Stephane Plihon is racing double handed to Hawaii on his Moore 24 for a very
good cause
and here is his second day report.

2 and it is cloudy everywhere but we have wind, about 12-15knts. We’re
moving along under our jib top. We can see 2 boats around us but too
far away to know who they are. We continue to change watch every 2 hours
during the night and every 3 to 4 hours during the day. Slowly getting
into a rhythm. It will be much nicer when we can get rid of our foulies…
but I guess we have to wait for that moment a little longer. Hawaii
has to be earned…

Still no SSB radio but we do relays with Nathalie and Nathen from Elise
through Sat phones. Great competitive spirit! We will have to buy them
a lot of mai thai once in Hawaii to thank them. Recidivist crew: I’m
sure you guys are so ready for tomorrow’s start. We’re going to try
to keep our lead all the way to Hawaii… Make sure you make some pit
stops once in a while along the way. Special ‘hello’ to the Children’s
Hospital & Research Center Foundation staff. Hope you’re enjoying
the race so far… a lot more to go. Above pic: just a few items to
sort through when loading the Moore 24 for a two thousand mile voyage…
