2012 News

Dennis Pennell, sailing with a crew of ten on Blue Blazes, took division and overall honors in the San Diego to Puerto Vallarta 2012 race. Starting on Thursday, March 1, Blue Blazes benefitted from stiff westerly breezes on the first night, with all starters posting impressive first day logs. While the larger class competitors looked on with envy, the Division 3 boats had sustained winds of 25 kts from their starboard quarter, making for a quick run past Ensenada. Blazes obviously capitalized on the early lead, which later proved important when all competitors had a case of ‘the slows’.
