VIDEO / RP63 Aszhou at Long Point Race Week

September 2, 2016 · Posted by kate

Santa Catalina Island, California (August 29, 2016) – Long Point Race Week combines the best of many worlds into a fantastic three-day weekend. Dislike delivery’s? Day one is a race out to Catalina Island, followed by a short race on Saturday around ship rock and back, and Sunday is a race home! With a relatively short racing plan, competitors can enjoy both intense racing as well as the other aspects that Southern California offers. Reichel/Pugh engineer Dan Flanigan spent three days racing and enjoying Catalina onboard the RP-designed Aszhou, ex Limit, owned by Steve Meheen. Spear fishing, hiking, and enjoying the escape from mainland life complemented the short stints of all out racing aboard the fast paced RP63. “Steve has set up the Aszhou program with an experienced team that is focused on racing hard, improving and having fun.” We wish the Aszhou team good luck in future races.
