Update from Genuine Risk in Montego Bay Race

Just rounding the top of Great Isaac Shoal, entering the Northwest
Providence Channel. Had a great reach across the Gulf Stream, with wind
speeds from 12-16 at 85 degree wind angle and boatspeeds from 15-17. We
were neck and neck with Beau Geste for a while, but in the heavier air
reaching she has some speed on us- hope to make some distance back on her
and Rambler 100 in the forecasted lighter wind ahead. 60 miles down in 4
hours- 751 to go!
