Nobody has ever come up with a great idea after a second bottle of water.

The fleet are having a dream run with weather so far... (ok a 20-30 knot send downhill may be better...but can't complain about what they are getting after the last two big round island races run by SSANZ)

I'm loving the way Div 4 is lining up. Be nice to get a commentary off each boat to suss what their thinking is.

Don't think I'd like to be where Berenice is and would prefer to be where Pepe is. Smart thinking on CC with the drifting west track. Gonna be fun to see the boats lite up when the breeze kicks in especially if it's got any Nth in it.

Really? CC's move looked only to drop them back. Berenice cut the corner and made a gain. With wind shifting right the fleet will lay through... Berenice doesn't look like a boat to boogie so reducing distance is the way to go

Added bonus for CC is they have placed themselves perfectly to be the first boat in the fleet to have the breeze go forward..... DOH!

Perhaps the head only works on one tack or they just wanted a change of scenery :lol:

Glen, I don't think Cool Change have tacked again... just experienced a big header. Now pointing at Berenice's transom. The fleet should all still lay the corner...just going to be a little tighter than earlier forecast... should be fun once past Egmont (at least for a while)
