Law Connect showing up again! just behind Blackjack

Now a few minutes lar ay offshore ahead of Scallywag... tracker fucked
Not quite.  Leaderboard says it is a deduced position based on the last signal they received from the beacon.  I hope this means that they have reason to believe she is still racing and just isn't sending out a signal, and not that there is an issue.

Intriguing to see how Chris Wild's navigation strategy might turn out for Scallywag. Thanks to @forssfor his tracker options once again: the Currents display looks like Wild is setting up for the currents (gyre?) in a few hours

What's with LawConnect? Are they retiring? Tracker shows heading wrong way 0 kt

Or is their transponder off?

Their transponder is acting up plus this tracker is the worst one out of any races. The coverage and tracker have been the same story for the past 8 years, tough to keep thinking it will change.

Dislocated shoulder on a boat can't be much fun. Interesting that there have been a few retirements due to engine issues. 

Retirements: Moneypenny (broken forestay), Blink (torn main), Mako (damaged main), URM (damaged main), Hip-Nautic (damaged main), TSA Management (damaged main), No Limit (crew with dislocated shoulder), Minerva (damaged main), Mille Sabords (damaged main), Nautical Circle (rigging issues), White Noise (window damage), Zen (minor injury), Gweilo (damaged forestay), Eora (broken backstay), Ariel (damaged main), Oskana (broken forestay), Enchantress (broken forestay), Denali (hull damage), OzDesign Patrice Six (engine issues), Philosopher (engine issues), Huntress (TBC), Extasea (engine issues), Alive (hull damage) and Kayimai (electrical issues).

Any word on who had the dislocation?

I'm loving the race between Crux and Azzurro. One boat with all the heavy gear replaced with carbon fiber and the other with all the heavy crew taken off:)
Crux may actually be lighter than Azzurro.  It is the former Blondie and may be the lightest S&S34 ever built (which is sort of a funny phrase when you think about it, as these are not exactly light boats for their size ...).
