Swiftsure Yacht Race – May 28 & 29


The formula 40 catamaran Dragonfly owned by Richard Ackrill of Victoria was once again the winner of the Swiftsure.  This year the fleet had to battle an adverse current for most of the race so many boats did not finish until Sunday afternoon.  Dragonfly finished at 3:30 AM Sunday morning followed by Bad Kitty (BCMS Ron Tomas) @ 1:02 PM, Ruff Duck ( NWMA Maryn Adams) @ 1:30 PM and Sauterelle (BCMS John Green) @ 1:59 PM.  The only other multi in the Cape Flattery Multihull division was Blue Lightning who withdrew after rounding.   On corrected time, Dragonfly was still first but Sauterelle took the second position and Ruff Duck third.
