Wild Oats XI has just taken her record 8th line honours a few minutes ago in the Sydney - Hobart yacht race. Has been sailing consistently about half a knot faster than #2 for the last day.
Not bad when the second boat is the race favourite Yankee boat Comanche which is 10 miles off the pace, the fleet has 130 miles plus to go and most of it is still crossing the notorious Bass Strait.
ps: for those that noticed, the post earlier today was an absolute cockup. In holiday mode.
