Well the strategic play is on and it will be like that for at least more a day or two.

I had said I did not know who was right, Armel more to the East or Jean-Pierre more to West. Well, it seems it was Armel that won a lot of miles to Jean-Pierre but François, slightly West was the big winner. He won 20Nm to the leader (Armel). It is now at only at 34Nm...but has been at only 25.5K and is losing again

The weather pattern is complicated for all and Jean-Pierre, now at 159Nm is going even more to the West (big gamble) while Alex is closing on him (only 6Nm away) sailing much more to the East.

Interesting stuff and a nice way to learn ocean navigation, I mean rooting.
