90% of life’s adventures are about showing up. The other 10% is sticking with things, no matter how challenging. Yacht racing epitomises this and Swiftsure 2017 is no exception.
Most yachts finished the race in the last 12 hours. At 5:30 PM on Saturday, there are still about 20 boats racing. About half are the Cape Flattery Race, 5 in Swiftsure Lightship Classic (course length 138.2 nm), and about 5 in Juan de Fuca Race.
The question is who will be the last to finish within the time limit of 6 AM on Monday, May 29. The Swiftsure Race Committee will remain on the job until the last possible moment. The last to finish boat will be awarded the Lanterne Rouge.
