Cabo Race: Siesta sailing to the south
Published on March 18th, 2019
(March 18, 2019) – The early starters continue to benefit from better winds in the 800nm Newport Beach To Cabo San Lucas International Yacht Race, with the slow pace for the bigger boats proving to be too slow for Manouch Moshayed’s RIO 100 which retired overnight due to light winds. Provisional leaders among the 27 remaining teams are Peligroso (Kernan 70, ORR1), Pywacket (Andrew 70, ORR2), Fast Exit (Andrews 40, ORR3), Horizon (SC50, ORR4), and Chubasco (S&S 67, ORR5).
The 20th edition of the Newport Beach To Cabo San Lucas International Yacht Race follows the 800nm course from Southern California to the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula. A staggered start assigned six entrants in ORR 5 to start on March 14, with the 11 entries in ORR 3 and 4 starting March 15 and the 11 entries in ORR 1 and 2 starting on March 16 along with two multihulls in ORR-MH.
