Yep. Hoping for position updates in the next hour. It looks like the first 24 hours were tough. This from the fastest guy out there...
From the 2010 SHTP site-Log Reports-
"0930 Well the first night is always the worst! In the take-one-for-the-team department, just after roll call with all the head down computer work I was forced to revisit my lunch and dinner with little warning. It was otherwise a dark and slightly scary night, deeply reefed main and tiny headsail in 30 knots the boat still trucks right along. The wind out here is much more than forecast, but as I head SW it is moderating as expected. This morning I am sailing as deep as possible already in large surfing seas, unexpected before the first full day of this race is completed. Still a white headsail though, too much wind for a spinnaker. A few other sick tummies in the fleet, but we remind ourselves that the last half of the race is why we do this event! The weather forecast of the EPAC high is strange, I have chosen a classic route instead of the novel route suggested by routing software. The classic route is recommended by past winners, and when they speak, it is wise to listen."
