A Whole New World

Miranda Merron has been having a great tussle with Geodis over yesterday but she eased ahead yesterday evening and this morning Fabrice Amedeo is back in front, but only just. Here is Miranda's morning report Upwind all day yesterday, sailed in sight of Geodis all day - he was ahead of me before dark, but I got him back when the front went through some time after dark. I'm not sure which one of us is closer to Guadeloupe, but I am maybe a mile closer to the trade wind.
There wasn't much to the front in the end, and behind it there is a magical world which bears no resemblance to the past few days. Full moon, light enough to trim the sails by,  hardly a cloud in the sky, the sea is calming down with only the occasional wave getting dumped in the cockpit. Campagne de France is reaching along  under full green and white sails, off in search of the trade winds. Perhaps they even exist!
