IT’S NO ILLUSION—A CAL 40 MAY WIN TRANSPAC OVERALL AGAIN

LOS ANGELES—There is still a lot of sailing to do, but a scenario is
taking shape for a fairy tale finish to the revival of the Cal 40 class in
the 42nd Transpacific Yacht Race to Hawaii.

Would you believe, just like the good old days, first place on overall
corrected handicap time?

Stan and Sally Honey are sailing their own Illusion, accompanied by a couple
of other Transpac legends: Skip Allan, who won overall with Holiday Too in
1967 and Jon Andron, who sailed Argonaut to the fastest Transpac ever by a
Cal 40 in 1969, the third consecutive year that the breakthrough creation of
designer Bill Lapworth and builder Jack Jensen had claimed that honor.

James Denning did it again with Montgomery Street in 1985, and now here
comes Illusion with a nine-hour lead in corrected time and 572 miles to go
in the 2,225-nautical mile race. Bill Turpin’s Transpac 52, Alta Vita, is
second and Peter Johnson’s J/160, Maitri, third in the calculations from
positions reported in Friday morning’s daily roll call.

To sweeten the prospect, Illusion, which had a five-day head start, also is
projected to finish on Monday ahead, boat for boat, of Philippe Kahn’s
Pegasus 77, the Division 1 leader, and Roy E. Disney’s Pyewacket, the boat
Stan Honey usually navigates. That is still too soon to call with
confidence, however, and at the moment it appears that several other boats
that also started July 1 will finish in front of the Cal 40s, although
they’ll owe the latter a ton of handicap time (the boats’ ratings may be
checked at www.transpacificyc.org/03/tp03-ratings.html.

Mort Andron, Jon’s father, is following the race the contest closely. He
raced Argonaut in ’67 and this week recalled meeting Jon at the Ala Wai
Yacht Harbor after the victorious finish in ’69.

“I flew over to meet them, and when I was standing there on the dock a
reporter from the Honolulu paper thought I was Jon and started asking me
questions.

“How was the race?”

“It was a great race.”

“How long did it take you to get here?”

“Oh, about six hours.”

Some of the boats out there this year aren’t having many laughs right now.
Vicki, Al Schultz and entertainer Vicki Lawrence’s Andrews 70 from Long
Beach (she isn’t on it), was one of the boats that bet on a shorter, more
northerly route than the current leaders. Now it’s too late to change.

“We continue to be the definition of ‘leverage,’ ” a message from the boat
said Friday. “The wind direction has given us two options: jibe and duck
transoms or dig in. We have chosen to dig in. Based on past races, a
northern position at this stage is seldom good, but this year’s weather
pattern is not typical and we remain confident.”

Pyewacket continued to follow in Pegasus 77’s wake, perhaps looking for the
right time to break away after Kahn’s Reichel/Pugh 77 stretched its lead
from 43 to 55 miles Friday.

Lady Bleu II, an Aloha A entry that started July 1, is still nearest to
Honolulu of the 54 boats, but barely. Unlike Vicki, Roger and Brenda Kuske’s
Dynamique 62 from San Diego bit the bullet and dived deeply south across the
rhumb line for better breeze the last two days and held onto its lead by
eight miles over Ross Pearlman’s Sun Odyssey 52.2, Between the Sheets, from
Calabasas, Calif.

Bearing down on both of those boats is There and Back Again, Robert Rice’s
Tripp 40 from Long Beach. The Division 5 racer has gone alternately up and
down relative to the rhumb line the last four days, as navigator Scott
Atwood plays the unstable conditions. Their trip has been quite an
adventure, according to e-mails sent home from the boat.

One report: “Over the last few days, we’ve had two fires and Doug [Gardner]
was attacked last night by a giant killer squid that jumped on the boat.”

Question: “How big was the giant killer squid?”

“About six inches long.”

Otherwise, the reports mentioned that “the only thing that has gone wrong is
water in the radio (music, not the communication radio), so now the only
music is singing to each other, which is agony. We also put the laptop on
deck and watched a movie. It was a pretty amazing night watching a movie on
a laptop on the farthest place from land on the planet.”

