Might as well go all in, and just finish at Plymouth.  Claim the win for the "real" Fastnet

Just as the official tracker seemed to improve we now have conflict (on pc) between the line hons leaderboard, the Imoca leaderboard and the actual displayed positions! Hopeless! At least LiveShips is working OK. I am loooking at Arkea, Initiatives, Sailing Poland, etc.

Skorpios finished!  A great kickoff for this program. 
Pretty impressive to be launched, prepared, and win it especially in these challenging conditions. Hats off to the team behind all this. Yes, it takes lots of money, but you still need the best people performing at the absolute top of their game to achieve the goal.

It’s 42% larger than the nearest competitor in an upwind & reaching race where waterline dominates.  As long as they didn’t break anything — and sail the course — they should place well or 1st.

This, and being humiliated by a boat half it’s size with just two crew (on the top of their game and c/w AP).

Certainly hats off to the team behind it, incl. Juan K, and the crew sailing it, who are mostly over the top of their game, btw...

But experience count more on these monsters.

Most important, the owner will be happy, and ready to continue his much appreciated charity. And who knows, others might join in, 2 or 3 would be more fun.

Should be an interesting finish between Apivia and Rambler, Apivia gone south of the TSS shorter distance more tide in their favour for the moment but possibly less wind.  Rambler north of the TSS longer distance a little less tide, but more wind?
