Canard Coming Around the Corner at Warp Speed!

Winds have built significantly since sunset at the mouth of the Strait of Juan de Fuca; they are now SSW at 21 knots.

The boats at the turn are coming in fast, and the conditions are changing rapidly. After two days of light air complacency, these crews will have to re-energize themselves in order to get to the finish in good form. It looks like it might turn into a rough and tumble ride down the Strait. It's no surprise, really.
