The Singlehanded Transpac is still in the set-up phase early in the race as skippers look toward picking a lane for the crossing from San Francisco Bay to Kauai. Looking at the tracks at race tracking, it’s telling that almost all the tracks were parallel as of mid-evening on Monday (there’s a three-hour posting delay, so that skippers can’t game someone else’s game plan).
The lone exception in routes in that report/time was Al Germain with his Wyliecat 38, Bandicoot. Germain took a sharper left turn than anybody else.
The fact is, Al won’t know for another thousand miles if he’s happy about that.
Odds are, he will be—Kimball
