    Arrived back at the dock in Alameda at 3am. Now rested, pretty bummed, Althea was humming along, closed hauled in 17kts when I heard a loud pop. "Muddy" water started spitting from my aft starboard chain plate and I went above only to see it had been pulled up a couple inches. With two shrouds left holding the mast up on the starboard side, I tacked onto port. Weighed the decision to continue the last 75nm to 126 40 for all of 5 minutes. Did not want to chance disaster.

    Had an amazing sail back to the bay on a port tack - beautiful weather and kind winds - what a great course. Was happy to hear Brian raise me on VHF, 8 miles west of North Farallones. Thanks for checking in.

    Yikes!

    Yes a bummer but you made the right call. No fun being dismasted 200 nm out.

    At around 1500, GREEN BUFFALO is abeam SE Farallon Island, and 6BROS is about 5 nm W. of Point Bonita.


    6B owes GB 57 sec per mile, or 6 hrs 20 minutes for TOD @ 400nm.

    The Buffalo looks good to win on corrected!

    Hi Brett,
    Bummer about your chainplate but I guess it's better this year than last year about this time. Hope you get things back together soon.

    From the RC:

    6 Brothers finish
    16:46:18
    for a blistering 7.3 kt VMG average over 400 nm.

    Can GREEN BUFFALO make it in on time to beat the Bros on corrected time as the wind dies this evening??? The tide will soon swing to his favor, wind or no wind.

    The time to beat is 2306 hrs PDT -- unofficial calculation.
