In the race to The Azores and Back Yacht Race (#AZAB2019) began the most interesting stage, write our colleagues from #Esmeralda OK. And it’s not that the finish line is near.
Since yesterday the wind was replaced by a counter, and he will be in the next couple days slowly slip away to the North, leaving behind a zone of weak winds. To Mark the Slats (Slats Mark) and Susie Goodall (Goodall Susie) is very important not to fall out of the zone winds.
Some skippers waiting for the East wind decided to take a little bit to the West of the General course to have a more comfortable position for the final sprint to the finish. It seems that Ohpen Maverick follows the same plan.
