Absolutely smoking northeasterly wind in Hobart now. 20-30 knots and gusty. I can only imagine what it will be in Storm Bay.

Don't think WOXI is worried about it (the front).  AT 20+knots she'll be home in time for tea...

 

 

Holy shit.... almost 23 knots and way way out front. I thought she snuck through a light air hole being skiny but not so.

There is only one boat currently in Storm Bay and it is recording 20 from 038.  32 recorded at Tasman Island.

 

WO should finish somewhere around 2000 Saturday so no storm worries there.

 

Look for something around 50 ft to turn right just in the nick of time and come screaming up Storm Bay at 20+ knots.

Storm Bay Forecast

View the current warnings for Tasmania

Forecast issued at 10:46 am EDT on Saturday 28 December 2013.

Weather Situation

A ridge of high pressure lies to the east of Tasmanian as a trough and cold front approach the state from the west.

The trough and front are expected to cross later this afternoon and evening with an associated low to pass to the south of the state tonight.

This low will deepen as it moves further away to the southeast on Sunday, maintaining a strong west to southwesterly flow over Tasmania.

A ridge will extend to the north of the state later on Sunday, then persist on Monday with a front embedded in the westerly flow to cross during the afternoon.

The high centre moves out over the Tasman Sea later on Tuesday.

Well Estar I'm not strictly using a weather service, just my own calculations based on what is available from BOM.

 

The cold front has slowed down and is being pushed South.  Flinders Island will only see the very top of it late Saturday night in the form of NW breeze veering to W.  There shouldn't be too much carnage amongst a fleet heading South.  It will be daylight Sunday before the NE coast of Tasmania sees a southerly.  The winner looks like being someone who can turn right just in time and sail up the river at full speed before a 30 knot southerly.

 

Maybe a TP52 ?

 

This map is only 2 hours old.

Hey, Clean...  Are you likely to still be around when (if) Black Adder gets there?  They oughta get some swag just for being committed enough to get there.  At the rate they've been going, they'll be DFL by a couple days.

 

I leave around noon on the second, just keep me posted and if they beat my plane here, I'll be there to give them whatever I can save.

Clean, If you have a spare hour, there's not much more relaxing than www.larkdistillery.com.au/ in Davey St, a short walk from Salamanca.

Oats showing 4 knots more boat speed than Loyal and is now 50nm in front with less than 100nm to go to the finish.

 

Record has been lost so I hope they are throttling off and just get her in safely in first place.

Could be the wind angle but looks like BJ has finally got past Giacomo. The more agressive sea state will probably suit the heavier BJ from now too. Currently sitting in 4th spot

 

Looks like the first three are pretty firmly in place.

 

Good race between WT, BG, GIA and BJ happening though.

WOXI now looking good for the double if they do manage to get in prior to the westerly front hitting and on present ETA they will, but I'd guess they'll be an hour or two later.  They have a real incentive to put the hammer down to minimise the risk they spend a lotta time in the westerly - there's a serious weather gate and at present only WOXI looks capable of getting through it..

Yeah I didn't say they where throttling off, just saying they should. I just looked again and saw that 23 too and cracked a big smile. Being on the deck of WOXI right now would be one best places in the world to be, the mood would be electric!

Clean is talking to god on the big white telephone...... After a Hobart curried scallop pie!!

Still haven't had the scallop pie but holy crap i had a prawn/scallop/calamari pizza last night that blew my fucking mind.  I really, really like Tassie so far.
 I

?Best breakfast in a year:  Machine (on Salamanca). Will sample all the little fry shops on the waterfront later.


Hey clean , Mrs Barry would love to know where you got that pizza.

Currently 14 knots from 030 in Storm Bay and roughly 30 from NNE at Tasman Island.

 

Anyone who has to punch into a big NW breeze to finish will lose many places.  WO does have a good chance of beating it in.  Boats like Beau Geste, Wild Thing and Giacomo might do it tough up the Derwent.

 

Do they get sunfish in that area ?

There is a big reverse current eddy about where the second group of boats are which should give a huge speed assist in towards Storm Bay. Wild Oats is on the edge of it now. It gives a nice sling-shot with a smoking reach. Probably a bit smoother water too.

Anyone for a forecast for 2014 Hobart yet?

 
 
Esmit come down for a crack, Lahana's new owner bring her back after mods and someone charters Leopard so we see every 100ft maxi in the same race?

Where else will Oats have foils?
 
