Phoenix Arrived in the wee hours - First Canadian Boat to Finish

by Charlotte Gann & Race Committee, July 20th, 2022



At 03:17:34 HST on July 20, 2022 the race yacht Phoenix crossed the finish line near Kaanapali and became the First Canadian boat to finish. A short while later, the boat was piloted to the Lahaina Small Boat Harbor and came alongside to the wild cheers at about 4 AM of family, friends and the team of Greeters from Sea Maui. Champagne corks popped aboard Phoenix and many hugs and kisses were shared.

Royal Vancouver Yacht Club Vice Commodore Cedric Burgers was on hand to the delight of Gord Wylie and his Phoenix crew. At 10 AM, the Lahaina Yacht Club was buzzing, a fine repast was provided for the champion sailors who are thrilled to have completed the race and have so many tales of Challenge, Adventure and Teamwork to share for decades to come.
