    The 2018 Golden Globe Race

    In the mean time Slats has finally checked into Hobart after weeks of being trapped in light breeze by the exclusion zone. Said he had caught some fish but was spooled by some thing big on the approach to Hobart. Now 3,000 miles behind. Kind thoughts for Loic

    Annapolis - Powerboat on Sailboat Crime

    Glad I wasn't sitting on the rail

    what is it?

    WTF is the boat with a hat on, in the top right of the pic?

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    Just did a search of this topic and one word is missing. Prudent. It's a good adjective.

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    My interpretation of col regs 2. Is break any or every rule but don't have a collision. Both boats are in the wrong. Look no further. There was no moon that night (was there cloud?). How would Vestas appear to the fishing boat, coming out of the dark, no engine noise, doing 20 knots. Masthead lights would make it harder to pick the angle. Too many questions to type, many already asked.

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    The Volvo race website has removed the Daily live video show for Friday, and no Saturday show yet?

    VOR Leg 4 Melbourne to Honkers

    P to P started today and they won't get the southerly until tomorrow after sunrise. What are the chances of the VOR fleet ripping past at Byron? Or will they go wide?

    Oats has .9 m less draft than the Indian, to keep out of the ebb tide.

    Comanche is 1.985 to Oats 1.969 on IRC. What would you do?

    Close of Channel 7 news and a 5 second fade out helicopter shot of Comanche back to full main and close hauled heading up storm bay. Oats in the background. Derwent is an aboriginal word which means, where the wind goes to die.

    The race will restart at the the pot when the fat bottomed girl parks her lard in a run out tide. Low water at 9.45pm

    From the sailing instructions. 20. ALTERNATIVE PENALTIES (Amends RRS 44, 63.1 and 64) 20.1 BEFORE CLEARING TURNING MARKS Z/Y. (a) For an infringement of Part 2 of the RRS that occurs after the Preparatory Signal and prior to the boat clearing the relevant seamark (Mark Z/ Mark Y), the Two Turns Penalty under RRS 44.2 shall apply. (b) A boat which is found after a protest hearing to have infringed a rule of Part 2 of the RRS after the Preparatory Signal and prior to the boat clearing the relevant seamark (Mark Z/ Mark Y), shall receive a time penalty of not less than 5 minutes added to the boat’s elapsed time. The incident occurred between Mark V and Mark Z. Oats had an opportunity to do some spins. They are clearly confident a 5 minute time penalty if applied won't affect the end result.
