Rushour continues to power upwind

All smiles onboard Rushour. Whilst the Drew 15 may have lost their fellow multihull competitors overnight due to retirements, they continue to power upwind at 8-9knots whilst enjoying their self-stirring scrambled eggs and bacon.

Report from onboard state:

18 knots steady NNE, 1m short chop, boat is doing 8-9 knots, since our fellow multi racers retired yesterday we’ve slowed down, looking after the boat.

Last night was 25-30knots NNE, max we saw was about 31 knots. With 2 reefs she was nicely balanced and handling the swell, doing about 10-11 knots from memory.
All onboard are fine. What a pleasant way to travel upwind!
