Regards from the Lunatix Upwind sailors!

The race continues to be spectaculary unspectacular with long beat upwind sailing in very comfortable conditions. Since maneuvers are limited to a minimum the crew keeps itself busy with routing (way more spectacular than the sailing so far!), fine-tuning of the boat and keeping the focus up: The pantry comes up with ever new sandwich combinations at noon and pasta creations at sunset in order to keep the spirit up. But these sorts of measures are not half as motivating as the promise to somewhen set a downwind sail again. Bets are taken when this will be the case, though some argue that downwind sailing can be seen as an "urban legend" and not being existent- so maybe we just sail upwind all the way up to Grenada? That may limit the variations of our sandwiches at one point...

That being said, rumours are circulating that some guys on the fast boats may have been a bit to positive when booking their plane tickets from Grenada: The Lunatix travel store advises a rescheduling of all flights to the 14th earliest in order to secure enough time for a proper reception in Grenada- a screenshot of the current wind conditions should count as valid argument to any boss or wife there may needs to be convinced...

to be continued....
