Vic-Maui Race

The classic Vic-Maui Race started on 25 June 2002, with the boats facing 2300 nautical miles of ocean before they reach Hawaii.
From Vancouver, Canada to Hawaii - this is the 18th holding of this classic biennial race.

After 6 days's racing, it is "Icon", skippered by Jim Roder, who continues to lead Division A and the fleet. She logged 263 miles on Sunday.

"Renegade", an Andrews 70 Turbosled from the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club, found her pace with an impressive 291 miles. She is now in sixth position overall on corrected time. Division A boats occupy the six leading positions, and they are moving at 10-12 knots.

"Mojo Riding", a Beneteau 40.7F from Richmond Yacht Club California, and "First Sight", a Beneteau 45F5R from Maple Bay Yacht Club (both in Division B) are now sailing at about 7-8 knots, and are tenth and eleventh overall.

In Division C, the J36 "Charlemagne" and "Greyhound" twins continue locked in seventh and eighth positions respectively, while "Surt" has moved to ninth.

"Niye Keema", an Irwin 52-3l ketch from Anacortes Yacht Club, leads "Oriole" and "The Rusty Unit" on corrected time in Division D. -
