A big thanks to Richard at the RB Sailing Blog for posting a video of the 1983 SORC.  It chronicles, amongst all the battles, Scarlet O'Hara's overall SORC win that year.  Fame received a (dis)honorable mention for dropping her rig in the St. Petersburg to Ft. Lauderdale Race.

Be sure to check out the RB Sailing Blog too, the best IOR resource out there so far.

Peregrine Completes Circumnavigation

Peregrine, Gene and Sue Osier's Serendipity 43, completed her circumnavigation in Zihuatanejo, Mexico on March 5, 2014.  Peregrine participated in the 2000 Baja Haha, and left Z-town for the Marquesas in April 2001.

Gene and Sue believe she is the first Serendipity 43 to circumnavigate.  They sincerely appreciate all the help and support they received during the 13 year period.  They experienced many wonderful times, places and people, and a few scary times including the 2004 tsunami while in Phuket.

Congratulations, Gene and Sue!
