Great days sailing yesterday, kite up all the day, making a steady 9 kts, surfing up to 12 kts. Then in the middle of my (Adam) watch, in 11 kts of breeze, and a nice calm sea, we blew the kite. It is ripped across the top, and blew out of the tapes. Hopefully it can be repaired, but not until we reach Antigua.
Oh well, we now have the little jib out, and are running dead downwind, making between 6 & 8 kts. 576 miles to go at n/n UTC.
