GREAT OCEAN RACE
Coquina is a veterna of several Great Ocean Races.
This article was written about the first one we raced in. Something not mentioned
was that the boat was freshly launched and rigged after a paint job and the
running lights were wired on the way to the start. This also accounts for the
hurried stowage of supplies. This race was one of the roughest I have even been
in. Note the "well equiped" nav station had a depthfinder and an RDF! Our competition
included another C&C 35 and a C&C 33 3/4 ton special. They were both
hours behind us :-)

Lady Jane Burns!
I believe this is from 1981 or 1982. Coquina is visible in the start photo with our sail number 11859 on the main and number 1 genoa. Lady Jane was far enough behind us that we were not aware of these events when they happened. These are scans of poor copies that have been in a shed for decades now, so the quality is a bit off.
