Breaking news from Audi Hamilton Island Race Week 2012 - Sean Langman’s ORMA 60 Team Australia, while racing has just run aground on the edge of the Fitzallan Passage. She is taking a little water, heading back to the marina now. Not too serious it seems, the boat is now back on its mooring and the crew seem quite relaxed.

The bang asshe hit was not as loud, to be sure, as when Sean's skiff on steroids hit the reef off Plum Pudding Islet in the Coral Sea Race many years ago.

Yesterday a thick blanket of fog delayed the Hammo action but today there was fog early. It disappeared in time for racing. Now there is just moist air, with low cloud. It’s been from 170 at 10 knots, but now it’s going easterly and lighter.
