Following closely the Getaway victory in Tasmania(see earlier post), a Getaway won the sought after "rusty tin can" trophy in the 6 boat La Manzanilla, Mexico regatta. See article in the Guadalajara Reporter.
[b]La Manzanilla Regatta[/b]
[i][color=#0000BF]The race once again went to the swift as Lew Leibowitz’s Hobie Cat sailed away with the coveted La Manzanilla Cup for the second year in a row. Despite a sportsmanlike late start and sailing parallel to shore while the other boats veered directly toward the course’s first mark, the Cat quickly overtook the competition. After rounding the second mark, it toyed with the contenders like a cat with mice before rocketing back to the finish line with a time of 71 minutes. Alberto Espinoza and Gerry Van Wesep crewed.

Six boats completed the 20-kilometer course around Tenacatita Bay in the Second Annual La Manzanilla Cup Regatta on February 9.[/i][/color]
Next year we will have a handicap. Does anyone know of a good handicap system for the Getaway?

Ah!finally another handicap question,Tasmania's getaway sailor here. I am now using the calypso 16 yardstick of 85.50 and seems to be suited to the getaway,but do remember i race my boat with none of the resort gear.I recently sailed another regatta and came second in the cats,very difficult light wind race and i made some huge tactical blunders,the getaway loves it when it blows.
congrats on your win,what were the other boats you raced against?
Tasmania's only getaway sailor
