F-32 trimaran PAX The Space Spider, skipper by Rod Thorp, which finished in a little over three hours and 20 minutes. The first monohull boat to finish, and second across the finish line was Neptune’s Car, skippered by Paul and Mary LaMarche, with an elapsed time of a little more than three hours and 22 minutes. The first cruising class boat to finish was the Tartan 43 6th Element. Madrona, out of Seattle Yacht Club, skippered by Carl Buchan, claimed first
