What's going on?
No smack tack? No updates?

Speeds are all over the place!
Steve and Jay are going 36.7 knots wow! smile I'm guessing that's wrong.
Dutch Rockerz not working or are they really back at the Islander?

Guess there are now three threads: http://www.catsailor.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=282631#Post282631

Team MYC Youth appears to be floundering near the start.

Buoy 44 passing key sailing...buoy 44 is BHK-20'? What is that exactly? heard there was a Tornado with M20 mast, is that what is registered as the BHK-20?

Steve and Jay appear to have slowed to a more reasonable 17.8 kts. Wonder if they are kite up at the front? If it was really 13 kts and double wire jib reaching at the start, explains the N20 lead over the F18's, but arguably the best F18 team on the course doesn't have a tracker so...

Anyone have finish times? Interviews with the sailors who know better than us armchair sailors what the conditions actually were?

BHK-20 Is a Tornado with a M20 stick. Kirk got a great start Jay and Brian where a bit late and had to make up some ground. Talked to Tom and he said low 20's was pretty much average for them today and where semi foiling most of the day. Brian and Will did really well and are number 1 corrected followed by Steve and Jay.

The drone video looks pretty awesome hopefully that will be posted soon.

Dick hosed his phone and ended up turning it off without knowing so that's why we quit tracking. He got a strong talking to.

No trash talk today, too tired, this crewing thing is bullsh!t! :-)

No one has finished, but it looks like 3 boats on the beach. From looking at the weather radar for the area, they're some ugly storms rolling across the course. I hope they're waiting on a better weather window, and not forced to the beach for repair...

OK, I'm confused. Why do we have a thread on tracking for this awesome event without, I don't know, MAYBE A LINK TO THE ACTUAL TRACKER?????

We all get old Toddy, but I ask you this, who is in the basement with their dick in their hand and who is on the front of an F18 at the FL300? We had a delightful sail today thank you for asking.

As always, Want to compare mileage? How about who ever has the most gets one free drink from the other for every extra mile they have?
I was already tired of the pre race grind and organization before you did your first race.
And speaking of being in my basement (which is where I'd rather be instead of the FRONT of an F18), you need to post some more pics of you in your flowery spandex.I'm running out of viewing material.
p.s. Since you're so tired maybe you should have regaled us with a cool story instead of a "get off my lawn" post.

Thanks Todd for bringing some lively smack talk to this thread!

Jake, Tad, that was 2 years ago. Let it go. I will say I agree with you on the general lack of information available regarding the race, and lack of sailors reports. What I won't agree with is you bashing sailors reports with internet data from the wrong part of the course while sitting in your cozy office chairs sipping latte's and whatever other fruity drinks ya'll are drinking these days.

I talked to one of my buddies competing on a N20 this year (team My Dixie Wrecked), they had blast reaching conditions at the front of the fleet yesterday and were averaging 18-19kts down course. It was a fast day. The day before, they elected to beach and ride out the thunderstorms for 3 hours, then were becalmed for the rest of the day and didn't make it to the beach until 11pm. In retrospect, probably a wise choice given the carnage.

The F18 Infusion Mk. 2, Dutch Team (owner of big global Nacra onboard), apparently broke their rig when when a wave hit them while on the beach. Didn't get the full story there, but my buddy had his N20 flip while on the beach and they are lucky not to have broken the rig or do any damage to the sails. Team Tavernier is out as they don't have a spare F20C rig and I suspect couldn't source one or weren't going to pay what Kirk is asking for one. At least it appears they saved the parts, and carbon can be spliced together to good effect for at least a backup rig for next years race!
