Vic-Maui 2020 Preparation - Life Rafts

by Technical Committee, September 29th, 2019

First - Get Ready for Your Last Resort. The absolutely last thing any Vic-Maui competitor wants to think about is abandoning the ship half way to Hawaii. Which is precisely why thinking about the life raft should happen early in the process. While “stepping up into the liferaft” off a sinking boat has not happened in a Vic-Maui (touching wood here), it is still something that needs to be thought through. What kind of raft do I need? Where do I store it? How do I deploy it? These are all questions that need to be considered. Read

The Weather Eye, July 15, Final Approaches to the Finish Line

by David Sutcliffe, July 15th, 2018

There is simply no Hawaiian welcome that beats a Lahaina Yacht Club Vic-Maui greeting party, unless it's three LYC greeting parties at the same time! ... In weather news, the more "normal" weather has been very helpful to the Vic-Maui fleet as the boats have had a romping Trade Winds sail towards Maui over the past four-plus days, racking up big 24 hour runs in breezy conditions. This year's approach to the Pailolo Channel has been hotter than usual, with numbers in the TWA 80-110 degree range. The first five boats have all finished without too much drama in the Pailolo Channel itself. Read

They will likely start arriving very early Monday and all be in Lahaina enjoying Mai-Tais by mid-afternoon. Read

New Technology Makes the Race

by Race Committee, July 15th, 2018

While the Lucky Turtle has been the social media darling of this race, there are 2 pieces of technology that have added new dimensions to race followers. The fact that a drone can take and transmit photos 1000 miles from shore is amazing. Similarly amazing are the improvements in satellite tracking which allows the whole race Finish Line process to be automated. Read

by Race Committee, July 15th, 2018
