The first day of this two day event consisted of 3 windward leeward buoy races for all fleets out in the ocean for the first day and a random leg race for all except the Beneteau 36.7’s on Sunday.  The Beneteau 36.7’s continued racing with 2 more windward leeward races on Sunday.

In the Beneteau First Class Wiki Wiki owned and sailed by Carol and Mike Honeysett dominated the event with straight wins over the two days of racing.  The West Coast Championship Beneteau 36.7’s was also dominated by Chick Pyle and his crew on Kea.  Kea won all 5 races and led to all but 3 marks the entire weekend.  This is Chick’s second West Coast Championships.

The Class Cruise 1 was won by a narrow margin by Betsy Merritt on Ali’Kai beating out two time winner Faheem Hasnain.  In Cruise 2 Lee Pearce won by one point over Brian Ganz and crew on Ashley giving him the overall cruise class win.

Ullman Sails was proud to power the two dominate boats Wiki Wiki and Kea to straight wins and their championships.
