    Here is the new place they moved all the radiofax charts, by the way: http://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/fax/ptreyes.shtml

    Over the next 4 days winds are in a typical Summer pattern, NW in the 20s out on the course.

    So I am a bit dismayed to see the tracked fleet all diving South! Maybe they just want to give the Farallones a big duck.

    Yep, Pythagoras is still right.

    They are tracking more Westward now, and maybe the wind won't allow it, but I would strongly advise the racers to put as much upwind into the bank as early as possible. Beam reaching in general sux, and you want to make the last quarter or third of the race as easy as possible as you will be tired and approaching the lee shore and dense traffic areas.

    Six Brothers is past SE Farallon and sailing due west. Kynntana is sailing WSW and had not yet passed the island at her last ping.

    The others look like they're headed to Tahiti. Tahiti is nice and all, but...

    That must be fun on a Columbia 32 -- I notice that 6Bros is the ONLY DH entry this year. Did last year's sucky weather scare them all off?

    Green Buffalo has AIS xmit I know, Jim must be in stealth mode for now... maybe he will start transmitting after dark.

    Vessel Finder https://www.vesselfinder.com/ seems to have more our our targets at the moment. I'm not sure how long they will be visible.

    Jacqueline has turned around, AIS showing 10 mm SW of GG.

    Everybody else got off okay, though? First night out on the ocean for some. Always impressive. Thanks for keeping us in the loop, David and Rick. Do you have someone's boat there at the dock?

    If Jim turns things on, I'll bet his track sows NW and then W near Pt. Reyes.

    My thought exactly.
