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

Similarly amazing are the improvements in satellite tracking which allows the whole race Finish Line process to be automated. Read

Day 14 - Two Boats Drinking Mai Tais - Overall Winner Still for Grabs

by Race Committee, July 14th, 2018

With both Firefly and Joy Ride finishing today, the prizes for Line Honours and Division 1 are sorted out. But the Overall Winner is still up for grabs. Turnagain, Salient and Kraken are sailing very hard to an expected finish around 6 am on Sunday morning - and not much is separating them. If they keep their speed up, they can finish ahead of Joy Ride on corrected time; so it is going to be an interesting 18 hours. Read
