Carmanah is a C&C 43 Custom built in 1971 for Russel Hoyt of Walden Books for the SORC. In 2005 Carmanah spent a year in our drive way at home undergoing an extreme makeover--including the addition of the scoop transom which added back the 24" in length lost to a previous alteration for an IOR rating advantage.
Several of our crew who are here for this event have lot's of sweat-equity in the boat from the reconstruction.
Mike Currie, Mike Hubert, Bob Morton, Teri Bellamy and her daughter Alex are all down from Washington to participate in this event with us.
