Leg 6 – Hello, Fernando de Noronha!

I can’t believe I ran aground.  I saw the islands yesterday when I placed my tack to avoid them, and then I updated my course to catch some better wind last night. Little did I know my course would lead me straight into the islands I sought to avoid!

The rest of the fleet is far ahead and set to finish in the next 48 hours.   I’ll be lucky to put in a finish before the reset for leg 7.

There is no sign of my nemesis, Inquietjg, as I know he’s pushed on ahead.  I am close to a past competitor, Ginger Girl, who looks like she will be my benchmark for racing the rest of this leg.
