    I generally agree with your post, but this stat is a fair way off. Your 5% is based on fatalities : races started. The odds of being killed would be fatalities : drivers starting races. 1018 races with 20 drivers on average (don’t know how accurate that is) = 20,360 starts. To 52 fatalities, that’s 0.2%. So if there’s been 5 keels lost over the years the risk of dying in an F1 race is something like 5 times greater than losing your keel in a Hobart. Of course the comparison isn’t apples for apples, so I’m not sure how helpful it is at all. IMO it’s enough to just note a 0.04% failure rate to prove the risk is piddling. I wouldn’t be surprised if the overall keel failure rate, across all sailboats everywhere doing anything, is less than 0.04%

    Yep. Would say congrats Matt Allen & crew but it’s only the first race in the series after all!

    They sailed a pretty bloody respectable race to be in the mix all the way and to end up where they did I reckon. If it is the case they lost a few miles for the shark even more so.

    6.1kt now. Bloody painful! 34nm to go, just inside 4 hours to do it (to pip Alive), and it’s just going to tick away in front of them

    Jeez I’d love to see what’s going on down there between BJ, WOXI and Scally Great shots, but the real takeaway is how great the new CYCA merch is and how many oceans of fun it is to sail at the CYCA

    Looking like a great fight for all positions on the line and a long time before all the quiet and strong races behind are sorted out. Little boats forecast to be in great breeze in 12 hours. Loving it Though not so sexy for IRC7 in 24 hours. Still looks good for a winner from IRC1 or IRC2

    Agreed. Nonsense stuff. Is the penalty for not reporting by HF strict & non-discretionary?
