Lickity Split - Catalina 38 Class National Champ!

Long Beach, CA
Joe Degenhardt and his crew on Lickity Split took a complete sweep of the 2008 Catalina 38 Nationals hosted by Shoreline Yacht Club. Lickity Split raced with all Ullman Sails and finished first in all five races and rounded every buoy in first place, except one!
Smooth water and a light breeze from the south-southwest greeted racers in the inner breakwater area. Pointing and acceleration off the start line proved to be a secret weapon for Joe. His upwind sails are a Carbon GPL AP#1 Genoa and Technora Fiberpath Main from Ullman Sails Newport Beach.Joe has owned Lickity Split for almost 30 years and has been putting Ullman Sails on board since he first started racing his boat three decades ago! Joe is a special person in the Ullman Sails family and we congratulate him on another Catalina 38 Class National Championship!
