The race tracker is fascinating as some teams have already tacked and are now heading to south, others seem to hesitate to that move. We are sailing upwind since 36 hours now and trying to figure out when time has come for us tactically to go straight.

In the starlit nights single Squalls eventually come through forcing us to reef and keeping us focussed. The spirit on board is pretty good, but we are all hoping for a sudden wind shift to run downwind into the Caribbean under “Genni” like it was our plan to.
