Hello people,

The finishing flood has started. 

Nice job to Awkward, your arse must be in tatters from Your Mom snapping at it over the last few hours.

Here are the rankings as of 01:00UTC.  If you post your details as Mr Fixit has done above then I will add this info into the spreadsheet.  Please yell is something is wrong.

The finishing percentile is based on 47,058 skippers who entered this leg.

Shorty will add in the Group C info and resort this data.

In the immortal words of LL Cool J...  "Don't call it a comeback.  I've been here for years. ...  Mama said knock you out."

 

Really wanted to catch Awkward Turtle, but he held me off.  Outstanding racing, folks.  The fleet is incredibly strong.  Mind-boggling that none of us broke the top 100.  It's not like we raced poorly.

Oops fell asleep last night & didn't get my routing sorted, lost a few places (1hr) overnight, but  not a bad result considering start of race was pure gesstimate/routing as was offline for 2+days, incl the first 36hours of the race.

Congrats to Awkward Turtle aka @rolltak for the internal win, well sailed. Also thanks as usual to @Tunnel Rat and @Shorthanded for the internal scorekeeping.

Finished 1143rd in 15d 11h 20m 08s  with 5624.2 NM sailed.

Found my landing gear on the VOR65 and also managed to leave a red boat behind me ;) :D

Nice work all! Once more an excellent showing from SAers. Well done to mongrel as will for taking the highly converted top step on the Hong Kong Podium. An extremely disappointing last 24 hours getting overtaken by seemingly everyone. I shall be back for the next leg for another inevitable top 20!

Almost nipped Gybe Turkey at the line, and thought I did as my initial finish was recorded as 147th. Alas the home office corrected it to 151 just behind. 

Good fun, see everyone next leg.

Nice leg Turtle congrats!!!

 

  

Thanks to everyone for the kind words! I think this group is lucky to have 'Your Mom' showing us (and helping us) along the way. For me, sailing against him is like playing against the computer...quite a benchmark for us all! This leg, he showed us that even when he is behind you, he is coming! On top of that, he will answer any questions we have about the game and even tell us what he plans to do...up until the end of the legs ;) 

Nice sailing Mom!

Yes Turtle, way to go, you sailed a great leg.  And Mom, what can I say. I couldn't see you finish cuz my boat icon was in the way. Helluva job dude.

Hello,

All the kind words are appreciated (although i don't think I've ever been called an aggregator before!), I wouldn't be doing it if I didn't find it quite interesting.

Here are the 01:00UTC rankings with all the finish info that has been posted so far. Some tight racing still taking place out on the course.

HB - 6788th - 16d 4h 30m 38s - 5, 527.7nm

Thanks to the scorekeepers..truly a thankless job.

@GrandbendOnt is gonna be on my ass the next leg after he let me pass him in the last few hours on this one..He came in too far north, and I was as hot as I could get at 90-110 TWA depending on the pressure for the last 12 hours.

GBO,  see you in the next leg across the Atlantic, I am sure we'll be fighting each other in the back part of the pack again!! B)

On a personal note, I think that level of racing that the SA gang are providing is several notches above anything we have done before.  I thoroughly enjoyed my ding-dong battle with HKG1203, if I made a mistake he would pounce on it, if he went drinking i got through.

I was generally very happy with my race, especially keeping Your Mom behind me until close to Bermuda. But then it was rather humbling to see him negotiate every transition just that little bit better and always be in 0.1kts more wind with a 1° or 2° better wind angle and slowly but smoothly more through the fleet.  Always performing better than the Zezo predictions.  Very impressive.

Nice to have a rest, then back into it for Leg 9 in 11 Days!

Informal poll, not set up as a poll per say....

Raise your hand if you were in front of Mom during some point this leg, and finished miles behind.

TeamSatisfaction had him behind me for meaningful hours/days.  

What sayeth you?

Wasn't going to do this leg as didn't really have the time, but looked at it and thought it's not going to take too much time with long legs of not doing much.

 

A-Squared finished - 4592th - 5593.3Nm - 15d 23h 37m 50s

You know, @Tunnel Rat, you are right. I was bitching and complaining early in this leg. The competition is fierce at all ends of the spectrum and that keeps us all sharp. I did the Zezo thing one go-around and it was too much work for me. This is a fun group to race with/against, even down here in SA 40-something rankings.

Ice and snow is gone.  I'm at the same Lat as GrandBend.  And it actually was warm today.

It does..however, this is a 2000something  Catalina 42 panel in a Catalina 30. I have no TV ( I get on the boat to get away from TV), the shower is a "Sun Shower" I hang from the shroud into the head window, and there is for sure NO electric head. :D

The "Radar" switch is 20 amps, so it is strong enough to power the anchor washdown i just installed last summer..that is gonna be a huge upgrade to the bucket and a brush!

I am probably only running 1/2 of the available circuits. The "shower drain pumps" actually runs the 12v cig lighter plugs for charging cell phones. :)

I had YM behind me coming up the Brazilian coast, then he just kept coming and coming, one day he was behind and to leeward, a day or two later he was to windward and in front of me. The top guys like YM, Toppen, Sideshow etc are just too wise when it comes to the finer points of how the VR game plays, the rest of us are just poor plebes.

Hello,

Only one finisher in the last 24hrs - razcaillou.  Team False Racing is taking an extended tour of the Dens of Iniquity in Galilee (if a place called Galilee has any Dens of Iniquity) and Divided Sky is doing artwork in the western Atlantic.  To me it looks like an eagle's head, any other guesses?

Rankings from 00:30UTC.

Cheers,

TR

I’d prefer not to talk about it because I’m doing so poorly. Thinking about heading to Hawaii.

Argh. 27,991st. 5,852.1 NM, 18d, 13h, 44m, 26s. The sad part is that this is actually better than my last two beercan races- both DNF (no wind)!

Hello,

Here are the rankings from 01:00UTC.  Fry has decided to make a tour of Nantucket Island - presumably to compare notes with Tea, False Racing who has obviously found something very much to his liking in Galilee as he is still there.

No rankings tomorrow.

Cheers,

TR
