no, they didn’t

The trimaran Tritium did not break the Transpac record – bummer – but they were first to finish at 21:52 PDT last night! Click on the picture above and do you see the boat way behind them? That is the 65′ Manatea which started something like 5 days ahead of them! And here they go ripping by them. Here is the latest from owner John Sangmeister:

As many of you suspect, the boat has sustained significant damage from contact with debris in the water over the last few days. We have been pressing the boat to beat the record. However, we are now exercising prudence and good seamanship for the safety of our crew and to not risk further damage to the boat. To finish first, one must first finish. We anticipate finishing at approximately 10 p.m. Hawaii time. Looking forward to seeing our loved ones at the dock! Photo credit: Will Oxley
