Well that was an interesting night! we reduced sail periodically from full main and kite down to just the No.2 as the weather deteriorated and the squal turned into squals. We only got 39 kts accross the deck max but it felt like more with the wave patterns and torrential rain. Still we got the decks washed and nothing busted so all is still good. Looks like the weather may go light up ahead so currently looking at options to slip south in the hope of stronger breeze.
I believe we have just passed the 2/3 rds mark and so have ust 1/3 to go and are currently chasing Northern Child for that 3rd place!
