My 86 Nordic 44 is balsa or ply depending on location. As Rasputin said, Norstar in Bellingham is the builder not Nordic Tugs. Steve Nordtvedt should be able answer your question on the 34. Give them a day or so the reply. These guys don't sit in front of a PC all day and build boats first, answer questions second.

This is your best answer.

It looks like J 133 Picante has a break down or just noticed that it will take them 18 days to get to Hawaii?

My Picks for Trans Pac 2015


Div 8


It will be a close race between the Jeanneau 44 “SLEEPER” and the Jeanneau 52 “Between the Sheets”. Sleeper sails to it’s rating very easily and will make few boat handling mistakes. Between the Sheets will sail a better course and this year fewer miles will win the race. I have to go with Sleeper on this one.



Div 7

Tough class to pick. Celerity could be first to finish this year, if they hold it together, the SC 37 is a fast boat and still not sailed too their potential. The J 44 Patriot is by far the best crewed boat in this class. You have to keep your eye on the J 133 Picante good consistent family team thats raced together for a long time. Its always difficult not to place your bet on a Hobie 33 these guys have put their time in. I would like to see the SC 37 win, but I am going to have to go with the Hobie 33, its the safe bet.


Div 6


I do not understand this class. Cazan will win easily with Second Wind in second.


Div 5


I am sailing on Horizon and will not comment. I would like to hear your thoughts?


Div 4


I know nothing about the Elliott 35 SS, Cresader35, but they have come a long way and I am sure they know how to dance. Three J 125’s in this class Resolute is double handed, Timeshaver has added heat to their program, Hamachi has Jonathan McKee. Bretwalda 3, the Rogers 46, is probably the boat to beat, although a sister ship Varuna has put their time in as well. Another close class to call, I am going to go with the McKee factor and pick Hamachi. This will be a very close race and fun to watch!


Div 3

The 70’s . I always go with Grand Illusion because this crew has been together the longest although I am going to play the pass card with the light winds this year. On the crew list of Holua is Peter Holmberg with an AUS navigator. Something tells me Holua will be going fast and eating well. Elvis is on OEX and the boat to beat this year because of the light breeze. 


Div 2


I will go with Wizard in this class and pulling for Bolt. I like all the kids sailing Bolt this year and wish them the best. It’s going to be a light year and if Zephyrs holds together they might pull something out of their hat.


Div 1 

Who cares, is this really a race? Even with no Honey Oats will bring home the money.
