The start was a bit slow for us as we got glued to the light airs
approaching the second photographers buoy, from then on a fetch under
code 0 then a massive shift and the big kite... reaching all afternoon
and slowly waiting for the wind to pick up...
during the day we passed several boats planing at 9-11 knots in about 18
of true which was fun, now the wind has picked up and we just broached a
couple of times, but everyone on board is quite cool about it and we let
the sheet go and we're off again, not before dipping the long boom in
the water, good fun.
we have to bear off as much as possible which is not easy under
assymetric, but boat speed is up in the 12-13 range.
now about to download grib with iridium for a quick check, then more
detailed analysis once we're in mobile range... the life of the
navigator ain't bad, we just had a short shower and i'm still below in
my t-shirt... more later.
