Conflicting stories. I heard the main blew up
What happened to Dildo, lasted 1 hour into the Hobart Race and DNF in the Coffs ?
again and they dropped the boom on one of the wheels
From their FB page.
"Our Coffs race result: crossed alternate finish line outside coffs harbour due to 45knot storm after one day and 12h - second after ragamuffin on linehonours. Currently still DNF by club pending decision due to use of alternate finish without prior notice.
Thereafter, storm ripped our main and carbon jib forcing us to circle outside channel for another couple of hours. The storm has left its marks. Regardless of coffs harbour conditions and storm Dodo has done well and the team can be proud of the entire trip."
Hmmm .... must have been in a different Coffs Race. We didn't see over 25, no storms. As we arrived at around 4am Saturday the local police boat was towing Dildo in very very gingerly and we were specifically asked by the Water Police to give them plenty of space as they were on a long line... Yellowbrick Tracker saw them take a strange detour out to sea at the finish...
FB also shows photo of very f*cked up port wheel...
