This has been a good, competitive race and is just now in the closing stages. A Pearson Triton may take the whole thing overall.

The race tracker has been awesome.

Agreed, can't believe the race has gotten no love in the forums despite the couple of plugs in the front page. Go Turbo Camper!!!

Cal 40 lookin good for overall. Looks like H33 second to finish. Close and competitive in all classes. One of the best years in a while. Hopefully there will be a follow up (on the front page) when it's all over!

Great job Ronnie Simpson and a very nice article. The Moore 24 is an awesome boat. it was great to hear his (your) account of how far the electronics have come since I won it on a Moore 24 in 1980. I was using a sextant 3 time a day and carried a deep cycle battery for compass lights ,a knot meter, Auto helm, and a generator to keep it all charged and going. Glad Jeff Thorp (aka Elvis) helped you so much. his experiences with a Moore 24 would have gone back to my heyday. Again awesome job to all the competitors and to Ronnie for winning the hardest and most technical class to win.

Congrats to Ronnie for the class win and more importantly for the boat rescue. No way I could drive a Moore that long! ...might have won overall if he took a generator. "Hi-tech" (solar only) is not always the best way to go! I navigated with sextant on a Moore in the Pac Cup during 90! Won a GPS for the Navigator award. (which I took in the 92 race)
