In the past 24 hours we have acheived three milestones:
- We reached the most remote point we will get to in this race. 825 miles to Cape Spear, St. John to the west, 825 miles to Great Skelig Island, Ireland to the east and 700 miles to Kap Farvel, Greenland to the north. I have no idea if any of those places even have a port we could get into, but its nice to know where you would have to bail out to!
- We passed the 1000 mile mark, with 980 some odd miles to go to the finish.
- We have had our first upwind work of the entire race.
Currently slapping our way through short chop on our way east, under gray and cold skies.