OUT OF WIND, OUT OF PATIENCE, BUT THERE’S HOPE AHEAD

July 10, 2003 For Immediate Release

OUT OF WIND, OUT OF PATIENCE, BUT THERE’S HOPE AHEAD

LOS ANGELES—The slowest elapsed time ever in 41 previous Transpacific
Yacht Races since 1906 was five minutes shy of 24 days by William Merry’s
Viking Childe, a 42-foot ketch from Long Beach, Calif., in 1939.

That was the only Transpac to start in San Francisco and actually was 140
miles shorter than the 2,225-nautical mile course from Los Angeles in play
since 1941. For that route, the longest race was a bit over 21 1/2 days by
Irving H. Baltzer and Verne Pemberton’s Blue Jacket, a 50-foot ketch from
the Aeolian Yacht Club, in 1953.

One boat reported on the daily roll call that year: “Out of wind, out of
patience, out of beer.”

The current race isn’t that bad yet, but the foregoing is mentioned because
competitors are starting to relate to those painful passages of the past.
There was this report Thursday from the veteran Wendy Siegal’s Cal 40,
Willow Wind:

“Early morning, just at daybreak. Supposedly, there is more wind to the
south of us, but as of now we are wallowing in 2-3 knots of wind. The
newbies on board don’t believe in 20-30 knot trade winds and, quite frankly,
right now, I’m wondering if it is all a myth. This is the second light air
Transpac in a row and this year is much worse than last year. The wind
predictions have not been accurate at all. When we looked at the surface
analysis yesterday, we SHOULD have been in 20-knot trades.”

Typically, Philippe Kahn’s Pegasus 77 sailed only 249 miles but stretched
its lead over Roy E. Disney’s Pyewacket—now directly behind—from 8 to 43
miles. Pipe Dream, a Choate/Feo 37 being coaxed along by John Davis of Long
Beach in the Aloha B class, has made only 56 and 65 miles the last two days
of what looks like an 18-day trip.

“The 24-hour runs are enough to make a grown man cry,” communications
officer Grant Baldwin commented from Alaska Eagle.

Only eight of the 54 boats made 200 miles—a bad day by normal standards.
Four are now projected to reach the Diamond Head finish line as late as July
18, the day of the awards dinner. No boats are projected to finish before
Monday, July 14.

Through it all, Stan Honey, sailing his and wife Sally’s Cal 40, Illusion,
from Palo Alto, with veterans Skip Allan and Jon Andron as crew, has
demonstrated his usual Transpac navigational wizardry—heretofore
beneficial to Pyewacket—by putting this much slower boat in the right
places at the right times. With 172 miles from Wednesday to Thursday,
Illusion had a better day than most of the boats in Division 4 and below and
now lead the next Cal 40 by 68 miles.

In his daily commentary from Pegasus 77, Kahn said, “Our strategy [against
Pyewacket] has worked better than expected,” and he also took time to
question Honey’s strategy and check out the Transpac 52 duel as Bill
Turpin’s Alta Vita made a move on Karl Kwok’s Beau Geste.

“Beau Geste didn’t play the shifts as we did in order to dive south and
cover Alta Vita,” Kahn said. “Stan Honey is heading north in his Cal 40. It
seems that he is trying to call an early layline to set himself up for port
approach to Honolulu. That’s an interesting move given the present weather
forecasts.”

As for the forecasts, there may be hope beyond the horizon. Phil Mislinski,
a freelance photographer on Oahu, told the Transpac press office, “The
trades have been blowing really hard here—notes have been flying off my
refrigerator, magnets and all—and the local forecasts say it’s going to
blow through Sunday. There’s a significant chop and whitecaps on the water.”

Baldwin said, “It’s starting to smell like the tropics, [and] the forecast
from Commanders Weather indicates stronger winds with east-northeast trades
improving over the next 48 hours.”

July 9, 2003 For Immediate Release

A FLYING HORSE ON A SLOW TRACK TO HAWAII

LOS ANGELES—“A big cheer on board the mighty Pegasus.”

That was the word from Pegasus 77 owner/skipper Philippe Kahn after
Wednesday morning’s position reports showed his Reichel/Pugh 77 had taken
the lead from Roy E. Disney’s R/P 75 Pyewacket in their Division 1 match
race of the 42nd Transpacific Yacht Race to Hawaii.

