Ted Kaufman is determined that this fine yacht's reputation of top point scorer in the Admirals Cup series this year and a place-getter in every race she has started in will continue. She will again be meeting her rival "Pen Duick III" in this race and the contest between them will be most interesting. Since returning from England, "Mercedes III" has gained line honours, 1st overall and first in Division I in the CYCA Port Hacking Race on her first outing.
