    Looks like a slow start, maybe Maserati gets the best window at this point.

    Looks like offshore is the ticket this year!

    ORR5 PI Day Evening Update




    Update number 1 from Aloha in the 2019 Cabo Race.

    “Good evening all from day 1 of the 2019 Newport to Cabo Race aboard the Hobie 33 ‘Aloha’. The early morning saw 10 to 15 knots out of the east and what promised to be a peculiar weather day. We had visits from Kyle's parents, team manager Brian, family friend and sailing legend Robbie Haines, as well as our Ullman sailmaker Keith Magnussen. All wished us a safe and quick sail down the coast. Moments like this make these events that much better.

    We had a conservative start with the genoa up for maneuverability. Seconds after the gun went off as we crossed the start line, we hoisted the genoa staysail in tandem with the genoa at which point we intended to put up the Code Zero to replace the genoa. Like all good plans, this one wasn’t without hiccups as Kyle failed to hook the sail onto anything and lost it overboard as soon as he opened the bag. Fortunately, thanks to the quick reactions of the cockpit crew with Elliott on the helm and Brent and Cass on the sheets, we got the boat turned around quickly and recovered the sail from overboard without losing more than a dozen or so boat lengths.

    With a very light forecast for the day, we had anticipated very light breeze in the less than 5 knot range. In a stroke of good luck however, we quickly found ourselves cruising right along ‪at around 6 to 7‬ knots in similar winds on our way down towards Dana Point. Near Dana Point, we were able to roll into the A3 and then into the A2 around the San Onofre power plant.

    So far, everything has been working well with no insufficiencies to report. Skies are blue and winds are around ten knots as we roll into a sunset about 20 Miles off of Torrey Pines. We just recovered our second mylar balloon in our small attempt to clean up our ocean. The night ahead looks to have continuing breeze in the 10 knot range as we continue down the line in the general direction of Isla de Guadalupe some 220 miles to our south. While our current forecasts are looking to be on the lighter end of the spectrum, we are excited to be back offshore sailing towards warmer climates with sandy beaches, cold cervezas and tall margaritas. Happy Pi Day ya'll!” photo credit Ullman Newport Beach

    1st Retirement Recorded as Marisol Leads ORR 5


    Tracker




    Decent returns for the 1st start fleet of ORR 5, all boats having completed at least 120nm overnight aside from Ho'okolohe,
    Cecil and Alyson Rossi's Farr 57 the lone StFYC entry, which retired shortly after yesterday's start. Seth Hall's J-124 Marisol
    is the current line honors and division leader with 155 nm under their keel. Will Durant's beautiful Sparkman & Stephens Yawl
    Chubasco with Jeff Thorpe aboard is just 6 miles off the pace bot taking the outside lane hoping to avoid the light winds predicted
    near the coast the next 2 days. Cynthia Hyde's Beneteau First 44.7 Brown Eyed Girl round out the top 3 9 miles aft of Elvis's wake.

    2 additional divisions get underway this afternoon, with the 4 SC50/52' in ORR4 in one fleet and the 7 boat ORR3 starting the slide south.




    Will Paxton will be aboard John Sangmeister's OEX for this edition of the Cabo Race and was out on water yesterday and took a few snaps of
    Thursday's start...

    Day 2 update from aloha

    DAY 2 UPDATE FROM ALOHA

    “Hello all and happy friday from Team Aloha somewhere off the Baja Peninsula (for reference between San Quintin and Colnett.) After a very eventful night full of gybes, we found ourselves waking up to a beautiful sunrise with more clear skies and very good breeze in the 12 knot range. Though the night saw breeze dropping down to around 6 knots, we were able to maintain a little bit of momentum through the light stuff and hold our own against the larger faster boats.

