Up + onto Yellow Brick first thing … you just wouldn’t believe how addictive armchair sailing can be. Old Pulteney + Switzerland finished last night + Team Garmin are within sight but waving on the wrong side of the finishing line. That wind hole has sucked in everybody so far – libations to the gods that it moves or Jamaica has a strategy by the time it is our turn to shoot the black hole.
You probably cannot imagine how competitive it is in the apartment over the progress of the last 3 boats – the 4 of us being crew members of Jamaica, PSP + Mission Impossible (sorry Performance). Jamaica are in stealth mode – so could be anywhere – but the other 2 are 400 nautical miles out +/- a bit. All 3 crews are now predicted to finish Sunday afternoon.
Am I more excited or less frightened over the adventure/ordeal to come? Probably both.
