Our first arriver has posted her 100 mile report. As anticipated, it's A Fond le Girafon, the foil-equipped Beneteau Figaro 3. We've added our race notice block to the front page so you can track arrivals. Note that it's about an hour from the finish time to a boat's arrival at the docks in Kaneohe for the traditional maitais, leis, and pineapple greeting.
Our question: What does a giraffe eat?
Like baseball, sailiing competition involves a lot of numbers. One classic value tracked by racers and cruisers alike is the "day's run." This is the distance travelled from noon to noon or check-in to check-in. We look at the 0800 check-in positions. As of today, the top of the chart is -- no surprise -- Prospector with a respectable 337 miles on July 17. They'll no doubt point out that they could have done better if it were windier.
Quite a few good numbers below. We'll re-post after finishes...
