using the handbrake is difficult around there due to the cable protection zone as well,

pretty bloddy well based on the last hour's changes!

 

At my previous post Blick were 10nm back - now 3.5nm and coming in at 8kts.  RTII on the move again but only at 5kts.  The next few hours are gonna be great - where are the TNZ helicopters!

it just get more and more interesting. RTII and Scarlett are blasting into the harbour at 9kts while Blink just stopped dead.  At one point Scarlett was only 1/3 mile back - now opened out to about a mile.

 

SHould be across the line by the next update.

Have to feel for Blink right now it's fairly hard to watch on the tracker, let alone being out there drifting around. They got sooo close to Scarlet, only to get left behind, which must hurt on an epic boat like Blink.

Ilex's tracker has them inside New Plymouth harbour (but still doing 5.8 knts at 148). Is that a tracker error, or have they got an issue? there track is going straight for the harbour, where everyone nearby go near there but then beat down coast.

Any guesses as to what else happened overnight? Did Celadon anchor (in the cable protection zone maybe)? How did Laissez Faire get passed everyone? Motor? Looks like Ilex has rejoined? Did they just stop overnight for a good rest, sail in and out of the port? What time will the tide hit the flush button or will there be enough wind today? The wind has swung back to the north which should help. Did the whole of Wellington city get woken up at 6am by the party on the Sunfast? They did very well, must be stoked.
