**With the zero up and flying, our next waypoint was Cape Hatteras. At some point prior to Hatteras, we would reach the western wall of the Gulf Stream and a reported current of up to 4 knots. The sooner we got that current, the faster we would do to the rest of the fleet what Bodacious Dream did to us. As night fell, the wind slowly started to back and increase, and our Mach 40 Class 40 really came alive. The only light on the horizon was Bodacious Dream, and we were determined to catch her by morning. With each knot of new wind, the gap between Dream and us shrunk. By 4 a.m., the call was made to peel to the Code 5 kite to bear off and pass them. With sheer power, Mare was able to sail under and around Dream, giving us what we thought was the lead. Wind speeds continued to increase into the mid-teens and back enough to let us hoist the big kite. From then on, the day was nothing short of champagne sailing.
