Cabo Race Report #4

Ok. There were seven very nervous guys onboard at roll call time this morning. We’d spent hours literally drifting and doing nowhere last night. Lucky for us it seems that most of our fleet did as well.

Interesting to see that all of the leaders shared very similar strategy regarding where to be come sunrise. We were all basically on the same longitude line at roll call.

Today was a much nicer day of sailing. Usually had about 10 knots and worked our way up to Cedros Island at about sunset. Had hoped to see some breeze acceleration around the point, but none to be found.

Deb – the boys are going through the food pretty fast. It seems that when the wind is this light we get bored and the food goes faster!! So, its pretty clear that we won’t be needing those hotel rooms on the seventh. It is also clear that we’ll be finishing the race with a bottle of mayonnaise and some chili!!

Hoping for a good day. Having fun!

-Jim
