Cinderella! Beware, Midnight Approaches!

What the heck does that mean?

At this crucial time in the race?!?

You think I've gone crazy watching this race for two days, right?

Well, Cinderella's life changed at midnight; right? ...Kinetic V, Rage, and the rest of the fleet inside the Strait will have their worlds change at (close to) midnight, also... 11:43 pm to be exact.

What happens at 11:43 you ask?

If you've been reading along, you know that the tide will change from slack to ebb, and continue to build throughout the night. AND, the wind tends to die at the most inconvenient times in this race.

If that happens, Kinetic V and/or Rage and the rest of the fleet will be "bucking the ebb tide" in light air all the way to the finish, or until the tide changes!

Not a great place to be, but they (Kinetic V and Rage) are SO close! We'll see...
