Transpac Tradition Survives while History is Rewritten
By Lynn Fitzpatrick
Transpac ‘09, the 45th running of the Transpacific Yacht Race from Los Angeles to Honolulu, will go down in history as the fastest Transpac ever, resulting in the obliteration of course records along with many other major accomplishments.
DANA POINT, CA Dec. 8, 2008 – Transpacific Yacht Club Director Sue Senescu has her sights set on her fifth Transpac, in 2009 – this time as skipper of a custom-built Class 40 race boat designed by Jim Antrim.
Sue is serving her first two-year term on the TPYC Board of Directors, is Chair of the Trophies Committee, and Staff Commodore of Dana Point Yacht Club. She previously raced in Transpac 1995 and 1997 on all women crews; in 2003 she mixed it up with the guys aboard the SC50 Horizon, and in 2005 on the Cabo Rico 56, Madrina – winning second in class.