Both boats suffered in winds lighter than usual. Grant Baldwin on the
communications vessel Alaska Eagle reported, “Weather conditions have
deteriorated for the entire fleet. Trade winds are down, boat speeds are
down . . . and fish count is down.”

Pegasus 77 sailed only 265 miles in the previous 24 hours but that was 31
miles more than Pyewacket, which has endured the added pain of bearing
south away from the rhumb (direct) line in search of stronger breeze.
Pegasus 77 is now headed more directly toward the finish line 1,447 miles
away, eight miles closer than Pyewacket in the 2,225-nautical race.

“We invested in the south and our investment is starting to pay off,” Kahn
said. “We are now ahead on all leader boards. But this is a long race and
our competition is tough. We’re not even halfway to Honolulu. This may be a
race where the lead changes a few times more.”

Although Kahn also noted that Pegasus 77’s 24-hour average speed of 11.4
knots was “not bad for light air,” it was far off Pyewacket’s record pace of
12.4 knots over 7 1/2 days in 1999. At the moment Pegasus 77, the 2001 Barn
Door winner, is projected to finish about two hours in front but about half
a day off the record.

The unstable conditions are such that two smaller Transpac 52s sailing in
better wind patterns had better days than Pyewacket. Division 2 leader Beau
Geste, sailed by Hong Kong businessman Karl Kwok, logged 235 miles and Bill
Turpin’s Alta Vita from San Francisco was second only to Pegasus 77 with
254.

Perhaps significant is that Stan and Sally Honey’s Cal 40, Illusion,
regained the race’s overall lead on corrected handicap time as it sailed
farther south than any other boat except Andy Sibert’s Enchanted Lady, a
Roberts 55 ketch from Seal Beach, Calif. that had the best day among the
Aloha competitors with 173 miles.

Just slightly ahead of the big boats now after starting two days earlier on
July 4, the smaller Division 3 and 4 boats continued to slog along as best
they can. Earlier, Honolulu’s Dan Doyle, sailing the 1D35 Two Guys On the
Edge with Bruce Burgess, filed surprisingly upbeat e-mail reports via
satellite.

“Now is the part of the race where Two Guys should begin to pick up the pace
on the other boats,” Doyle wrote. “The only case where that will be
difficult is if we spend the entire race in light winds, making this a
displacement/waterline race rather than a planing one. Time will tell.

“We had an interesting day today with electronic problems continuing to
plague the boat. We took on a lot of water right into the nav/electronic
station which has impacted our ability to use our radio effectively and has
generally wreaked havoc throughout the boat. I spent virtually all day with
Bruce driving and me crawling around the bilge trying to diagnose the
problems.

“The wind is blowing right down the rhumb, our fishing line is out and I am
having a nice glass of red wine. All and all, not too bad of a day. For
now, it’s on to the south!”

Australian James Neill’s Super 30, The Cone of Silence, returned to Long
Beach around midnight Tuesday after dropping out last Saturday. He was
welcomed by Marina Shipyard operator Bud Tretter with sandwiches and a case
of beer—not quite the luau welcome customary at Waikiki but a great relief
to family and friends back home who hadn’t heard a word for three days and
were in no mood to appreciate the boat’s appropriate name.

“We are back safe and sound,” Neill reported. “We were unable to get through
to Alaska Eagle on bed check or today’s [roll call] and would be grateful
if you would pass on the message. Thanks for having us in your race. We hope
to give it another try in 2005.

“For the record, the reason we retired is the boat suffered damage to its
jet drive doors due to operator error. In essence, we have a jet drive which
sucks water up through a door and then out through another. Someone
accidentally opened the cleat that holds the doors shut. This went unnoticed
and eventually the water pressure coming in through the half-opening blew
the back door off its hinges.

“It took some time to notice the damage and frankly we couldn’t work out why
we were so slow. We tried to fix it in the water but just couldn’t. It will
take two minutes to fix on the crane.

“Lastly, the radio earth [ground] was attached to the doors, which might
have been the reason we were unable to reach Alaska Eagle today.”

PYEWACKET’S DAY OF RECKONING IN THE WIND GAME

LOS ANGELES—Pegasus 77 sailed farther and faster Tuesday but Pyewacket
stretched its lead in the marquee match race of the 42nd Transpacific Yacht
Race to Hawaii, a situation that has often been an anomaly of the race for
the last half-century.

