7/12 1233: Highlander finished.

7/12 1248: Adventure_us finished.

7/12 1129: Bella finished.

7/12 0940: Rick Rohrer on Rocinate said he was near the windmills off of Block Island.  Was a slog to the mark OADS but a sleigh ride since.  Expects to finish between 1400 and 1500.

7/12 0912: Jack Clayton on Melantho finished.  Memorable race he says!

7/12 0845: David Southwell on Alchemy called in that he had rounded the first mark at 2210 last night and promptly hopelessly wrapped his spinnaker around the forestay.  Took 3 hrs to untangle.  Withdrew after it.

7/12 0814: La Defonce finished!

7/12 0700 – Hailed the boats and Laurent on La Defonce replied that he is about 5 nm from the finish and that Cepheus was in front of him.  Didn’t see any other boats.

7/12 0510 – Mike Millard on Wildeyes called to say he withdrew about 11 miles from the mark last night.  Things started to break and he didn’t want to push him and the boat.

07/11 2241 – Phil Haydon on Cepheus texted me that he had to withdraw a couple miles from the mark (OADS) due to  a lost shroud attachment.

7/11 1800 – Wicked foggy in Newport Harbor.  Hopefully they are not in this yet however they must end up in it on the way back.

7/11 1627 – Rocinante said he was at the south east corner of Block Island.

7/11 1700 – Paul Kanev called in that he had returned to Newport and retired due to sickness.

7/11 1105 – And they are off after delaying the start from yesterday due to the Tropical Storm Fay west of us.  Beautiful weather.  They should have a slog out there in a Southerly shifting to the SW but a sleigh ride back.  11 Boats started doing the short course.
