Its been a long frustrating day for the back end of the fleet I suspect. I know these slow days are the most stressfull type of sailing as you cannot leave the deck for fear that you miss an opportunity to make a small adjustment to the sail trim or the compass in order to gain a fraction of boat speed. So I have been on deck since yesterday literally 98 % of the time. I lay down in the cockpit for small naps but thats it. The miles to the finish line look long indeed at 3.59 knots of boat speed. I had a visit from a very large dolphin today, the first of the trip. I'm hoping he or she will bring me some better luck. The learning curve on the Open 60 is very steep right now but slowly it is starting to feel more like the first Spirit of Canada.

Take Care
