OK. Pretty mellow night. Put kite up around 6 or 7 am. Probaly put 7-8 miles on sweet okole since then. They still are barely in sight behind us, and still have a jib. we have sagged a little, but I think we're going 1-2 knots faster and 5 degrees lower. working hard - 3 on shift to help plane more often. we'll do that until wind goes back more.

Limitless continues to set pace. They are about 10 miles closer to finish than we are, but much further south. I think we have about 1 hour to catch up, which we're hopefully doing right now. The race estimator predicts they will beat us by 7hrs, but I don't see it. We'll see how the next 24 hrs go.

Everyone on boat is doing great. No sun, so no power. We may have to either go dark or worse, run the engine. Getting warmer too. Ventured outside without 20 layers of (wet) clothing.

later, jack
