Pacific Cup 2008 Awards

Well, it's awards time and this is the big one. Cirrus gets to keep the beautiful carved wooden statue for two years because we were the "Fastest Boat from Hawaii". In addition there is a heavy glass vase that we get to keep that is also associated with being the fastest boat from Hawaii.

The other award was a gimbaled brass chronometer in a polished wooden box that we won by being the third fastest boat in "Division B". The two boats in front of us were quite a bit faster than we were but the boat behind was similar to us and gave is a good race for third place.

We finished in 12 days, 13 hours, 41 minutes and 26 seconds.
At a nominal 2070 nautical miles for the whole trip, that would be
164.7 nautical miles per day,
6.9 nautical miles per hour (knots),
0.11 nautical miles per minute
