ISLANDS RACE NEWS

The 2015 Islands Race was unlike any other in the 6 year history of the event. With summer-like conditions on the west coast this March, all 34 boats finished (1 retiring after finish), and HL Enloe's Orma 60 trimaran demolished the course record by 3 hours, 19 minutes and 46 seconds.
Since its introduction in the late 1980s, the ORMA 60 trimaran has seduced the best sailors in the world, especially the solo-sailing cowboys from France. Capable of sustained speeds few powerboats can match, it’s not the sort of boat one would expect your average 78-year-old Texan to campaign, but then again, owner Howard Enloe isn’t your average Texan.
