    Hmmm... Reasonably priced, but this retailer https://us.binnacle.com/p11449/Salus-Coastal-Vest-with-Safety-Harness/product_info.html#description says it is NOT USCG approved. Kind of a shame as it looked to fill the void in the market. What does it take to get approved?

    Imedi in now entering the harbor after searching through the night - 17+ hours. Hoping they are not mobbed by reporters. Gotta be very tough for them.

    Pray for this crewman. It has been 4:45 hours since the MOB and the sun sets in one hour.

    Currently 22 boats out of the race and Imedi still near the MOB point with 3 or 4 other boats in the same general area.

    I was on a Chance 32/28 during that 1985 race with 6 other crew – it was Lake Huron at her worst. We sailed past the USCG Bramble was trying to hold station and give some wind and wave cover to Maxitrol during the patient transfer. My thought at the time was that given the sea state and how the two boats were banging against one another they would never get that guy off the boat. Just before sunset some of the crew became seasick and by the time it was dark there were only 2 of us running the boat. Five were down below unable to function. One guy is vomiting over the leeside and every time he came out he was soaked by water coming over the boat. Now we’re sailing off the lee shore of Manitoulin Island and no one capable of giving us a loran fix. We’re under storm jib and double reefed main and tacking through about 135 degrees. All night long the pattern was the same – drive up a steep wave, nearly stall, then surf down the backside and crash to a halt when we hit the trough. By daybreak we’d had enough. During the night we only made about 15NM of forward progress with 90 NM to go. The sea and winds were down only slightly, but still on the nose and I was very concerned how two of us could go the distance. We sailed back to South Baymouth for shelter where we learned 2/3rds of the boats in our class had retired.

    Yeah, Lois that way. Doing 8.5 knots at 305 degrees and 30 NM south of the Cove buoy. In the last 12 hours they only made 38NM of headway. Windy.com shows 10 knots of wind out of the SSE, while on the east side of the lake has light (3-5) winds and variable.
