23rd Nov 2017: A little over one hour delay, as the fleet played ‘follow me’ out of Penang Harbour, until they reached the incoming North Easterly breeze, which quickly reached 10 knots and PRO Jerry Rollin released the classes in reverse order. Immediately it was decision time, to head out to sea or tack over towards the land. As the crews cranked on the sheets, the tacticians realised the seaward course was only 5 to 8 degrees from laying the finish line in Langkawi, so gambled that the breeze would lift them, as they progressed along the course and turns out it paid off handsomely. At the end of the course the yachts that tacked inshore, could measure how much they lost by doing so and it shows up in the results.

“The Uber hack is just the latest example of a widespread culture of lackadaisical cyber practices and a lack of executive accountability – this mischaracterizes corporate risk and cripple cybersecurity efforts. Executives and organisations must be held accountable for both exercising a reasonable standard of care to protect their systems and their data and for discovering and disclosing breaches in a timely manner.”
