First afternoon report from the Swan 45 Plenty: We’re past Block island and heading for a warm eddy located just ff the Continental shelf. The wind is out of the northeast, and we’re moving along quite nicely with a Code Zero up. It’s really foggy, with visibility down to around 200 yards. About an hour into the race I heard a tug and tow try to get in touch with the 159-boat fleet in the fog. The captain was trying to head for Long Island Sound, but the entire fleet was in his way. A few of us whowere monitoring channel 16 gave him a heads up, and he seemed resigned to his fate; waiting for the fleet to go by. The mood aboard Plenty is good. We all enjoyed the spectacle at the start-what a scene.
