Hence no live feed. “There will be an online stream after the event,”
Totally understandable move IMO.

Wish them the best of luck. I still think the smart decision would have been to keep Ben in the boat.

I wish them the best of luck... though I am inclined to revert to my previous prediction. Be safe.

I'd love to see them smash the 180 mark and hopefully get the 200 as well.
First day out planned for today and the main event on Saturday, that's a big goal in such a short time.

Go guys, stay safe.
