    11 Additional boats joined the reverse migration as the Caravan to Cabo more than tripled in size in Friday.

    The 4 Santa Cruz 50 somethings and 7 ORR3 Handicappers took a slightly more inside the rumbline than their ORR5 counterparts
    to San Diego before moving offshore with Viggo Torbensen's J-125 Timeshaver sliding offshore and to an early lead in the early evening
    before relenting to the waterline of Tom Barker's Swan 60'FD Good Call which was making near 10 knots round midnight before things got a tad lighter.

    The overall feet and standings

    Thursday's ORR5 starters currently show Cynthia Hyde's Beneteau First 44.7 Brown Eyed Girl with a narrow corrected lead over Will Durant's
    Sparkman & Stephens Yawl Chubasco, yet Seth Hall's J-124 Marisol with 529 nm to the cold cervezas is, for now still the line honors leaders.
    The 3 boats mentioned seem content on matching gybe for gybe as they work their way south. But don't stamp any names in any pickle dishes just yet,
    Kyle Vanderspek's Hobie 33' Aloha has found better pressure on the outside, and while sailing a greater distance, are in position to leverage their flyer
    into redeemable tokens on the podium.

    The 4 boats in ORR 4 have broken into two sets at this point with Dave MacEwen's SC52 Lucky Duck and Steven Davis's SC 52 Vela on the western edge
    with John Shulte's SC 50 Horizon currently division leader with 641 nm to go being covered by Mark Dowdy's SC 50 Hana Ho just 6 miles aft.

    In ORR 3, John Raymont's Andrews 40' Fast Exit currently holds the corrected lead in class and seems to
    be matching hull speed with Viggo Torbensen's J-125 Timeshaver at 7.1 knots vmg. With 208nm under her keel thus far,
    Tom Barker's Swan 60FD Good Call is leader of miles sailed but 3rd in division corrected.

    11 additional boats are readying for their starts in ORR2 and ORR1 this afternoon, 5 Sleds in ORR 2
    and and intriguing matchup with Manouch Moshayedi's RIO 100' head to head with Tom Holthus's PAC 52 Badpack

    Stay tuned
