This piece was inspired by the single-handed (solo) non-stop round the world yacht race, the Vendée Globe, which I’m currently (obsessively) following daily. The race started in Les Sables-d’Olonne, France 56 days ago and the leading boats have have just rounded Cape Horn and are finally northbound. My wind lines are roughly based on the animated wind map provided by vendeeglobe.org/en/tracking-map of 27 December.
