Kicks off in 1 hour.

Live tracking here

Sail number identifier here

Not sure what effort would be required, but it would be great if they could replace the sail numbers on the tracker with last names.

I think I got a note a couple of weeks ago - I seem to remember now it is either Gonzales Cruz Smith or his brother... can't remember the details.

Ah.

1st race: ARG, Easton/Burd, JC/Dalton, Tomko/Billings... I think.

Looked like JC did a turn shortly after the start, and Pitt did one just after the first offset mark...

Kattack is cool. Looks like a big right shift on the last leg to finish.

Is there live commentary anywhere? Mark roundings, conditions, etc?

Very cool to watch live!

I kept seeing signals lost...wonder if some of that was capsizing. The wind data looks sporty.

Agree that sometimes the signal gets spotty, but in the two cases I cited, there seemed to be good signal and a constant track throughout a 360 turn... Nigel had come in overstood on port, so likely a close encounter in the zone. Of course, not being there, that's just a guess. ;-)

Don't know about that. Merrick was invisible until he showed up right at the finish (near the front of the fleet, so I doubt he capsized).

Boats too fast for the system? wink

Interesting that they took the start mark behind the signal boat during the race.

Results are starting to show up now (they have 35 entered so far). Assuming we just watched the finish of Race 1, Robbe Daniel was also invisible (he won, and I never saw a boat ahead of the ARG boat).

Another time-waster. AC last week, F18s this week. I'm not getting anything done.

I ran out of vacation time, or I'd be "wasting" it there too...

JC got the pin and just bolted. Bauldry and Merrick were right there, too.

Todd beat Ding (by one boat). This seems to be a pattern?

I don't know that I'd call the wind "sporty" yet. Seems to be averaging in the high teens, but that's in MPH. Gusts don't seem to be over 20 knots.

Of course, I sail a Hobie Wave... wink

Has anyone seen a list of hull numbers with the names? The entry list I found doesn't correspond.Looking through the sail numbers is slow.

course looks pretty square. Maybe a slight left favor.
