7:15 PM – Report First to Finish – sort of
While Westerly, Lawndart and others are battling their way toward Sansum Narrows, Mephisto, Peter Mills’ C&C 29 snuck into Ganges and the Finish at 7:13.
Meohisto was Sailing in Island Time Class and was allowed to use her engine which explains the fast rounding. But on a day with little wind, it worked out to be a good idea.
Now the wait is on for the boats in Racing Class. Can the leaders make it before dark or midnight? Can the others make it at all?
