Well the Newport to Ensenada Race finally had some breeze, and though maybe not quite as windy as expected, certainly enough – 15 to 25’ish – to get the fleet in nice and early. Fist in with a ridiculously fast elapsed time of 7 hours and 40 minutes was the MOD 70 Orion, followed closely by the ORMA 60 Mightly Merloe, pictured above thanks to Da-Woody, less than 2 minutes later.
A bit of an odd handicap situation in the monohulls in PHRF, imagine that – saw The J/125 Timeshaver with Anarchist KMag beating the SC 50 Horizon with Anarchist Hippie onboard boat for boat, but losing to them on corrected time. They finished 1-2 overall in the fleet.
KMag will be sending in the story soon. There is tons more to tell about this race, so jump in this thread and tell it!
One story we are really curious to hear about is what happened to Dr. Laura on her pro-stacked brand new J/88. A DNF is all we know…
And now we actually know what happened!
