Stampede to the Finish, but Looking Over the Shoulder at Darby

by Race Committee, July 20th, 2016

At Roll Call, Valkyrie was only 61 miles form the finish and expected to cross at 5:20 pm local time in Hawaii (8:20 pm PDT), eclipsing the Vic-Maui record by about 14 hours.

Kinetic V and Westerly are not far behind and will finish overnight with Longboard expected sometime on Thursday. The following 24 hours will likely see Atalanta, String Theory and Equus finish, followed the day after by Rain Drop.

The remainder of the fleet has a choice – blast through to the finish with the possibility of meeting up with Tropical Storm Darby. Or slow down and let the storm pass to the south over the weekend. Prepare for the worst, hope for the best.
