    Cape2Rio2020 | Day 11 Report
    By Richard Crockett

    Something the landlubbers following this race may not know about ocean racing is that outside assistance is simply not permitted and at its worst can be punishable by disqualification, or with a time penalty at the finish. So the crews out there are self-sufficient – or better yet, have to be self-sufficient in absolutely every respect from victuals to water and even navigation.

    If one receives water from a passing vessel, penalties can apply, and should one receive weather and navigation information from a source that is not available publicly, the consequences can be dire.

    So life on board ...

    With the front-runners now passing due south of St Helena Island in good breeze, it’s been a spectacular first half for these boats, who are now starting the slow turn down around the south Atlantic high and aiming at last for Rio.

    What an inspiration and thrill it must be for the young crews aboard yachts like JM Busha, Rotary Scout, Haspa Hamburg and Zulu Girl to see just how quickly the two big trimarans have covered the first half of the race course! Remember, both these trimaran teams have been ...

    Where to start today? With two distinct groups on the water it’s difficult to give a single overview, so once again I will cover the two groups separately.

    But before that one just has to stand back in awe at the sheer speed and distance covered by the two big dogs, ‘Maserati’ and ‘Love Water’ as they are stripping miles off the chart quicker than a marauding gamefish strips line off a reel!

    ‘Love Water’ has covered 1110nm since the start and ‘Maserati’ 1072nm – all this in less than 48 hours at sea. That’s shunting as the last tracker ‘ping’ showed them doing 19.7 knots and 20.5 knots respectively and still heading towards the 20S line of latitude. To really put this ...
