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.
