Submit the correct answer and become eligible for a free 6-month subscription of Seahorse International Sailing magazine, the essential read of every serious yachtsman and marine industry personality. 

All those who submit correct answers to any of the Transpac Trivia questions that will be posted from now through the final awards presentation on July 17, 2009 will be eligible for the grand prize drawing for a free 3-year subscription of Seahorse International Sailing magazine.
