Found a site Wayhoo.com and as close as I can figure, they have 125 more miles to go.

They have about 2 hours and 12 minutes if they can maintain 60+ mph through the rougher stuff ahead of them. From the wave forecast site, at least they are riding with the waves and not against them.

Do you think they got held up for a while? Looks like it took a lot longer to travel from points 10-11 than it did from 9-10. Appears close to the same distance. That may explain why it took so long for last update.

it's looking like they are not to far, does someone know the EST arrival time they need to hit to beat the record. And yes this is exciting, of course it would even be more exciting if he took me with him

It looks like they left at 7:22, the old record is 8 hours 36 minutes. Gives them until 3:58 by my best estimate if the leave time is correct.

Hey Donna, next time just run alongside in the BT Condo!
