From what I can tell from the tracker site, Royal Yellow should be in sight of the finish? Has anyone reported seeing boats, yet?

Yellow finished first, at 2:35:35. Bunch of others finished right after. They have been posting the finishes from the beach as they happen. Go to tybee500.com and click on the "comments" thing to get the blow-by-blow finishes.

Latest in the Saga of my reports:
Van arrived, is now loaded and ready to rumble, but too late to get to the finish line today.
Good Lord willing and the creeks don't rise, I will be at the start line in the morning. crazy

From the sounds of it Rick, you may want to bring an Epurb along with you in the van!...

Happy Trails!

Rick,

Is the broken motorhome the one that you used to follow the W1000 with. I remember the old days of waiting months before getting your report in Multihulls magazine.

I don't remember Rick having a report in Multihulls Magazine. He covered it for our own magazine, Catamaran Sailor, and it was always in the next month's issue -- and took up just about the ENTIRE issue.

No, this is not the same motorhome. That one died long ago. cry

Rick is now on the scene at Jupiter Beach. It is about 15 minutes before the start, and there is a big old thunderstorm sitting just offshore. The sailors are looking at it anxiously. No word of postponement at this point.

Another note is that so far five spinnakers have ripped on the Nacra 20's in the first two days. All the failures have been at the same point on the same seam. All stock Nacra Skip Elliott sails. All have had their sails repaired/resewn, and others with those sails have tried to get theirs resewn/reinforced to prevent failure.

Wind currently is about 10-12 out of the east. Surf is minimal. The one storm is petering out, but there are other storms scattered around out there. The sailors are being warned about possible waterspouts.

Start went well. Two tiers, 12 boats in each tier, with second tier started one minute after first tier.

Rick says they are close-hauled at this point, no spins.

SeaCats had an unknown problem and floundered awhile getting it fixed, but got it handled and on their way pretty quickly.

Rick, who is homeless at this point, is now looking for a picnic table so he can do a story to give you more complete information.

The motorhome had to stay at home in Key Largo, and he is now traveling with the Honda Odyssey, pulling a trailer with two Waves double-stacked, as we are also on our way to Ohio for the summer.

Mary, Thanks for the updates! I don't like them going out in weather that can be dangerous. I guess it is all part of the sport, but it makes me anxious. Glad Rick has triumphed over adversity, and made it to the race!

Sorry, can't help you on specifics. Let's see if any more info appears on that during the day.

I don't like it, either; but the potential of danger is what makes the race attractive to the media. I could almost hear the Extreme Anarchy team salivating at the possible prospect of heavy air and big surf. But Sailing Anarchy is doing a great job of covering the event.
