Teasing Machine, who looked to be in the box seat to claim the Rolex Sydney Hobart on IRC, and Celestial were both defeated by the Derwent this morning as they drifted to the finish well over five hours beyond what was first estimated.
Quickpoint Azzuro meanwhile around the Cape has blistering pace, basically at or above hull speed of 9 knots and has moved to number one on the IRC leader board over “club house” leaders Balance. Will they be able to maintain their pace? Who knows, but what I do know is that we will know who the winner IRC is come 0400 tomorrow morning!
For now, we have covered well over the top ten on line honours, and will continue to cover the overall IRC. A big thanks to our “friends”, Zhik for bringing you our broadcasts, SailingLog by BoatBook and Optical Solutions Australia for all of the assistance with our Rolex Sydney Hobart broadcast and beyond, and to GAC Pindar for support over the past year.
If you would like to see more, we are looking for “Friends” to join the adventure, and we will open up a crowd-funding site as well 🙂
Thanks to all for the support, and the amazing comments – and most importantly for sharing the adventures…
