Don't know how many are following this but some good stories coming out on Facebook.

A lot of the fleet including the Sunfast division pulled into shore to hold up and avoid the coming cyclone.

Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.

Woww, some have diverted a long way to shelter. That's gotta hurt........ mind you so do cyclones.

Oh and KM: they were allowed to suspend racing, divert, seek shelter, then reprovision anything used before returning to the point of suspension and resume racing with no penalty. Ocean Racing Club of Victoria handled it really well.