    Throughout the day today we have seen a bevy of different conditions with the mornings breeze building all the way up to a spritely 17 knots for a short while before slowly easing back down. Still happily under the TRUSTY Ullman A2, we have been tossing up and dousing the spin staysail routinely as wind builds and diminishes. Dying breeze towards the shore has booted us back offshore in the general direction of the very sharky Guadeloupe. We can all be sure there will be no short swim stops any time soon.

    With dolphin escorts becoming almost routine, we were pleasantly surprised to have spotted a sea turtle off of our starboard rail today. This sea life coming as a very welcomed changed from the abundance of trash that we saw floating out on our way to hawaii last summer.

    Today happens to be Cassidy's birthday and we celebrated it with a round of beers and a hearty meal of italian peppered steak, all very tasty and definitely the body and the spirits.

    As the sunsets on our second day out here, we are continuing to hope for the nice north western breeze that is pushing us along right now to keep up under a starry and moonlit night. As we continue to roll south, it is already very evident that the warmer weather is fast approaching with heavy layers already making their way back into permanent storage in favor of lighter long sleeves and floppy hats. Looking forward to see what the powers that be will bring us this weekend in the way of breeze and sunshine as we continue our journey south. Aloha everyone.”

    Saturday 10:00 Update


    pics courtesy nhyc drone

    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

    Early AM Siesta For Saturday Starters While Small Boats Excell


    Onboard BadPak at Saturdays ORR1 Start

    Light air dominated the 1st day for ORR1 and ORR2 in the 2019 Cabo Race, and at the 10:00 update,
    the big, fast boats were in about the same position that the Thursday starters in ORR5 were for the same time period.



    Light conditions for Saturday's racing. Image courtesy NYYC Cabo Race




    The near complete fleet spread out along the Mexican Coast
    Tracker



    ORR1

    The big boats in ORR1 found some decent wind shortly after the start and had made their way to the border by 21:00 but then
    things went south. Literally. By 0500 this AM off the coast of Ensenada, a RIO 100 who had enjoyed a nice pace and building lead found herself dropping to 1 knot
    while the rest of the class caught up and headed west. The tight pack could not sustain momentum and by day break, the light air bubble reached them and
    provided an early morning siesta. Pressure appears to be "just over there" and if they can swim out to it, they can break free before the wind turns southerly,
    they can make up for lost time.


    The recent time for ORR1 looks sad, and if conditions remain the same, RIO 100 would need
    45 days to finish....





    ORR2

    The sleds also all made it to the border by 21:00 last night side by side, then Mr Bill and OEX made a westerly break from the pack
    where things got light and the 3 other boats, Taxi Dancer, Grand Illusion and Pyewacket made decent southerly progress in the 6 to 7 knot range
    until about 04:00 this morning at which time Taxi Dancer headed west and started chasing OEX and Mr Bill. Meanwhile TD and Pye have sailed themselves into the
    same hole that has devoured ORR1




    ORR3

    The OOR3 fleet has made steady progress the past 24 hours with VMG's all in the 6 plus
    range. Timeshaver leads on corrected while Good Call leads in miles sailed with the odometer
    clicking at 426 nm completed, 448 to go.



    ORR4

    The SC 50/52's had a reunighting late last night off Guadalupe Island before Hana Ho made a dash towards shore.
    The fleet has also enjoyed decent VMG's in the 6.3 and 6.6 range. Horizon is current division leader with a 3 hour plus
    corrected time advantage over Lucky Duck at this point with 486nm to go.



    ORR5

    The ORR gang have just passed Punta Eugenia, remain just ahead of ORR 4. Aloha has sprung back a bit from her flyer
    and as predicted used her outside angle to sail into the lead, albeit a narrow one of 42 minutes over Chubasco

    Maserati Withdraws From Cabo Race



    MOD 70 Maserati has withdrawn from 2019 Cabo Race.




    With forecast models looking dismal for the next few days in the SoCal Northern Mexico offshore waters,
    and no real competition, there seems to be no reason for the crew to task the boat and themselves for
    little reason, would be the uneducated guess. Will follow up when official announcement is made!
