The winner of the 2009 TRANSAT arrived at 10.30 last night greeted by fireworks, music and a huge crowd in a celebratory mood. The runner up arrived only 45 minutes behind. First time ever a double hull contestant has won the competition ever and the organizers professed their satisfaction with Costa Rica as their goal line. This has put a lot of attention on our corner of the country and KOKi Beach is once again in the news with Art Nautica. Front page no less.
