PCP will become famous soon enough
yes, I have said already that, I mean that this guys were needed on this race of cold fish with very conservative thought

And here they go again choosing another course different from all other boats. They could just manage that 70nm difference and do the same as the others, it would be a more careful play, but no, they like to play big.

At least, contrary to the huge move on the last change of course, I understand why they are doing it and I would do the same. It looks good to me:

They would be out of the doldrums first and with a stronger wind. The question is why are not the others doing the same? Heard mentality and lack of trust on those crazy rookies?
