Hope they get some wind! That next 80 miles could take a while at 1 or 2 knots.

It was not that bad. You were looking at the average time and they did not reset start time. They all finished between 8:30 and 10:20 Central Time.

1st boat - TCDYC 8.34.28
2nd boat - GT 300. 8.36.55
3rd boat - Mickey Likes It! 8.40.15
4th boat - Cat in the Hat 9.34.20
5th boat - Team DDB 10.18.00

Glad they all finished!

Was surprised they waited so late to start but it looks like they knew what they were doing.

Similar conditions as yesterday. 40 minute start delay. Cat in the Hat out to an early lead followed by GT300. Yesterdays first (TDCY) and third (Mikey Likes it!) boats went ashore shortly after start but are back on the water. The DBB looked like they had surf-related issues too but are moving forward again.

Today is a rougher day for all. Started on time but major surf issues. From GT300:

UPDATE: The race started at 10....but we have been battling the surf and sand. Great Texas got out first and TCDYC is now back underway after having trouble with a crossbar. Mikey Likes It is on the beach with broken battens...working on getting underway. Cat in the Hat also has crossbar issues and DDB is watching and waiting.
