The Polar Bear crosses the Pacific!


Yeah, believe it, only the Polar Bear in this case is a 30 foot sailboat manned Singlehandidly by Eric Thomas of Duluth, MN. I just had to put out a huge congrats to Eric who raced his small sailboat from San Francisco to Hawaii. He made the crossing in something like 14 days, I could not find coherent results on my google searches but I believe he won his class and also place very high in the overall results as well (if not top three). Not bad for a dude who trained on a Lake.

Eric won in his class and placed second overall. The first place finisher has done the same race something like 27 or 29 times.
