The big trimaran wasn’t the only one doing some mid-ocean laminate repair during the Transpac.  From the crew of Phil and Sharon O’Niel’s Michigan-based TP52 NatalieJ:  “It was three nights ago, and we had the A3 up with a tuck and were sending it!  Pitch-black, super scary and I was more than a little relieved when we got to see daylight this AM, even after noticing the crack” wrote navigator and repairman Bora Gulari.  “Brian [Torresen – ed] and I got to work fixing the crack right away – still fighting to the end!”

NatJ sits second in her crowded class of 50-something rockets, at least according to the daily position reports, with first place Beecom starting to leg out.  The Michiganders didn’t notice quite the amount of debris that Lending Club did; “We’ve seen some debris but nothing too dangerous as of yet.  That’s if you ignore the giant green bioluminescent blob we almost hit in the dark a few days ago.  We assume that was a whale and it would have been bad.”
