June 14, 7:00pmTeam Wild Wild West is the only boat out. Winds are 15 and steady. Team San Diego had a heck of a run with making up huge amounts of time after having to return to replace a rudder and came in the second group of boats.
Team Chums II had a mishap after the boat coming in behind them crashed into them right on the water line. The boat only got a dimple and all the crew was not injured. Now we are just waiting on the last team to arrive.
June 14, 4:30pm A couple of teams have reported in from the water and most of the ground crew has arrived. Blowing 10-15 here on the beach on Mustang Island with nice formed white caps on the water. The last team to leave the beach Wild Wild West, after repairs this morning, left at noon. We are looking for the first 5 teams to finish before dark.
Reports indicate that the race started off at a slow 5 knots from South Padre and have been building since. The head group of tearms, as of the last report, was R3, Team Chums I, McBok, TPR, Yost and Nautigear. Not in order. All but one team were hugging the coast.
Excellent conditions here and lets hope for a good finish before dark. Photos will follow tonight, late, so check back soon.
June 14, 10:00am There off! 14 boats off with 4 left on the beach. 1 broken rudder cam and 2 with various other problems. As of 10:47 CT, one boat was still on the beach redrilling/mending their rudder cams.
Surf, 2-4ft, winds 8-10. Weather system coming in fast. More soon, gotta hit the road, 109 miles to cover for us ground crew.
See you in Mustang Island.
