From the depths of an old hard drive, we want to share an incredible image with you.

Back around 2005, battling a serious storm front and some pretty gnarly seas, a little Palm Beach 32 took on the mission to conquer the weather and make passage from Sydney to Sanctuary Cove for the SC boat show. It was a race against time. On this day, skippered by Palm Beach founder Mark Richards, a combination of his lead foot, fierce conditions, and a need for urgency to make the boat show, the Palm Beach 32 reigned supreme. They made the show, champagne fell from the heavens, and the red carpet was rolled out.

What a wonderful day.
