The Los Angeles Yacht Club held their annual Midwinter Around Catalina Island Race the past weekend.

Starting the 80.0nm race next to Angels Gate Lighthouse, the PHRF handicap fleet of nearly twenty offshore racers head due west, leaving Catalina Island to port, then head back and finish at Angles Gate Lighthouse. It was a relatively quick race for the fleet, with the bigger boats getting around in about 16 hours.

Winning the PHRF A Division quite handily was Roger Gatewood's J/145 Katara, winning both class and fleet with a corrected time of 15:49:16.

Winning the PHRF B Division by a country mile was Doug and Jack Jorgensen's J/111 Picosa, crossing the line not far off the J/145 pace and correcting out to 17:04:53, good enough for fifth overall. Finally, taking the silver in PHRF B was Daniel Murphy's J/105 Cuchulainn.
