A Successful Debut for the new Riptide 35 and 41 at the 2013 Southern Straits Classic Race!

In an atypical repeat of sailing conditions, this years Southern Straits Classic out of Vancouver British Columbia was a similar race to last years event, with predominately light air for the first half of the race and moderate wind for the second half.  It was the first race for the new Riptide 35 and 41 designs launched earlier this Spring.  Both boats showed great speed on the race course, easily pacing with much larger boats.  In the end both boats won their classes with the 35 taking 1st overall on corrected time and the 41 taking 3rd overall on corrected time.
