13.5 Knots As The First Watch Takes A Break
26 / 12 / 2006 ]
We are now sitting comfortably in 2nd position with Wild Oats still within sight 2.5nm (4.63kms) ahead and outside us.The first watch is getting ready to go below and take a four hour break. The start was uneventful.
A small drama unfolded as we came through the heads, we blew the webbing on the number 3 jib. We put up the number 4 while repairs were carried out below deck.
The number 3 is back up now pushing us along at 13.5 knots of boat speed. The sun is shining and we are running into a swell of about 3 metres with a small amount of water coming across the deck. Dolphins were following Maximus for a while this afternoon and the boat has now settled and we are making good progress. We are all looking forward to our freeze dried Teriyaki dinner and some rest.You can follow our progress using Yacht Tracker on the official Sydney Hobart race site.
