Day 8 brings beautiful views and our first step on solid ground in over a week. We were tested both physically and mentally during this wonderful journey and the crew truly feels this voyage will forever be a bond we share together. Overall, we traveled 2382 NM over 8 days 3 hours 32 minutes 14 seconds. Merlin finished first in our division but ranked third on corrected time. Congratulations to Taxi Dancer, who won our division, and Bueno Sara who finished second. Thanks to all at Transpac for another fantastic race. Can't wait to be back out there next year!
