That’s a quote from Clean as they struggle in the Mac. But Clean and Mer continue to send in reports from the 101st Chicago Mack race, and already a few boats have pulled out of the 490NM Super mac continuation during a real snoozer of a race so far.
Says Clean, "We are currently 3 NM from the Mackinac bridge: the halfway point of the race. Cold as shit, wearing a survival suit for warmth, and beating in light air in a fucking overweight racing cat."
If the wind is like its been, those 500 NM may turn into more like 700 NM sailed on the race. Check the On The Water Anarchy thread for reports from numerous boats with vid and pics from Nice Pair, brought to you by Point Loma Outfitting and wxrouting.com.
