Big Pimpin’

c sprit bannerThe recent 2016 N2E Ensenada race off the Californian coast was a glorious downwind run in 18-25 knots of wind which held throughout the night. Three PHRF boats used a C SPRIT® and each performed well in the stiff breeze, covering the 125 miles in record time. Here is what they had to say:

“The C SPRIT® worked perfectly on Dare a Beck62.  We were hitting 17knots of boat speed broad reaching with the big  2,800 sf asymmetrical kite up. It has really simplified flying and changing our spinnakers.”  Bob Kettenhofen (Doyle Sails- Newport beach)

“We kept the fun meter needle way up over hull speed for hours on end. Rubicon III was very stable in the confused seas and the sprit made trimming the spinnaker and moving around the boat much more enjoyable.”  Rod Percival (Skipper – Rubicon III – Contessa 33)

“We had a great run and the C SPRIT® was a big help. Major improvements in boat handling and very similar to the recent Islands Race in which we took a third using the sprit in 35 knots of breeze.” Mike Price (Ullman Sailmaker & Skipper of Peacemaker – O’Day 39)
