Man, not sure how Sweet Okole is posting those distances. They are flying. So is Aero and Limitless.
Not to take anything away from the boats beating us, but this has been a tough race for elan. Not any one major issue, but a string of issues that kept us all pretty exhausted. Most significant issues are blown spinnakers (4 of 5) and lost wind instrumentation. Pretty lucky we're doing as well as we are. We're down to about 400 miles to go. Right now, we have sunny skies and great breeze with following seas, so hard to complain as we surf down huge waves. Hope to finish sometime friday mid-day.
