The 1st wave of boats have sailed straight into hell. They aren't the fastest boats so punching through the windless wall that's in front of them means it won't be long before the boats behind catch them. Stan Honey was on the money when he described the phases of this race.

big eddy in effect. Feel bad for the first wave of boats they are not going to make it far today. The synoptic wind is pulled well offshore it might take them another day to get to it. 
 

should return to normal by the next starts on Thursday

The eddy always seems to rear its ugly head for at least one of the starts. 

Just curious as to why the two E37's are in D8 with the "cruiser racers".  D7 seems like it would be more interesting/challenging for them.  Then div 8 & 7 would have 5 boats each.

Not sure of the details but Ruffless is having thier certificate adjusted.  They are having having about 270lbs taken off their wieght which moves them from .9037 to .9137 so a difference of about 40 seconds an hour.  Still an impressive drop and number for a J-125
Looks like the rating are still moving. Rufless dropped back to .9072 from .9137. What’s going on at orr?

Poor teams in Group 8. It took some time but now they're starting to hustle, except for Mikmaks and Nalu, but they'll get going soon enough.

So what's the goss with Rufless?  I would not expect ORR to be making changes without submitted changes by the owners.
