It's always nice to start the race on a good note. As I showed up to the boat, crew were already rigging a pump to the forward bow bilge after having discovered many, many gallons of water underneath the inspection port. Great get, guys! That saved us a few hundred pounds. On a roll, we decided to take a look at the chutes that got yanked out in a panic when the water was discovered. Light winds let us hoist at the dock to discover two small tears quickly patched with stickyback. It will beuch nicer looking at a repair for the next 160 miles then a rip about to blow up!
