The Race

11 June 2009 | 170 miles from Palma
Jonathan
So we closed the gap to within a mile of the Oyster - right on his tail... then he did an abrupt course change falling off 30 degrees to the North and separating from us by 2 miles then returning to his course. He saw us coming, I know it. It was a desperate act by a desperate opponent to try to clear his air that we were most certainly going to steal as we went by. Now we travel on parallel courses 2 miles apart in the final leg towards Palma.

Now the wind has gone soft again so it is a battle of the motors, he is pulling away a bit but we are holding our own. If the wind fills and goes north as forecasted we will have a better angle and will undoubtedly come in hot over the top, yes that is the plan, we will stick with it and prevail!

Next report tomorrow….

Today’s trivia the last question of the contest… for all the marbles: How Long is a Chinese name?
