360--California: BYC Beercan Race in Newport Beach
@ Site News     Jul 14 2006 - 09:38 PST
Cherie writes: What makes “Heartbeat” pump? “It’s her amazing crew,” said owner Chuck Brewer II of NHYC.

Brewer bought “Heartbeat”, a Farr 45, last year to compete against Rose & Beery’s ID 48 “It’s OK.”. While Chuck’s boat may be new to the Newport Beach racing scene, his experienced crew isn’t. Tactician Carl Swaisgood has been sailing with Brewer for 22 years and most of the crew has been loyal to Chuck for over a decade.

At the Balboa Yacht Club Beercan race on July 13th “Heartbeat” had an incredible start that turned into a substantial lead. The day’s victory and honors went to “Heartbeat” and her crew. Enjoy these racing photos and get a glimpse into the life of local Newport Beach racing.
