    Just another complaint about Mr. Clean

    Not sure what to say, besides: I am sorry. It probably doesn't matter but it was a joke and I did not mean to spout off and don't believe I did. Whatever...

    I didn't know running a hack sailing website was considered an "industry" but yeah, with a kid somehow you need to pay the bills...

    Seriously! Is it live somewhere else??? Plastic awareness is very important, but this seems to have an adverse effect?

    Who needs live coverage when you can watch live shapes on a screen... Seriously, it is ridiculous how much fun it is to watch a live tracker!

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    Yes, I guess you are right. Just looked up a few pics. Saw the speed drop to 19 kts for about 5 minutes - not a big worry indeed!

    Skagen does not seem to slow them down much. Brunel to poke out soon again

    Just to be clear: that is not a thought experiment. There are rules.

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    I am a bit baffled by the strategy of TTTP: They seemed to be winning the drag race from Dongfeng, so why sail a higher course, which will bring them closer to Skagen, with a wind shadow, which should be avoided. Are they waiting to change gears? and bear down on DF?

    Thanks for pointing to that. Wow. Brunel is in a different league in their home waters... with all the sea water it is hard to say whether MAPFRE crew is either ready to cry or already crying.

    I am not familiar with the Goteborg, but I assume there are a ton of rocks to avoid. Might be tricky in these conditions, and VOR really cannot deal with another finish disaster... Makes me think they might do more "offshore" finishes in the future, although that idea has been called stupid by some.

    Shitty of epic? You need to work on your PR for NS weather

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    down to 1.0 miles... 325 miles to go... wow!

    VOR Leg 10 Cardiff to Gothenburg

    At that latitude this time of the year I don't think there are too many minutes without daylight anyway, but yes, nice to have an actual daytime finish!

    This is the kind of breeze Brunel (as well as the other Dutch entry) always seems to do really well in. Go Brunel!
