    How does sailing north of the EZ look to You fellow anarchists?

    Oh I thought they had to leave the remaining EZs on starboard. Haha no one is gybing then... Capey can eat his beloved cakes in peace.

    Apart from their sailing skills and knowledge, what’s hitting me the most is how resilient these guys are. Almost no sleep, extreme conditions, such little margins... and they keep giving their 100%! Tough as nails.

    Hahaha Agree, it all comes down to boatspeed and waiting for TB to make the first move. And it seems that Mapfre is improving in the former, DTL down to 0.8nm

    Yeah, because there’s no AC sailors onboard Mapfre (Vila, Xabi, Tuke...) They're going to put up an epic fight.

    Mapfre has only three people on deck. Looks like Xabi is keeping the crew fresh and prepared for the final strike.

    Monohulls built for ocean racing normally have little holes in from of every appendix. The crew can introduce a periscope that allows them to check whether there is anything stuck on the blade of the keel, the daggeboards or the rudders.
