How Fast?

Here are some sample boat speeds from sail tracker at 2 pm, May 8th:

ICON - 18.1 knots
OCELOT 16.8 knots
NEPTUNE'S CAR - 15.5 knots
RIVA - 12.3 knots
FREE BOWL OF SOUP - 11.8 knots
KINETIC - 11.3 knots
ANAM CARA - 11.4 knots
TIME BANDIT - 9.4 knots
BLADE RUNNER - 10.8 knots
CALIFORNIA GIRL - 8.7 knots
KOKOPELLI - 9 knots
VELOCITY - 7.2 knots
SIREN - 8.7 knots
KAOS - 8.5 knots
AVALON - 9.2 knots
ION - 9.4 knots
CANTATA - 7.9 knots
PASSEPARTOUT - 8.4 knots

NOTE: These are NOT average speeds or top speeds, just an indication of current individual boat speeds at 2 pm, 6 hours into the race (sorry, if I didn't get everyone).

Shore crews might want to get to Victoria a little earlier than planned if you want to be there when your boat finishes; there's still a long way to go however... We'll see what happens as the fleet starts to turn the corner into the Strait.
