Scuttlebutt Photos: 2005 Transpac

(July 18, 2005) At the start of the 2005 Transpac on Sunday, July 17th, it looks like they ran out of steering wheels on Genuine Risk. Owner Randall Pittman gets to use the big weather wheel while Dave Ullman uses the smaller wheel to leeward, leaving Ken Read (in white) without a wheel. However, ...

... Read is still looking important compared to Russell Coutts (below), who is sailing with Hasso Plattner on Morning Glory. Coutts isn't using the second wheel, is looking a bit like a passenger, and actually appears ready for impact. Russell probably knows it's a long race, and we know that you can't judge a book by the cover.
