Bob
(from Bob) I had a great race to Hawaii. I had great crew. I think we worked well together and I am please with the results.

David was on his first long ocean race. He found a job and did it well. He was in control of the guy for Spin hoists and drops. It was great to have consistency there. He also got to drive a bit which was great as it was a new boat for him.

Javier was the most enthusiastic of all. This was great to have on board. He also took on the foredeck and was a great asset to have available during those exciting spinnaker adventures.

Hendrik was a fantastic driver. He could get the boat into the groove and drove for hours at a time. I think he finally did get enough as towards the end he mentioned some soreness. He also was not shy about declaring the Airex 700 his favorite spinnaker.

Nathan was fantastic on all parts of the boat. He put in extra hours repairing spinnakers, navigating, and always knew what needed to be done in those crisis moments. He also did an excellent job of getting the boat trimmed to sail well. I remember on particular night when the boat would not round up. It was unforgettable. I learned a lot about boat handling on this trip from Nathan.

I had a great time and earned the nick name Captain Shredder.

Congratulations on a 3rd place finish. My boys and I are proud to have a trophy. THANK YOU 2012 Pacific Cup Race Crew!!!
