Stand by mode

In the words of napoleon ” dress me slowly for I am in a rush.”

Currently in stand by mode, waiting for the wind to fill in offshore, before Brian and I race each other on our sister ship boats to hawaii. It will be interesting to see how close we arrive, will there be a difference of hours or days?? I have a little bit more weight on board, but a furling jib, easier for me to reef and un-reef in squalls. I wonder if that time will all add up, to a sizeable lead across the ocean? Also have an old chart from 2007, with six of my eight crossings between hawaii and the main land, will be cool to see the difference in daily runs from my previous solo trip to hawaii, it took me 21 days last time, pretty slow, so I’m sure I can beat that time.
