From the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club:
Seeker, the pretorian 35 out of Mukilteo, is running first so far in the 2008 Vic Maui. This is now Day Six of the international ocean race and all the boats are far offshore.
Seeker is by far the smallest boat in the fleet. Yet, even with that huge disadvantage, skipper Kenneth Gref and his crew are maintaining amazing speeds and staying among the front-runners. That shows excellent boatmanship and strategic thinking.
Also, it looks like the long-standing record of 10 days, 2 hours set by Lahaina’s Grand Illusion is about to be smashed by Strum, the brand-new, carbon composite Riptide 50, that goes twice as fast as the other boats.
