Havana, Cuba (February 11th, 2016) – Owner-driver Marc Glimcher’s Reichel/Pugh 69 Trebuchet made history by setting the overall race record and outright passage record for the inaugural 254-nautical mile Miami to Havana Race yesterday with a time of 19 hours, 36 minutes and 10 seconds.
Nearly 60 years have passed since the Southern Ocean Racing Conference last visited Havana. The Florida-based SORC has begun the next chapter in that rich history with the inaugural Miami to Havana Race. Hosted by the Coral Reef Yacht Club and Hemingway International Yacht Club of Cuba, the race boasted 46 sailboats crewed by some 350 skilled sailors finishing at Cuba’s storied Club Nautico Hemingway.
