LESSONS LEARNED SAILING SINGLEHANDED TRANSPAC

Tune into the ninth episode of the Lessons Learned Podcast series by UK Sailmakers, featuring Brendan Huffman as he shares his journey competing in his second Singlehanded Transpacific Race aboard his Santa Cruz 33, SIREN.

“Brendan Huffman shares his experiences competing in his second Singlehanded Transpacific Race aboard his Santa Cruz 33, SIREN, including how he enhanced his performance for the second Singlehanded race, ultimately winning his division and securing 5th place overall.”

In this episode, Brendan reflects on the insights gained from his nine races to Hawaii, discussing the lessons learned, and how he enhanced his performance for the second Singlehanded race, ultimately winning his division and securing 5th place overall.

Preparation proves to be the cornerstone of a successful Hawaii race, and Brendan delves into his decision-making process regarding vessel choice, sail selection, and boat modifications aimed at improving comfort, safety, and overall results. Instead of opting for a return delivery, Brendan chose to contribute to the youth sailing program at the Kauai Sailing Association by donating SIREN, marking the beginning of new adventures on the horizon.
