Day 3 - 10am update
Our boyz appear to be stalled, or still bivouacked. It may be the weather. From my phone I can't tell. There were some issues with the spot tracking this morn.
Dog did check in and is hunkered down at the isolated check point 3. Resting up? Fixing stuff? Got duct tape, Paul?
The Hobies who were in the rear are now on the move, slowly creeping in protected water.
Near the end of the course, several boats (mostly monos I think) are about to cross the finish line. Stay tuned.
Jollyroger, our part Hobie TI/ part canoe, is closing in on the finish too. His story is going to be enlightening.
The middle pack of EC racers such as the paddlers are rolling along in tight formations. Day 3 must be a slog for these guyz!
Bad news is in- prepare yourselves,.. Capt Chaos is disabled, has hit his help button and dropped out. He never got out of that marina. Lets hope its "just" equipment problems, and something we can all learn from.
Take a bow, Jim. We love you, you maniac!
Hope you'll update us soon.
It's a good reminder this is a survival challenge, not a race. It seems half the entrants never complete it. The hopes and reputation of the Hobie "Adventures" rests with the others. Good luck!
