Just a note that the boats' tracker pings are not synchronized, so the tracker page is not a real-time view of the race status, but a general idea of how things are evolving.

Just got word from Dura Mater that they have retired and are back in under the Gate. Wind was 15-20 and lumpy seas. They decided against sailing into the building conditions.

Confirmation from Mulan that they retired due to battery not charging. Bummer as they were doing well. Remaining 11 boats moving along well.
