OK, let me make this clear; Rancho Deluxe won our division or said another way, we were 1st in class and 8th in the overall fleet!
I will get some pictures up asap, but right now it's fun to play on the beach and get 10 hours of sleep per night.
I would like to thank all of you who posted comments and or sent e-mails. It has really kept this thing alive for the crew.
24 July 2007 | Honolulu!!!
We had a great day racing yesterday!
We sailed all day then entered the Molokai Chanel at 11:00pm for a wild ride to the Diamond Head finish. Radio contact is made at 100 miles, 25 miles and 3 miles to go. We listened all night to hear about Tower but they had not reported in yet so we were optimistic.
Had a fun ride through the channel and then made the turn to the finish line, some of the more exciting sailing of the trip as we had 3 gybes with winds in excess of 25 knots.
We fininshed around 3:30 am and were met at the dock by Betty, Laura, JJ, Max, Ava, Eileen and Louise Diepenbrock...the last 2 being a complete surprise!
Once we cleared the technical and safety inspections we were given lei's and mai tais, kisses and more mai tais!
Oh yeah, we won our class.
