We are just about to leave the dock and start the Islands race just after the warning signal at 1230. All systems are working 100% and we are well prepared.
It looks like it should be wet and windy to start and after midnight when we get around the islands and start cracking off things should settle down and we will be sailing dead down wind in 20 to 25 kts. Routing has us with an ETA Of about 0800 but I think it will be a little later than that as the software doesn’t allow for sea state and reefing.
