The yacht LAWLESS continues to be unable to commuicate with Taupo Maritime Radio via sat phone.

They have not been able to complete a sched during the race without the assistance of VHF relay via another yacht in the fleet.

LAWLESS shore crew have ensured all is OK with the sat phone account, however again tonight they were not heard from.

Currently, the Race Committee have no safety concerns for the boat or crew, due to being able to view thier progress via the tracker, however, if any changes in the yachts performance occur, the RAYC safety plan will immediately be intiated with the Rescue Cooridination Center NZ.
