Starbo Sighted
Having set off nineteen hours ahead of us we were completely taken aback this morning, that we have caught up with Starbo. She is a 43 feet Benetteau and has considerably longer waterline length than us and should be much faster. Cedric says their auto pilot is not coping with the conditions. They are hand steering during the day and reducing sail at night to enable the pilot to cope and them to have a more relaxing night. Luckily everything is working fine for us, these are the conditions WD was built for, slicing through the waves, full sails set and pilot in full control. We shared our weather and planned to meet up in Mauritius when we both get there.
