Ocean Racing News

Only July 7th the biennial 2012 edition of the Vic Maui Race started. Anacortes Yacht Club spectator boats Mike and Carol Hebert's "Fairweather" and the "Wild Rumpus" watched and waved as the fleet drifted across the line with only 2308 miles to go. Head Pirate Stephanie Schwenk is aboard a 40.7 Beneteau "Bravo Zulu". She will be back in time for Pirate Camp in August, keep those registrations coming. For all the Vic Maui news check out their website. You can goto the racetracker and watch the progress every two hours.

The mighty "ICON" left Anacortes Saturday night to catch the ebbtide on their way to the start of the Pac Cup which starts in San Francisco in about 10 days. They will have multiple tracking devices and they will be updating their website daily (www.iconsailing.com)

Sunshine, wind and ocean sailing, I'm jealous!
