Transpac: Cal-40 SEQUOIA's two year restoration project for the 2017 race

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

BERKELEY, CA – SEQUOIA, a classic Cal-40, completed a two-year restoration project by competing in the 2017 Transpac. The project was the brainchild of Schaefer Marine President Fred Cook, who acquired the Cal-40 (at no cost!) after it had been sitting at Berkeley Marine for fifteen years, according to Berkeley Marine owner Cree Partridge. Fred began the restoration in 2015 and produced 28 video episodes of the restoration process and their preparation for the 2017 Transpac. 

 

As SEQUOIA came out of the water she wasn’t much to look at after fifteen years of neglect. The big move was inverting the boat to properly work on the hull in Episode 7.

 

All 28 videos are available on YouTube here. SI's readers will particularly enjoy the final video on delivering the boat from San Francisco to Long Beach for last week's Transpac start, below.

 

 

As of the time of this post, SEQUOIA is standing a respectable 3rd in Division 7....
