Rocking Baby (solar boat) and SeaDog Rocket (Nacra 20?) appear to have stopped at Cape Sable. There's about 10 boats on the outside route between Choko and Cape Sable...no idea who may stop and who may press on. Zero the Hero and Green Mountain Girl are underway from CP2, appear to be the first boat taking the Wilderness Waterway. I'm gonna guess they're going to stop at a chickee at some point tonight.
Randy reported finished about an hour ago. My understanding was by starting at Ft DeSoto during SCA he wouldn't be scored. Apparently he is. Reported time 3 days, 10 hours, 9 minutes, but the clock started sat morning, so subtract 24 hours for actual sailing time.

He should be scored,Water Tribe lore,
....USCG....has bigger fish to fry.....
makes no difference to me either way. I was told by a volunteer his understanding was he wouldn't be scored. But Chief's 'rules' are flexible, depending on who's asking.




Hence why I asked where he started. It's probably a personal thing for him to know what he can or can't do. I think once we get older we don't give a shit.

Looks like Randy only has 4 or 5 miles to go!

Here's a decent looking Windmill on Ebay for $595.  There have been some Windmill fans on here before if memory serves.

29 minutes(as opposed to the usual 10) since Randy's spot updated. Track shows a hard turn to port toward the beach.......

Tnx for bringing that up...interesting. NW Cape Sable... Could be a repair or rest stop, could also just be a tack inshore to calmer water, or he went to beach to shorten sail in anticipation of beat to Flamingo.. He's roughly 2 hours from CP3, plenty of daylight left.


He appears to have tacked backed out.
