We have had fingers and toes crossed all week for wind to get back home for brekky in bed on Dads Day and it seems we might be lucky..
Current models fairly well aligned with breeze from Easterly quarter building from 7 knots up to, gusting 27 knots at midnight.
Note to SSANZ .... Course 2 please not reachy reachy out to Little Barrier and back.

No dramas or good action to report really. Last seen heading East and getting along OK. Multis flying hulls easily so they were off.
Watching Charleston and even at pace when she gets a puff she accelerates bloody fast. Not too shy in popping up a hull either, but neither was Taiping when she dived into a dip behind a tacking 888.

Longhaul fleet sailing up the Coro coast
Multi fleet around LB and heading home already by the looks
The best sailors do it two handed

Meanwhile on faster coyote......
Was interesting for us when the furling line on the fro jumps off the furler. was instrumental in getting us from dead donkey last back into it. Time to drop and after a skid that shook the sheets off and we have to resort todoing a letterbox drop in a squall with a furler that's trying to knok me out. Fell back off the pace upwind. More downwind next time please.
