2010 24 February, San Diego to Puerto Vallarta race: DNF/12

2011 February "Sailing Anarchy", go/no go? "When the newest Laurie Davidson designed Pendragon hit the water last year, the boat was fraught with problems - keel, rudders, performance... The boat is now back in the water after mucho mods and we're pretty sure there are a lot of clenched asses that won't relax until the boat delivers some good results. Their first race back in really light air didn't look too promising. We hope to have a report on the 'new' boat soon..."
