Morpheus was designed by Carl Schumacher, built by Davie Norris Boatbuilders in New Zealand and launched in 2002. She spent her first 18 months cruising the South Pacific before reaching her home port of San Francisco. Since that time, Morpheus has been raced and cruised extensively. This blog will document her ongoing adventures.
Eventually, I will find the time to sit down and describe our race. The short summary is that with breeze we turned out to be far more competitive than I expected. Unfortunately, we had a mix of conditions that for the most part included either “on” (15-20 knots) or “off” (0-5 knots).
During the first two days of the race there was plenty of breeze and we found ourselves listed as first overall in fleet!! During the last two days of the four day race, we had very little wind and our finishing position slid, with us eventually finishing about mid fleet and in the middle of our division.
