The most interesting has just begun
In the race The Azores and Back Yacht Race (# AZAB2019) the most interesting stage began, write our colleagues from #Esmeralda OK. And it's not that the finish is close.
Starting from yesterday, the tail wind changed the head wind, and in the next couple of days it will gradually slip to the north, leaving behind a zone of weak winds. For Mark Slats and Susie Goodall it is very important not to fall out of the wind zone.
Some skippers, in anticipation of the east wind, decided to take a little west of the general course in order to have a more comfortable position for the final breakthrough to the finish. It seems that Ohpen Maverick is following the same plan.
