You really want to win this one....

Team Elsie Piddock sails to first place in inaugural Race to Alaska | The Seattle Times


Race to Alaska. First place, $10,000. Second place, a set of steak knives....

Well done to the winners in an F25 trimaran.

Interestingly, they removed the engine to reduce weight, yet still had 3 people on board.

I think they removed the engine because the rules said no engines.
