HOME MOVIES – Moore 24 “US 101” racing in the 2012 Doublehanded Farallones race; a 56 nm ocean race starting and ending in San Francisco, CA. Ronnie Simpson and crew Ruben Gabriel finished 1st in class and 1st overall, sailing the smallest boat in the fleet. Out of 58 entries, only 14 boats started and only 8 finished, owing to a very severe forecast and 50-knot puffs in the pre-start. Ronnie and Ruben will both be racing Moore 24’s in the 2012 Singlehanded Transpac. Ronnie is racing on behalf of ‘Hope for the Warriors’, a wounded-veteran non-profit, and his goal is to raise money to teach wounded veterans how to sail.

HOME MOVIES – Here is a HOME MOVIE that is very well done – The 2012 OYRA LIght Bucket Race aboard the Moore 24 “US 101”. 101 finished 3rd in her class out of 12 entries. The race started out with light variable breeze and ended with a full-planing spinnaker reach back to San Francisco.
This was 101’s first training race before she competes in the 2012 Singlehanded Transpac race from San Francisco to Kauaia. Ronnie Simpson will sail the boat representing Hope for the Warriors, a wounded veteran non-profit, to raise awareness and funds to teach wounded veterans to sail.
