I think I’m right in saying that the boat above right (Southern Skimmer) was the first across the line after 300 miles in two days, eight hours and 56 inutes. That’s impressive stuff! And I’m impressed also with Lugnut and Root’s progress in their Jim Michalak-designed boat.

Sadly, the weather has proved too much for quite a few boats, and one or two have suffered damage. Be careful out there everyone…

  1. Gavin's correct, the photo at the far right was the first in. They were blazing fast in some pretty rough water.

  2. Noel –

    Nice to hear from you, and congratulations to you and Gary, and Jim of course, for doing so well.

    Do you know where readers can find some photos of the race finishers arriving at the destination please?
