Akela, USA 69011

2008 Newport to Ensenada: 1er/??
Bill Turpin's Reichel/Pugh designed 78-foot Akela reside. “We completed a major refit this spring to make the boat more competitive under IRC,” said Turpin (Santa Cruz, Calif.). “We added a lot of sail area and have a deeper draft. This will be a big test for us to see how well we can do under IRC in a windy venue. We'll be racing against some very hot TP52s. It will be interesting to see if we can finish far enough ahead of them to win on corrected time.” Akela has shown significant strength this year by winning the MEXORC, Newport to Ensenada and Coastal Cup races.
