12 hours in with under 100 NM DTF.  Currently doing 20 kts boat speed not too far from the north, mid-Lake buoy which is currently reporting SW winds @ 22-27 kts. & 6.6 foot waves.

Sending it!

Good on them for sending it while it's blowing. But, yeah, Pyewacket set the current record during a race and didn't get to pick their weather window.

Meh. Are they just sailing there or are they following course established by the Chi-Mac race? I assume the draft on Il Mostro means they have to sail through the channel at Grey's Reef anyway. 

What next? Sydney Hobart in June?

Ummm, because it super goddamn fun.  That seems offensive to you somehow.  Remember this sailing thing is supposed to be fun.

Says someone who definitely never set a record.  Plenty of poor bastards on that big girl too, and plenty of anarchists. We'll have some details tonight.

Reference: 

The race course runs 333 mi (536 km). Steve Fossett set the overall race record, 18 hours, 50 minutes, in 1998 with the multihull yacht, Stars and Stripes. Roy E. Disney set the monohull record, 23 hours, 30 minutes, in Pyewacket in 2002. 

i'm pretty sure those are the outrights for another few minutes, though I wonder if Il Mostro's supermac time from Chi-Mac would beat Pye's.

I think they've got it.  They left at 17:39:57 (I'm assuming Chicago time) which means they need to cross the line by 13:29:57 CT/14:29:57 ET.  And they're just a few minutes out.  Crushing an amazing 60 foot open AC catamaran's record in a decade old V70 full of Midwestern crew.  I'm digging it.

someone needs to ask Slattery how many out right records he has broken! The dude is a pure speed.
