Newport To Ensenada Race 2017

First All-Women Multihull Team To Finish

70th Annual Newport To Ensenada (N2E) International Race

 

Another First

Team Sistership completed the N2E Newport to Ensenada Race 2017. After wailing in the swell off the coast of Coronado Island through the night and then battling gusty winds  for the last 5 hours. Despite spending 6 hours of darkness going nowhere (no rowing allowed), the women of Sistership endured into the next day.  By evening winds picked up around 4 p.m. and took the boat for a quick 16 knott choppy ride. She entered Ensenada Harbor alone sometime after 12:00 am and unbeknownst to the crew, Team Sistership had just became the first (unofficial) all-women’s team to complete the 70 year race history on a multihull. Being trailblazers as they were, Team Sistership’s efforts and perserverance resulted in the creation of the first all-female award in the multihull class in the following year.
