According to the Pacific Cup website (www.pacificcup.org), Bob McNeil’s new 86-foot Zephyrus V has claimed line honors in the 2002 Pacific Cup, beating Robert Miller’s 147-foot Mari-Cha III by approximately three hours. Zephyrus V crossed the finish line this morning Hawaii time, taking just under seven days for the 2,070-mile crossing from San Francisco. While McNeil’s new boat–this was its first race–did win the line honors, it was unable to better Roy Disney’s 1998 record for the race (6d:14h:22m).

Also in the mix for “first to finish” honors was the doublehanded Sonoma 30 Two Guys on the Edge. With the advantage of a four-day headstart, Bruce Burgess and Dan Doyle almost nipped the big dogs at the finish.
