This thread is Catsailor's hotline for current news about the Tybee 500. It will fill in the gaps between Rick White's main reports and photos, which you can find each morning and evening on the catsailor.com home page.

Anyone wishing to comment on anything at all about the race, please use this thread instead of opening a new one. It's nice to keep it all in one place.

We're a little late getting started today, but check for a story on the home page later.

Thanks.

Well, things aren't so "hot" at this hotline. The motorhome is broken down in our yard -- won't start and transmission doesn't work. Haven't decided on Plan B yet.

I will keep you posted on these exciting developments.

I had it on a prior thread before you started this one. So I will help consolidate:

Seven. We can add more if other teams get the Spot units.

Craig,
Is there anyway to see the entire fleet, or just one boat at a time?

Hi Rick,

The link above shows the last reported position for each boat. Below are links to the individual tracks for each team with their average speed between the points.

Hope that helps

Shouldn't the lead boats be in sight? Per the tracking, Team Royal Yellow should be off South Beach. Anyone see the boats, yet?

No, they are still a long way from Hollywood and staying close to the shore.

That replay is perfect. That should be on the front page of the site(s).

Any way to overlay local wind conditions (speed/direction) to really get an idea of the tactics?

Great shot of Todd impersonating Carl Edwards over on The Tybee site.

Hi Jay,

Glad you like it. Sounds like a good idea. All he would be able to do is do the prevailing winds for the day. He would have no idea of wind shifts or shore breeze.

Great spin launch off the beach today. The wind is a little lighter than most sailors were hoping, but the local weather is saying it will be building the rest of the week. One of the boats went over a few minutes after the start and was over for a while. We are still unsure who it is but it was a white spin, possibly F18? Time to get to Jupiter....

Still awaiting my van.., then have to load everything we are taking north with us.
And the A/C in the house is also inop.., As the saying goes, "if anything CAN go wrong, IT WILL go wrong."
With my luck this week, If I had been sailing in the race, I would have already been devoured by a shark.
