Twenty-four more hours into this 20th edition of the Pacific Cup and we have continued to gain clarity on how much of the fleet may end up once all is said and done. With several boats beginning to line up their final approaches to the Hawaiian Islands, Charles Devanneaux and co-skipper Matthieu Damnerval look to have re-staked their claim to being the first boat over the finish line.

Another day, and another series of surprises that continue to impact the rankings in this 20th edition of the Pacific Cup. Seemingly with every check-in, the rankings get shuffled, the pursuing boats make gains and the fleets continue to compress. While a handful of boats looked dominant in their divisions as of yesterday's report, Wednesday morning shows that every single fleet in this race is still firmly up for grabs. With much of the fleet past halfway and into a somewhat atypically narrow band of moderate northeasterly tradewinds, the fleet is quite literally being herded to the barn.

A wide range of prizes, trophies and honors for Pac Cup Participants

So, we know that our racers are pursuing the big Maguffin, the Pacific Cup, but that’s neither the beginning nor the end of the story.  Most Pac Cup vets will tell you that the cup awarded for “Best Overall Corrected Time” is kind of a random shot – you have to have started on a “Lucky” day with great weather.

And it’s One Two Three What are we Racing For?
