Vic-Maui entries are up 50% for 2012.
The Vic-Maui entry deadline was yesterday, and 14 boats have filed entry papers and fees.
The fleet was 9 boats in each of 2008 and 2010; the 2012 fleet stands at 14 boats. We're pleased to see the fleet size bouncing back up towards previous levels, which for the 5 races from 1998 thru 2006 was an average of 19 boats.
The 2012 fleet is profiled at www.vicmaui.org/teams
The 2012 fleet composition is 9 Canadian and 5 American; 11 in the racing division and 3 in the cruising division.
a couple of dumb questions, what would be relatively normal amount of time for the return delivery on a moderately quick 50 footer --- just looking for a ballpark.
And the starts, I'm guessing the faster boats in the fleet will of course be the ones rolling out out closer to the 12th, right?
