Rain Drop Arrives to Early Morning Fanfare
by Race Committee, July 23rd, 2016
Looking like winners in their division as Darby split their competition behind them, Rain Drop finished this morning. Joby Easton aboard his Cascade 36, a very early example of fibreglass production boatbuilding and sailing for the Rose City YC in Portland, arrived just before 4 am on Saturday morning and joined Equus and String Theory safely in the harbour to wait out Darby's arrival.
Despite the early hours, there was a crowd of family waiting for Joby Easton and the father/son duo on Rain Drop - Carson and his best friend CarTER joined Dad Bill Huseby (brother of 2012 Vic-Maui Overall winner Tom Huseby). Joby and Bill won the overall for Pac Cup in 2008 as a double handed entry. And Joby previously won Transpac aboard Reinrag in 2007. While it was a little early for MaiTais for any but the crew and most hearty of greeters, the highlight was the speech of Bill and size of appetites.
