Looks like they are still moving, so that's a good sign. Hope it's nothing serious, but it must be pretty major if they are turned and hauling ass toward the coast.

Showing a nice big blob right around where they are. Guessing that might have something to do with it.

We spent too much time looking at a 34.5 mph record (thinking it would be easy) and not the 780 miles of open ocean they had to run in.
The guys are the best of the best, best boat/power, best electronics so we know they're OK and safe.
Looks like headed for home but doing the right thing considering conditions.

The previous post of having local boats/people watching for them.......w/help......., HUGE!

Fingers crossed.

im sure they are fine as far as there health... the only thing that would make them turn back would be amount of fuel or if they knew they were not going to beat the record so then there would be no reason to keep going.
