Roll Call of August 1 for 2022 Maui-Vic Fleet & Follow some on FB

by Charlotte Gann & Race Committee, August 2nd, 2022



The 10 boats in the 2022 return journey from Maui to Victoria (or to home ports around the Pacific Northwest) are making their way northward from the Hawaiian Islands, saying goodbye to our hosts at the Lahaina Yacht Club for another two years.

Ten boats are returning. One is staying in the Hawaiian Islands - Lurline sailed  in the Vic-Maui race from Canadian waters to her home at the Kaneohe Yacht Club. One - Peligroso - returned to California a bit ago.

The conditions for boats heading almost due north is rambunctious for the first several days because they're sailing to windward and the prevailing Trade winds push the seas ahead, which smacks up on the starboard bow of the boats, washing driver and crew with warm waters which they'll enjoy for a short while longer. The other reason for the bigger seas is the ocean waters moving toward the shallower shelf around the Hawaiian archipelago has to go somewhere and as the shelf shallows, the seas reach for the sky ('stick 'em up, hombre'). Crews are clipped in around the clock and endure this discomfort with a gleeful sense of adventure.

There are a few Facebook pages where the crews are posting their return adventure. If you'd like to follow, here are their links;

Follow the YB Tracker for the boats, and periodically check the website for the noon Roll Calls for the fleet.
