Pac 52 Invisible Hand has successfully completed their first offshore event, the SoCal 300 during the 2017 California Offshore Race Week.

Invisible Hand was the overall SoCal 300 winning champion out of 28 boats. According to the tactician, Gavin Brady, the team entered into the race to qualify for the Transpac. "We have always wanted to do this race. Not a lot of races are run this way and the way the points work out, you need four really good legs. It's one of the hardest trophies to win in the United States."

Pictured below is Invisible hand with her Code sail in flight. This Stratis Code sail was developed using custom laid radial panels that allows greater control over the shaping. The result is a super stable shape that has a very large wind range from high angles in lighter airs to blast reaching in heavier conditions. It's a winner.
