Pegasus Wins Waikiki Offshore Series
August 10 - Honolulu, HI
The 2005 Waikiki Offshore Series finished Saturday with two windward leeward races off Waikiki. The medium tradewinds and small seas were a welcome relief from the 8 to 12-ft seas and 35+ knot winds that challenged the racers all week.
Philippe Kahn's TP 52 Pegasus turned in a stellar performance with 8 firsts out of 9 races. Winning first in Division 1 and 1st overall to earn the King Kamehameha Trophy a hand-carved Koa wood replica of the Hawaiian sailing canoe Hokule'a. "I sail everywhere around the world and the conditions in Hawaii were the best: Winds from 15 to 35 knots and waves from 1 to 12 feet, tropical waters and unbelievably beautiful scenery. It doesn't get better than this!" said Kahn.
