    Some extra zigzags it seems not to get at the finish line in the very dark hours. Gitana to finish shortly, the RC is on it's way to meet her. Well done! EDIT: live coverage here

    Thanks for that doc JB. Sidestep; missing the VG chairman's lunch on Oct 18th, 2020 will cost a skipper EUR 2.000

    Thanks for that addendum Fiji, created October 26th. The south cardinal was included as mark. The RC put it in red and bold.

    I read the SI’s three times for this mark, but I can’t find a mark other than the green buoy which is part of the finish line. Do they mean the south cardinal below the Bank of St Anthony? That is not in my version of the SI’s FWIW.

    Just a tip. Copy-pasting these twitter links do not display well here, due to the black background. If you take a screen shot and paste it in the post it's readable.

    Congratulations to Kévin and Nicolas fending off Charal, a deserved 2nd place imho.

    PRB is almost there, they have found her thrusters and is moving @ 18 kts while Charal is @ 14 kts. DTL up to 2.4 nm. PRB made a small detour around the southern cardinal buoy for the Bank of St. Anthony. Charal too. Unless something breaks, PRB should take that 2nd place.

    Not at a windspeed of 10 knots according to the polar here; http://zezo.org/tjv60/polars.html?opt=0 If you enter 10 kts windspeed in the box below, and click on the foiler button below, the target boat speed does not change.

    What a race for 2nd! And at least 2 more gybes needed.

    I presume PRB was looking for more pressure and wind outside off the coast. Or a better broad reaching angle. Or both. But has cost them dearly. You only have to stay clear of the Bank of St. Anthony which lays due south of the entrance to the bay. PRB gybed, maybe a late attempt to cover Charal. Charal is at 2.1 nm within striking distance.

    Indeed, nice city marketing. Take the numbers with a sniff of salt. Or two.

    Almost there, congratulations Apivia! I’m off to bed.

    The tracker has gone near live with 10 minutes intervals. Nice work TJV and Georacing. Unless I’m mistaken and the wind vanishes, the ETA for Apivia is shortened. Wind stays up for now. DTF 38 nm / 19 kts = +/- 2 hours sailing. ETA is +/- 00:30 IMHO, based on extrapolation and if the wind stays as now.
