Week 3 of Leg 6
A brief update
Apathetic Thistle makes it into port on the second tack of the week. Congratulations to skipper Flyman and his crew
Lukes Giants takes 2nd on tack 5 and 4 more boats also make it La Rochelle with a week to spare.
Special Riders (tack 6)
Honeyballs (tack 5)
Isaiah Forty:31 (tack 4 and tack 7 - and returned to waypoint 2)
Robots in Disguise (tack 7 and tack 10 - and returned to waypoint 2 - Unlucky there as the 2nd RA was the Scilly Isles which are tricky to hit)
Doomsday and Diminutive Midgets get home on tack 7 … but it’s Doomsday who takes the 15 points by virtue of using less of the tack to cross the line. Well done to skipper Razorback
3 more boats make it to port before the week is done and of those a special mention goes to Naked Pirates who finally seem to be getting their sailing together after only accumulating 6 points up to this point.
