Beach in a container, on a cargo ship, but she will be back next year for the 50th Transpacific Race between Long Beach and Diamond Head (HI). That’s it for now. See you soon! Charles. "

    Notes From Boats July 21

    Hula Girl checking in.

    So we are some eight days into the 2018 Pacific Cup. We have about 500 miles to go, which should be a touch over two days. After the super slow first couple of days getting away from the California coast (due to an atypical low that developed right in the middle of our racecourse), we've got moving and subsequently have had moderate breeze for most of the crossing.... lots of stuff in the 12-14 knot range. Enough to keep us moving, but not enough to really fire up the Hula in th Girl. It did get a bit light and sloppy for a while this afternoon, and heaven help you if you get caught in a 'glue pot' behind a squall, that's a real show stopper for a couple hours.

    So the first couple of boats have finished earlier today, and the onslaught of small boats (the early starters) should hit tomorrow and Sunday. We are leading our division towards the finish comfortably.... BUT getting to Hawaii first is not enough, we have to 'make time' because of our handicap. So we continue to push and race, trying to put enough miles between our Hula Girl and the rest of the fleet. RIght now, we think we are looking pretty good for a third place, with a possible shot at second. There is still a lot of racecourse left, and we are feeling fast. Speaking as a coach, it really is gratifying to see how much everyone has improved. Early on, we usually expect to see performance in the range of 80% of polar/potential. Getting this above 90% is a challenge... and I'm happy to report that we were consistently sailing at 95% earlier today. Pretty sweet for a team that for the most part had not sailed together before last week. So I have revised my expectations and.... 100%, here we come!

    So our speed is good and I like our positioning on the racecourse relative to the competition. Our biggest problem? The crew in the cockpit just keeps cracking up. telling stories and having too much fun. They are distracted, and it's annoying. I'm off watch and was trying to sleep but they just kept yucking it up until I had to go out there and yell at them and tell them to get serious. Absolutely kidding here, of course, and in all actuality, it is very cool how much fun everyone is having. Seriously wouldn't matter at this point if we were the last boat to Hawaii (no Jimmy, we can NOT continue on to Tahiti), in fact I think everyone would welcome the extra sailing days!

    Life onboard good. Had dinner a bit ago, watching the sun slip toward the horizon at the moment, expecting a pretty sweet sunset. The 'sunroof' is open and we are airing out the boat a bit, and yesterday was a big shower day for the crew so we are actually pretty civilized. Jimmy 'Peterbuilt' is crashed out, 'Mac Truck' Mike J. just powered some gatorade in the galley then hit his bunk. Bryan is driving, Dave trimming, Russ grinding. It's all good. I'm going to hit send here and get up there to take some pictures... it's an amazing evening. This Pacific place is all right by me.

    Ok, more soon....

    Wayne Zittel and Team Hula Girl

    ******************************


    We are well into squall territory now. we watch the horizon and track their progress as they catch up to us. a couple days ago they were coming in from behind and to the right. they moved along and started tracking us exactly so that they would pass on either side. a little over a day ago they clocked around and now come from behind and to our left. the waves build, it gets colder and the wind jumps 8-10 knots up to the twenties. i think someone was driving in 25 knot winds for awhile. we dealt with about six squalls just last night but managed to keep the spinnaker up through all of it.

    in the ongoing competition for fastest speed, Simon hit 15 knots last night which takes the prize so far. that carrot is pretty far out on the stick for the rest of us at this point.

    Simon drove some sustained 22 kts in the complete dark last night as the clouds blocked out the stars. speaking of which we have the moon to help until about 0200 which is just striking. the reflection on the water extends to the horizon like an inviting road. once it sets out come the stars. the Milky Way is very clear and the constellations are easy to pick out.

    we have had several rainbows, some of which were double. one had the colors extend beyond the horizon and proceed half way to the boat. during the day the 360 degree view gives endless varieties of cloud formations.

    we are also into the squid and flying fish zone. Michael considered biting a chunk out of one 8 inch fish but decided against it at the last moment. a picture caught his excitement at fresh fish mid ocean. Susan had the closest encounter. she got a glancing blow to her cheek from a flying fish that jumped into the cockpit in the middle of the night. it sounded pretty weird when she said, "i just got hit by a fish!" certainly a unique mid pacific experience.

    our course seems pretty well worked out by a combination of Expedition routing software and the limitations of directions available to us while we drive downwind on an asymmetric kite. the wind is generally down during the day which is frustrating but we are able to keep rolling along and there are also long stretches of 13-15 kts which are a joy for the drivers.

    if all goes well, we get in Wednesday next week. phone calls to loved one then.

