Admirals Cup: 1st offshore exposure

 

For the Admirals Cup it was the first taste of offshore sailing.  After this offshore race the team standings
are as follows.

Of note is the damage suffered by the USA's IMS big boat Idler.  A grounding which occured while sailing upwind at 7.9
knots has left the Idler team with an extensive job list which reads as follows: .   Damage to the interior of the boat includes extensive delamination in the bilge area where the structure supporting the keel is bonded to the hull of the boat. The lead ballast exterior is flattened where it struct the rock. There is also damage to the trailing edge of the keel. At the keel to hull joint, the fairing needs to be repaired.

Additionally Idler needs to head to the container for a new wheel.  This due to as Idler impacted Ken Read went through the wheel and Jim Bray through the side of the wheel.
