Epiphany - Day 7

It’s almost sunrise on our final morning before Bermuda. We survived the cold front better than most the fleet. Many reported torrential rain and lightning with strong 30knots wind. Somehow, for sure not skipper skill, we found a little hole and had hardly any rain, no lightning and only 10 knots of wind. We had to motor a bit b it crew were happy to avoid the worst of the weather. 

Still it was a long night for me. Up and down a lot checking the radar which whoever was on watch and reefing/unreefing in case of high winds. 

At the moment we are crusing in at 7knots on a beam reach. Touching distance behind us is Chiron another ARC boat and looks like we will arrive together. Looking forward to a walk, some nice food and a long long sleep. 

Another amazing achievement. 900+mile ocean passage. Possibly the hardest so far as we had to find ways to sail and not just head downwind. I’m grateful for a good and happy crew and a solid boat. All did super 👌 on this leg.
