Nala's Regatta Debut - 1st Place

As regatta season continues in the caribbean, HH66-03 'Nala' debuted with the 'Round the Rocks race on Thursday. The circumnavigation of St. John is a great warm-up for both boat and crew. Following this, they then faced off against multiple Hudson Yacht Group built Gunboat 60s and the Bieker 53 in the St. Thomas International Regatta.

What a race! On the final day HH66-03 'Nala' was tied in points with Fujin at six points each. Winner of the last race takes all! In the end HH66 Nala took second elapsed and first on corrected. She finished the regatta strong and secured 1st place overall.

 

First place in her first regatta, awesome work!

Big congrats to all the competitors and huge thanks to the Offshore Multihull Class organizers and to the excellent STIR team!
