The ‘EH01’ RORC Transatlantic ’23 Report – Less Than 400nm To Go!
We have finally broken the 400nm to go barrier!! 384nm to be precise to the bottom of Grenada.
We’ve had increased breeze for the past 24 hours or so so we’ve peeled the Hydey kite to the tougher Ullman kite and we are blasting along. The trip top speed record has fallen a number of times – first Neil got 11.87kts, Beana broke right back with 11.95knots, Jenn got an honorable mention with a sustained 11.9knots but actually in the right direction and now Beana got the lead further with 12.47knots!
Now we need to decide when to gybe to head towards Grenada but avoid Barbados.
We’ve recieved emails from our friends across the fleet who have finished already and have enjoyed hearing about some exciting spinnaker blow outs. Cannot wait to see everyone in Port St Louis for beers in a little over two days if we can maintain this progress!
Get the beers cold, we’ll see you soon!
