Michael “Cocko” Coxon is kryptonite to Wild Oats XI’s nearly unblemished record of line honors wins in the Hobart; the two times she was beaten, Cocko was behind the program that did the beating; first with Crichton’s Alfa Romeo, and then with the previous Loyal in 2011 (Ragamuffin 100 now).  A health issue kept Cocko off the Perpetual Loyal in this year’s race, and while we’ll never know if that’s part of the reason WOXI is 35 miles ahead of the big JuanK beast, we did get a chance to chat with Sydney’s best-known sailmaker this morning for 16 minutes about the race, the sail selections, and the general competition in this exciting 69th anniversary fleet.  This dude is an encyclopedia, and the interview is better than any radio show on the Sydney airwaves – listen to it above with thanks to McConaghy Boats for setting up the call.  Stick around for a video contest announcement in a few hours, Satphone calls throughout the day from around the fleet, and of course we’ll be getting you all the action from the finish line as the leaders get in this evening, with possibly even a live stream.
