We are charging for the finish. The gybe last night was perfectly timed and sealed the fate of our nearest competitor. We put 4 miles on him in under 3 hours, and locked in our final advantage on the positioning. We have spent the morning sailing along the island of Molokai, and are now headed straight for the diamond Head finish. We are 26 miles to the finish. Three hours from now we will be at the finish line.
