In a bit of stunner, Crossfire has apparently dropped out of the Vic-Maui Race. I received an email from navigator Bruce Hedrick saying that the wind instruments and Windex were lost due to violent masthead motion. The announcement was also made on vicmaui.org. This came after some hard reaching and blowing out the A4 spinnaker at 28 knots.

We’ll have all the detail and a report on the race to you asap.
