We have just changed to a fractional Zero from the masthead Zero. It seems faster and more under control. Wind is up to 24 knots and we seem to be gaining on Delta Lloyd who only has what looks like a genoa up. At this pace it’s less than three hours to entrance to the Sound. Then the fun really begins.
