Transatlantic 2011

This was the final start in the 2011 Transatlantic Race from Newport to the Lizard in England -- other starts were up to a week earlier. Top photo is the Oakcliff All-American Offshore team entry Vanquish with its crew with an average age of under 24 years. The second photo shows Rambler 100 and ICAP Leopard (100) at the dock -- both shots were a few hours before the start. The last photo is about 5-6 minutes after the start and, from left to right, you have Vanquish, Rambler, PUMA Mar Mostro and ICAP Leopard. More than 2700 nautical miles to the finish.
