Bay to Bay RL Challenge Trophy

A great bonus for RL sailors in the Bay to Bay is the RL Challenge Trophy.  

The trophy was hand crafted by Rob Legg and is the Holy Grail for RL sailors.  

It is awarded on PBH corrected time for all RL boats, so all you have to do is enter the Bay to Bay
and sail really really really well on a personal level to stand a chance of having your name on the trophy.

"Steel Away" under new management. Their first B2B and I'm sure it won't be their last.

If Apaches crew posed less for photos and paid more attention to the kite............

Paul Harris (Steel Away) took this shot of Apache (left) and Hart Beat (right) not long after the day 2 start. These 2 RL's were 2nd and 3rd in the RL Challenge. I don't think anyone got close enough to Go For It to get a photo.
