Gunboat CHIM CHIM crosses the finish line-> San Diego-Puerto Vallarta 2018 race

Today we had the great pleasure to watch Chim Chim cross the finish line by Punta Mita on their San Diego to Puerto Vallarta 2018 race. We were the only spectators at sea cheering for them. Due to the fact that we are anchored in Punta Mita right now, followed the position of Chim Chim during the race and also being in contact with the crew, we were able to time it perfect and took the dinghy out to meet them at the finish line. No other boats were near them at that time.

Here a little clip and pics:

The owner John Gallagher and crew Kyle Gunderson were so nice and accommodating, they even invited us on board right after the finish line crossing with our dinghy in tow.

Great to be aboard of this beautiful race Catamaran.

Our Captain will help deliver the Gunboat ’62 back to San Diego next week.
