Race to Alaska

It’s Day 18 of the race, and some of the smaller boats have crossed the line. In about an hour or so the boat with the chair-bound guys will cross, with my friend Mark on board lending help. They’re disqualified from the race for losing a crew member, but they appealed for help to reach their goal anyway, and it looks good for them.

They’re a crowd favorite, even with their misfortunes, so the Race Committee is tracking them as if they’re still in the competition. Assuming they’ll complete the 750 miles, no doubt they’ll be back to prove the point, this time paying close attention to the crew makeup and the boat itself.

Rowers have done well because they could keep going while the sailboats were stymied by the lack of wind. The all-women boats looked great, and they had a lot more fun than the men. It looks like about 30 boats will finish, of 68 that started.
