All going better on Fantastica

Class40 / Giancarlo Pedote - Fantastica
Everything is going very well, I had a pretty hard early part of the race. Now things are slow and the sky is a little cloudier. I have between 17 and 18 knots of wind
There is the odd gust, but we are not doing too badly here. I had a lot of damage on the first night but things are better. I am fine and just trying to sail at 100% holding on, not lag behind and believe that you can do it right up to the end!
There is an area of very high pressure that we have to sail round to avoid getting stuck in the area of no wind. There will also be favourable winds to sail south.
It is a matter of negotiating getting round whilst also looking to cover the least number of miles possible on the most direct course.
