Transpac 2015 Start 3 Highlights (published on Jul 18, 2015)
Transpac 2015 updates:
Transpac 2015 Race News: Strange rainy weather and light southerly breezes greeted the fastest boats in the fleet for the third and final starting day of the 48th biennial LA-Honolulu Transpac on Saturday, as the first wave leaders passed the halfway point to Hawaii, and the second wave started to slide out of the light air slump on their second day of racing. While this was bizarre weather for July, it did not discourage dozens of spectator boats assembled in everything from kayaks to cruise boats to watch the two starts held off Point Fermin in Los Angeles. First off the start line at 12:30 local time were the three Gunboats in the multihull class, just able to get moving in the light air off the start line, but as a puff from the south rolled in they were quickly off. Pat Benz’s bright green GB 66 Extreme H2O took an early jump off the start for being the only boat with a masthead genoa, but Lloyd Thornburg’s bright orange Phaedo, another GB 66, was holding close once the breeze filled in a few knots. source: Race News
