It's tough tapping out texts to all my female fans, updating this thread, and keeping the camera trained on something other than my sunburned feet.

Epic day of racing here in Texas! Tomko and Billings claim the first spot...but not without a fight from Casey and Tebow, who finished just 1:30 behind! An incredible finish after almost 100 miles open ocean racing!

Tomko and Billings didn't finish without damage, they broke a rudder on the way in to Mustang Island.

Casey and Tebow smolder onto the beach!

There was some drama on the beach!
Team Chums came in hot, spun up and almost lost it. If it weren't for the quick thinking of their beach crew, they might have gone over.

...that's not all.

Steve Piche fell off of his boat just inside of the surf line, and his crew had to manage a powered-up spin on his own with marginal success!

Oh! is that wolf-toes' old main?

PS...how did that ground crew dude NOT break that spinnaker pole? Never grab the pole and defend it from anyone else who might think of grabbing the pole! Our ground crew got that speech before each of our early Tybee runs.

yeah, but even then, the 20 spin pole is so pre-bent it's close to breaking anyway. I've broken one by stuffing into a wave before.

what is your username or eventname on Justin.TV? I can't find the broadcast on the iPhone app (it's search feature sucks).

Obviously, this is code for something else. What does anyone think he's actually doing?

Looks like they might be getting that left shift today.

We're on our way to Maragorda overland, and will hopefully be broadcasting in about an hour. The sailors are making good time, and it's a challenge getting to the finish line before them. We'll let you know when we go live.

Thank you so much for the feedback! Since we're using a ton of bandwidth for broadcast, we'll keep the online chatting to a minimum. If you want to text us questions, send 'em! 831-475-7245