Meanwhile, Renegade, an Andrews 70 sailed by Dan Sinclair of Vancouver,
B.C., dropped out Monday afternoon with a problem described as “failure of
the boat’s steering sheaves.” Renegade started in Division 2 a day earlier
and was 260 miles offshore in Mexican waters. Sinclair, sailing his fourth
Transpac, said the breakdown occurred in 12-foot seas. He said the boat was
in no danger and was returning to San Diego but gave no ETA.

There have been three dropouts since the starts, reducing the fleet to 54
boats. Beau Geste, a Transpac 52 sailed by Hong Kong businessman Karl Kwok
with a largely New Zealand crew, now leads Division 2 boat for boat and on
corrected handicap time, second only to Pyewacket in the latter.

Until 1947, logic called for sailing a direct, or “rhumb,” line of 2,225
nautical miles from Los Angeles to Honolulu because sailors didn’t realize
they could avoid a region of light wind by sailing a little farther south.

With improved weather information developed in World War II, two
boats—Chubasco and Westward—tried just that in ’47 and finished first
and third. Then in ’49, when Westward’s navigator, Bob Allan, pulled the
same ploy that delivered the first Barn Door trophy to Richard Rheem’s
Morning Star as first boat to finish, the others were sold on the concept of
the Pacific High—that monstrous, undulating zone of high pressure waddling
over the eastern Pacific Ocean.

Avoiding the high remains conventional wisdom in the 42nd Transpac 54 years
later, but it’s a like a boxing opponent, bobbing and weaving and leaving
everyone on every boat to look to the navigator for guidance. And where does
the navigator look? Often to Nashua, New Hampshire, where George Caras of
Commanders Weather is based.

Studying the positions reported at Tuesday morning’s daily roll call, Caras
said, “North may be favored a little bit [Monday] or [Tuesday], but south
will be favored starting [Thursday]. The goal for a lot of the boats is
going to be to get farther south.”

Those would include Pyewacket, Roy E. Disney’s Reichel/Pugh 75 that holds
the race record of about 7 1/2 days. Sailing a more direct course, Pyewacket
logged 329 miles at 13.7 knots in the first full day at sea and moved into
first place in corrected handicap time for the entire fleet.

Oddly, Philippe Kahn’s R/P 77 Pegasus, taking a more tactical southerly
route, went 338 miles at 14.1 knots but dropped to 27 miles behind.

“[Pyewacket] got a little lead because they found a shade more breeze up
north,” Caras said, “but they’ll come down now to keep up with the wind.
Their wind angle may not be as good coming down and it could tighten the gap
or give Pegasus a little bit of an advantage, but we’ll have to see on
that.”

There also is good news and bad news for everybody, Caras said.

“The high [pressure area] is moving away from the fleet farther out. That’s
going to allow that low to come east-southeast, and that essentially will
weaken the trade winds. High pressure drives the belt of the trades, but
it’ll be so high up that it’ll have less influence.”

That could dampen hopes of a record. The frontrunner, Roger and Brenda
Kuske’s Lady Bleu II, a Dynamique 62 from San Diego that started with the
Aloha class a week earlier, was 884 miles from the finish but sailing into
weaker wind above the rhumb line.

“Their smarter move would be to come a little farther south,” Caras said.

Wendy Siegal, reporting from Willow Wind, the Cal 40 that won the Aloha
class in 2001, confirmed Caras’ assessment.

“The winds were as light as I can remember seeing them in the middle of the
Pacific,” she said. “We got down to 5 knots of wind . . . just trying to
keep the [spinnaker] filled as we slopped along. We’re supposed to be in
15-knot trades.”

PEGASUS 77 BETS ON THE LONG WAY TO HAWAII

LOS ANGELES—Before Sunday’s last start in the 42nd Transpacific Yacht
Race, Roy E. Disney’s Pyewacket was flying two appropriate battle flags: a
cat and a mouse.

The rodent connection is obvious, and the boat is named for the mystical
feline in the movie, “Bell, Book and Candle.” But the combination also
heralded what promised to be not just a contest of speed in the
2,225-nautical mile dash to Hawaii but also a game of—right!—cat and
mouse.

