Who ever came up with the idea of an upwind race in Open 60’s ???

 

Hello from Spirit of Canada It’s been day three of banging and splashing our way upwind. Who ever came up with the idea of an upwind race in Open 60’s. Anyway I feel that the trade winds are much stronger right now, maybe because we are going upwind has something to do with it...

 

 

It’s been day three of banging and splashing our way upwind. Who ever came up with the idea of an upwind race in Open 60’s. Anyway I feel that the trade winds are much stronger right now, maybe because we are going upwind has something to do with it. Not much opportunity for passing anyone, most likely it will be along procession up to France and the finish line. The fastest boat will depend on how long the skipper can stay on deck while getting a fire hose shower every 30 seconds. And I notice the water is getting colder as well.  Inside the boat you must hold on all the time as the boat lurches around a lot, especially when you are trying to get your gear on. Sleeping is almost impossible but it still does happen after getting so tired you just lay down in the bilge, listening to the water rushing by just an inch or so on the other side of the hull.

Take Care
