Warm and Wonderful
was two days of wonderful sailing between Diamond Head and Koko Head
for the 2008 Waikiki Offshore Series sailed August 2 & 3, 2008.
The event is more a local race in even years and an international event
in odd (Transpac) years. This year John Spadaro’s Bashford 41 Boomerang
won with four 1st and one 2nd in ORR and PHRF scoring of the five race
no throwout regatta. The event was sailed in calm (By Hawaii standards)
seas of 2 – 4 foot and winds of 8 – 20 kts.
Using a mid course start finish and five mile legs, PRO Joe Cochran
and his team set a perfect course to take advantage of the winds, seas
and the spectacular scenery.
