    still in front and slightly to leeward of Vestas I believe. Vestas basically following same track but still closing I suspect. Akzo to windward of the Vestas track DF rotating forward around them in better breeze.

    Scallywag getting nervous I reckon. I have their lead down to around 24nm with Vestas and DF in the groove and consistently sailing a few clicks deeper. 200nm to the top of the Philippines and they will hit the lighter patch first with the decision to gybe or not.

  14. Raz, interesting point about the growth. Does look as though they have been listing/lying for a while. Would be keen to know what antifoul they use though, looks like a damn good promo for someone for 5 months worth of drifting.
