Yeh - "unpleasant"!

 

Well done to Booboo and Josh who will have crossed by now. Saw their nav lights on the way home on the bus from The Pixies gig tonight.

 

I miss Kim but Paz will do me. Should have let her sing Gigantic though as well as into the white!

just noticed an update from Vela Via on facebook that they've suspended racing to "find a bay and find where the water is getting in the boat from".  They go on to say they're expecting to be racing again in a few hours.  Apparently they've been having 50+ knots on the nose, which doesn't sound like fun at all.

looks like Vela Via are underway again.  

 

Guarantee and spearhead both approaching north head at the 18.30 tracker update.  Spearhead ahead but the guarantee has been steadily gaining on them.

Looks like Guarantee took the scenic route alongside Waiheke, allowing Spearhead to get past.

Oracle and Arbitare having a close race out there.

Nowcasting says 8kt at Slipper, and 30 at Mercury.

Vela Via are on the move again. Have left Port Charles, but could be motoring?

Cool Change, Ilex and Rigmarole are on their way. Quite a battle overnight between Arbitare and Oracle.
