in to the wild

in to the wild

Wild Thing (currently third elapsed) going right along after the start on Sydney to Hobart, Of course Wild Oats is in the lead. Might these guys win it all? More likely these guys.

Here is Nick Athineos & Rick Christians Steinemann 66 – "The Stick" which had their transmitter taken from them this morning by the race committee after being pulled from the race as the yacht didn’t have the adequate insurance coverage. However after an urgent meeting and securing the required insurance at the last minute, they started the race. Go the Stick.

Speaking of wild, watch this vid for a nice starting line incident. Say, was Mr. Clean driving that media boat?
