A Fleet Breaks Away!

Well, it took an entire day to do it, but it appears that all of A fleet has now moved north of the B fleet.

Fleet A1 Update:
Kinetic V is still in the lead and moving well in the morning breeze. Already clocking speeds in the 7's this morning, Kinetic V is sticking to the coast and soon to round Cape Flattery. Still about 10 miles ahead of Rage, Kinetic V will need to keep her speeds up in order to save time on her competitor, who has closed a considerable amount of distance in the night.

Fleet A2 Update:
Panama Red, Time Bandit, and Anam Cara are currently fighting it out boat for boat, and have been exchanging tacks all night. Free Bowl of Soup, Hana Mari, and Night Runner are pulling away from Class B leaders Rain Drop and Blade Runner as the breeze fills in. Most of A fleet is at the mid-way point, and it already appears that the breeze is a little fresher this morning than yesterday. This will get interesting at the turn!
