    Default LongPac Tactics Seminar on May 12th

    I am pleased to announce our first 2011 LongPac Seminar. Stan Honey will be giving a talk on tactics for the LongPac on Thursday, May 12th at 7:30pm at the Oakland Yacht Club. Stan was recently awarded the 2010 Rolex Yachtsman of the Year for his work as navigator on Groupama 3. Groupama 3 set the record for fastest time around the planet at 48 days, seven hours and 45 minutes. He was also the winning navigator aboard ABN Amro One in the 2006 Volvo Ocean race. Closer to home, Stan completed in our Single Handed TransPac aboard his CAL 40 “ILLUSION” with an elapsed time of 11:10:52:21 (OK, that is a full ten days faster than my time!). Stan still holds the corrected time course record for the SHTP. Stan is now working on many projects including the America’s Cup here in the San Francisco bay. He is also a great guy! Save the date for this special talk.

    Hi AJ,

    I haven't been on the forum since I got back from HI till tonight. Congrats on being chairman for the Longpac *AND* the transpac!!!! You are a glutton for punishment. I was reading an earlier post and saw they were looking for a chair for the Longpac and I had typed an email to Max offering to at least help when I saw the post that they had found a sucker, excuse me I mean chair..... Smile..... Let me know if you can use some help. If not I will probably just sail the longpac since I know a lot of the prospective participants. I will probably also do the 2012 Transpac again, what the heck. It's like drugs, once you start it's hard to stop........

    I don't know how often I will get on here so best to email me if you need help.

    SeeYa,

    Smile Stan Honey Article

    There's a very good interview with Stan Honey in the current (May, 2011) issue of "Sailing World" magazine. Includes a great photo of Stan and Sally in their house, too. Good background for any SSS folks who haven't been around long enough to know Stan and his achievements.
