33rd Cup - Race 1

Recommended Posts

Everything you need is at http://www.sailinganarchy.com/otwa

 

Except for what is here. We'll post as we can from the water on this thread, but we have no idea just how far our signal extends offshore. Live feed starts around 9. Racing at 10. It's 517 now. No rest for the wicked. But I do have a Pacifico.

 

Mer's slideshow from the leadup is in the photo thread here: http://forums.sailinganarchy.com/index.php?showforum=61

 

She tells a story differently from me but is every bit as good at it.

 

Only a few folks can create topics in OTW Anarchy - that's to keep it clean for chatting with you about the race. Trolls will disappear from here without a warning, so please keep it about the racing, though post whatever you want as long as it is immediate info (weather, updates from other places, etc.) on the subject.

 

Thanks all.

I had a call from TE moments ago and got a quick update -

 

It's raining with not a lot of wind at the moment. Expects some cells to come through but sounds like a wait for a stable system.

 

BOR did their final checklist and boat wash last night.

 

Both crews getting ready for their intros before going down to he boats.

 

Both crews are up beat and excited about racing

 

There will be sound and a camera on the RC. All on the RC boat (SNG RC, Club/Team Reps) are looking forward to a great event

 

TE saw Clean working hard at his show and interviewing the journo's

 

....

 

Not too long to go now folks!!!!

Hey Clean, big thanks to you and your team for all of this. We all envy your gig from time to time but really you have gone above and beyond this time and i'm sure everyone here appreciates it so, cheers mate!!

 

one requests, please get a close up of EB once he's been slammed (no pun intended toward our sponsor :P) and if you get close enough, ask him a nice cheeky question

We are streaming now but going too fast to talk. We are going to stop for a minute in about five to do an intro and let you know what is up and then boogie for the start about 20 NM away. Tell all your friens about this shit folks. Remember that we may not have signal out there but will come back as soon as we canand let you know fi that happens. AWESOME

Yes, he was announced (second to last) in the launch shown on the BOR site a few hours ago. Shaved the beard.

everyone would be dressed and ready to sail but only the ones listed will be officially on board.

there would also be a team to help them get to their location, set them up and then join the rest of the team in the tender

Dee Caffari is the Eurosport expert - Great! :angry:

 

My phone never even rang!

 

Her first insight: "I'm not really an expert on this type of sailing".

 

Great!!!

I have a glass of wine and my two kids are watching this with me (just because they can stay up). I'm explaining that the "where's wally" flag means postponement. It's all good.

I thought it was a "cat in the hat" flag ?!?!?

No - they say "where's wally". Final word goes to the 4 year old.

Live feed good on the 33rdAC website. It's the same feed as on Eurosport. Clean's feed doesn't seem to be working. I don't imagine there's much bandwidth out there! Maybe they should mosey up to the windward mark?

yup sorry.

 

Alinghi has a blue flag on it's boom and USA17 has a yellow flag on the batwings.

Alinghi put the burgy and "yacht club" name on the engine cover....

These ESPN commentators aren't very informed...
