I forgot, too, they may have been catching a nap, as they are 3 or 4 hours behind EST...

Two multis have withdrawn: Team Real Thing (L7 tri) and Team Turn Point Designs (custom cat + pedal drive).

buoy's are showing 14knots of wind but the Burds are only making 3.8knots (similar to every one else). The tide must be coming in....and wow...what a head game to be, presumably, double trapped in 14 knots of breeze while making less than 4 knots of SOG....as the sun has probably disappeared over the peak between you and the ocean and night starts to fall.

At least it's relatively warm at ~68 degrees for the time being.

Part of me is extremely jealous...another part of me happy to be sitting behind my computer.

The F25c Team Elsie Piddock has really run away with it, so far. Obviously a breakdown or something could change that, but they have a big led for now. I watched the tracker replay and they took the same route as many other boats, but they just did it better. I wonder what their secret is (they are a local boat with a crew that is extremely experienced)?

Crew list:
Former USCG Officer
2 X Annapolis Newport- Bermuda Race
3 X Singlehanded Transpac
3X Pacific Cup
5X Hawaii to Seattle delivery
6X Van Isle 360

That is quite a crew list! It doesn't take much more speed in that kind of current to make a huge difference and hit a different current window (which Alan and I can attest to in the 2014 Everglades Challenge).

We were about 1 to 1.5 hours behind randy entering the entrance to Chockoloskee - he barely made the current cuttoff and we didn't. We left Chockoloskee about 5.5 hours behind him and he caught a more favorable wind headed south and continued to stretch away. Same thing with the guys behind us...while we sat their stalled trying to get through the current, it allowed them to catch up to us.

And that F25c is probably just the right size... fast, light and small enough to row if need be. I think it's modded quite a bit, too, with lots of extra cloth.

But yes, those dudes could probably make a concrete paver fast...

Any news from freeburd? I don't have the facebook feed and am at work. They look like they're docked.

edit: it looks like everyone else around them is on a beach too...so either still sleeping or waiting for the tide to turn.

Here you go Jake:

Team Freeburd arrived in Campbell River! Resting up and fixing gear before they shoot the narrows! #r2ak #sperry

Dude, you need to check out the smart phones, they are nifty.

Yeah, Yeah...I'm really starting to get grampy about smart phones. I hate mine. It's buggy, crashtastic, and it makes me feel stupid. I don't have time (or patience) to wipe and start over like it needs. Toss in some ~wonderful~ device management software added by my employer and it makes it even less usable.


Thanks for the update.

Looked at it - had some possible boat options...the logistics and time needed away from work made it hard to keep considering. It would be hard to do that without more than two weeks of time. That's a long way from South Cackalackie.

The landscape and conditions just look incredible.

I was an optional crew on Nice Pair. Guess they didn't need me.
