Gold Coast Australia sailed with good wind throughout the nigh and into the morning making good speed down the Mexican coast. Unfortunately our speed was not as good as the yachts closer inshore and they made a few miles on us over night.
As the sun rose into ANZAC day we paid our thoughts and Wayne Read conducted a short service as we hoisted the Australian Ensign and lowered it to half mast and observed two minutes silence.
Light winds plagued us for the majority of the morning but as the wind shifted further to the west it began to increase again, and in the afternoon we had to change to our medium weight spinnaker which we held until just after sunset.
