Ahoy Eagle Creekers!
I have been away from our lovely club for several weeks, but I would like to report that your commodore has just completed the 2023 Transpacific race from LA to Hawaii. This was my 4th race to Hawaii.
Our boat was a J125 named Nereid. We finished 1st on our class of 9 and 2nd place in the overall rankings. I have proudly worn my ECSC gear as I represented our club at both Hawaii Yacht Club and Waikiki Yacht Club. Conditions were epic in this race. Our top speeds were in the 23 to 24 knot range.
I know that our committee heads have been busy planning the rest of our season and I am excited to hear the stories from the ECSC Regatta and Beach party.
Sail Fast, Sail often,
Commodore Rick Graef
