With rugged high-tech structures, breakthrough ocean-going designs, and luxurious interiors, word of our work spread quickly.

Congratulations to Gunboat 62 ELVIS, winners of the multihull class in the 2018 Newport Bermuda Race! Great write-up from the team!

#gunboat #gunboat62 #elvis #newportbermudarace #bermudaraceWe had a great 2018 Newport Bermuda Race onboard Elvis winning the multihull division and finishing 5th in line honors.

The 1st 24 hours were tricky and very decisive. After a light upwind start we gradually eased sheets and began reaching/running towards our Gulf Steam entry waypoint. Winds were very light and variable and it was a mind bender keeping the boat moving in the sloppy sea state. We were very much on our toes as a sword of Damocles in the form of a high pressure ridge was advancing south and threatening to overtake us and slam the door on a fast trip to the Onion Patch. The make or break moment came in the Gulf Steam where we threw in a few jibes in variable winds and finally punched through to the promised land on the good side of the ridge - moderate NE winds would prevail for the remainder of our race.

The balance of the race was extremely pleasant with boat speeds averaging around 15 kt. Our A6 spinnaker took up the slack as we had found the high edge with the A2 and destroyed it earlier in the race. This was ocean sailing at its finest - sunny skies during the day, stunning stars at night and a crew of close friends pushing the boat hard.

It all came to an end at sunrise on Monday morning as we threw in one last jibe and crossed the finish line in Bermuda. It’s an honor to be the first multihull to finish the Newport Bermuda Race and we thank the race organizers for including us.

Thanks to the cast of characters who made it happen: Jason Carroll, Chad Corning, Scotty Bradford, Anthony Kotoun, Artie Means, Chuck Norris, Alister Richardson, Westy Barlow, Jeff Brock and our French sensei Thierry Fouchier.
