    Looks like The wind has gone back and Boris dropped the j2. Up to 20 kts https://exocet.cloud/grafana/d/bsbc_5MGz/malizia-public-dashboard?orgId=15&from=now-24h&to=now&theme=dark&kiosk

    Is it possible to use the polars to simulate a transpac race? Not sure how to get historical weather for the race date, but it would be interesting to know what a modern IMOCA potential would be for the down wind slide. There was a video on Comanche’s transatlantic record run where Stan Honey talked about routing weather for years of historical data. Pretty cool.

    Alex should stop on Tristan da Cunha. Forecast 10 kts south wind on Sunday. Grab a pint at the Albatross Bar.

    40 kt delivery - that is an improvement over my experience.

    What does it look like at SSYC today?
  11. What is the approximate weight of a foil?

    The cradle appears to be chained to the deck and sitting on blocks. Blocking seems odd.

    Forecast would have made an interesting race for the foiling IMOCA 60s.
