In just a few minutes we will have been racing 24 hours. Our distance down the track is not great after too much beating in light air, but at the moment we are beam reaching under sunny skies and an odd southerly wind. We seem to be doing pretty respectably against the two new French boats, who were in sight much of this morning. They seem to be sticking to the northern route around the slow stuff ahead, but I could not resist the temptation of some easy VMG.
Whales heard but not seen. We did see two sea otters about 65 nm outside the GG Bridge, water depth must be in the thousands. Who knew?
