What a game! Every minute seems to be counting, and Azure made the unbeliveable move last 24 hours and gained 5 nautical miles on us! They finally got the eastern shift they’ve been chasing as well as increasing wind speeds. We are currently hammering downwinds towards the Kaiwi Channel with about 60 miles to go, but will it be enough – also taking into account the possible compesation Azure is seeking? In about 8 hours we can’t do no more. That’s our estimated arrival time at Diamond Head – and we’ll all have to wait for the Cal40s to reach Hawaii to know the final results.
Sadly, this is our last report enroute. It’s been a blast, but don’t worry – we’ll continue to keep you posted about the thrilling days to come and the on spot details. It’s been a great race, and lots of more stories are to be posted once we’ve settled in Honolulu – but it may take some time depending on the amount of Mai Tais and coconut bikini density. So be patience – please!
Break a leg for us and let’s finish this race in style! Land ahead – ALOHA!
