Transatlantic Race hitting some bad weather

I read this in the news today. These folks are a long way from shore and in some pretty dirty weather. Don't know anything about the race. CCG, RCAF and 2 tankers are apparently going to help. Good luck to the rescuers, not the kind of weather I would want to be sailing IN to.

Re: Transatlantic Race hitting some bad weather

There has been waves after waves/cycles (on and off)of strong winds in the NA for a week...or so.
Not good timing.

Nothing heard from MarkSeaLife for a while...headed to Azores, then Spain....some nasties on his route...

one of markjs friends posted in fb that he has arrived in horta safely despite sailing a bendy toy south of the huge monster storm.
seems he was in dire need of a good cold beer. or 2.

Re: Transatlantic Race hitting some bad weather

Was this weather forecast and just bad timing for the race start? Or did it come as a surprise?
