Div 2 and 4 look very interesting with a lot of HP representing.

Does Pyewacket have a lock on the Brarndoor or does Lucky have a chance?

Will be a fun one to watch!

Lucky would need lighter to very light conditions to trouble Pyewacket. In the Fastnet Race 2019 Wizard a Turbo'd Volvo 70 finished around 4 hours ahead of Lucky from memory. Wind conditions/angle will play a big part 2 but over the distance of the race and with the usual conditions Pyewacket will be a way ahead of Lucky.

So, what would be the time diff with a "turbo VO70"?

Glad to sail on small boats with no turbos.

What do we count as a turbo VO70 these days? Wizard is certainly a well cared for, prepared, optimised VO70 both now and before when it was Giacomo with a relatively new rig seeing as it was dismasted during a Hobart?

Yes Wizard I believe has a Turbo'd rig and longer spirit along with some custom sails and they’re now using a whisker pole reaching with the J0, a concept they took from the VO65 apparently. And Pyewacket is a turbo-charged Juan Kouyoumdjian-designed Volvo 70.

Pyewacket have a longer keel with lighter bulb, 1 meter taller mast and a longer prod. I think Rambler 88 ended making similar changes to their boat with some big gains. Some might remember Wizard was leading the Transpacfic race against Scallywag 100 and it wasn't until the end in the lighter conditions that Scallywag overhauled them.

bigrpowr,

I'm not shore calling Scallywag a "turd 100" is a fair thing. The designer of the hull is a very good designer ex America's cup for 4 plus challengers  and was working with a tight ass owner and the new boat captain / new owners rep still hasn't spent the kind of money or changed the boat like they did on Black Jack 70 / Pyewacket. 

 

I still think that a new deeper keel and taller mast on Scallywag and a brains trust like Blackjack 100 and you would still have a great boat.

Andy Dovell did some great work for me and it turned to gold.! And one of the nicest guys if not the nicest you'll ever meet. Got to remember Scallywag was a re-cycle project started by Syd Fisher. It's always hard recycling rigs, decks or whatever they had to onto the Dovell Hull. I know Mark Richards was well aware of the boats potential because he knows Andy's work very well. If you were to run the Scallywag with the Wild Oats budget and perhaps some of the same input it could well be a different story. Pulpit is on the money too.

Well after they broke the rig it was replaced with a mast of the same size.

A Turbo VO70, in this case has a 3m taller mast, Longer sprit, Deeper and lighter keel, and powered winches.

Transpac YC put up the ratings for everyone yesterday.  Looking at our class Div 5 I was really surprised by Ruffless's rating.  Getting excited as things are starting to come into focus and the to do list is getting smaller not larger so that is always a good sign.

Yeah and I was impressed with that.  Will be curious to see how it sits on its waterline being that the empty boat wieght is almost 700 pounds more then us.  Other then lithium batteries and enclosed head wall removal we have not done any wieght savings so seems like a lot. I mean the DK46 owes them time now we will owe them about 6 hours.  Will be intersting no matter what just looking forward to getting offshore in some wind and swell as in day 3+ not day 2 haha

I heard that other than Tyler, the crew are all Umpa Lumpas.  Quite the weight saving there. And they're only going with frac kites.

I would be concerned about the Ker 46.  Weapon if they go in the right direction..........

Seriously, that will not work! You can only sail backwards with those.

I know someone who tried it, and they wrapped the spi around the backstay, solidly. They had to cut it away, eventually...

The real thing is from Hardtoobtanium Inc, I want it for my fridge/freezer, and maybe a survival suit for the  TransAntartica.

Not sure of the details but Ruffless is having thier certificate adjusted.  They are having having about 270lbs taken off their wieght which moves them from .9037 to .9137 so a difference of about 40 seconds an hour.  Still an impressive drop and number for a J-125

Reportedly, there will be some good EPAC conditions. ENSO is neutral. MJO is organized with an enhanced phase over the Indian ocean. Sub tropical 500 -hPa pattern supports favourable conditions. There will be some sub tropical cyclonic activity to eff up the wave direction starting on the 16th. The moon will be out at night. It will be light in the day and mostly dark at night.

The 1st wave of boats have sailed straight into hell. They aren't the fastest boats so punching through the windless wall that's in front of them means it won't be long before the boats behind catch them. Stan Honey was on the money when he described the phases of this race.

big eddy in effect. Feel bad for the first wave of boats they are not going to make it far today. The synoptic wind is pulled well offshore it might take them another day to get to it. 
 

should return to normal by the next starts on Thursday

The eddy always seems to rear its ugly head for at least one of the starts. 

Just curious as to why the two E37's are in D8 with the "cruiser racers".  D7 seems like it would be more interesting/challenging for them.  Then div 8 & 7 would have 5 boats each.

Depending on one's definition of normal!

Saturday routing is a couple of hours slower than Friday.  But, that can all wash out down the course. Certainly less threat of Eddy spoiling the party come start day.

Poor teams in Group 8. It took some time but now they're starting to hustle, except for Mikmaks and Nalu, but they'll get going soon enough.

So what's the goss with Rufless?  I would not expect ORR to be making changes without submitted changes by the owners.
