    Trans-Atlantic Race

    It doesn't take much for the yellowbricks to fail. I had one fail during a lauderdale to key west race that was pretty dry... Ours also stopped working early on in the 2015 TR Do you think the rest of the boats in IRC 2 will have a chance to catch up to Aegir?

    Moth Developement

    old news but i really like the commitment to endplate on this build. There are also photos somewhere of his main and vang set up. (i don't own a moth, and am FAR too big for one at 6'7 & 260 lbs. I think they are cool and follow them as much as i can).

    what is it?

    Looks like double cam cleats in the right spot? Tough to tell though.

    The Pstar moulds have been shipped to sweden. The first one came out of the mould early december.

    what is it?

    Definitely a folli with a weird chine (gmacon is right about the shroud ramps). You can also see the hardware fore aft backstays. Maybe an old proof of concept before finalizing the pstar? easier to work on the bottom when its upside down. no mention of upside down boats in the development unfortunately https://starclass.org/news/article/seahorse-magazine-article-upping-the-stakes Any idea where in the world this is?

    what is it?

    Star boat being faired somewhere.
  10. I guess I didn't make that clear enough. It does matter, but in a video I saw earlier mark richards said something along those lines.
  11. 11.4 Changes to Special Regulations • Special Regulation 4.09 (a): An AIS Transponder shall be carried and be switched on, such that it is receiving and transmitting. http://rolexsydneyhobart.com/media/3438679/rshyr-si-final.pdf Does anyone have a link to the interview with mark richards on the dock? I think he mentions having the tracker on but not AIS, and said something about being able to see the other boats the entire race so it shouldn't have mattered?

    Route du Rhum 2018

    last update had Alex at 8.8 knots. Looks like he is moving on for now.

    Route du Rhum 2018

    216 miles at 14.9 knots? (SMAs distance and 24 hour average) Thats 14.5 hours of runway even with alex parked. Hopefully he can limp in before being overtaken. assuming Alex can keep over 4 knots thats roughly 20 hours? This edition has certainly been a memorable one.
