Thank God we made it!

More like "Thank God the keel didn’t fall off"! If not it would have looked like this! Pyewacket was the first to finish today in the 44th biennial Transpacific Yacht Race from California to Hawai'i. Disney's 94-foot boat, sailing in the fastest boats division, crossed the finish off Diamond Head at 11:11 a.m., seven days after the start.

The elapsed-time record of 6 days, 16 hours, 4 minutes, 11 seconds was set by Morning Glory two years ago. That time passed at 2 a.m. today. Bummer!