    SV IGUANA

    *********************

    Last night we dropped the kite, went to the jib and jibed onto port. We were sailing 50 degrees high of our best VMG to the finish. After the jibe we were closer to dead downwind and right on the layline, so poled out the jib for the night. This AM we were able to suggest setting a kite, again. Wind is up and down and twenty degree shifts with passing squalls so this kite is the most flexible. And, there be stories to tell about getting a kite up on this boat.
    Paul asked the question, "Just how close to Kaneohe are we?" Then provided the answer..."Mai Tai close!"
    Looking forward to virtual cocktails with Linda on Wednesday via Facetime or What's App.
    Just off watch, so bedtime for this boy.

    Position at: 20 Jul 2018 17:00 PDT 25° 14.32 N, 150° 34.95 W, 455.1 NM to finish
    Distance (last 24hrs): 142 NM
    Warren writes:
    It's been a while since I sent a blog update. Eliana is loving the "shy kite." In winds of about 15kts apparent, with a following swell, she will "catch the wave" and sail much of the time at 8kts plus, with 9kts for 5 to 10 seconds at times, and once in a while we see 10. When this happens, Eliana, doesn't feel like a heavy Morgan at all. It is only for short period that everything lines up and we can sail like that, but when it does, it's quite a rush. We also got hit by a couple squalls with much higher winds with the kite up. Much less fun. It was work to keep Eliana standing up, and we end up sailing whatever direction the squall wants us to, but Eliana kept us safe. At times it took full rudder to control her course and we would still round up, but we never broached. We made our first jibe 2 nights ago. It happened after a lift turned us to about 40 degrees away from Kaneohe. There was discussion (argument?) about whether wind would shift back or if this was the new wind direction. It was just before sundown, so whatever we chose we would be stuck with it. I made the call to drop the kite, and sail with the Genoa until morning, giving the driver the ability to jibe back and forth if necessary all night without the complexity of jibing the kite. We have been on the new jibe since then. The race is still close. It looks like there is a good chance we will end 3rd in our division. There is a much smaller, but real chance we could end 2nd or 1st. It is a very close race, against 3 boats much faster then Eliana.
    Editors note: Reportedly, Highlander has broken her boom, forcing them to sail by headsails only. Everyone is well aboard, but they are going more slowly than Eliana and dropping to 4th.

    Hi all,
    Hot, mostly blue skies, deep blue water - the only thing we're missing is the strong trade winds. Winds early in the day are sub 10 knots and so far in the afternoon they've been in the low to mid teens. We can only seem to find stronger winds near small squalls. However, we keep trying to get the most out of the boat. Unless we see more consistent trades throughout the days ahead are arrival will be delayed. We're aiming for the shortest possible course, we just need the winds to cooperate! The same can be said for the fish. We've had lines out each day and so far our catch consists of some netting. Not sure that goes so well with wasabi.

    Just to expand on my earlier post, we've finally hit "Pacific Cup conditions" - sunny, hot, deep blue water, downwind sailing in big breeze for mile after mile. It's why sailors do this race. To have it come on the day of our half way party made I even more special. We've got lots of pics and video, but most of that will have to wait until we get to Hawaii and have real broadband. We hope everyone is enjoying following us and we hope to be to Kaneohe by Monday or Tuesday.

    Aloha,

    Tracy and crew

    Team Poke and Destroy Day 11 Pacific Cup Race Update

    By Dennis Palmer, Team Poke and Destroy Communications Manager
    7/21/18

    There was a re-shuffling of the leaderboard last night in Division C of the Pacific Cup Race to Hawaii. The boats to the north of the fleet benefited from stronger wind. In first place now, the J/92 Zaff covered 171 miles in the past 24 hours, and has 606 miles to go to reach the finish line at Kanoehe Bay. Sweet Okole, the furthest boat to the north, is in second place, sailed 191 miles in the past 24 hours, the most of any boat in Division C. She has 553 miles to go to the finish.

    Poke and Destroy continued to follow the rhumb line and was the southernmost boat in the Division about 59 nautical miles south of Sweet Okole. She slipped back from first place to third, sailing 164 miles in the past 24 hours. Poke and Destroy is 559 miles from the finish line, and is predicted to finish late in the day on Tuesday, July 24. Her deficit to the leader Zaff was 2 hours and 25 minutes as of 7/21/18 at 9:00 a.m. PDT.

    With the winds following the curve of a big high-pressure system to the north, they will turn left over the next few days, so the boats will not be sailing dead down wind. This benefits Zaff, which is not well configured to sail at deep wind angles.

    The finishers of other divisions have started to arrive at Kanoehe Bay Yacht Club.

