For the last 5 hours its been light and hot. Real light. And that is nerve racking because we’re all thinking: “If the Pyewacket guys have 5 knots more wind than we do, we could see our lead evaporate”. There is not much that we can do but to rest the team, sail fast and wait for the next position report.
Lots of snoozing on-board, we just don’t need as many sailors on deck and it’s going to be a long night to the finish. Passed this evening, none of us is likely to get any sleep before the finish. But for now, we’re waiting for the evening position report to see how much ground Pyewacket made.
