Not saying they did, just dangerous speculation based on the color. All I know is the mark we look for four times is barely visible. And, last year, they did have some kind of laser beam yours sails went through at the finish.
There is not a lot that the Phaedo team misses. That standard finish light is a bitch to find at night, after 600 miles. (Speaking from IRC 50 speeds, not approaching at 20 knots.) Looks like the team dropped their own right next to it, Hope they were sporting and kept it in for the other MOD.
