Passepartout

I noticed a comment asking about Passepartout. They accidentally took their tracker out of tracking mode just before the race. Although we asked the start folks to try to reach them, apparently they were not able to do so. All boats have been directed to reset their units every 24 hours.  We hope that they do so sooner rather than later, but there is no way for us to communicate this to them at this point. To our knowledge, they are still out there racing.
