Light air is taking its toll

Shortly after Mummbo Jummbo's call, Peulche called. They were motoring through Race Rocks because of the lack of wind.

Just after the call from Peulche, Passepartout also abandoned the race, approximately 1 1/2 miles from Race Rocks. At the time of their call, they were not sure whether they would be stopping in Victoria.

Passepartout told us that the weather at Race Rocks was rainy, with visibility of about 1/2 mile and no appreciable wind. They said that they had really had no wind since Cape Flattery. What wind there was, was not steady enough to do anything.

There were some other boats with them at Cape Flattery when they left by motor.
