Just to let folks know there is a new tracker which does not require as much RAM. Well it's actually the old tracker from the 2012 I suspect. Anyway it works fine. Here's the link.

Vendee-Damage!

I hope it wasn't a failure of the top of the mast-all the masts are one design, I think, except, maybe, for any grandfathered in? UPDATE: this one was one of those grandfathered in....

Vendee-

Hugo Boss is still in the lead and going fast.
UPDATE: Alex has fixed the engine.

Alex is 86.9 miles ahead of second place this morning! The others seem to be bunched up. Going to be interesting to see what happens in the doldrums....
