- VOR STW Fleet
You’ll be in front of me soon, Pook; you’re in faster wind. I’m staying this side of the line, though; when everyone has to start turning in, the ones below the line will be facing the wind more head-on.
I don’t like the way Aldabra and Ariadna, previous leg winners, are way up to the North, though…
Is he better looking?
Definitely the most rational explanation, actually.Posted 9 years agoLord SummerisleMember

as you’ve guessed thought i’d try something different.
it could turn out very badly… or it could go really well.. but i looked as the position of the Ice Gates after New Zealand which seem to stop you getting into the good winds further south – as per the Vendee Globe race, and alot of tacking needed on the prevailing winds to the north of Australia and NZ – so thought i’d keep north of the Tropic of Cancer, till sometime nearer USA, then cut down through the doldrums.Posted 9 years ago
But its a much longer course. so while the winds may get me more speed, it might not be enough to offset the more direct route.
