There is a MONSTER rain storm blowing in over the mountains, and the sun's gone all ringed. Wind is now 15-18 at the top mark, 10-12 at the bottom.

Here's the earlier top mark - the first one of race 11:

While we wait for the finish videos to load, here's the first part of a three-part interview from this morning with the owner of Joe Fly, Giovanni Maspero.

Uka Uka is looking pretty unassailable at this point, and we're waiting to see where Blu Moon finished to see what 2nd through 5th will bring. If anyone wants to do any scoring analysis to figure out just where Uka needs to finish to win, it'd be very much appreciated.

Greetings from Charles Towne, SC! Team Blur is super bummed that we are not there. I noticed in one of Mer's pictures that somone had what looks like a 3DL jib. It even looked like it was stenciled with 3DL above the draft stripe. A report on sails would be an interesting followup. I always hear that the Euros use different kite shapes, although the US sailmakers deny!

See ya when you get back!
