GODZone Chapter 6 winners Tiki Tour charged about all day today keeping up with the top two teams and Mike Kelly was a bit grumps about not being able to continue on paddling overnight when they heard the news at Kollats Crib the Waiau was closed for the night. ” We wouldn’t have busted our legs so much if that was the case – we didn’t calculate for that,”he said. “It does change things up because other teams are going to catch us up and all our effort today is nullified.”
Captain Tom Lucas said he had picked the worst line ever over the Titiroa tops and that the boys made him run to make up for it. He was surprised to hear they were tracking 7 hours ahead of the race directors estimates. “We don’t have a strategy as such but are just pushing on. The highlight is going to be getting some sleep tonight!”
