As the hours pass, so do the miles, but not the wind is not as forecast. We have gone from a good 20 knot winds to 5 knots of wind and winds from a variable direction, making us have to fight harder to get closer to Cape Town before Monday.
Most, if not all the yachts will be in over the weekend and it would be nice to join them and get Qingdao prepped for the next leg. As we have been racing much more to the north then the rest of the fleet, we have had no damage so will be just servicing in Cape Town and re stocking the food for 22 people for 28 days which will take most of the time.
And we are almost there to enjoy for some biltong and beer..
