Monday, July 10th looks to be our first finish day! Howard Enloe's ORMA 60 Mighty Merloe continues to perform outstandingly, maintaining a lead over the MOD70s Phaedo3 and Maserati. At the July 10th 0500 HST real time position report, Mighty Merloe was 251nm from the finish, with Phaedo3 at 287 and Maserati at 318. At the average speeds of 20+ knots, Mighty Merloe and possibly Phaedo3 could be finishing before sundown to and get some spectacular Diamond Head finish photos from Sharon Green, Ultimate Sailing.
For the majority of the race, the tracker is on a 4 hour delay for competitive purposes. The tracker will become real time when the boats are within 100nm of the finish.
Check the YB Tracking Leaderboard for updated estimated finish times. Use the dropdown to toggle between monohulls, multihulls or any particular class.
See the Results tab on the website which will be updated as each boat finishes. Calculations of corrected time and ranking within a boat's fleet and overall will be displayed along with their actual finish time.
Boats report their 0500 HST position each day, and the real-time standings are posted as a report each morning.

The majority of boats will be docking at Ala Wai Harbor.

All three multihulls are on pace to break the current multihull Transpac Race record, so the first to finish should be setting the new standard. (Phaedo3 did set a non-race record earlier this summer of 3 days 16:52:03 in run to Honolulu which will not be broken during the 2017 Transpac Race.)
Comanche will need to finish by July 12th at 12:36:19 AM (HST) to break the monohull course record.
Photos and video will be added as boats make their way past Diamond Head towards the finish, capturing beautiful aerial shots of the boats during daytime finishes. Additionally, team photos will be taken of the boats arriving at the dock and we'll look to get some interviews and stories from the finishers throughout the week+ of finishes.
