3Sum broke a rudder and is in Port Sanilac. They think Earth Voyager had mast problems. No word on Arete yet but I believe they are back in Port Huron now.Arete and Earth Voyager dropped out of BYC Mac today. Not sure why as conditions weren't too bad. Farrier 82A maybe next, odd course and speed on tracker
Match crew member names on the multis vs the CYC Mac Committee, even you could figure this out. It's a bad year, it happens.The bigger question is why the high dropout rate? One capsize and 6 withdrawals out of 10 boats begs a few questions. The issue of multihulls doing the race might be an issue in the future.