Monday morning’s position reports radioed to the Communications vessel
Alaska Eagle placed Pyewacket, a Reichel/Pugh 75, 11 miles closer to the
Diamond Head finish line although, as Philippe Kahn, owner/skipper of the
rival Reichel/Pugh 77, noted that his boat had sailed two more miles than
Pyewacket.

“What does this all mean?” Kahn asked in a report on his Web site. “On all
the race reports Pyewacket will be shown leading in distance to Honolulu
[but] there is more to this. We all know that both boats are going to get
lifted as the winds clock around the [Pacific] high, and in a lift it’s nice
to be the inside boat, which is what Pyewacket is doing.

“However, our weather analysis on Pegasus tells us to expect more wind along
a more southerly route [and that] it’s well worth sailing extra distance to
get south. So Pyewacket is betting on shift, Pegasus is counting on more
pressure. Given a choice, Pegasus wouldn’t trade places with Pyewacket. The
next 24 hours are going to be critical.”

As that battle of wits develops, the 25 boats that started Tuesday, July 1
were at the halfway point experiencing what communications officer Grant
Baldwin described as “stable” weather conditions with north-northeast winds
of 10-17 knots and “seas still smooth with little squall activity.”

That’s not what anyone with records on their minds wanted to see. On the
other hand, Kahn reported: “The tropical depression that is headed for our
projected path has now officially been upgraded to ‘tropical storm’ and they
gave her a beautiful name: Dolores. She apparently carries gusts over 45
knots and is picking up strength. We’ll stay away from that one.”

That could alter his strategy relative to Pyewacket.

Meantime, Maitri, Peter Johnson’s J/160 from San Diego, enjoyed the best
24-hour run in the fleet with 228 miles at an average speed of 9.5 knots to
seize the lead on projected overall handicap time from the week-long leader,
Stan and Sally Honey’s Cal 40, Illusion.

Kahn also replayed the first hours of the race when Pegasus 77 took the lead
from Pyewacket but then lost it before crossing the San Pedro Channel toward
Santa Catalina Island.

“The Pyewacket team lost the start,” Kahn said. “Robbie Haines was driving
the Pyewacket, while I was helming the Pegasus. When I handed the helm to
Morgan [Larson] a good hour into the race we became overconfident and
stretched too much to windward, letting them foot to leeward and gain lots
of gauge to the right.

“Then a massive 40-degree shift happened and we fell into a wind hole. I am
glad that we are learning our lessons early in this race.”

PYEWACKET LEADS PEGASUS 77; TWO BOATS DROP OUT

LOS ANGELES— Roy E. Disney’s Pyewacket led Philippe Kahn’s Pegasus 77 past
the West End of Santa Catalina Island and into open ocean as the great match
race of the 42nd Transpacific Yacht Race to Hawaii unfolded Sunday.

“We’re about a mile ahead of Pegasus, which is dead astern,” Peter Isler,
Pyewacket’s navigator, reported by phone. “I can’t see anybody else right
now in the haze.”

The two lead boats passed the island 23 miles off the Pacific Coast a bit
more than 2 1/2 hours after the start.

Meanwhile, two smaller boats that started Friday dropped out. Lucky Dog, a
J/125 being sailed doublehanded by Peter Putnam and Len Bose of Newport
Beach, Calif., returned to its home port at noon Sunday because of a leak in
the steering column of its rudder.

The Cone of Silence, a Super 30 from Australia and the smallest boat in the
race at 31 feet, withdrew reporting “structural damage.” Skipper James Neill
said he did not require assistance.

Putnam said, “We got out 150 miles and found Saturday afternoon that the
rudder was letting water into the boat. We thought it would be better to
withdraw. We’re OK but disapppointed.”

Another boat transmitted an automatic distress signal early Sunday
morning—apparently accidentally. A Coast Guard C-130 responded to an EPIRB
(emergency position indicator radio beacon) alarm sent by Nick Martin’s
Schock 40, On Point, from Wilmington, Calif. On Point reported later that it
had taken a wave over the side that activated the alarm but caused no
damage.

