J/105s Prevail in Dave Wall Memorial Race

In one of the first sanctioned races in Santa Monica Bay in a long time, on June 13 the Pacific Singlehanded Sailing Association (PSSA) held its regularly scheduled single/doublehanded "inverted start" from Marina Del Rey to Redondo Beach and back. The 16.0nm course attracted 32 entries. The fleet included a pair of J/105s. The fleet was blessed with sun, good breeze and temperatures in the mid-70s F. In consistent wind of 14-16 knots that ranged from a beam reach to close hauled, Dan Murphy and Rob Dekker sailed their J/105 CUCHULAINN to the top of the leaderboard, more than two minutes ahead of their nearest competitor.
