J/145 BAD PAK won the San Diego Yacht Club's prestigious 2011 Yacht of the Year. With an excellent racing record that included winning their class in the Transpac Race 2011, Tom Holthus and crew sailed hard and fast, earning their keep to be one of the top crews on the California offshore racing circuit. Seen here is Tom and his family crew receiving the award at San Diego YC's Opening Day Ceremonies. Of note, this also marks the third time in five years that a J/Team has won SDYC's prestigious Yacht of the Year Award, previous winners were a J/120 and J/125!
