As the fleet of the Celebrity Monaco to Miami fleet close in on their goal its possible to start speculating about podium positions. As can be seen seen from the chart above the leaders are fast approaching the Bahamas.
To increase interest in the race, the route specifies that the boats must sail between the islands of the Bahamas, which should lead to some interesting navigating.
In the lead is currently "Red Hot" from two of the Chilli Peppers. Close behind is "Old Farts" sailed by Mick Jagger and Rod Stewart, while the surprising third place goes to "No Knickers" sailed by Britney and Paris. Many didn't think the latter would get to the start line let alone cross the Atlantic.
But what is this! A news flash from our special correspondent Buff Staysail! Let's hear what ol' BS has to say.....
Howdy folks! Its Buff Staysail here, Buff by name and Buff by nature!!
Yes, there is yet another scandal from those wacky celebrities racing their Open 60s across the wide oceans.
In the daily update from Britney she dropped the bomb shell that she had just got married yet again! But how could this be if she was alone apart from Ms Hilton for company (a circumstance I for one wouldn't say no too)?
The race committee quickly sent out a spotter plane that noticed their boat was being accompanied by a support 60 foot gin palace of a Sunseeker.
Seems like Paris and Britney were staying day to day on the Sunseeker, only going over to the Open for the odd 5 minute shooting. During the stay Britney and one of the crew got close and were married by the skipper only a few days ago!
Now she wants a divorce and the lawyers are looking into the possibilities under maritime law.
Of course this means automatic disqualification - not the first but will it be the last?
I hope you show this photo I got of the loving pair, JP [Ed: no chance, not family viewing by any means]
This is Buff Staysail, signing off.
