Heeding the coast guard and race committees advice, approximately one third of the 2016 Pacific Cup fleet chose to wait offshore for tropical storm Darby to pass the Hawaiian islands before heading to the finish line at the Kaneohe YC in Oahu.
Being in the cruising division, the crew of “Bear Boat” a Jeanneau 40.3 passed their time swimming, fishing and, as shown in the photo and video, hitting USCG approved biodegradable “Eco” golf balls into the Pacific. Now that’s a large water hazard! Photo thanks to Dwayne Sullivan.
