More Crazy-Ass Weather on Day 2

Recommended Posts

Well, at least I grabbed some interviews to occupy you for a little while. Of course you can feel free to browse the Girls of Porto Cervo thread in the meantime. Funny part about that is that more folks have read that thread than the racing yesterday...and I'M the pervert?

 

Here's the Volvo hospitality tent and IMCA Class President Gunter Teschlock.

This hasn't been as interactive an OTW Anarchy report as usual - feel free to post your own information if you find anything interesting on the web - updated results, other reports, and any of the dozens of team blogs out there are great info, and it'll help us out if you help find it. Cheers, and thanks.

 

Here's yotting journo Justin Chisholm, trimmer aboard Barbarians lying in fifth.

Brian Janney (a/k/a boyscout) on crewing for a newbie owner. The owner of Storm brought the scout and Brian Hutchinson over to get him up to speed for his first worlds - good choices!

 

 

Some aimless dock wandering, looking for eye candy and interviewees.

That's two general recalls! Waiting for the third, and thinking we might be looking at the black flag of death...

Still in postponement, temp is up to 80 degrees or more, when four hours ago it was 60, pissing down rain.

They're sending us in to await possible signals ashore. Our driver, longtime local capitano Eduardo, says "I dona think theres a wind today."

 

 

 

I'll see about getting some interviews after I track down some beer.

From the official site: At 1512, the race committee signaled AP over Alpha indicating there will be no further racing today.

 

Some photos and an interview with Norwegian Nina, a blonde beauty owner/tactician of a boat that couldn't make it down, as well as some film boats coming in. and a few more. and a few more.

Just bummed that there wasn't more action. Yesterday was sort of annoying, with whacked out conditions, and today a sunbathing day. Forecast is for more light tomorrow, then the possibility of a Mistral on Wednesday if we're very lucky.
