> Good day everybody! VARUNA is in fabulous conditions on the way to point alpha. Last night the wind dropped and we kept our course close to the coast of Canada with SHAKTI all the time close to us but in front and for a few hours out of sight. At the moment we are in nice reaching conditions with SHAKTI behind us to windward.

> The weather could not be better. The sun is shining, everybody outside with shorts and almost no water on deck.
> The boys and the boss are happy and working hard to keep the high speeds.

> It's the third day at sea and we are still only peeling between our kites. Apart from the start we haven't used our jibs so far. After the on deck shifts everybody is tired and sleeping very well although the sound of the winches is enormous under deck and the work on the grinder is quite hard. All in all perfect sailing on VARUNA.

> Tomorrow there will be a party on board. We have a birthday child. It's Finn's 29th birthday. You are all invited! But make sure you bring some beers, a barbecue and something to grill on it. Not that our freeze dried is bad, but a nice steak would be awesome.

> Stay tuned!
