    PV2024 Day 5:
    MONDAY MORNING PV RACE UPDATES
    San Diego, CA (February 26, 2024) Most boats on the course are about 24 hours behind last year’s record-setting pace. Compared with their 2022 position at this same elapsed time, Rio 100 and BadPak are roughly 200 miles short. Such Fast, a Thursday starter, is about 140 miles short of last year’s Monday morning location.

    Boats are bunched closer to shore this year, 5-20 miles from Cedros Island, with Brigadoon and City Lights passing by within 4 miles of the island Sunday afternoon.

    At sunset on Sunday evening, the leader of the pack continued to be Blackwing, 35 miles ahead of fellow Thursday starter Such Fast. 12 hours later, Such Fast found themselves caught by the front of the Friday starting pack, while Blackwing doubled their pace overnight and extended their lead to 65 miles.

    The closest competition to watch so far has been the 6-boat Class 4, as Westerly, It’s OK, Groundhog Day, Lucky Duck and Trouble sailed within 1-5 miles of each other over the last 24 hours. And based on corrected time estimates are all very close with the class lead up for grabs.

    At 0930 Race Committee received notice that Santa Cruz 52 City Lights was retiring (all crew safe) and are returning to San Diego.

    Reporting from the course, Zero Gravity on Monday AM says: “Decent sailing through the night, the wind dropped to 3kn this morning, so we get to practice our light air sailing skills again! The steak dinner was delicious, unfortunately we did not bring the wine refrigerator with us.”

    Amazing Grace: “After a slow, light air night, wind filled in this morning and we felt like we were going fast again. Then Rio 100 passed us like we were going backwards. Still having a blast.”

    Check the photo gallery for new pics from the race course. With many boats using Starlink for internet connectivity 24/7, teams are able to share photos and drone video, and possibly more free time due to the light conditions this year.

    • 2024 DH Farallones: Taming The Beast!
      by Photoboy



      The Doublehanded Farallones Race was a true test of mettle this year, dishing out 25-35 knots of southerly storm winds, which gradually turned offshore, meaning that it was sort of a reverse Farallones race – off the wind on the way to the island, and upwind on the way back. Boats that were able to reduce sails and remain in control found that they had a record-fast sail out to the island in rough conditions, but had a slower return back against the wind. The winds eventually

      EMIRATES TEAM NEW ZEALAND FIRST TO SAIL THE NEW AC75
      With the weather clearing in Auckland, Emirates Team New Zealand took advantage of a window to quietly launch the raceboat that will defend the Louis Vuitton 37th America’s Cup in Barcelona in October. The hopes of this sailing-mad nation rest on a progressive and heavily refined design, a (big) step-on from their America’s Cup winning boat ‘Te Rehutai’ of AC36. The

      There are times when universes collide, bringing various masses hurtling together in a semi quantum chaotic stew that can only be attributed to timing, weather and the pull from planetary forces... Saturday's racing in the waters off Treasure Island was one of them.

      The best winds came in late at the 53 Trofeo Princesa Sofia Mallorca by Iberostar today but the wait was worth it, especially for Britain’s ILCA 7 racer Micky Beckett and Italian Nacra 17 Olympic and world champions Ruggero Tita and Caterina Banti who won their events with a day to spare at the Mallorca’s emblematic Olympic classes event which has drawn a record entry for an Olympic year.

      With gusts to over 30kts at times and a big, untidy swell which has been built up by nearly two weeks of strong winds in the Balearica Islands, of the ten Olympic scheduled events only the Formula Kite Men and Women, the ILCA 6 and ILCA 7 singlehanders and the redoubtable 470 Mixed were actually able to race and open their accounts on schedule at the 53 Trofeo Princesa Sofia Mallorca by Iberostar.
