Truxton First PHRF Two Handed

Two Handed Division Coastal Classic 2006

29 Oct 2006

Truxton won the SSANZ Trophy for the Coastal Classic 2006. The SSANZ Trophy is awarded to the first monohull overall on PHRF with only two crew. Truxton has been a long time supporter of SSANZ and shorthanded sailing and their experience shone through to win beating 15 other boats. The Two Handed division continues to grow each year.

Another notable performance was that of Dave Mason on 88% Proof. 88% Proof finished 2nd on PHRF in the Two Handed Division but was also the first Young 88 to Russell. A great effort in beating all the fully crewed sisterships up the coast !!!

Mezmerize finished 3rd on PHRF and was the 3rd 1020 on line. Another fine effort and further proof that sailing shorthanded doesn't need to slow you down ! I know the Two Handed crews enjoyed the extra space onboard their yachts after crossing the finish line.
