    2017 Cabo Race, RIO 100 Retires



    TRACKER

    Saturdays start to the annual Newport Harbor to Cabo race began with an ominous forecast from the weather wonks.

    As Len Bose indicated in his pre race post:

    3-11-17 Newport Beach, CA. Today is the start of the NHYC To Cabo race and the weather forecast is dismal at best. At this point hoping to finish by Thursday. We have an outstanding crew this year and I was hoping to be put to the test, the heavy air test, not the light air test.



    As Saturday's 09:30 tracker attests, the going is painfully slow. RIO 100 had only made 92 miles out of the 792 mile course and was only doing 0.9 knots, and has officially retired. Several other boat are making a slow movement towards San Diego and may soon follow suit.

    The retirees continue. Earlier Condor pulled the plug, now previous fleet leader Pyewacket has turned back north as well
    as Lucky Duck.

    Onde Amo has retired and headed to San Diego.

    Rufless looks to be staying very close to coast, maybe optioning for and exit at Resarito or Ensenda.

    The lead boats look to get in some better breeze over the next couple days.
    May see finishers actually get to Cabo by late Thursday?
