They’re Off!

Tim commenting here. The race started at 1pm. You can track Diane & Nick on OGOC through their onboard spot tracker.

Alternatively pop over to the race organizer’s iBoat, where you can track any and all of the fleet. Using the “Pick by division” on the right, I’ve selected the two divisions: “Mini 6.5” and “D.H.” OGOC is the only mini and there are two boats in the double handed division. Razor’s Edge is a Saber 363 and Quicksilver is a C+C 37R. Their water length alone will give them a huge speed advantage, not to mention the creature comforts.

NOAA’s marine forecastt from noon today is calling for: this afternoon: east winds, 5 kt, waves less than 1 foot. Tonight: south winds, 5-10 kt, waves 1 foot. Check the link to keep up to date. Hmmm five knots of breeze.
