By 2 PM we had passed Pyewacket to Leeward, sailing lower and faster in general. I think that we anticipated the heading puffs better than they did, making small gains with each puff. Now the wind is up to 25+ knots and both boats are surfing the big North East Pacific waves seeing boat speeds of 20+ knots consistently. Its going to be a 30 hour sprint both teams push hard. We’ve learned from our early mistakes and plan to be both smart and fast!
