I presume if readers want to follow R2AK they have been, so I don’t say much about it. But if you forgot the race is on, it’s turning out to be very interesting. The lead boat, at about the 2/3 mark, is a monohull with 8 women crewing.

In fact, the three leaders are monohulls, the other two are 4-man crews. It’s been tight among them for three days.

If you have a boat big enough to hold a large crew, it offers a lot of advantages. Like rest and sleep. And a chance to prepare decent food.

The big race boats aren’t in this one, so it won’t be a ridiculous blowout that the race has been in the past.
