Three More Boats approach The Finish - Canard, Bum's Rush & Night Runner

Three more boats have passed Race Rocks and are close to finishing: Canard, Bum's Rush, and Night Runner.

Night Runner was an early leader in the race by coaxing the fleet right towards the shore at Cape Disappointment. Let's say that again - TOWARDS Cape Disappointment - a gutsy move for even the most seasoned sailors.

Leading much of the fleet up the Washington coast, Night Runner definitely had its admirers from the early goings of the race.

It looks like they ran into some difficulty last night in the Strait. We're not sure what happened there, but I'm sure we'll learn in time.

Canard and Bum's Rush have stuck to each other like glue for much of the race. It's got to be a great feeling and spectacle to see these two fine racing yachts finish so close together after such a long grueling race.
