The Great Vallejo Race was the third and final stop on the TF10 West Coast racing schedule in 2019, and atop the results, seated first and second in the multi-hull division was Malcolm Gefters Celeritas and Ron OHanleys Fearless Girl.

The upwind speed on the TF10 was just astounding. We had so much fun. We always knew the downwind runs would be really good, but its upwind speed was more than we could have hoped for she is a monster boat, says Gefter. The TF10 has a pretty demanding rating of -175, but with corrected time we beat about 200 other boats. The second fastest boat was Fearless Girl.

Both Celeritas and Fearless Girl are now back on the East Coast, getting ready for summer time racing in beautiful Newport, RI.

Ninkasi Heineken Light owned by John Taylor is enjoying a springtime sailing session in Palm Beach, Florida and will be heading to the Northeast mid-June to participate in the 2019 Summer/Fall TF10 racing season.

Over the summer months, another TF10 will be delivered in Newport where the Class will begin its first official racing appointments, and continues a very active test drive schedule.
