    Spindrift 2 is finished, Prince de Bretagne Maxi 80 looks like they have second with Phaedo coming in third and first on handicap. Spindrift 2's race time 2 days 10 hours 57 minutes and 41 seconds.

    Spindrift

    Thanks, Corley! The picture of the (apparently) 15 people aboard Spindrift is amazing. One of the largest crews on a big tri I've seen-almost like the big monos?!

    In the monohulls Commanche and Rambler 88 had a closely fought battle for line honours. Commanche ended up prevailing by 4 minutes. The overall handicap winner will not be known for some time.

    A video has been published by the RORC of an interview with Peter Aschenbrenner of Paradox the 63' cruiser/racer trimaran. They have done well under handicap but once again the result isn't final till the rest of the fleet arrives.
