THE 49th TRANSPAC 2017 WINNER DIVISION 6
The TransPac 2225-mile race is from L.A. to Honolulu.
Unlike the previous two races, this year’s race had all classes starting in the typical TransPac race wind pattern: a westerly sea breeze to the West End of Catalina, followed by increasing breezes offshore and staying more or less at 15-20 knots the entire race. The fastest boats generally sailed in more breeze in proportion to the others since the breeze dropped slightly on the course after the first finishers in Divisions 1 and 3, hence their top finishes in the overall results.
Brad will share what he had to do to prepare the boat, prepare his his mental, emotional and physical self to sail and WIN his class!
