Transpac race winner announced in Hawaii
Long Beach Press-Telegram
The yacht reached the finish line at 9:52 p.m. Thursday, Hawaii time, officials said Saturday.

Russell Roberts‘s insight:

And the winner is…"Tritium Racing", which crossed the Diamond Head finish line with a time of 5 days, 11 hours, and 52 minutes for the 2,225 Nautical Mile race. The race had a few unexpected challenges, including a field of debris from the Japanese tsunami of 2011. Race directors said there was no record set because of safety concerns related to the ocean debris. Aloha, Russ.
