If this was already posted, please delete but I don't remember seeing it.

On Instagram maxprice3 posted a video in Hong Kong giving wrong directions to the skiers.

The buildings between the photogs resembles the Rincon Hill towers. I'd say the boat they were on was halfway between SF and Yerba Buena island and south of the bridge. Sources:

Here is some information on the "jump" comment.  The racers left the kayaks via zodiac boat (Pier 40/South Beach Harbor/AT&T Park).  They arrived at Pier 15/Exploratorium approximately 1 hour later.  During this 1 hour (maybe at the 45 minute mark?) I overheard one of the waiting production staff say, "The first team just jumped."  That was all I heard and no other context.  So wherever this "jump" was, they had to be able to get from Pier 40 to Pier 15 by boat with the "jump" in between.  The quoted picture of the skiers was taken at Pier 15 when they got off the boat and they don't look wet.

I don't think this was posted.

Found a small article in french about TAR's visit to Saint-Tropez.
According to the article, they played boules (=pétanque I think ?) at Place de Lices.

A blog post about Reykjavik fwiw:

Afterward we went to a brewery near the shipyard called Bryggjan Brugghús (great food and decor), and on our way we saw some Amazing Race contestants running toward the boats (spoiler alert!).
The restaurant mentioned is next to Fiskihöfn harbor.

Had a walk around Aberdeen in Hong Kong earlier this week, where racers went after their clue at the Peak. The following information is compiled from a few different accounts, some of which may have been our race, some of which may have been something else completely:

- Teams were directed to Kwun Hoi Path, about a 400m walk along the waterfront from the Jumbo Dock used in TAR 17.

- Teams went south on boats from Kwun Hoi Path. This brings them towards the floating restaurants and yacht marinas in Po Chong Wan, instead of the old boats to the west of Kwun Hoi Path featured on TAR 17. Hopefully this means we won't be seeing a switchback of the sampan Detour in TAR 17.

- A new company none of the locals were familiar with was hired to provide the boats and drivers.

- Both the Jumbo and Tai Pak floating restaurants were used. (We've seen the Jumbo before in the Australian and Chinese versions.) The top decks were decorated to look like gambling dens. Were they going for the Macau casino vibe from Skyfall?

- Fireworks/cannons/guns were fired from the boats.

What do you guys make of this? Perhaps something like the gambling riverboat task in Louisiana from TAR 8, coupled with the fireworks task in Mexico from TAR 28? (I've been waiting to see a mahjong task feature on a Hong Kong leg!)



Also popped by Antwerp last month. EVERYONE remembers the crazy people in the fries costumes, but no one knew anything else.

Found out that Neobie in Chinese means "f*king awesome"! No, really. Look it up!

The TAR 30 Finale concluded at the USS Hornet in Alameda  with the Final Mat taking place on the Flight Deck.


The Final Three Teams picked up their clues at the San Francisco City Hall and arrived by taxi to the HORNET.


There was a Clue Box beside the ship.


Teams changed into Olive Green/Brown jumpsuits and heavy boots.
