From The Deck Of Prospector 13 July 2015 1000Z

We had to withdraw from the coastal race because of a big tear in the main.  We are all grateful it held till after we finished the TR.

We are motoring on to Cowes.  We should get there around 6:30pm local.

Here is a post about the amazing Prospector.

Best.

PROSPECTOR FINISHES TR2015!

At 0333:02Z on 13 July 2015 the mighty Prospector and her indomitable crew of 15 crossed the finish line at The Lizard in Cornwall, England to finish the 2015 Transatlantic Race.

The second yacht to cross the finish line in her 10 boat class, Prospector was the ninth of 38 monohulls and tenth of forty yachts to finish in the TR2015 fleet. 

Preliminary predicted, provisional standings have Prospector correcting to third place in IRC 3.  She is currently the leader in the clubhouse for the IRC3 fleet with the two yachts ahead of her still out on the course.  We are ecstatic with these results.

Our Transatlantic Race is over.  It is very surreal to write such a thing after two years of planning and 3,000 miles sailed.  The entire crew is thrilled to have finished the race, an accomplishment to be proud of for the rest of our lives.

Now, it is on to the 164 nautical mile Coastal Race to Cowes.  Many of us have family eagerly awaiting us in Cowes.  They will watch us cross the final finish line from the Royal Yacht Squadron, meet us at the dock and join us for what promises to be an epic party.
