Shockwave Wins 2015 Pineapple Cup – Montego Bay Race (811nm)

February 9, 2015

MontegoBayRaceMontego Bay, Jamaica (February 9, 2015)George Sakellaris’s  Reichel/Pugh-designed, McConaghy-built 72-foot Shockwave stormed through the Windward Passage in the wee hours on Feb. 8, taking aim to break the record set in 2005 by the 75-foot Reichel/Pugh Titan 12 of 2 days, 10 hours, 24 minutes, 42 seconds. However, light and fickle winds near the finish in Montego Bay left the team 41 minutes off the pace as they crossed the finish line at ten minutes past midnight with an elapsed finish time of 02:11:05:03. Shockwave had the best corrected time in fleet repeating her result in the 2013 race as Elapsed and Corrected time winner. Congratulations to George Sakellaris and crew, as well as the additional ten teams to complete the 32nd edition of the 811 nm Pineapple Cup – Montego Bay Race.
