I am following it, enjoying some spectacular photos and watching the different routing strategies.
Today Scallywag recovered a MOB in 7 minutes while sailing at double figures. How good is that? Well done guys

Scallywag should not have lost the crew overboard, but yes the recovery was good and somewhat lucky too.

Going to the foredeck without being hooked in, or even wearing a PFD - no beacon, nothing. 

 

You could see the skipper (Witt?) was seething.

Maybe one crew swaps out in Honkers then. He admitted he didn't even communicate what he was doing so I imagine he's received a right bollocking from the rest

Erm no....To the end of an outrigger. Pretty f$%king stupid !!!! 

Wearing black too. 

 

I can't see any cleverness in this at all.

I would toss him from the boat at the first opportunity. 

 

You get your own self in a fix and die, but it's your mates that have to live with it. 

 

Utterly irresponsible !!

Scallywag getting nervous I reckon.

I have their lead down to around 24nm with Vestas and DF in the groove and consistently sailing a few clicks deeper.

200nm to the top of the Philippines and they will hit the lighter patch first with the decision to gybe or not.

The Scallywag has been in stealth mode for a while. Will be interesting to see where they have repositioned themselves to.

still in front and slightly to leeward of Vestas I believe. Vestas basically following same track but still closing I suspect.

Akzo to windward of the Vestas track DF rotating forward around them in better breeze.
