Lat: 26 38 North
Lon: 149 37 West
Course over ground: 220 degrees magnetic
Speed over ground: 15 knots

At sunset, we jibed on what could be a 500 lay line to Honolulu. Now its mostly port jibe. Unfortunately, it’s pretty light, with winds between 16 and 19 knots most of the time. We were hoping for 25+ trades closer to the islands as we believe that we have an advantage in heavier surfing conditions. This is probably going to make it very tough to beat boat for boat Zephyrus 86. Nevertheless, we sure are going to try very hard until we cross the finish line. There are about 36 hours to go and they are going to be very intense.
