Good Morning from Resolute! From what we can tell we made some decent gains on the fleet last night besides Varuna who is designed for these conditions. Looking forward to the position report at 1000 to see where we stand on corrected time. Yesterday we were 2nd in class and 8th overall.
We had a beautiful sunrise this morning and the wind continues to be in the 12-18 knot range. We like the way we have positioned ourselves and in anticipation of the wind continuing to lift us we decided to put up the big gear and send it! After 38 hours w/ the Code Zero and Genoa Staysail we finally put up our 2.5 kite and so far so good. Our average speed is up slightly and the boat has more punch through the waves.
Time to get back to work and win this race.
