Bridge First Sight!

Tuesday at 9:40 am central: The bridge is starting to emerge from the fog at 1.5 miles! Normally we can see the bridge from 20+ miles.

Kevin, Jake, and Todd figured the secret to down wind performance: We need a spinnaker cut for down-wind! They were sailing faster than a Catalina 320 with a symetrical spinnaker (racing division).

Other than an ore-ship sighting at close quarters and making good time, the rest of the night was uneventful.

Next post: the finish!
