Entry: Velocity, J/42

He's back for more punishment! Portland based skipper, Tom Keffner, and his Velocity crew will be racing hard aboard his J/42 in the A2 class again this year. These guys know how to work the coast and straits (not to mention they are usually up for some post race shenanignas, too)! PHRF rating 72

PS Keep a lookout for a special breakdown of last year's race onboard Velocity from Dan Tedrow.

Entry: Image, Catalina 38

Love it when we get new boats! Although Seattle's Marc Klimaschewski crewed in last year's race, he is coming back this year as skipper of Image, a Catalina 38. He and his experienced crew are no strangers to racing in the Pacific Northwest with numerous Swiftsures and Van Isle 360s under their belts. They plan to participate in Swiftsure this year as well. Going to be a great addition! With both ORC and PHRF ratings, we will wait to see which class they will ultimately race.