The last 12 of 57 boats to start (now numbering 55) were surrounded by a
sun-splashed spectator fleet at the end of the Independence Day holiday
weekend in the U.S. They started in light wind off the cliffs of the Palos
Verdes Peninsula. Their destination is the landmark Diamond Head finish line
2,225 nautical miles away.

Among the final starters, the oddity was that all boats started on port
tack, with the wind at 5 knots from the south and coming over their left
(port) sides. Normally, boats prefer to start on starboard tack, which has
right of way over port tack, but the wind direction was such that everyone
was able to sail straight up the course.

James McDowell’s Grand Illusion, the race’s overall handicap winner in 1999,
was hugging the line headed toward the committee boat as the gun fired, but
the race committee hailed “all clear.” However, at the other end of the
line, Bill Turpin’s Alta Vita appeared to be trying to start on starboard
tack but realized too late that it couldn’t clear the inflatable buoy
marking the “pin” end. As the gun sounded, Alta Vita, a Transpac 52 from San
Francisco, was sailing the wrong way to turn around and start properly.

The best start was claimed by another Transpac 52, Karl Kwok’s Beau Geste
from Hong Kong that has Gavin Brady and other world-class New Zealand
sailors on board—all sailing their first Transpacs. Beau Geste started to
windward of Alta Vita and slightly ahead of John MacLaurin’s fire engine-red
Pendragon 4, the Davidson 52 prototype for the Transpac 52s.

Pyewacket started near the middle of the line directly windward of Pegasus
77, which then played the puffs and zephyrs expertly to sail higher and
faster until Pyewacket was directly behind. That changed in mid-channel, and
Pyewacket seized the lead as a fresh westerly breeze of 9-10 knots arrived,
allowing tacks to starboard for the first time.

“It was pretty fickle,” Isler said. “It kept teasing us halfway across [the
San Pedro Channel]. But we’re easily laying the West End by about four
miles.”

Isler, talking within earshot of Ben Mitchell, also a teammate with Team
Dennis Conner’s America’s Cup team last year, said, “Benny Mitchell used his
vast experience to position us to the right of the enemy. He said the right
side has always paid off in every test we did, and he finally had his chance
to prove it.”

To some observers, it appeared that Grand Illusion had jumped the gun. But a
race committee official said, “They were within two inches of being over. We
started to write down their number but they just got back.”

Among the boats already at sea, Peter Johnson’s Maitri, a J/160 from San
Diego that started Friday, had the best 24-hour run of 246 miles, averaging
10.3 knots, to stretch its lead in Division 3. The frontrunner was still
Roger and Brenda Kuske’s Dynamique 62, Lady Bleu II, from San Diego that
started Tuesday in the Aloha fleet. Lady Bleu II was almost halfway, 1,271
miles from Honolulu.

Grant Baldwin reported from the communications vessel Alaska Eagle that the
wind had gone light during the night and the air was “still cold.”

Daily position reports, charts, news summaries, photos will be posted at

PEGASUS 77 AND PYEWACKET MATCH UP ON SUNDAY

July 5, 2003 For Immediate Release

PEGASUS 77 AND PYEWACKET MATCH UP ON SUNDAY

LOS ANGELES—Get ready for match racing, Transpac style. Philippe Kahn’s
defending Barn Door winner, Pegasus 77, and Roy E. Disney’s record holder,
Pyewacket, will be the only boats starting in Division 1 of the 42nd
Transpacific Yacht Race to Hawaii Sunday, truly in a class by themselves.

Ten other exceptional Division 2 ocean racers, a few with world-class crews,
will start alongside, but even they will have eyes on what rates as a
blockbuster contest between two of the swiftest downwind sailing vessels on
the planet. They’ll sail 2,225 nautical miles from the edge of the Palos
Verdes Peninsula to the Diamond Head volcano east of Honolulu in quest of
the 3 1/2-by-4-foot slab of native Hawaiian koa wood that goes to the
monohull with the fastest elapsed time.

If the trade wind conditions are favorable, the record of 7 days 11 hours 41
minutes 27 seconds set by Pyewacket in 1999 also may be at risk.

And when it’s over, both boats will sail into the sunset, at least for their
present ownership. Pyewacket has been sold to an Asian buyer as Disney
awaits the fall delivery of a new maxZ86. Pegasus 77 is currently listed at
$1.45 million.

