  • Engine Trouble End's ARGO's Transpac, Saturday Starters Get The Light Air Blues

    Sunday July 2nd 0800 overall tracker chart clearly demonstrates the have and have nots

    Greg Dorn's Dehler 46' Favonius currently is 1st in Line Honors

    Another Dehler 46', Ian Edwards Wings is enjoying a pull position in ORR

    Good Energy , George Hershman / Mark Comings RP 63' Leads DIV 1 as her and RIO 100' were able to avoid the parking lot and have separated themselves from the division

    The Saga of Div 2 is a sub par 24 hour VMG

    Near equally as sad, Div 3 have found the offshore parking lot west of Catalina

    The Thursday starters have fared much better breeze wise. William McKinney's Ker 46' Denali 3 has opened up an impressive lead in Div 4

    Dave Moore's Westerly 52 is extending her lead over Triumph in Div 5

    Ho'okole, Cecile and Alyson Rossi's Farr 57 has a narrow lead over Cazan in Div 6

    In Div 7, Wings continues to lead but Lenny , Macondo, Favonious and Nights Watch are in close proximity correct elapsed timewise

    The now 3 boat Div 8 is led by Dean Treadway's Sweet Okole

    Any hopes of a record pace for the Mod 70's has been dashed, but none more so than Jason Carroll's ARGO which has experienced wonky engine issues and is heading back to shore!

    • Square Waves: Not An 1980's New Wave Band
      by Photoboy

      Square waves or cross sea. The Ile de Re is an island in the French Atlantic and hides some of the strangest natural phenomena in the world: Its waves are square. The explanation is quite simple: They are normal waves that form a grid on the surface of the sea, as if it were a chess board. This is what is known in navigation as a crossed sea, a two-way sea or a cross of the sea. It is the state of the sea in which two wave systems travel at oblique angles.
