It appears that the ICNZ tracking site is currently down, but when I last looked there was a ( multihull? ) showing 18.1 knots in a 27 knot breeze, He will be home in no time at all!!

Looking ahead, the wind tracks quickly to the east leaving the rest of the ex New Caledonia fleet in much lighter airs.

I imagine she is sailing into some boisterous conditions about now...
