Finish Alert - 34 Hours Into the 2014 Oregon Offshore: Sol Pacifico and Wave Dancer Approaching Victoria Harbour Now

Never finish a Souffle in the dark I always say... looks like the last two boats with known positions - Sol Pacifico & Wave Dancer are nearing the finish. It's totally appropriate to finish the race of with a nice Souffle, hopefully before sunset.

The pace has slowed slightly with winds Westerly at 15 knots heading towards the finish line; flood tide should help finish the remaining boats.

Souffle's onboard race tracker has not updated since approximately 8 am, at that point they were in the vicinity of the boats now finishing, we hope Souffle will show up at the finish anytime now....same thing happened to Kokopelli earlier today...they've now finished....

Souffle has contacted us at Victoria to report an issue with their gps. All are ok and the transponder has been reset. We are now receiving position information.

Souffle has had a position update!
Just in time, momma was gettin' a little worried.....the Souffle crew are located just Southwest of Point No Point on the Canada side of the Strait....heading towards race Rocks at 2.7 knots of boat speed and riding the flood tide to the finish....updated at 18:32.
