The Spin Goes Boom
We had a great run last night, probably averaging around 8 knots so far and would have been much higher had it not been for a lull around sundown yesterday. We carried the chute all night and were making some brilliant ime but then blew it out at dawn. No chance of repair in route so we're double headsail reaching and still making 8+ knots, often exceeding 10 surfing down a wave, sailing a little higher to the breeze.
