> We have now entered our third day, and are still enjoying sunny skies and flat seas. The winds during the last 24 hours have been a bit lighter than we would like, but we still have enough to maintain a decent average speed of around 11 knots.

> Last night around sunset we overtook S/Y Jazz. Although we haven't been out at sea very long yet, both crews enjoyed seeing some of the competition out here. This morning, Jazz was again off our bow as we had sailed different courses during the night.

> Today several of us spent some time up the rigs to make some minor adjustments to the Dynarig system. We installed a full set of 15 brand-new sails in the weeks before the race, so we are still tweaking things a little bit to accommodate the new canvas. Climbing these rigs while at sea is always an experience - since they are freestanding and built of carbon fiber, they flex significantly as the yacht rolls around in the Atlantic swell. Hold-on and enjoy the view!
