Crosswinds had a small hole in their hull and had to retire. They radioed the CG and at least two racing boats stood by. They are all safe and the boat is now on the travel lift in Marathon Key.

Sorry for the long hiatus, lots of hard wet work in the cold, kite up to try to reel in carinthia (30 degrees too low but fast is fun) then to the number 3 to reach up to the mark at 9-10 knots, now sitting on this freezing rail, feet soaked and just a mile or two from the finish.


I got out here around 8:30 - Thin Ice was the first boat I saw finish in full hike mode. You guys actually were HTFU. Nice work.

OH NO the result sheet has Thin Ice first in IRC B. Clean will be drunk which can only mean a trip to the Klink.
Congrats

Still here at the finish line. I've taken a bunch of shots of the boats finishing (especially those who sent me blog updates) and have them posted on the sorc blog.

Check out team work using the alternate finish.

If Crosswinds is an F-27 Formula, why on earth would they need any outside assistance for leak??? It will be interesting to hear what (speedo, ama hatch or port, etc.) leaked. Nice to have boats standby, but you'd think they would pretty safe with three hulls.

What I heard from people on the course is that they were actively taking on water - as in around 18" of water and were actively bailing.

Glad to hear Crosswinds is safe.

As far as the race, usual no sleep affair for yours truly. Sol pulls another class win out, big Swan loves them some reaching! Had a really fun tussle with Badfish all night long, finished about 20 mins or so in front of 'em, around dawn. Got to get etched on the Bolero Trophy again, so a successful journey.

Rum time.

Everyone's safe so we can make jokes, right? The boat is foam cored (read, cannot sink), and each ama individually can support much more than the weight of the boat, right? Archimedes be damned, we're sinking!

Granted, it was dark and they were almost five miles from shore in warm water, but this is funny. The F-27 draws about 18" with the board up, a leak in the hull would cause the water in the hull to rise to about 18" as the ama flotation kicks in. It will reach a static condition, bailing will just make room for the same volume of water to enter.

Sol, I know you've been sleeping b/c you haven't been here. My question is, how long do I have to rest before it's time to play?

Six boats a fleet makes? An Armada would be how many?

For grins, why not apply your KWRW-colored glasses to this event re: rating rules, class splits, numbers, etc.

For someone who has always been racing and not watching, LZ's software is great. I have no idea what it costs but would hope that it is priced per entrant to make it more accessible to small races. It almost wants me to believe in the internet as a good thing, vice all the blogs on people telling the world that they are still breathing.

We just cut one of the marks - that lighthouse in my facebook pictures link above - really close, and got down to 7.5 feet or so, and the water is so clear that it looks like you can stand there.

We are packing up now for the slog north, with the forecast swing to the SE delayed and an engine that doesn't want to push to high RPMS this is going to be a hate mission. I'll post some reports from the delivery if anything fun happens, then coming back down to KW to party for a couple of days.

Reading this thread the best I can figure out, Sol sailed on Dragon Fly Plus, which I did too, but I didn't see any litle old jewish guy on board, certainly not a busy one.

Nice job with ION Earth, but you could of saved some money, Carinthia and Dragonfly Plus could of shared a transponder, Carinthia was riding our second wave for how many hours? Sol said he could of thrown them a beer, they were so close for so long we could of handed them a case, can by can. Level racing at its best!

When a friend asked me last week what delivering the boat back would be like, I told him that the forecast looked like it would be an easy reach home, but that my experience dictated a broken engine and a dead beat all the way to Miami.

After two hours playing with the fuel filter and then fuel pump, my forecast was on the fucking money. Now we have to conserve power so we can navigate the Hawk Channel with good software and avoid hitting a reef, so my laptop will not be running for long. Hate mission coming up!

Fuck me.
