The new boat in town!
Within days of being commissioned and launched from Berkeley Marine Center, Tai Kuai had two first place finishes under her belt -- winning both days in the "big and fast" division of the Corinthian Yacht Club Midwinters. Tai Kuai's PHRF rating is a sizzling -21!
The Reichel Pugh 44, owned by Daniel Thielman, was recently shipped from Trinidad, and assembled, faired, rigged and tuned by Berkeley Marine Center associate Panda Love.
California Condor, a second boat with ties to Berkeley Marine Center, took second place on Sunday in the same division. The Class 40 boat was built at the yard, and launched in 2010.
