TF10 Triumphs at Great Vallejo Race 2019
San Francisco, California - May 13, 2019 - The Great Vallejo Race was the third and final stop on the TF10 West Coast racing schedule in 2019, and atop the results, seated first and second in the multi-hull division was Malcolm Gefter’s Celeritas and Ron O’Hanley’s Fearless Girl.
“The upwind speed on the TF10 was just astounding. We had so much fun. We always knew the downwind runs would be really good, but its upwind speed was more than we could have hoped for — she is a monster boat,” says Gefter. “The TF10 has a pretty demanding rating of -175, but with corrected time we beat about 200 other boats. The second fastest boat was Fearless Girl.”
Both Celeritas and Fearless Girl are now back on the East Coast, getting ready for summer time racing in beautiful Newport, RI.
