On-Board Dorade – 2/24/2014 1:42:38 P.M. Pacific Standard Time
Around the Barbuda mark. We suffered a bit on the beating in a seaway from the start to York Island, but as soon as we could crack sheets, we got into our reaching modes and hoisted the A3 and Mizzen Jib. We gybed around the Barbuda mark onto the A2 and big mizzen spinnaker. Boat feels great and we are sitting 1st in IRC 3. I suspect when we go back upwind tomorrow, we might have a battle on our hands to hold into the lead.
