July 13. Fresh Breeze.

8AM from the crew: Well we had a good sail and have maintained 3rd in our class . Brilliant is1st and Peregrine is 2nd. Boats to the south are a serious threat for us. There still over 1900miles to go. Relentless is 1st in class and 1st in fleet. We will down load the wx and evaluate our options. So far we are still hopeful since there is still a lot of miles to go. We are still worried about the Hobie33- (reminiscent of 2005) Team BS
As of the 1AM tracking data, Div VI is a much happier fleet than they were yesterday. At this report they were all on headings of about 220 (directly southwest) with boat speeds between 6.5 and 8.5 kts. Much better to be moving fast! ALSO just in: The Whale Photos. BS was having challenges e-mailing photos, but our brilliant boys have worked it out! Looks like they encountered whales and porpoises on 7/10!

Hi Russ,

Just like we talked about, if it was light the boats to watch out for would be the J and Hobie. Still along way to go keep it up.
