Drama right on the start line as not only did the Maltese Falson decide to occupy the starting area but our 1st reef pulled away from the mainsail with 10 seconds to go. A wet and bumpy ride up to Green Island before bearing away and un-leashing our fractional reaching sail to spend a lot of time doing 20+ knots en-route to the Barbuda mark. We're currently heading down-wind towards Nevis hopefully clawing back some miles against Paradox with some great VMG and bonus hump-back whale breaches off to starboard. Currently we have 24 knots TWS with 20 knots SOG as we close in on Nevis.
