 Vic-Maui News:

Being Squeezed at the Committee Boat

Unleash the Hounds

by Race Committee, July 12th, 2016

The 4th day of Vic Maui saw several stories unfold. At the start line, the large fast greyhounds were unleashed to catch the fleet. Lighter conditions around Cape Flattery saw the new-school Longboard leg out on old-school Atalanta, The second start boats edged back away from the Rhumb-line as the wind forecast started looking sketchy, and the first start boats keep running south along the Oregon coast.

The Hardworking Race Committee

Talking to the Fleet

by Race Committee, July 12th, 2016

A number of Twitter followers have pointed out that the YB Tracker onboard Mountain has stopped working. In fact it has not – there is something blocking the GPS signal. The Race Committee has given instructions to Mountain to correct it. But Reed Bernard and Brian Vanderzanden are sailing 2-handed and answering email is not top of their priority list. But they will get the message later today at a minimum. Which all begs the Question – How do we stay in Contact with the fleet? Read

The Wind Whisperer

The Guru Speaks

by Brad Baker, July 11th, 2016

I’m gonna lay it all on the line, I think this will be the year! The record will fall. OK, I know, now I’ve jinxed it right? Knocking on wood right now so as to undo the jinx. I’ll back up a bit.

String Theory and Starblazer fight at the Start

Not in the Brochure

by Race Committee, July 11th, 2016

At Roll Call today, the first sixteen boats are all off the coast of Washington and Oregon, or directly on the Rhumb line to Maui (Rhumb line = direct route on a map. All are facing challenging conditions in the form of headwinds with variable speeds and bad tacking angles. Funny how the race promotion brochure talks only about perfect reaching conditions all the way to the tropics. Read

Can We Get To The Line?

Nine More Are On Their Way

by Race Committee, July 10th, 2016

The clouds parted, the sun came out and Division 2 of 2016 Vic-Maui got underway. While there was a tantalizing breeze about 100 metres away from the Start Line, the curmudgeons on the Race Committee left the fleet to eke their way towards it after the starting horn. A "guns blazing" start it was not. Read
