    Tuesday Update: Good Call Assumes Lead, BadPak & OEX Retire



    Overnight, Tom Barkers Swan 60 FD Good Call passed the 3 front runners from ORR 5 with authority
    and is now 9 miles in front with just 91 NM to the finish. The ORR5 Triple threat of Chubasco, Brown Eyed Girl
    and Marisol are currently all locked up with 100 nm to go and each doing 60 knots. Bob Pethick's Rogers 46' Bretwalda3
    is charging hard and taken over 5th for line honors...






    In the big picture, as of 0800 PDST, the fleet clearly has it's has and has nots, with Thursday and Friday starters
    all in good position for fiesta in Cabo this weekend while Saturday's fleets are struggling mightily.




    ORR1 has already seen RIO 100 toss in the towel, and after another slow night, Tom Holthus's PAC52 BadPak decided to end the bleeding
    and making way to port it appear in Tortuga Bay. Tom is enjoying using his ride for what it was intended, offshore and buoy racing, and will
    be competing in the Transpac in a couple months, with hopes to eclipse BadPak's 2017 run and take all the marble. With recent upheaval
    in the PAC52 Class, Tom's attitude remains consistent "I sail to have fun, and if we don't win it's not the end of the world" He said in recent interview.

    In the rest of the OOR1 Lorenzo Berho's Kernan 70' Peligroso has taken a commanding 65 nm lead over division 2nd place boat, Jim Bailey's TP52 Destroyer






    ORR2 has seen it 1st retirement, John Sangmeister's SC 70 OEX and is now a foursome. Roy Disney's Andrews 70 Pyewacket leads a very spread out fleet
    where no one really seems to have a grip on what the weather gods have in store for them next. David Clark's SC 70 Grand Illusion and Jim Yabsley's RP 70
    Taxi Dancer round out the top 3






    ORR3 has to be full of stoked sailors, as they seemed to have had the weather gods shining down upon them the majority of the race. The division leader, Viggo Torbensen's J-125
    Timeshaver has a 15 minute corrected advantage over John Raymont's Andrew 40 Fast Exit with Ivan Batanov's Soto 40 Zero Gravity in 3rd a few hours back, and the division's
    4th place boat is actually the Line Honors leader in the form of Tom Barker's Swan 60FD Good Call!




    With two 50' vs 52' duels working their way towards the final the stretch, all boats ORR4 have at least, something to fight for and can't imagine
    any one of them giving an inch until the horn blow and the Tecate flows. John Shulze's SC50 Horizon currently clutching a slightly lees than 2 hour
    corrected lead over Dave MacEwan's SC52 Horizon Both doing 7.1 knots with exactly 138 nm to finish....





    The 3 Boat Drag race between Will Durant's Sparkman & Stephens Chubasco, Cynthia Hyde's Beneteau First 44.7 Brown Eyed Girl and
    Seth Hall's J-124 Marisol has been one for the ages... All with 94 nm to paydirt and doing 6.0 knots!

    Yikes!

    They best be careful, Bretwalda looks to sweep in from the outside.

    The beach gets light at night, move out and reach in!

    With 27 nm to the finish, It would appear that it is Tom Barker's Swan 60FD Good Call's Line Honors to lose,
    but barring some unforeseen catastrophe, drinks are on Tom in just a few hours!

    The 3 boats from ORR5 that have been connected at the hip for the past couple days are all 38 nm out and could probably
    pass hors d'oeuvres to each other, will most likely finish within minutes of each other, the tightest ocean racing in recent memory.

    Chubasco does appear to own the corrected title for class, and somehow, Aloha, Kyle Vanderspek's Hobbie 33 has inserted herself back into
    the conversation, despite being 60 miles in arrears of the pack...
