Santa Cruz-Based TransPac 52s Take Corrected-Time Honors in TransPac
July 27 - Honolulu, HI
Roger Sturgeon's three-year-old TP-52 came
from behind to beat Philippe Kahn's brand new TP-52 Pegasus
for corrected-time honors in the 43rd TransPac. Kahn owed Sturgeon
3 hours and 50 minutes, but was only able to build a margin of
39 minutes. According to Sturgeon, who also corrected out first
in last year's Newport to Bermuda Race, they had no idea they
won until they crossed the finish line. They had been too busy
surfing down the waves of the Molokai Channel at up to 23 knots.
Morning Glory, which took first-to-finish honors, was
also first in last year's Newport to Bermuda Race.

If this is you, the Surf Queen of the Ha-Ha, riding the point at Bahia Santa Maria, the second stop in the Ha-Ha, could you please contact Richard via email? We've got some Ha-Ha surf questions for you. And yes, we're still sorry for nearly killing you by catching that wave in the dinghy and ending up in the rocks. But that's history, right?
