Marquesas 10

Race fans – watch us closely. Tomorrow, if all goes as planned, we will fly the rainbow spinnaker again. The crew and skipper have been resting up but the comfort phase has ended and we are ready to take on Nica (leader boat) again. 

Unfortunately, she broke her boom vang a day or so ago. Bad things happen to good boats. Still, it’s a race and you race with what you’ve got.

Today we celebrated with cupcakes because we have less than 1,000 miles to go. No major issues with the boat – Joe actually got to nap and prepare for the last third of the race.

I was hand steering to do my part for the race effort so this is a short entry – must rest up and be ready to race!