    **************************


    Day 10 Aloha Update

    After a great night blasting down waves and making great speed heading almost straight at the finish line, the rug was pulled out from under us. The wind shut off and it turned into a very long day doing 6 knots. The only saving grace is the swell is currently behind us so it is in fact pushing us to the finish, even if the wind refuses to. The light air was a big surprise to us because our model and weather info predicted 13 knots and we only saw 7 knots. When we did see the occasional puff of 13, with the swell direction where it is, we would comfortably do 8-9 knots with very little effort, unfortunately that was very rare yesterday.

    We did gain a little on the boats in our vicinity while the boats behind us gained on us as they brought the breeze with them. Unfortunately, as we mentioned earlier, having sat in the light air for another day has added a lot of time to our overall race duration which means we will owe the fleet even more time. Nothing we can do about that now but to keep pushing the boat and battling for every mile and try to cover the time.

    The highlight of the day besides the sunshine was a delicious Pad Thai dinner cooked by Brian, he even made his own peanut sauce to improve it. Having planned for a ten day race for the last year, today is day 10 and we are still 534 miles to go, which means we are going to start getting creative with our remaining meals, lack of clean clothes, and water supply. I mentioned a few days ago we had plenty of food and we still believe that to be the case, the meals just may be bachelor pad specials such as canned tuna with a side of peanut butter, or a chocolate snack pack with a side of triscuts garnished with trail mix. Fortunately for us we have plenty of time to sit and ponder which meal combination we will dive into next.

    Most importantly we had planned a big birthday celebration at the Kaneohe Yacht Club for Joel who turns 30 today! We expected to be pulling in today but that will have to be delayed for a few more days, we do plan to sing happy birthday to him and he can blow out a match on top of a Cliff Bar. Happy Birthday Joel!

    We hope you all are having a great weekend, we can guarantee you we are all still having fun and look forward to selling the boat and getting into RVing upon arrival in Hawaii (Only kidding). Think windy thoughts for us out here! -Aloha.

    I would have never bet that the Figaro Foiler would make it in one piece, yet alone ahead of all others.

    Congrats, but the rating seems wrong, maybe should have been lumped in with Rufless's division?

    JULY 21 RACE REPORT

    Saturday sees more than just great racing in this 20th edition of the 2018 Pacific Cup. It also brings celebration, embrace of loved ones, relaxation and a reprieve from the elements. The first two boats, A Fond le Girafon and Prospector finished Friday while Bacon Berger and Wolfpack arrived over night, and as of this writing we are preparing to welcome in the fleet’s first sled, Runaway in the next hour or so. Meanwhile, the vast majority of the racers are still out there on the course and entering the final and most critical sections of their race.


    Two division leaders are coming in hot and should be finishing in the middle of this afternoon, both securing resounding victories over tough competition. First up is Roy Pat Disney’s Andrews 68 Pyewacket, who is currently blazing a path towards Kaneohe at close to 15 knots in breeze that doesn’t look like it’s going to let up, making for a quick finish for these soon-to-be BMW of San Rafael E division champions. Coming back year after year after year in both the Transpac and the Pac Cup, Pyewacket is a truly admirable program. Constantly optimizing their Alan Andrews designed sled, the boat is always in immaculate condition and crewed by the best of the best. With a 5-time Olympic medallist, a trio of Volvo studs and some of the top pros on the west coast, many of whom have been sailing together for decades,

    Pyewacket is a class act and represents a beautiful expression of the Disney family’s passion for yachting. Second place in the E fleet has been scooped up the Shelter Island Transatlantic Partners’ Mark Mills designed 68’ mini-maxi Prospector, who finished up just before sunset on Friday to evening to be the second boat into Kaneohe and to secure the fastest elapsed time in the race, at 7 days 6 hours and 50 minutes. Due to the differences across the rating systems and pre-race sail inventory decisions, Pyewacket is again not eligible for overall corrected time honors, and so with a second in division finish, Prospector remains on top for overall Pacific Cup honors. As of this writing, Hector Velarde’s Andrews 70 Runaway is steaming into the finish to secure third in division, though first sled over the line.





    The fleet’s only other Friday finisher was Charles Devanneaux’ Beneteau Figaro 3 A Fond le Girafon, who finished just after 1 pm local time to become the first boat over the finish line. The two Frenchman, including co-skipper Matthieu Damerval, sailed into Kaneohe with an elapsed time of 11 days 4 hours 24 minutes. Having led the first wave of starters from the get-go, the all new foil-assisted monohull blazed a fast path to Kaneohe to make history in this great race. On the 20th edition of the Pac Cup, the first ‘foiling’ boat in the race’s history led wire-to-wire and was first over the line. It may not mean much in the overall rankings, owing to the boat’s ‘experimental’ rating, but when looking back at this year’s race, A Fond le Girafon surely won’t be forgotten anytime soon. Sailing to raise funds and awareness for the ALS disease, skipper Charles Devanneaux has now completed four Pacific Cups, and we look forward to greeting him upon arrival of his fifth. Bravo boys! Superbe!


