PCP will become famous soon enough
I envy you . This year I am without a boat. Have to wait till the summer.

Jeanne strategy turned out just ok. She maintains about the same position and the winner of the night was the leader, Armel Tripon that has made a bold change of direction, going East. It paid out, he got wind again. He is the fastest at this moment.

But just ahead there are very interesting different route options. I believe that we will see some going more near the Portuguese coast. I have never saw Cabo São Vicente without wind, and I believe that I am not the only one that knows that. If they do that they can have more wind and, after passing the Portuguese coast, have the wind on a better angle.

Sam Davies that was one of last night winners is on a good position to try that move...in about 4 to 6 hours.

Paulo

PS- Marty, have you tried to go back and forward with the cursor on the bottom of the map?
