I loved the distance race.
Why would boats go inside of a boat which is already aground? Throw away a day of racing and make a bonehead move like that, a quarter mile from the finish. Mad Cat ran aground at the last day mark two boat lengths in front of us. We had to dive hard to not drive up their ass. It would have been wise for the SI's to include something about the shoal which extended beyond the day mark.
Yea, I was in the back of the boat, guiding my driver through the pack. We were doing 6.5 - 7kn chasing the Kitty through a bunch of small boats so things went bad pretty quick. Bad on us for not looking closer at the charts. Ass -u-me that for assuming the RC wouldn't take us where there was no water. Had we finished and held on to 4th or 5th where we were when we hit instead of DNF -11pts - we were in the hunt for first overall. Seems I got some of that mud we hit on my face! Leroi/Voodoo2
