150 Miles Tonight

March 20, 2013 posted by admin

Off on another offshore training adventure today!

This is going to be a 150 mile run with lots of reaching and some decent wind along the way.  We’ll start off in Lorient and head south east past Belle Ile with our big spinnakers up.  Then, as we get closer to Ile D’Yeu, the wind will get very light and move forward.  The big push will be to get around the Island as soon as possible.  Before the wind builds up for the ride back.  We’ll probably start off with the big kites again, and end up down to a reef and the little kite in 20-25 knots of wind!  An awesome training run to build up for the first race in less than a month’s time now!

    Good luck…stay warm, and go fast!

    Back in Canada, just as it was starting to like spring, another winter storm has covered us in snow again. The first day of spring is looking more like mid january. I wish I was going on an exciting overnight race instead of shovelling snow today.

    Looking forward to your next post!
