J/105 in Transpac Race

J/105 in Transpac Race

This years Transpac Race from Long Beach, California to Honolulu includes the J/105 Creative owned by Ed Sanford. Creative was in the first start July 8 and is doing very well after two and a half days. Currently his fleet is closely bunched, but on a handicap basis Creative is in the lead. Since the start, the fleet has been jib reaching in 10-12 kts winds. Soon the fleet will be spinnaker reaching where the J/105 excels. The faster boats start July 11 and July 13 at 13:00. This race is too early to predict but considering the good start this first fleet got, they my never be caught so stay tuned! Creative is carrying a code zero and a masthead spinnaker.   Track the progress
