2017 Pineapple Cup – Day 2 Recap

Wizard and Prospector Expected to Arrive in MoBay Monday AM

Plus PHRF Fleet in a Tight Battle!

Prospector and Wizard, leading the IRC fleet, rounded the waypoints off Cuba’s east coast this morning and are currently south of Guantanamo in an ENE breeze of about 14 knots. Prospector continues to lead on corrected time while Wizard is in contention for line honors. The PredictWind forecasts show this breeze staying in the 8-20 knot range from this same direction for their duration of the race. Expected arrival time into Montego Bay for Prospector and Wizard is tomorrow morning. Follow on Facebook and Twitter for live updates!

The tight PHRF fleet is making their way through the Bahamas and are certainly keeping things exciting! Renegade, Amhas and White Rhino are leading the fleet, all within a 5nm range of each other, but it’s Hermie Louise who is coming out on top when corrected time is taken into account! This is anyone’s race! The fleet is forecasted to get into stronger breeze as they near Cuba so it’s a race to see who gets there first and can make some gains on the rest of the fleet. Stay tuned to see who can come out on top!
