Hi All its 04.00 am and we are approaching Starts point. The wind has built up backed to the NE giving us good boat speed under full main sail and the Asymmetric spinnaker. Crew moral is good as we settled into watches and the focus is on good boat speed, reaching over 10 Knots at time in 12 knots of wind. Excellent start with over 110 miles covered and 1/6 th of the race behind our keel
