Announcing Manny Gomez as the New Pac52 Class Manager

November 28, 2018

The Pac52 Class is proud to welcome Manny Gomez as the new Class Manager of the Pac52 Class. Manny is an experienced racer having crewed for multiple Pac52s over the last few seasons, and will be a great addition to the Class.

Manny introducing himself: "I am thrilled and honored to have been chosen by the owners as the Pac 52 Class manager for 2019. I have raced on 52s since 2014, on Victor Wild’s TP52 BUD and then on his new build FOX. In 2018, I joined Manouch Moshayedi’s RIO for Yachting Cup and for Cal Race Week.

I am looking forward to working with everyone from the owners, media team, webmaster, yacht clubs and last but not least the sailors, to have fair and fun grand prix yacht racing on the West Coast. I want to thank Julie Servais, former class manager for all of her hard work the past 2 seasons. I look forward to building upon Julie’s legacy and welcoming more yachts and owners in 2019 and beyond."

The Rio Continues To Roll

By Erik Simonson, Pac52 Media | September 30, 2018

Saturday’s dawn broke over the San Francisco Bay Area with a tropical flare if you will, very reminiscent of the warmth and humidity one might experience in Rio, the iconic beach city of Brazil, from which Manouch Moshayedi’s Ferrari Orange 52’ has inherited her name. It is a tad bit complicated, but the chain of grand prix boats the Moshayedi has owned has born the name.
