Perspective

When I spoke with Bill this morning I expressed my disappointment that California Girl had resumed her position in fleet ahead of Cirrus. This is an old discussion between the two of us!
Bill had the perfect response, "We are 100 miles in front of the next boat in our fleet, 200 miles in front of the one after that and 400 miles in front of the one three behind us. As far as I know there is no trophy for beating California Girl."
They were making 7.5 kn. when we spoke and were about to change sails and gybe (again!) so we didn't talk long. The crew takes such good care of me - told him he had to call or I would worry. Thanks, ladies!
Latest prediction on this end has Cirrus arriving at oh dark thirty on Friday morning. If accurate they may be tired but they will make it to the awards banquet. Sure hope so!

I'm with you on that one. Although there's no trophy, there would have been a certain inner satisfaction
in beating California girl to the finish!
