OK. Settling into a routine. Sunny and windy today, which is allowing us to dry out a bit. Also, waves a lot more favorable, so queaziness has gone away for everyone.

Just got first position reports. Seem to be doing ok. Sweet Okole is about 1/2 mile to weather and 1/4 mile behind us. Seems like we both have the same plan. Bullet just a few miles behind, which in this wind is < 30 minutes.

A few boats had a tough night last night, losing their rigs. Also, just heard that Velocity (J-42 from div B) dropped out and returning home.

We seem pretty dialed in right now. Wind starting to move back, target setting a kite at dawn tomorrow, assuming tonight is as much of a sh#$show as last night. We'll see. Boat also holding up. Lost our windvane last night somehow, but that's the only thing broken so far. We're keeping our fingers crossed.

Hope to be out of site of other boats soon, esecially Sweet Okole. more later. Will try to get pic working.
