TRANSPAC 07 - Yachts Began Arriving Last Weekend in Honolulu

                                                        Aloha to Honolulu

Laurie Manny has kept us updated from the start line.

I apologize for not getting an update from the finish line of the 44th Transpacific Race posted sooner.  I have been extremely busy this week with work and ABR classes the last few days.  Here are some pictures from the Ala Wai Boat Harbor where the finishers are gathering.  There is a party atmosphere at the yacht clubs.  I will be posting later with the final results and some more pictures.
