Ocean Planet is christened, undergoes her first races, and passes a capsize test.
“”I like to think of this boat as a combination of Rumbleseat, a WylieCat, Rage and a Moore 24 – the whole West Coast thing I’ve been exposed to for the last 20 years.” So spoke Bruce Schwab as we sat below on Ocean Planet, the Bay Area’s newest boat and the first Open Class 60 ever built on the West Coast. Joining us was the boat’s designer, Tom Wylie. ” Latitude 38, July 30, 2001
Thank you for being a great influence to me and our class. On the sailing trip we had a great time and it was especially fun to drive ocean planet. I think that you did a great job building it AND GOOD LUCK AT THE VENDEE GLOBE.
