Kinetic Wins the 2010 Vic-Maui Race

Below is an exciting update from our friends at Kinetic.

Kinetic finished the Vic-Maui International Yacht Race.  We won our class and the race overall.  We sailed against some keen, experienced competitors and the outcome was in doubt until very late in the race.  This year’s race was quite windy and fairly rough, making for some fast, exciting sailing.

Our team of five adults and four teens did a great job of staying focused and working hard for the entire twelve days of the race.  They also kept up a great sense of humor and had a lot of fun!  Contributing significantly to our win was getting the weather and course decisions right; for this, we used an electronics system including instrumentation, communications and navigation equipment, at the center of which was our Panasonic CF-30 Toughbook.  Impossibly reliable!
