Go the Cat
Who needs a boom? Puma has been gobbling up the miles since leaving it’s anchorage in the Philippines and, when we last looked, was dead level with Ericsson 4 as the two boats neared the top of Taiwan. What’s more, the gap between cat and telephone was down to 89 miles, after Telefonica Blue had taken a detour to avoid the worst of another lot of nasty stuff. What looked like a walkover for Bouwe Bekking’s boys, a few days ago, has turned into Race On, with Ericsson 3 just 43 miles behind the leader and more than 600 to go. You can see the determination on the faces, in this Rick Deppe pic and there are more here.
