Situation on the regatta at 20:00 29.04.2010.

It seems that Ericsson 1 sailing out of Mljet gone into leadership, while Great Viharnik chosen route through the Mljet channel closer to the Peljesac peninsula. Ericsson 1 sails with an average speed of 9.5 knots and has advantage 2 miles ahead of Great Viharnik. Behind them is Damaco and Uncle Branko which are about 10 miles behind the leaders. For other positions look at the link - tracking.

01:09 30:04.2010

 

After Great Viharnik sent the photo, Race committee has contacted the Oceanographic Institute to identify the gender of whale. We find out from biologist on duty, that basis of caudal fin, with anatomical point of view, can safely confirm that it is a female, based on photographs sent to him. Our source is assumed to be a Physeter macrocephalus which rarely goes into our water. It is assumed that frequent tectonic disturbances are cause of this, which disrupted magnetic fields and for this reason whale can not use the inherent GPS.

 

Great Viharnik rushes towards Palagruža with boat speed of 10 knots, from 314 direction. Will the wind of 15 -17 knots be sufficient to escape from whale female we didn't manage to find out from our interviewees

Queen Jelena was retired from Race and sails to island of Mljet. 
The reason for giving up is huge delay, so it is theoretically impossible to finish the Race in a time limit. The crew and boat are excellent and sending greetings to Kero.

14:00 30.04.2010.

It seems that there was a change at the head of Race, because we have just received the latest report from the sea. Therefore, Great Viharnik with skillful maneuvers melted away advantage of E1, and now has an advantage of about 2 miles. GV currently sails in the course to lighthouse Stončica on Vis with the speed of 5.2 knots, while E1 is slightly east to the island island Susac. It is interesting that the whale which is Great Viharnik met tonight by Mljet again seen in their immediate vicinity and taken by mobile phone. Crew of Viharnik is happy and looking forward to having escort, they are considered a female whale brings them good luck.

The wind calmed after Palagruza and Great Viharnik approached at gunpoint from E1. E1 is quickly moved to counter attack and switched to offensive position. After, however, began to form a light east wind, and E1 is again made ​​a slight advantage.

E1 - second place finish time 01:05:01

The drama ended after 38 hours of sailing in Vis harbor. The eleven hours took leadership exchange between the two Maxi. Great Viharnik entered finish first in the final ten meters before E1. In the bay near the finish line E1 seriously twice jeopardized GV and had the bow closer to the finish line. GV with good maneuvers, each time before E1, managed to make a boat goes at this difficult calm. Several times in the mutual parry ships came so close to shore that they even threatened to strand

We apologize for the delay of publication of the positions from 08:00 pm 01.05.2010. The reason is the exclusive footage of female whale. This way we thank COLNAGO Speed boat, which boarded the Web crew immediately upon alert of position and brought them to a Secret place.

With last night dramatic fight for first place, we can expect equally dramatic battle for the penultimate position.

Will the race committee get compliments, such as those addressed by crews of the Great Viharnik and E1, for the organization that contributed to stressful finale last night. Check out after 17:00 when we expect Kucini and Match Point in the Vis bay.
 
17:10 01.05.2010 

Carmen Kucin entering into vicinity of Stončica, Matchpoint is behind of his heel. Total calm falls and in that moment Matchpoint cleverly separates to right side and goes around Stoncica and motionless Carmen Kucin. Both ships are now almost equal, the nervousness and excitement grows... Carmen still catches some wind and begins to sail again, the battle was at its peak. Carmen is holding some sort of distance to the position next to the Czech Republic Vila, when Matchpoint again made ​​a clever and totally cheeky move by grabbing fresh breeze again on the right side, but now into Vis bay. With this move, pass quickly into the lead, and as approaches the finish seems that Carmen Kucin has no more time for correction.
