1981 SORC on Impasse, a dark blue Serendipity 43 owned by Bill Packer Jr. Full Sobstory inventory, with some of the first heavy duty mylar/dacron laminate jibs. Almost impossible to fold and wouldn't go down any hatches on the boat until strapped up in a turtle with about 15 sail ties round them.

First to finish - Flyer in 78 hours and 52 minutes
Overall fleet winners on corrected time - Impasse (IOR), Mandate (MHS)
