Update: Monday 2:00 AM
At this point in time, Bill is about 12 miles behind the leader and is 1 1/2 knots slower. With only 75 miles to go, I predict he will not finish in the top 3… but, in racing, there are a lot of ways for the others to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory..
Speed: 5.0 knots @ 334.1

note: the red line is called the “rhumb line” which is the shortest distance between the start and finish line. The boats are moving at 45 degrees to this line because they cannot sail directly into the wind. The wind is blowing directly down the rhumb line. Once they pass the dot on the rhumb line, they will move a lot faster toward the finish sine the wind will help them instead of opposing them. [rhumb in French means rum]