 
There are some really strangely shaped holes up the front of WO I saw at the start. I'll try and find some pics.

Yo Clean! What do I win for picking the first three places back on page four of this thread? 

Before we knew if oats was going to use DIY DSS?

Before we knew if it was old mast or new on Oats?

I called the split between Loyal and Rags at two or three hours, that should be around the money too!

 

And all this from my work desktop when I should have been working  armchair 10 days ago. I'm not on the good book.

Good race so far from a yank's view. 8 year old boat leading the way! Great underdog, even if it has  fins and foils hanging out of it's skivvies!!!

Beau Geste just passed GIA and she'll get BJ too in the next couple of hours.  That'll push her into 4th on the line.

 

BJ looks to have the goods over GIA now so it's just a matter of whether or not WT can get past the 70's.

30 knots could come out of WO, PL BG or the 2 Volvo 70's reaching across storm bay. It would be hard (but not impossible) exceeding 25 knots with the wind behind.

Varuna catching ICHI which is a good effort considering they are 9 feet shorter and lack the Hobart expereince of the ICHI guys.

Interesting how WOXI is hitting high 20's and that none of the other 100's or the 70's and BG only getting close to 20. Three more gybes for WOXI and away.Can't see the order changing now short of a disaster or two. BG to pass BJ though..............

3pm and ABC informing viewers of light winds and fog causing havoc for the fleet at present and calling it one of the slower runs in the race's history. WTF??? When I did it it took 4-5+ days.

 

Wish they would update information once in a while!

 

Still, think this is one of the better races.

McConaghy Boats leading the way in the Rolex Sydney Hobart

   

Hobart, Tasmania (28 December 2013) - As the lead boats head for the home stretch in the exhilarating 2013 Rolex Sydney Hobart Yacht Race, Bob Oatley’s WILD OATS XI (“WOXI”) looks to have an unassailable lead over perhaps the most competitive fleet ever assembled for the historic race.   

Despite trailing the newer and more powerful custom 100-foot PERPETUAL LOYAL for much of the race, WOXI’s crew showed near-flawless execution of their navigational and sailing plans overnight to open up a 26 NM lead over Anthony Bell’s ‘new kid on the block.’  With a powerful Nor’easter developing over the fleet, Wild Oats XI is now screaming toward Storm Bay; the McConaghy Boats-built Reichel/Pugh design is averaging over 22 knots with no sign of backing off the throttle.  Meanwhile, Perpetual Loyal is sailing at a more pedestrian 16.5 knots, her hopes of catching Wild Oats XI diminishing by the minute. 

Gale force winds of up to 45 knots are predicted later tonight or early Sunday, which may favor the smaller boats fighting for handicap placings - provided they can stand up to the sporty conditions.  One of those boats has seen much worse in her nearly 30 years of life - she’s Roger Hickman's historic McConaghy-built Wild Rose (ex-Wild Oats), and she currently leads the fleet overall on both IRC and ORCi handicap. Separated by almost 25 years, another McConaghy-built star performer, the 55 foot Reichel/Pugh Wedgetail (ex-Yendys), also looks to have a strong chance at a podium finish on both handicap schemes. 

The newest boat out of the McConaghy stable is Ker 46 Patrice, who currently leads her division on IRC, trailing another McConaghy/Ker comboKerumba for ORCi class honors.  Finally, the new Ker 40 Midnight Rambler is fighting for position as well, and she looks strong for a solid placing on the handicap leaderboard. 

It will be a long night ahead for many of the smaller boats, and all of us at McConaghy wish a safe crossing to the entire fleet.  We will continue to bring you constant updates from the finish line here in Tasmania as well as on-board call-ins with many of the team navigators via our Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/mcconaghyboats

McConaghy Boats Special Reporter and Sailing Anarchy Senior Editor “Mr. Clean” spoke to Michael “Cocko” Coxen about the fleet, the conditions, and this historic race in an informative 16-minute interview recorded this morning, click here to listen to the interview

And for a bit of fun and luck, we’ve just launched a Sydney-Hobart contest to win some great swag from McConaghy and Sailing Anarchy; Click Here for the rules and conditions, and good luck!

At present it is a one tack fetch into the finish up the Derwent River so will be a super-fast finish if the wind direction and speed holds out..

Everyone's getting ready to go out on the boats for the run up the river.  Maybe another hour before we shove off.  I'm braving it in shorts, goddamned gorgeous day here today.  Way nicer than it was in Sydney!