How do they match up? Both boats were designed by John Reichel and Jim Pugh
of San Diego and, with their guidance, configured to rate dead even but more
than half a day faster than in 2001 when Pegasus 77 finished 63 minutes in
front, though about 15 hours slower than Pyewacket’s record.

“The boats should be very, very close, forgetting crew and sails and stuff,”
Pugh said. “We made those boats as fast as we could with those [new] fins
and rigs, maintaining acceptable safety factors and making the boats as
identical as possible in speed.

“I suspect they’ll be a minimum of 13 hours faster and maybe quite a bit
more. If they had really good weather, they could get under seven days.”

Their only recent contest was in last month’s Coastal Cup from San Francisco
to Santa Catalina Island. Pegasus 77 ran away in record time, averaging 13.6
knots for the 360 nautical miles. Pyewacket got stuck in light air and
dropped out.

If either boat has an edge, it may be the Pegasus 77 crew of professional
sailors including navigator Mark Rudiger, who last week charted Zaraffa’s
course to first place in the 3,618-mile DaimlerChrysler North Atlantic
Challenge from Newport, R.I. to Cuxhaven, Germany. Afterward, owner Skip
Sheldon called Rudiger “the best navigator in the world.”

Pyewacket will be without its usual navigator, Stan Honey, who is racing his
own Cal 40 and currently rates first overall on projected corrected handicap
among the 45 boats that started Tuesday and Friday. Honey’s replacement is
Peter Isler, who was navigator for several of Dennis Conner’s America’s Cup
campaigns.

Pyewacket also has augmented its long-standing crew with Dean Barker,
skipper of the Team New Zealand AC team. Except for Coastal Cup, he hasn’t
raced since the Kiwis dropped the Cup to Switzerland’s Alinghi after their
boat broke down in two races of a 5-0 sweep.

“This will be my longest offshore race,” Barker said. “I’ve done three
Fastnets and a Sydney-Hobart. From everything I’ve heard it should be a lot
of fun.”

More fun, certainly, than the AC and the vicious post-mortem that followed
in a TNZ internal review and New Zealand media.

“It was a very harsh review,” Barker said. “We are very attached to our
sporting teams because we are a small country and anything other than
winning you get criticized. It was tough.”

He was looking forward to the change of pace, even if it is another match
race.

After Pegasus 77 and Pyewacket, the next fastest boat is Transpac veteran
Bob Lane’s Andrews 61 Medicine Man, which started life as an Andrews 56 in
1991 but has undergone more facelifts than Michael Jackson—new rigs, new
keels, water ballast and even a new hull. It is rated fastest in Division 2
and within 10 hours of Pegasus 77 and Pyewacket. Its strongest competition
could come from a pair of Transpac 52s: Hong Kong businessman Karl Kwok’s
Beau Geste and Bill Turpin’s Alta Vita from San Francisco.

Gavin Brady, already signed on as helmsman for Oracle’s next America’s Cup
campaign, will be on board Beau Geste with other top New Zealand talent.

“No one on our boat’s ever done a Transpac,” Brady said, “but we’ve been
doing our homework. The boat accelerates quickly and is very nice to control
. . . a beautiful boat to sail downwind. A couple of times at night in the
Coastal Cup we got above 30 knots. I thought the Volvo 60 was nice to sail
downwind but this makes that seem like a dinosaur.”

As for the ships at sea, Roger and Brenda Kuske’s Lady Bleu II, a Dynamique
62 from San Diego, remained the frontrunner at 1,482 miles from the finish.
Among Friday’s starters, the J/160s Maitri and Innocent Merriment from San
Diego had the best first day’s runs with 168 and 162 miles, respectively.
Several boats, including Cal 40 leader Stan and Sally Honey’s Illusion,
appeared to be building leverage to the south to avoid the Pacific High area
of light winds.

Barking Spider, a Catalina 38 sailed by David Kory of Point Richmond, Calif.
in the Aloha-B class, was out of contact Friday because of a radio problem
but later was able to report its position by e-mail. Saturday it was able to
contact another boat, which relayed its position information to Alaska
Eagle, the communications vessel accompanying the fleet.

Daily position reports, charts, news summaries, photos will be posted at
www.transpacificyc.org until the completion of the race.
