Paulo,

I do not know the winds around that area much, nor do I have a wind/weather map to look at. BUT, it interesting now that they have all turned slightly south, to see how far apart the boats really are, who is going for what windshift/trade wind or equal.

Had a good sail last night, only hit 6 knots a few times, otherwise 2-5 knots. but got to try a few things with my AS up that in higher winds it would have been harder to try for the first time, like poling out the tack to see how far downwind one can go etc. had a new crew on board too, so lighter can be better. 8am here, so off to work.

Marty
