In this group of starters are also numerous teams who have done multiple Transpacs over the past few decades. This includes Dan Merino’s Express 37 Juno from San Diego, Greg Dorn’s Favonius from Newport Beach, and the boat that has done more Transpacs than any other since they were launched in 1976, including an overall win in 1981. Dean Treadway’s Farr 36 Sweet Okole from San Francisco was built in cold-molded wood in the IOR era yet still remains a relevant offshore competitor today.
