Transpac 2013: "July 14, 2013, San Pedro, CA – It’s been almost twenty-four hours now since the last wave of boats crossed the start line, so the entire fleet of 58 entries from eight countries are now on the race course of the 47th Transpac, with the next stop Honolulu. For some this has been a fast trip so far, and for others a mix of fast and slow, but at the moment everyone is moving well down the course, in three distinct groups defined by their start date. The leading group are the slower Division 7 and 8 boats who started Monday and are approaching the halfway point in the race. The wind for them has shifted far enough east that some are already gybing to port to stay on the favored gybe to Hawaii. They are being led as always by the largest boat in that group, Bob Hayward’s Seastream 650 Manatea. At 0900 PDT Manatea was sailing at 7 knots on a heading of 226°, with 1017 miles left to the finish."