    Coming in over night was the top two boats in the DH2/ Mount Gay Rum division with Wolfpack and Bacon Berger both arriving around 4 am and 1 am respectively. When Bill and Melinda Erkelens sailed their Donovan 30 Wolfpack into Kaneohe for their third and perhaps final time, they did it again as champions. Though they fell way back in the rankings for much of the race, their long-term strategy of investing in the south paid off massive dividends at the end as they came in with stronger pressure and steadily climbed the leaderboard and took control of the division. To win however, they had to beat the wicked up little Antrim 27 Bacon Berger, who sailed lights out all the way across the Pacific to claim a close second place in division finish, and third boat over the finish line. For Kaneohe Yacht Club Commodore and co-skipper Frederic Berg and fellow member and skipper Mike Bacon, this will be a great moment at the club above all other great moments at the club. Sailing all the way up to the Bulkhead in the middle of the night, the pair were greeted by a great crowd of family and friends for some well deserved mai tais. Lester Robertson’s Moore 24 Foamy still remains solid in third place with well over a day to left to finish.


    When the first boat in this year’s highly anticipated DH1/ Pau Maui Vodka division surfs into Kaneohe, it won’t be the boat that many originally expected. Don’t call it an upset however, Express 27 fleet insiders have been predicting Andy Goodman and Julia Paxton on Loose Cannon to be very tough to beat, with many indicating that they were indeed the smart money choice. This writer will admit to thinking Motorcycle Irene was nearly unbeatable, especially when they had a massive boat speed advantage in the early sections of this race. Friendly family rival Loose Cannon proved to be more than a match for the perennial Express fleet champions however, and we can’t wait to welcome them in after a phenomenal race! We look forward to greeting both boats late tonight and hearing in their own words how the race transpired. Second placed Irene has a solid cushion over Fired Up!, Alternate Reality and YETI, who are all in a near dead heat to claim the final podium position.


    The Alaska Airlines C division is still very hotly contested, where the leaderboard has seen a massive re-shuffling in the past twenty-four hours. Phil Wampold’s J/92 Zaff and Dean Treadway’s Farr 36 Sweet Okole have taken advantage of their northerly position, relative to their competition, to to make gains as the breeze went soft. The division’s most southerly boat, Poke and Destroy has slowed down south, and as the breeze settles back in, the northerly boats may benefit from a better angle into the islands. Still, the top three are correcting out to within two hours and forty minutes of one another and with three extremely well sailed boats that each excel in a variety of different conditions, the highly anticipated C division looks set to come down to the wire.


    Rufus Sjoberg and his misfit crew on Rufless are beginning to firmly solidify their place in the record books. When the Reichel/ Pugh design firm was contracted to design the Melges 32 sportboat, Category 1 ocean races were pretty far down the design brief. This dedicated one-design buoy racer has been refined and massaged by renowned Bay Area boat builder and part-time Volvo Ocean Race shore crew and pro sailor Rufus Sjoberg, over a period of years now. Raising havoc on the local San Francisco offshore racing scene, we’ve been waiting for years to see Rufless fully live up to her potential in the Pac Cup. After the nuking conditions of 2016, a more tamed down approach with a smaller sail plan and a slightly slower handicap look to have paid off in 2018. Also, the comparatively lighter conditions likely played into their hands. Greg Mullins’ Farr 52 Zamazaan remains in second place, though now five hours back with J World’s Hula Girl beginning to breathe down their necks. Look for Hula Girl to make gains on second place, while Chris Kramer’s Columbia 32 Six Brothers looks to have slipped back in potentially lighter air south of the fleet.


    Coral Reef Sailing Apparel A division is beginning to sort itself out with Jim Quanci’s Cal 40 Green Buffalo well atop the leaderboard and Rebecca Hinden’s Express 27 Bombora about four hours back on corrected time and looking like a shoe-in for second place as these top two boats are just 30-36 hours out from the finish. Behind them, the Morgan 382 Eliana and the Cal 40 Highlander are duking it out, though Highlander is going ultra low and slow to the finish, as a result of their broken boom. Weems and Plath B division still sees Karl Haflinger’s J/35 Shearwater atop the fleet with The Fugitive, Alessandra, Free and Imagine duking it out for the final two podium spots. The cruisers begin to line up their approaches with Matt Solhjem’s Hanse 505 Anaďs leading the charge as sistership Outremer is about 10 hours back.

    The media team is on the ground, working hard to bring more coverage to your browser with drone video of the finishes, dock arrivals, on-dock interviews and more. Be sure to check out our Facebook and Instagram feeds for all of the content, and you can see yesterday’s full video recap here.

    Aloha,
