One boat - the Tayana 37 Miramar - remains at sea after departing one week after the main fleet thanks to a few last-minute repairs. At the last position report at 1600 on Wednesday, November 21, Miramar was still 191.8 nautical miles from Tortola.
Forty-two boats are due to start the 23rd Caribbean 1500 rally on November 4 in Hampton Virginia. Thirty-six boats will be heading for Nanny Cay Marina, and six boats will make up the ARC Bahamas fleet, bound for Bluff House Marina on Green Turtle Cay in the Abaco Bahamas.
All but two of the 35 monohulls and 6 catamarans will be sailing in the Cruising Division, enjoying fun competition using World Cruising Club handicaps. This simple and free-to-use system allows boats of all types to be evenly matched and even takes into account motoring hours, allowing boats to keep moving in light airs or heavy swells.
