C470 Charmed Life

2005 Transpacific Yacht Race from Los Angeles to Hawaii

Pat Garfield, Charmed Life, #62

As quoted from the February 2007 MainSheet:

They were "two crazy women", old enough to know better and fueled at times by cookies and milk, but they made history in the classic 2005 Transpacific Yacht Race from Los Angeles to Hawaii.

It was almost an inadvertent achievement. The voyage began simply as something of a homecoming trip. At the time they entered, little did Patricia Garfield and Diane Murray know they would become the first women to sail double-handed in the Transpac, one of the oldest ocean races in the world.
