Swiftsure yacht race wraps up with near

Swift winds and currents made for an exceptional 72nd Swiftsure International Yacht Race except for one sailor who was tossed overboard.

The exception was one sailor aboard Beats Per Minute out of Seattle in the Cape Flattery monohull race. She was tossed overboard near the rounding mark at Neah Bay, Burkhardt said.

The sailor was in a life jacket and tethered to the boat. Upon being quickly retrieved she was put below deck and warmed, organizers said.

"It wasn't declared an emergency because the onboard skipper said she was fine," Burkhardt said. "She was not hypothermic, just very cold."

The rest of the races went off without a hitch with many fast races, Burkhardt said.

Almost 200 boats crewed by van cleef necklace alhambra fake nearly 1,800 sailors from yacht clubs from all over the Puget Sound, Vancouver, Oregon and Vancouver Island competed.

In years when winds have been low to nonexistent, the race has been mockingly referred to as "Driftsure."

The Swiftsure International Yacht Race is hosted by the Royal Victoria Yacht Club.

The event featured five races held concurrently. There were four long course events Swiftsure Lightship Classic (138.2 nautical miles), Hein Bank Race (118.1 nautical miles), Cape Flattery Race (101.9 nautical miles) and Juan de Fuca Race (78.7 nautical miles).

There was also the shorter Swiftsure Inshore Classic designed to finish in Cadboro Bay before dinner on Saturday. "For people who don't want to sail overnight," Burkhardt said.
