They're off.

Light winds clocking around from west to the east. Marine forcast at Fernandina has the wind coming from the east at 10mph this afternoon. Slow day fellas.

Although the Final leg looks even worse. 15-20 from the NE.

Also, the wildfire smoke could come into play. The report I saw had visibility down to a mile in some areas!

We're choking on it here in Jax - came in hard this morning. Nice day when I walked the dog at 8 AM, but by 10 I was hacking like Dennis Leary in Rescue Me. Worse than the smell of power boats and jet skis. <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

I'll be on the beach for today's finish to get more first-hand perspective.

I'll repeat the wisdom that was bestowed upon me last year. In light air affairs, you head STRAIGHT to the thunderstorms.

It's where the wind will be.

Right John?

Half a dagger?... hmm, they must be going so fast it just came apart <img src="http://www.catsailor.com/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Saw a board after a high speed impact with a turtle... sheered it off.

When I talked to Derek, who talked to Alan, he said it was hard to understand them, but Alan seem positive that it was Oooh's. I don't know whether they saw them come to the beach or what, but there's half a daggerboard floating around the atlantic somewhere off Flagler.

Alan mentioned that they were doing 15 knots. So the wind has piped up apparently.

Just heard from John Williams at Fernandina.

1/2 mile visibility due to smoke. Winds out the NE at 4-6. He says the first team to find him at the table he's at gets a free round of drinks.

(I think he's lonely)

Don't kid, I think I remember Steve Piche doing small updates to his site from on the water.

Will R:

Last year I mistakenly left myself logged in from the team laptop in Hollywood. The kids thought it would be funny to post a funny "on the water" update with my account.

the end of it was

"Crap Trey fell off, gotta run"

People actually thought it was for real :P

We got problems.

Just talked to Derek. Apparently theres a severe thunderstorm warning over Jacksonville with a cell thats producting 60mph winds and large hail.

Its moving to the NE.

Derek told me he got off the phone with Trey about 10 minutes ago and said that they were making 7-8 knots and about 27 miles from the finish.

See the attached screenshot for the nasty news. Pray that it skirts the fleet.
Quote
... A significant weather alert has been issued for Nassau County for
strong winds... small hail and excessive lightning valid until 645 PM
EDT...

At 559 PM EDT National Weather Service Doppler radar indicated strong
thunderstorms centered along a line extending from 12 miles west of
Ratliff to 10 miles south of Amelia City... moving northeast at 15
mph. These strong thunderstorms will also affect areas around
Ratliff... Callahan... Amelia City... Yulee and Fernandina Beach
through 645 PM EDT. These storms will also impact Interstate 95.
Hail up to one half inch in diameter... excessive cloud-to-ground
lightning and gusty winds of 45 to 55 mph can be expected along with
possible minor damage.

Report damage to the nearest law enforcement agency or your County
emergency management.

according to some hack, back of the napkin type calculations about where I hear the fleet is, and where the storm is travelling, the fleet should get the tail end of the storm. Problem is that if its dumping as much rain on the land as they say it is, its going to kill the convection and sea breezes.

To tell you the truth, I don't know. I quite honestly getting a little tired of the focus on broken Ooohlaalaa parts. I don't mind if they break it and replace it, I just am feeling like people are thinking that I'm a **** that gave Mischa a crummy boat. The first two days I felt like a giant douche when basically the story was "ohh look how much water is in the hulls! And they STILL won!"

I don't want to go over the things I did to prepare the boat, but suffice to say, I never had water intrusion problems, the tiller arm crack was something that I could have never known about or else it would have been replaced, and I don't know what the deal is with the dagger. Neither of them showed ANY sign of cracks of any type when I sent the boat down. I'm not altogether happy with the amount of breakages to be honest, but as long as the boat makes and Mischa doesn't kill me tomorrow when I meet him, I'll be able to live with myself.

I certainly don't think anyone is blaming you (I certainly am not) .. its the Tybee and stuff is gonna break and leak no matter what (you have experienced that first hand obviously). Now if your boat wasn't in 1st then no one would probably even notice.
