Biff Bunney's Henderson 30 "Power Point" flying all Ullman Sails from Ullman Sails Newport Beach took the top hardware in Class A and Second Overall against the fleet of almost 40 boats. The conditions varied from light to medium wind on Saturday with the wind building to over 15 knots for the second race. Using Fiber Path upwind sails and AirX nylon asymmetric spinnakers, Power Point was tied for the overall lead in Class A after two races with a sister ship Henderson 30 "Reach Around" who was using Ullman nylon spinnakers and only a point ahead of the Farr 40 "Radical Departure" in third place.
Sunday's race was challenging with light wind and lots of down coast current. Power Point powered up their light genoa and took care of business to win the final race to pull away from her class and take the overall class victory!
